I am compelled forward in the book, listening to her stories, and recounting in my mind so many of my own. I realize many of our experiences are similar. I'm not the COO of Facebook, but I have led a similar life and path to hers. I applaud her ability to stand up and be noticed, and to take a stand for women in leadership. More women need to talk about the issues in hopes that shedding light on them, will in some way, rid us of some of them.
I make it 1/2 way through the book in my first few hours at the beach. I add Sheryl Sandberg to my list of 'aspirational contacts'. This is the list of people that I'd love to get a chance to meet someday. My list is long. I enter them into my Outlook contact database and add a category titled 'aspirational contact'. I wonder if I'll get a chance to run into her at some point. I imagine that I will.When I finish the book, I'll write a review. So far- so good. I like it.
