From the COO of Facebook comes Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, a riveting book that asks: Why do men still hold the majority of top positions in government and industry, thirty years after women became the majority of college graduates? And why are women’s voices still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives?

Sandberg taps her experience at Facebook, Google, the World Bank and the US Treasury to examine these questions. She uses hard data to dig into the roots of the problem and paint a compelling portrait of working women’s lives. She provides advice for women on negotiating, finding mentors, and building a satisfying career. She shows men how they benefit too when they support women in the workplace and at home. With humor and insight, she recounts her own daily struggles to make the right choices for her career and her family.

Sandberg is ranked among Fortune’s “50 Most Powerful Women in Business” and Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World.” She will be in conversation with NPR Special Correspondent, Michele Norris.
