[Book Review] Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

The book ‘Lean In: Women, work, and the will to lead‘ by Sheryl Sandberg was quiet an intersting book. It was on the top recommended reads for women on Amazon so I thought the book must be full of truth about how women should lead their lives for maximum self achievements.
