About this book
A guide for women in business, which fuses anecdotes, lessons on confidence and leadership and practical advice, based on research, data and Sandberg's own experiences. Sandberg is the Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, and this was developed from a provocative TED talk she gave, in which she expressed her concern that progress for women had stalled.
The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. This title draws on author's own experience.
