Lean In: Women Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
This book has nothing to do with food, you might be thinking. This book by Facebook COO Sandberg is about women and leadership and points out not only the societal obstacles women face on the way to the top but behaviors women themselves need to change to be more successful. Her advice to "sit at the table,” take risks, face challenges, speak up, negotiate for salaries, etc. is as valuable for women in the hospitality industry as it is in any other field. The last time we looked, there was not exactly an equal number of women chefs or women managing top flight hotels. For a taste of what's in the book, listen in to Sandberg's TED talk that went viral. —Beverly Stephen, executive editor
