    I have not yet read Sandberg's popular book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, even though I have a copy on my book shelf. For some reason I previusly thought of Sandberg as one of those privileged women, one of the unique, and maybe not the voice to speak to me. Option B thou...

    I?m honored to be a small part of Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant?s new book Option B. (See page 164.) The message of the book is one that everyone can benefit and learn from: We are stronger and more resilient than we think. We not only have the ability to cope with devastating lif...

    I?ve read some of the negative reviews of Sandberg?s books and I agree with them to a point. Sandberg does discuss how she personally handled the grief of losing a spouse, and she generalized her efforts to deal with the grief and moving on while remembering into advice for all. It...

    The book narrates how Sheryl Sandberg, CEO of Facebook, has been able to cope with the sudden death of her beloved husband who passed away at a relatively young age leaving two young children behind. The book not only explores her experience but also includes the advice she has rece...

    This is a short book on handling grief, or as the author calls it "Option B". That's the plan you have to go with when life takes you off course and on a new path. Sheryl Sandberg is an executive at Facebook and was on a vacation in Mexico with her husband Dave, and their friends. Dave...

    Not all of the author's friends, coworkers, and acquaintances said the perfect things to her after her husband died. She remembered every transgression, and then wrote a book detailing them. I was hoping that I would learn something about resilience from this book. Instead, after r...

    Facebook propoganda meets white billionaire privilege. Gross. I feel sad for Sheryl Sandberg and her loss, but this book is TERRIBLE. Positioned as a self-help book, it's anything but helpful. I agree with the negative reviews that this doesn't provide practical advice for ANYON...

    It's #Booksgiving! Start getting your bookish friends their read on...especially valuable for your friend whose grief is still raw. Sheryl Sandberg lost her husband before he was fifty. I lost mine when he was not quite 34. I connect with her pain on every imaginable level. I als...

    I walked into this book knowing who Sheryl Sandberg was, but without honestly knowing the tragic events that led up to her writing this book. So for me, it was a huge surprise. As some of the other reviewers have noted, many of the concepts she touches on learning and adapting are seem...

    I read the first three chapters and skimmed the rest. I remember hearing of Sandberg?s husband?s sudden death of cardiac arrhythmia while on an exercise machine in a Mexico hotel. (Elizabeth Alexander?s husband died in similar circumstances; she wrote about it in The Light of the...

    Sheryl Sandberg, one of my idols, and Adam Grant, one of the best professors I had at Wharton, band together to write a book exploring how we can move forward and become resilient towards trauma in our lives. The balance of anecdotes, research, and even humor was perfect, as well as Sh...

    Sheryl Sandberg, you simply understand. Thank you. As a female who has worked in tech, specifically in social media, I must say, I lack investment in corporate life. I'm the one who wants to be the full-time wife... And it is with that in mind that I must tell you, Sheryl Sandber...

    4.0 Stars - Resilience has become my new word! I'm normally not a self-help reader, but the message in this story really hit home for me. I highly recommend this one to anyone looking for the strength to persevere through the challenges parts of life. ...

    Sheryl Sandberg suffered a tragic and unthinkable loss when her husband died on vacation, and just like anyone else, she had to develop coping strategies and solutions to problems in order to work through her grief, comfort her children and get back to living. Her personal story is h...

    Ok I didn't quite get through this one before it disappeared from my IPad but I did get through most of it. I found the book to be helpful with good insight not only for someone grieving a loss but also for anyone who is suffering from or have a loved one suffering from a serious i...

    I figured this would be a half parts Sheryl Sandberg's memoir and half parts Adam Grant's research on the topic of resilience. The actual outcome was a little more off balance. It is mostly a memoir and as one, it is a very powerful one. Several times, I found myself choking up as I re...

    This was interesting to read after 'Lean In.' In some ways, Sheryl is absolutely humbled by the tragedy that hit her family. She openly talks through the vulnerability and admits to a lot of the assumptions she made with 'Lean In' coming from a place of stability and privilege. I enjoy...

    Sheryl Sandberg lost her husband, and that is very sad, and is a tragedy that no one deserves. Also, SS learned how to gain resilience and re-find joy, which is fantastic, and I know we all wish for her. That said, the advice she offers in this book does not seem relevant or helpful to...

    3.0 Stars I have such mixed feelings about this book. I?m glad I read it and encourage folks to give it a whirl if you can pick up a copy at your local library but from the very beginning, something felt off, not quite right. But first let me express my sincere condolences to ...

    This one is a tear jerker - ugly criers be warned. Beyond the Instagram selfies and humble brag Facebook posts is a ton of grief in all of our lives that we do our best to hide from others. Option B uses Sheryl's tragedy to openly discuss trauma, it's impact, recovery, and post trauma ...

    WOW. Reading "Option B" was such a gift. This book is going next to "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" on the shelf* for rough times in my own life and in the lives of those I love. I highly recommend this for those who are navigating a tough time--whether recent tragedy, or an on...

    It may not be fair but I couldn't help but compare to the unforgettably raw and moving memoirs on loss by Joyce Carol Oates, Joan Didion and Sonali Deraniyagala (Wave). It has some useful advice on ways to deal with grief but I worry that it may set unrealistic expectations for many wh...

    3.5 Stars rounded up to 4, because it has a solid message and is widely applicable. Resilience is the strength and speed of our response to adversity, and we can build it. It isn?t about having a backbone. It?s about strengthening the muscles around our backbone. ? Sheryl Sa...

    I have to give Sheryl Sandberg credit. The topic of this book is not an easy one to cover and let's be honest, the majority of authors that do pen such books related to rebounding from grief have some kind of educational background or job experience that gives them the authority to adv...

    It?s rude to criticize grieving widows. Maybe it?s even mean or cruel, and a boiling cauldron awaits me in Hell. But Sheryl Sandberg?s new book, Option B, is hard to take seriously, especially for those of us who are not multi-millionaires and have lost a spouse and been left alo...
