Lean In

A self-indulgent privileged white woman'a account of her business success. She blames women's lack of leadership on timidity and tendency to fulfill
stereotypes and bases her conclusions on assumptions. Some good advice but provides little insight into the real challenges of attaining leadership as a woman.

Girl on the Train

Implausible plot with unlikeable one-dimensional characters. Rachel's narration was inconsistent for a recovering alcoholic prone to blackouts. Great idea gone awry.

 
Boring, Informative, Slow
The Story of a Happy Marriage

We felt the title was very misleading as only one of the essays/articles dealt with marriage. It was merely a compilation of formerly published writings and speeches featured in magazines, graduations, etc. Writers may find this book helpful, but our group had difficulty relating to the writer and the topics. She came across as self-important and defensive, which the group found annoying and pretentious.
