PositiveFinancial TimesWhile some of these \'gender data gaps\' are well-known, others are strikingly unexpected ... The book covers a huge range of examples of how data are biased against women — from industrial design to healthcare systems to disaster responses ... Many [examples] resonated with me personally ... Data determine how resources are allocated. Bad data lead to bad resource allocation. Criado Perez hammers home this message with example after example, and a lack of evidence is certainly not a criticism that could be levelled at the book ... one worry is whether the author can have done adequate due diligence on the quality of all the research she cites ... Criado Perez comprehensively makes the case that seemingly objective data can actually be highly male-biased ... Policymakers everywhere should take heed.
Sheryl Sandberg and Adam M. Grant
PositiveThe Financial Times...the candour of the book is at times uncomfortable. How Sandberg’s two children will feel in years to come about their mother’s willingness to publicly detail significant moments of their grieving for their father is moot. But, occasional winces aside, the book contains important messages both for individuals and for employers ... The call for a more compassionate workplace is an admirable one and, indeed, Option B is an admirable book. Not just because it is a testament to Sandberg’s courage in dealing with her husband’s death (as she points out, she had no choice), but because of her willingness to put herself out there again — despite the sometimes rancorous reactions to her first book — to draw lessons for others from her personal tragedy.
