Expanded and updated exclusively for graduates just entering the workforce, this extraordinary edition of Lean In includes a letter to graduates from Sheryl Sandberg and six additional chapters from experts offering advice on finding and getting the most out of a first job; résumé writing; best interviewing practices; negotiating your salary; listening to your inner voice; owning who you are; and leaning in for millennial men.

In 2013, Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In became a massive cultural phenomenon and its title became an instant catchphrase for empowering women. The book soared to the top of best-seller lists both nationally and internationally, igniting global conversations about women and ambition. Sandberg packed theaters, dominated op-ed pages, appeared on every major television show and on the cover of Time magazine, and sparked ferocious debate about women and leadership. Now, this enhanced edition provides the entire text of the original book updated with more recent statistics and features a passionate letter from Sandberg encouraging graduates to find and commit to work they love. A combination of inspiration and practical advice, this new edition will speak directly to graduates and, like the original, will change lives.

Editorial Reviews

Prasie for Lean In: For Graduates “Nuanced . . . Whereas the original book was focused on articulating where we want to go with women in leadership, the additional parts of the new version provide day-to-day tactical advice on how to get there . . . Peppered with anecdotes from women of different ages, industries, backgrounds, ethnicities, income brackets, and skin color . . . The Lean In narrative is broadened greatly here to encompass a variety of experiences and goals . . . A clear message resonates throughout: Overcoming fear in any form means finding a voice. By opening the set of voices to be more inclusionary, therefore, the fundamental call of Lean In only rings clearer . . . Provides the opportunity to be re-inspired for those of us who have read it, and for those who haven’t, it introduces the wake-up call that has spurred the Lean In movement.”             — Forbes  “An ideal graduation gift that, although aimed at women, has plenty to offer young men as well . . . Sandberg recruits a considerable number of women, and a couple of men, to add their voices to hers . . . The shorter pieces generally fall into the category of inspirational . . . Longer chapters provide solid, practical advice that would benefit young people of either sex.”             — Kirkus  Praise for Lean In (#1 National Bestseller)
