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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved this! this book is a must for everyone! Really helps graduates get on the right track when building their careers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to give this to every graduate I know! This is definitely one of my top recommendations for anyone shopping for graduation gifts. I wish I had read this before I graduated! This book pushed me to reevaluate how I have been approaching my career and my everyday interactions. In particular, the chapters on 'The Leadership Ambition Gap' and 'It's a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder' really got me thinking. I appreciated how Sheryl Sandberg's personal anecdotes were thoughtfully linked to current research and to the stories of people living in different circumstances. And the added stories/chapters (I'm assuming these weren't in the original Lean In) written by other leaders provided a fascinating range of perspectives on what "leaning in" can mean for different people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE book to read if you are a young women starting your career! Looking for a good non-fiction read that is thought provoking and helps put your career in focus at the same time? This is the book to read. Sandberg's writing is clear and evidenced-based; showing that women need to not only take control as they navigate their careers but also be cognoscente of the barriers that they face based solely on gender. I've been reading this book on the subway to and from work every day and it has definitely changed the way I start my day at the office.
