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.

I'm a clinical psychology doctorate student. I love to read a good romance or ya novel to escape from the everyday stresses of life.
Her warm voice, personal stories, and painting the picture really pulled me into the narrative. This book was definitely a pick-me-up during my commute to a less than stellar internship. One particular morning when I was listening to this book during my commute, I was thinking about how I was gonna appropriately handle the privileged white male at work who was always stealing my chair, trashing my desk, and just not offering me the same respect he would likely give to a male colleague. The book really helped me revisit my aspirations that were so easy to fall away from at a soul-crushing job. I'm at another place now, but my professional development is still a work in progress. I think this book is a good one to read more than once at different points in the career, because some of the chapter topics that don't apply today could easily apply a few months or years from now.
This book was very well written and narrated and provided lots of good insights. I have recommended it to all of my female friends in business. I didn't love the chapters at the end with the stories but the salary negotiation section will be helpful when I start looking for my next job. Definitely a great choice!!
Sheryl Sandburg sharing her experiences, including the challenges and failures. Also, she brought in several high profile women to state how they developed, leaned in, and achieved impressive success.
The moment it was explained that men are hired for their potential, and women are hired for having done the job already. The other was when the woman who was head of IBM told her story and then revealed her very impressive position.
I am afraid not. She was clear and had a modulated voice, however, sometimes I really thought she was a computer. I am afraid I have not investigated to find out if she was chosen since her voice is similar to Sheryl Sanberg's - if it is, it would make more sense.
It was the kind of book where I really had to stop along the way to absorb it and think how it applied to my life and to other's lives.
It gave me tremendous inspiration and to craft a way to a better career path. And, to see this applies not only to women, but to the men in our professional and personal lives.
learn to negotiate Learn To Love Yourself and using others to motivate and improve your own self esteem through lean in circles. definitely crazy how distinct other cultures are when it comes to gender equality issues this book shares a lot of light on that subject. if I had a daughter I would have her read this book
This is a must-read for women AND men who care about creating a more equal world for everyone. Sheryl's words of wisdom are powerful, insightful, and backed by a huge amount of research and firsthand experience. I read Lean In a couple years ago and listening to it now, at a different point in my professional and personal development as I plan to graduate college, gave me new perspective and reaffirmed my confidence in my path and my ability to succeed. Elisa's narration (which sounds remarkably like Sheryl's voice) is easy to listen to and allowed me to become entirely engrossed in the content.
