Publisher's Summary

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.

New Material for the Graduate Edition:

  • "A Letter to Graduates" from Sheryl Sandberg
  • "Find Your First Job", by Mindy Levy (Levy has more than 20 years of experience in all phases of organizational management and holds degrees from Wharton and Penn)
  • "Negotiate Your Salary", by Kim Keating (Keating is the founder and managing director of Keating Advisors)
  • "Man Up: Millennial Men and Equality", by Kunal Modi (Modi is a consultant at McKinsey & Company and a recent graduate of Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School)
  • "Leaning In Together", by Rachel Thomas (Thomas is the president of Lean In)
  • "Own Who You Are", by Mellody Hobson (Hobson is the president of Ariel Investments)
  • "Listen to Your Inner Voice", by Rachel Simmons (Simmons is cofounder of the Girls Leadership Institute)
  • 12 Lean In stories (500-word essays), by people around the world who have been inspired by Sandberg

    "AMAZING!!"
    Any additional comments?

    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!!

    "Misleading"
    What did you like best about Lean In for Graduates? What did you like least?

    Lean In was awesome, Lean In for Graduates is basically the same, so if you read one, you really don't need to read the other

    Story
    "Incredible, inspiring, relevant"

    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.

    "Inspiring"

    I learned a lot about my own perceptions of gender and started paying attention to others actions. I plan on rereading and taking notes to share in my groups.

    Story
    "Inspiring must read for women"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the idea of women should start putting up our hands in meetings, should start asking for raises when they think they are underpaid, should work with their partner to share the houseworks and family duties, etc.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favourite scene would be the ending part of the story when women from different organisations sharing how they lean in after reading the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    We CAN empower our own selves.

    Story
    "Motivating book with terrible narration "

    Ms Sandberg's story and advice were encouraging and helpful, but the narrator had a condescending and offputting tone which was the opposite of the tone of the book. It helped to play the book at 2x the recorded speed to fade out the narrator's bad attitude.
