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.

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!!
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
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.
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.
We CAN empower our own selves.
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.
Sheryl Sandberg tells her story and offers her opinions and advice in a way that makes you want to say "thank you" after every chapter. She uses simple language, clear examples to illustrate her point, and her message is dead on: we need more women in power. I didn't agree with everything that she said, but it would be creepy if I did. Great book, fantastic food for thought and conversation. I only wish it had been Ms. Sandberg who read the book.
