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 bestseller 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Donovan does a fine job of narrating Sandberg’s manifesto for women at work, here adapted for young graduates. Her voice is enthusiastic and fast-paced, brimming with savvy encouragement. Donovan also rolls wonderfully with Sandberg’s many self-deprecating moments, which pepper the book’s expert how-to advice with approachable, and sometimes funny, examples of her shortcomings.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Honest and brave…The new manifesto for women in the workplace.”

    Oprah Winfrey on Lean In

  • Lean In poses a set of ambitious challenges to women: to create the lives we want, to be leaders in our work, to be partners in our homes, and to be champions of other women. Sheryl provides pragmatic advice on how women in the twenty-first century can meet these challenges. I hope women—and men—of my generation will read this book to help us build the lives we want to lead and the world we want to live in.”

    Chelsea Clinton

  • Lean In is an inauguration more than a last word, and an occasion for celebration…Many, many women, young and old, elite and otherwise, will find it prescriptive, refreshing, and perhaps even revolutionary.”

    New Yorker

  • “I approached it wearing two hats—one as CEO [and] the other as the parent of a nine-year-old daughter. In both capacities, I feel that Lean In is a must read.”

    Mohamed El-Erian, CEO of PIMCO, in Fortune
