The perfect graduation gift: the iconic #1 best seller, expanded and updated exclusively for graduates entering the workforce.

This extraordinary edition of Lean In , by Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook and coauthor of Option B, with Adam Grant, includes a letter to graduates from Sandberg and six additional chapters from experts offering advice on finding and getting the most out of a first job; r sum 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. 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, change lives.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "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. For example, she was one of only a handful of business school graduates to receive a monetary award for excellence after her first year, but she was the only winner-and, not coincidentally, the only woman-to keep quiet about that achievement. Donovan's audio performance suffers in the expanded material near the end of the book. She reads all of it, including six new chapters by various experts (on finding your first job, negotiating for a salary, etc.) and a dozen short personal essays by those who have "leaned in." Given the diversity of this cast of characters-and the book's insistence that owning one's story is vital to the ability to lead-it's disappointing that other actors or even the contributors themselves don't narrate those portions.
