Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In,” which was first released this past March and which advises women on how to succeed in the workplace, quickly became a bestseller and sparked a nationwide conversation.

Now Sandberg is planning to release a new edition of the book this April which will be aimed at college graduates and will include six new chapters as well as a letter from the author. Subjects will include how to succeed in a job interview, advice on a first salary, and “how millennial men can lean in,” according to USA Today. The new edition will be titled “Lean In For Graduates.”

Sandberg told USA Today she didn't expect the book would have such an effect on people.

“I never imagined in a billion years [it] would spark this amount of conversation," she said. "This is changing people's lives.”

“Lean” ranked at number 11 on the New York Times combined print and e-book nonfiction list for the week of Jan. 19.
