Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This inspiring meditation on kindness from the author of Lincoln in the Bardo is based on his popular commencement address.

Three months after George Saunders gave a graduation address at Syracuse University, a transcript of that speech was posted on the website of The New York Times, where its simple, uplifting message struck a deep chord. Within days, it had been shared more than one million times. Why? Because Saunders’s words tap into a desire in all of us to lead kinder, more fulfilling lives. Powerful, funny, and wise, Congratulations, by the way is an inspiring message from one of today’s most influential and original writers.

    Inspirational! However it seems a bit overpriced for about 15 pages when you take out all the spaces et cetera. Took me about 10 min to read.

    As I read this, I thought of sending this book to my nieces and nephews who are graduating and beginning college and those finishing college. As I progressed through it I nodded “yes”. Then before I knew it, I came to the end of the book. I was disappointed.. I wanted more. Whether that’s a positive comment on the book or not so positive, I leave to you.
  • This price is ridiculous

    I like Saunders' work and am sure this is worth reading, but you have to be kidding me--nearly ten bucks for a 64-page feel good expanded speech? No thanks, iBooks.
