As announced in yesterday’s list of new book releases to watch for this week, one of this week’s most interesting books is:
Congratulations, By the Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness.
Hardback: Random House, 2014.
Buy now: [ Amazon ] [ Kindle ]
You can actually read the full text of George Saunders’ 2013 Syracuse graduation speech here, but this is a lovely hardback edition that would make a wonderful gift for your family and friends who are graduating this spring. I can think of no better advice to graduates than what Saunders offers here: to prefer kindness to self-focused ambition.
