Very Good Lives: J.K. Rowling Commencement

VGL_JKRThe creator of Harry Potter is back to create Very Good Lives. We noticed this book at our local Starbuck’s at the checkout counter and made an impulse buy. A very good impulse buy. This should be a must-read for graduates and everyone else as well. Simple, quick, easy to read, easy to understand, immediate action items – all of those keywords businesses and busy people look for. More than anything though, it is encouragement and a simple blueprint to live a very good life.

From Amazon:

J.K. Rowling, one of the world’s most inspiring writers, shares her wisdom and advice.

In 2008, J.K. Rowling delivered a deeply affecting commencement speech at Harvard University. Now published for the first time in book form, VERY GOOD LIVES presents J.K. Rowling’s words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life. How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others?

timthumb.phpDrawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world famous author addresses some of life’s most important questions with acuity and emotional force.

Sales of VERY GOOD LIVES will benefit both Lumos, a non-profit international organization founded by J.K. Rowling, which works to end the institutionalization of children around the world, and university-wide financial aid at Harvard University.
