Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An inspiring meditation on kindness from the bestselling author of Tenth of December, 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.

Praise for Congratulations, by the way

“As slender as a psalm, and as heavy.”The New York Times

“The graduating college senior in your life probably just wants money. But if you want to impart some heartfelt, plainspoken wisdom in addition to a check, you can't do much better than [Congratulations, by the way].”Entertainment Weekly

“The loving selflessness that [George Saunders] advises and the interconnectedness that he recognizes couldn’t be purer or simpler—or more challenging.”Kirkus Reviews

“Warm and tender.”Publishers Weekly

From the Hardcover edition.

Customer Reviews

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.

Congratulations by the way

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.

Great, by the way

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.

Congratulations, by the way
