As a psychology instructor in a two-year college, I'm always on the lookout for class material, and this book is a virtual treasure trove. Yesterday I shared some of Jay Leno's advice on marriage as we discussed transitions in young adulthood, and today I'm going to mention Steve Martin's quote about security from E.E Cummings' "Unstructured Lectures." From saying yes to being bold, it's all in there. Working hard is there too. So is handling rejection, something that Katie Couric encountered from many times.
Bill Clinton, Maya Angelou, Matt Lauer, Tyra Banks, and dozens of other successful people are included. Though some people have actually complained that Couric included only the best and the brightest, I'm wondering why anyone would want to read a collection of essays from dozens of losers.
Two years later, I still haven't read all of the passages, and I like it that way. I keep it on my shelf, and every once in a while I pick it up, find the category that I need encouragement in, and read.
This would also be a wonderful gift for a graduation of any kind.
