Description

Advice for graduates and reflections on staying true to yourself from the beloved Gilmore Girls actress and New York Times best-selling author of the memoir Talking as Fast as I Can and the novel Someday, Someday, Maybe. 

"If you're not where you want to be on this day - don't worry about it. Because the spotlight aspect of life? That's not the satisfying part."  

In this expansion of her 2017 commencement speech at her hometown Langley High, Lauren Graham reflects in her hilarious, relatable voice on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now. "Whatever path you choose, whatever career you decide to go after, the important thing," she writes, "is that you keep finding joy in what you're doing, especially when the joy isn't finding you." 

She reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes you. "Whether you hope to be an actor or a politician or a mathematician, I've learned that empathy and kindness are your most valuable tools." Grounded and inspiring, this is Graham's road map to a happy life: "Be a fan, not a theater critic."

Too short

I absolutely love and adore Lauren graham. I preordered this thinking it was an ‘expanded’ version of the graduation speech. If I’d known it was only 28 minutes, I would not have purchased it for $7.85.

Not a Book

Would you try another book from Lauren Graham and/or Lauren Graham?

Of course. Lauren is an excellent writer.This however was an essay, not a book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Too Short!

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like that Lauren is amusing and amazing.

#ChooseJoy ❤️

No, she doesn't sing or dance or do a bit. Look to Will Farrell for such a performance.

Lauren delivers timeless advice, not only for graduates, but for everyone - especially when in need of a positive perspective.

Will definitely come back to this one over and over again.

Short, but good

I was looking forward to this book because anything by Lauren Graham is a must read for me! I have enjoyed her other two books, so even though this was only a short story based on a speech she gave, I knew I wanted to read it.

Spot on

Short, to the point, full of stellar advice. A great pick-me-up for anyone at any stage in their life (I'm just married, trying to purchase a house) but would OBVIOUSLY be an amazing graduation gift.

in conclusion, read this book!

I've been waiting for a new book from Lauren for a while. Great message for all ages in this book. I love her stories of life; the good and the bad. Living through it all is what makes us who we are. Laugh at yourself. Cry at yourself. If you can do it all as positive as possible, you'll make it through as the best version of yourself.

The style is fun and relatable. It has solid advice that I really feel like I can use every day! I also loved the anecdotes for their honesty. Lauren Graham is definitely a role model of mine!!
