Celebrity commencement speeches have become de rigueur in recent years, as colleges and universities jockey for star power and positive media exposure. It would seem like a cheap ploy for publicity but for one fact: A lot of those speakers give really good advice! Fortunately, you don't have to be a recent graduate to appreciate the words of wisdom proffered by the fourteen speeches in this uplifting anthology, including Madeleine L'Engle's thoughts on courage, David Foster Wallace's emphasis on compassion, Nora Ephron's recommendations for rule-breaking, Ira Glass's advice for self-discovery, and Khaled Hosseini's admonition against apathy. How inspiring! (KG)
