Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion?

This audiobook version of a David Foster Wallace commencement speech, read by his sister, Amy Wallace-Havens, captures his electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others. After his death, it became a treasured piece of writing reprinted in The Wall Street Journal and the London Times, commented on endlessly in blogs, and emailed from friend to friend. Writing with his one-of-a-kind blend of causal humor, exacting intellect, and practical philosophy, David Foster Wallace probes the challenges of daily living and offers advice that renews us with every reading.

    " A wonderful, thoughtful, classic DFW speech, but absolutely not worth buying as a seperate book for $16.99. My 1-star rating pertains to the value of the book itself; not the speech, which I love. "
