    Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. This is the audio recording of David Foster Wallace delivering that very address. 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? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others.

    John Nosal says: "The MVP of my book/audio library"
    "No wasted words."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I go what I came for: his carefully chosen words in his own voice. Very moving, inspiring, and down to earth.
