Publisher's Summary

Continuing our look at notable commencement addresses, Bob talks with best-selling writer George Saunders about his new book, Congratulations, By the Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness. It’s an expanded version of Saunders’ 2013 Syracuse University speech that went viral.

Then, writer David Foster Wallace’s 2005 speech at Kenyon College has been called the best commencement address ever. It might have been all but forgotten, but after he took his own life in 2008, the text surfaced on the internet. It was later published as a book, called This is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life. [Broadcast Date: May 14, 2014]
