10 1/2 Things No Commencement Speaker Has Ever Said (Hardcover)
about this item
Modeled on Charles Wheelan’s 2011 Class Day Speech at Dartmouth College, this collection of refreshingly honest advice and observations is the antidote to those cotton-candy platitudes that are all too familiar to anyone who’s ever worn a mortarboard. Armed with a PhD in public policy, many years of experience in social science research, and—perhaps most important—good-natured humor, Wheelan offers up 10½ head-turning aphorisms on happiness and success that anyone staring down the barrel of graduation needs to hear but probably hasn’t heard yet. Celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Peter Steiner adds a touch of whimsy with his irreverent illustrations sprinkled throughout.
