About Congratulations, By The Way:
Three months after George Saunders gave a convocation address at Syracuse University last May, a transcript of that speech was posted on the web site of the New York Times, where its simple, uplifting message struck a deep chord. Within days, it had been shared more than one million times. CONGRATULATIONS, BY THE WAY features that speech along with illustrations.
Saunders’s words provoke all of us to examine our behavior and to lead kinder, more fulfilling lives. Powerful, funny, honest, this book delivers an inspiring message from one of today’s most influential and original writers.
