Lessons. Longtime high school English teacher David McCullough, Jr. was surprised when his commencement address became a social media sensation. The theme of the address touched a popular nerve: You Are Not Special. The buzz led to a book deal, and while the commencement address itself appears at the end of the book, the bulk of the text does what McCullough does best: it teaches. The lessons McCullough presents, as we should expect, come from literature. I enjoyed reading the solid life lessons in this book, and recommend the book to any reader who likes to think for him or herself.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
