Very good lives : the fringe benefits of failure and the importance of imaginati

This book is the commencement address J. K. Rowling gave at Harvard University. In it she tells the graduates she would like them to remember two things. The first is the benefits of failure, when she failed it made her stop pretending and become what she really is. The second is the importance of imagination. She implores the graduates to imagine themselves in others shoes and then imagine better and set out to fulfill that dream. All in all an inspiring book. One we can all learn something from.
