In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It by Lauren Graham

 

2 out of 5

official blurb
In this expansion of the 2017 commencement speech she gave at her hometown Langley High, Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, reflects on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now. “Whatever path you choose, whatever career you decide to go after, the important thing is that you keep finding joy in what you’re doing, especially when the joy isn’t finding you.” In her hilarious, relatable voice, Graham reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes us or what we’ve yet to achieve. Grounded and inspiring—and illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herself—here is a comforting road map to a happy life.

my blurb!
A quick and random read that encourages you to not take things too seriously.
I should clearly state my bias here- I love Lauren Graham.  I am a Gilmore Girls junkie, have read her fiction and non fiction works, and would gladly stalk her if she were to ever come to Kansas City on a book tour.

what i liked
The book is 45 pages long and can be read quickly one evening.

what i didn't like
That being said- this book was a miss for me.  Her voice was there, but it was… well it was a pointless book.  I found myself  wondering if she had a book contract that demanded a publication.  Really, why does this book exist?

I have an inkling that the audiobook would be better because who doesn’t love to listen to Lauren Graham?  But I also have a strong hunch that you may listen and say to yourself… wow that was the book, huh?

when to read
Before or right after attending a graduation

while reading you should
