Audiobook Summary:

Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

Only once did David Foster Wallacegive a community talk on his perspectives on life, throughout a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. This is the audio-recording of David Foster Wallacedelivering that really address. How does one keep from heading through their secure, prosperous mature life involuntarily? How do we get ourselves from the foreground of our ideas and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in focus to others. After his departure, it became a treasured piece of authorship reprinted in The Wall Street Journal and the London Times , commented on endlessly in websites, and e-mailed from friend-to-friend.

Writing with his one-of-a kind mixture of causal comedy, exacting mind, and practical philosophy, David Foster Wallaceprobes the difficulties of day-to-day living and offers advice that revives us with every hear.
