Review: Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling

23731881Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination by J.K . Rowling

Published April 14th 2015

“In 2008, J.K. Rowling delivered a deeply affecting commencement speech at Harvard University. Now published for the first time in book form, Very Good Lives offers J.K. Rowling’s words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life, asking the profound and provocative questions: How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others?

Drawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world-famous author addresses some of life’s most important issues with acuity and emotional force.”

Everything about this book is beautiful. Jo has a such a way with words.
Not only is this book inspirational but it’s also really funny.
I loved the way the book was put together. The little doodles and art was really cool.
And even though this book is short (80 pages but it’s a speech) and maybe a little expensive for only 80 pages, it’s totally worth it. Plus, the proceeds of its sales go to Jo’s Lumos charity.
