Today I have a lovely book to review! The book is called Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination and it’s written by our beloved J. K. Rowling.
This is a must-read book for all of those who have been a bit down lately or that simply want an energy kick. It’s a very short book that you can read in half an hour approximately. If you want to know what is it about and how I feel about it, read this review and you’ll understand why I say that this is a must-read!
In this book she gives us the exact words she used for the speech she gave to post-graduate students of Harvard University in 2008. She basically talks about the importance of the imagination and the benefits of failure. With this, she encourages to all their readers (and obviously the students that were there the day of the speech) to live being able to follow their dreams. To make them come true through imagination and motivation, forgetting what it is expected of you and doing what one wants. Because, in the end, each of us are captains of our own ships.
This book is pure inspiration for anyone who reads it and reveals little moments of vital importance in Rowling’s life.
I’d love to know what you guys think either if you’ve read it or if you are thinking of reading it!
