You Are Not Special: and other encouragements by David McCullough, Jr.
An inspirational reflection on the way we bring up children that will resonate with all parents. David McCullough, Jr's high-school graduation address, dubbed You Are Not Special when it went viral on YouTube, was a tonic for parents, students, and educators alike. Now he expands on that speech with wit and a perspective earned from raising four children and teaching high-school students for nearly 30 years. In this humorous and insightful book, McCullough takes a hard look at helicopter parents, questionable educational goals, professional university coaching, electronic distractions, and more - and advocates for a life of passionate engagement.
