In Conclusion, Don't Worry About It Reviews
Everything Lauren Graham says in this short book is worth pondering.
Dear reader, you have no idea how much your opinion affects me. If I don’t get a positive enough response on a review, I’m going to immediately assume that I said something weird that people can’t understand or connect with.
Lauren Graham says not to worry too much, and that’s easier said than done, but it’s also very true. The moment I stop caring about likes and comments, I’m going to be twice the reviewer that I am today. At ...more
It’s the way time moves differently when you’re caught up in the simple joy of being yourself. It’s what can happen when you make the decision to let go of criticism and worry and fear.
And that’s where The Best really lives.
This had good intentions, but it just felt a little bit repetitive, and I feel like, since I was reading this, the words didn't have as much impact. Hearing someone tell you, "Don't worry so much. You have so much ahead of you." is so much better than reading those words, bec ...more
I didn't realize this was a convocation speech that Lauren Graham delivered. I really had thought that it was another full book, so I was surprised when I ended up checking a very cute-sized book out of the library.
I thought Lauren had some great thoughts in it, eloquently written and delivered with her usual wit and humour. This book came at a really good time, I think I needed to hear a lot of what I read.
One of my favourite quotes "Starring has nothing to do with how big your part it—it's a ...more
Much too short, but I really loved this book anyway! Thanks, Lauren, for reminding readers to stop thinking that having "the best picturesque life" is actually the goal in this human experience. It truly is those small moments that make life enjoyable, not the huge accomplishments.
This book also provides a wonderful reminder to continue to work hard toward dreams, but all the while don't remain entirely focused on the end goal that you miss the present.
Such a sweet and inspiring little book.
I love Lauren Graham, just thought i’d preface with that. I enjoyed this and it has inspired me a little, but I think it perhaps focussed too much on acting rather than being whatever you want to be. I’d have liked to have her insights on battling the lows to get to the highs etc...
I just love Lauren Graham! I wish this book were longer though, because the audiobook was incredibly short.
I was looking for a short, breezy book to read after plowing through another depressing "Trump is ruining the world" narrative. I liked Graham in "Gilmore Girls" and enjoyed one of her earlier books. This one was certainly breezy, but it was too short for the price. I'm not cheap, so I usually don't even notice how much a book costs, but when I opened this one and saw that it included some not very impressive drawings and realized that there were probably not many more words in it than in two of ...more
