Reviews In Conclusion, Don't Worry About It

  • Lola
    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 comme...
  • Cyndi
    This is a very sweet inspirational work Lauren Graham wrote and delivered at her old high school. Its really good and has some wonderful advice.
  • Karina Read
    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...

    If you’re kicking yourself for not having accomplished all you should have by now, don’t worry about it. Even without any ‘big’ accomplishments yet to your name, you are enough. I have said this in the past and will now say it in this review i love Lauren Graham as someone who watched Gilmore girls growing up and also starting parenthood recently, i don't thinks it's possible for me to love everything she comes out with because its just ...

    I love Lauren Graham. I love her acting, I love her personality, I love her writing, I love her fiction, and I love her nonfiction. I loved this speech.But.....unless you are getting this as a gift, I can not reasonably recommend anyone to go out and buy this. Ask for it as a gift, read it from the library, or wait until it's discounted. $30 for a book that is less than a hundred pages just does not seem worth it to me. With that disclaimer aside...

    Before getting into my raving review for this short but powerful read, I’d like to just touch upon the beautiful presentation of the physical book. This hardback has such a beautiful array of colours that remind me of spring and flowers and Easter eggs (the chocolate kinds). This novel ALSO is the prettiest baby blue color when naked, and I want to carry it everywhere with me just to accessorize.Moving on.Lauren Graham is someone I loved in Gil...
  • Julie Ehlers
    Well, I mean, it's a tiny book with wide margins and large type. You shouldn't pay for it unless you're giving it as a gift to a new graduate (make sure you enclose a check too!). This is based on a commencement speech originally given at Lauren's former high school, so it's not as sophisticated as a speech that might be given at a college graduation, as in similar books by the likes of George Saunders and David Foster Wallace. But it has Lauren'...

    I knew it was a short read but I didn’t realize it was under 50 pages. I genuinely liked everything about it and I’m always fascinated by Lauren Graham & her life. I rated it a 3 because it was a little more superficial/didn’t have as much substance as I anticipated. I thought there would be a tad more “advice.” I tend to be a sucker for inspiring books so I usually feel more after reading these types of books. But I did enjoy everythin...
  • Laurence R.
    I just love Lauren Graham! I wish this book were longer though, because the audiobook was incredibly short.
  • Jess7
    4/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐. This is a slightly extended version of a graduation speech #LaurenGraham gave to her alma mater. I enjoyed her thoughts on success and happiness. I’ve read her other books and this one didn’t disappoint. The only reason it didn’t get 5/5 is because it didn’t feel long enough. I wish she would have made this book into a memoir, using her speech as a theme. Nevertheless, I liked this book in spite of its brevity. #jp...
  • Amelia
    I love Lauren Graham and this advice spoke to me cause I'm feeling about like I'm just waiting to succeed, instead of looking for happiness and wholeness in the little things. I just wish it had been longer!
  • Caitlin Allen
    This is a cute, short book reminding those in a place of change to not worry about what’s to come.
  • Hope (HopelessBookAddict)
    OMG why do all her books make me cry! She said all the things I needed to hear right now! Thanks Lauren!
  • Jamie Rosenblit
    Cute little motivational short from Queen Lorelei Gilmore - this is a commencement speech she gave at her HS alma mater in 2017 and I enjoyed listening to her advice.
  • Cailin (Rose Petal Pages)
    *3.5 This was quick, enjoyable, inspirational and made me feel nice inside :)
  • Brandon Buechley
    This book seems to define my 2017. I'm sure a lot of people can relate and enjoy the message.
  • Emily
    I’m a big fan of Gilmore Girls, so I thought a book by one of the actresses would probably be fun. This book is based on a graduation speech Graham gave at her old high school. It’s nice, fluffy advice, suitable for a graduation speech. It’s not especially deep, but it’s her experience, and something many will be able to relate to.
  • Mary Sisney
    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...

    I've been really struggling with finding joy in my first job after grad school, so this book is exactly what I needed at this point in my life. It's a great reminder that it's okay to make mistakes and that while your first job might not be your dream job, you'll get there.
  • Christy
    So, I'll be graduating with my Master's in a little over a month. I no longer have a permanent job, I completely disliked the field I thought I would enter (on top of not being certified), have zero clue what to do next, and generally feel "behind" in every single point in my life.This hit home because I'm feeling that "senior slump." In the past I've pretty much always been on top: Good grades, involved in a bunch of activities, snagging jobs wi...

    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 ...
  • Lyndsay
    I definitely don't think I am the target audience for something like this. It was originally written for a high school graduation commencement speech and then expanded for a university graduation commencement speech. But I feel like everyone could get something out of this. It's inspirational and funny and just nice to listen to. I can see how graduating seniors could value the information she shared. But even someone like me, who maybe doesn't h...
  • Rosa
    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 ...
  • Jules.Bookverse
    This book was such a lovely, sweet and funny read!It was definitely a nice graduation speech that inspired young and old to seek joy in life and see themselves as the amazing people they already are. You shouldn't need anybody to tell you that the way you are is totally enough. Don't worry about life too much and do what makes you happy! A quick read that everyone can squeeze into their busy day. ;)
  • Author Annabelle Leigha
    Very eloquent! And just what I needed to hear right now!
  • Emily Benoit
    Such a sweet and inspiring little book.
  • Caitlin
    Sometimes we all just need a short, sweet, and simple pep talk to help us realign ourselves.
  • Sarah
    This was cute and happy and inspiring. I’ve always loved reading commencement speeches so it was a fun read for me. Plus I do love Lauren Graham.
  • Sandra
    It’s a relaxing and nice motivational 30 min read, but although in a book format would see it more as a blog post.
