Reviews

"David Foster Wallace's unbelievable graduation speech...will inspire you."--Daily Candy
"None of the cloudlessly sane and true things he had to say about life in 2005 are any less sane or true today...[This is Water] reminds us of [Wallace's] strength and goodness and decency--the parts of him the terrible master [the mind] could never defeat, and never will."--Tom Bissel, New York Times Book Review
"Striking...is [Wallace's] evocative insight and humor."--Mark Follman, Mother Jones
"Think of it as The Last Lecture for intellectuals."--Time
"We read Wallace because he forces us to think. He makes us consider what's beneath us and around us--like water."--Alicia J. Rouverol, The Christian Science Monitor
