This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

David Foster Wallace

What is the actual, real-life value of education? In this pointedly observant examination of daily life, David Foster Wallace seeks an answer to this deceptively simple question. In doing so, he notes that, ‘the most obvious, ubiquitous, important realities are often the ones that are the hardest to see and talk about.’ In other words, to really understand the world, we have to get out of our own thoughts and learn to see what’s right in front of us. With this, he touches on the most basic, most important decision we all make every day - how to think about our world. Writing with his one-of-a-kind blend of casual humor, exacting intellect, and practical philosophy, David Wallace probes the challenges of daily living and offers advice that renews us with every reading.
