Summary, etc.: David McCullough, Jr.'s high school commencement address of 2012, dubbed "You Are Not Special," was a tonic for children, parents, and educators alike. With wit and a perspective earned from raising four children and teaching high school students for nearly thirty years, McCullough expands on his speech-taking a hard look at hovering parents, questionable educational goals, professional college prep, electronic distractions, and club sports-and advocates for a life of passionate engagement.
