An Astounding Gift - Past, Present and Future

Drew McLellan blows my mind with his example of genuine love for college grads. And to get it all together in less than 2 months! If you're not hip to his just posted e-book - check it out here. The version with pictures is best :) A surprise with every contributor. Amazing in it's diversity of thought and ideas, this is a stroke of brilliance, folks. Unfolding as clouds move across a clear blue sky. Flowing as the river during the Spring thaw. This is gift to grads and beyond. Heck, lets call it what it is - a gift to everyone associated with a conversation community.

Check the contributors - WOW - and then check their blogs.

Thanks, Bob! It's just an amazing project.

Drew McLellan said...

Heck Bob,

You guys did most of the work. Like I said in my post -- if we had counted on just my pearls of wisdom it would be a very thin e-book!

Thanks for contributing and for helping to spread the word!

It is c.b. - it is indeed. Modesty is a valued trait, Drew, but you pulled this together! When all is said and done 2 things was genuinely impressed me. First, the graphic aspect is to be commended. I'm one who notices gender and race and you placed some thought into the faces you showed. Second, the range of ideas shared is incredible.

Bob (and CB),

Thanks for your generous words. I agree with you -- the content is incredible. Big range, completely different perspectives and lots of very tangible advice.

As for the photos, I was mindful that it will spread the globe (hopefully)and I wanted to make sure no one felt left out. Glad that came through.

Again, thanks for helping spread the word about the ebook.

too few are mindful of that Drew - I am glad that you are -

Delaney Kirk said...

Thanks Bob for getting the info on Drew's project out to more grads!

Hi Bob

Thank you so much for the link to this. I have been in touch with Drew and hope that my readers here in the UK - spreading the globe indeed - will find it just as encouraging!

Delaney and Jackie - This really is a wonderful gift from so many. Drew's vision of having it spread the globe really impresses me. Thanks for commenting on One Reader :)
