It’s hard to find a person in the West who doesn’t know about J.K. Rowling. Millions of read her Harry Porter books. So many that she is the first person every to become a billionaire from writing fiction books. Millions have also been inspired by her story of rising from abject poverty to become one of the richest people on the planet.
I’ve not really been a fan and have not read any of her books. However, I enjoyed listening to her Harvard commencement so much. She talks to the graduating students about the benefits of failure and the crucial importance of imagination.
