Stanford Grads Get "New Awakening"
Oprah Winfrey spoke to Stanford's 2008 graduating class last weekend, and she bestowed one of her famous giveaways on the grads.

The generous gabber brought copies of Daniel Pink's A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future and Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose for every graduate. For some reason, we think they were just a wee bit less enthusiastic than her usual audience?
