I realize that not everyone is turned on by the word, "lecture" (parents giving talks about making good choices and college entry courses come to mind). But this series takes universal topics - happiness, money, et al - and finds everyday people doing extraordinary things to talk about them. Think of it as the coffeehouse version of TED talks. The org is popping up in cities around the world, so when you greet the day at an absurdly early hour to go (worth it!), you can know you're not alone.
