    A lot of professors give talks titled The Last Lecture. Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy? When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didnt have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave, Really ... Show more

HMMM...

by WILMOM on Sep 20, 2012

This is a book for a limited readership, I'm thinking. Had difficulty getting into it, but that is a subjective viewpoint. It is well written, and I would recommend it to a few of my friends who, like me, enjoy this genre of literature. More

Interesting Book

by Longdrycreek on May 27, 2010

This is a good but sad read of a man, a father, a husband and his death in the near future. I compared this book with John Gunther's "Death Be Not Proud." Gunther's account is watching and reacting to his teenage son's slow death over 60 years ago. The boy died as a result of a brain tumor. I ... More

Positive Life

by SLTodd on Jan 1, 2010

Randy Pausch set his goals high and communicated that goal setting to his children and the world. Great man, great book! More

Wonderful

by lbuch717 on Nov 12, 2009

This is an extremely positive 'lecture' on living life to it's fullest. Very inspiring. I think everyone from 18-100 should read/listen to this story. How much better our lives would be if we took Randy's attitude and applied it to our own lives. More
