The Last Lecture



"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch is a remarkable book. It's remarkable in that it's all about this guy, Randy, who is dying and yet he has such optimism and hope, it makes you smile and hope yourself. The book isn't long and most of the chapters are pretty short but they are sweet. Randy talks about his childhood, his school years & his adult life as a professor and a husband/father. I have to say, I definitely laughed in this book and I cried. Sometimes I didn't even realize I was crying until I noticed moisture which is different for me (I usually end up sobbing up a storm) but this was more of a sad cry ... does that make sense? Anyway, if you want to read an uplifting book by a dying man, this is the book for you. If you want to read a book about hopes & dreams, this is also that book.
