Book Review: The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch

The last lecture

Hi all…

It’s not often that I read non-fiction books. This one was sent to me to read by my mother-in-law (thanks Sue!) and had been recommended online by a number of folks. I just hadn’t had a chance to watch the lecture online (you can see it here).

What a motivating read. Randy Pausch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which is pretty much a death sentence. He did what he could to treat it, but it wasn’t enough and he was given a timeline with which to live the rest of his life. He did the Last Lecture as a monument to his family and friends, so that they could see not only that he had lived his life – but that they should also strive to live theirs.

This is a very inspiring story that anybody should be able to take something away from. Definitely take a look.
