The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch


Another quick read here.  I’m sure many of you have heard of this book based on an actual lecture given by Randy Pausch a couple years back.  He was then suffering from pancreatic cancer (unfortunately, he has since passed) but he is sharing literally his last lecture.

He was a professor at Carnegie Mellon who taught about virtual reality.  He starts with realizing your childhood dreams and goes through his list and how he accomplished almost all of them, even the kind of out there ones.  He then talks about helping others realize their dreams, whether they are his students or his kids.  He also talks about values from his own childhood and just general inspiring things.

A great book for any dreamer, or someone who wants to be a better one!  And it did read pretty quick.  Or you could watch the actual lecture on youtube.  I think there might be just a little more in the book but they are pretty similar.
