I thoroughly enjoyed this book it was well written and wonderfully read. It really makes you stop and think about what's important in life.
You have to take this book for what it is; one mans last words to his children, in the guise of a book for the masses. At points, however emotionally draining, this is a journey through the last thoughts of a man at the sunset of his life. This book has value if only for the sociological study of a man in the position of preparing his family for his death. The lessons in this book, however youthful, are profoundly heartfelt, genuine, and priceless. A fantastic read.
This is a well written, colage of a man's life...last thoughts as it were. The author reads and in that way twells his own story and takes you one bit at a time through some very delightful and thought provoking territory.
I listened to this book and I found it to be very inspiring. It made me want to do better. This author is amazing. I enjoyed this so much I watched the actual lecture online.
I know that he wrote this for his children, and for his students. But Randy Pauch has give me set guide line for the way to live, life. And for that I say Thanks.
I really enjoyed "The Last Lecture". It was hard to remember that Randy Pausch was living with a terminal disease, such an upbeat and positive person. How lucky are we to share parts of his life through his book.
This book is beautifully written and narrated.
The author shows great dignity and spirit, as he accepts his future, and sets out to leave his young family a legacy, far more important than money. You can't help but wonder how you would handle the same circumstances.
Should be required reading for all leadership classes, Powerful speaker, a pioneering, professor who is dying of cancer, leaves a legacy that is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Narrated by the author, it is a quick listen that will bring you back for more. One of the best listens I have ever enjoyed
