Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture

on Fri, 01/09/2009 - 13:19

This lecture is worth watching to the very last minute. Really - if you're into emotional inspiring life changing moments, don't turn it off before then. I'll be ordering the book. (reposted from CMSReport).

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch (cowritten with Jeffrey Zaslow)

Randy Pausch is the computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. This book is based on his last lecture given to his students but written for his family. I've made it a habit of mine to read one chapter a night before I go to bed. This book inspires the living just as much as it inspires the dying. If you have no desire to read the book then do yourself a favor and at least watch the video.
