"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."
--Randy Pausch

Not everyone possessed the courage Professor Randy Pausch had. Despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer and left with only a few months to live, he delivered his last lecture in front of an audience of 400 in the autumn of September 2007.

A lecture not about his impeding death but a lecture about living.

The computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon was no different from any man from the streets. Yes, the man had a PhD but like any married man, he has three lovely kids, a beautiful wife and parents in his own words, people that allowed him to dream since he was young.

Some cynics claimed this is just a publicity stunt. To hell with that, why a man like him should pulled such a thing. How much monetary reward can a dying man reap in such short notice?

As compared to many motivational writers out there, Professor Randy Pausch speaks genuinely from his heart simply because he’s been there, the childhood dreams he had and the hard work he put in to materialize those dreams. Some of the anecdotes he shared with us were tongue-in-cheek, touching and at times silly. Believe it or not, he loves to win stuff animals at fairs and he’s going to have a cameo role in the new J.J. Abram’s new Star Trek movie. The journey of his life is coming to an end but you don’t see it coming during those chapters.

This book is only around 200 pages but it’s something that truly strikes you to the core and certainly will inspire you to change the outlook of your life.

Professor Randy Pausch passed away on the morning of July 25th, 2008 but his celebrated last lecture lives on.


The whole book.


For a $18 book, the lessons you received is a lot more than the money spent .
