Présentation de l'éditeur

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

A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?

When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.

In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

This man gives us his whole life story because, in his mind-thankfully, he has been given notice as to when the end will actually come. Whether you are dealing with a flat tire or terminal cancer, anyone can take something of value from this man's story.

I just finished this book, and I definitely may read it again one day.

"The Last Lecture" by Jeffrey Pausch and Jeffrey Zaslow is book about the life of an extraordinary man.
A man who instead of grieving when he learned that he will die from the terminal disease after several months, through this book and the last lecture at his university summarizes his memories and life experiences in order to leave them as a legacy to his young children and his beloved wife, but also to the whole world .

"The Last Lecture" book together with the video you can find on YouTube and his website are containing his whole presentation together with his many wise observations about family, children, work, friends and life in general.

Randy Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University who also worked as a virtual reality world consultant for Disney company. His university has a tradition to invite its professors to give a last lecture when they're leaving University as a symbolic chance to address to their students for the last time. Randy also took that chance but instead only speaking about his profession he spoke about lot of small events and memories that happened during his life that made him such a beloved person, that made him happy man although he know that will die (too) soon.

Starting from the things he said on the lecture start when he is calling his cancer elephant in the room, up to the end when he said that this complete lecture wasn't for the audience but for his wife and kids, his talking is full of hope and humor although he is literally living his last days.

And although his lecture and this book are about his life, the events that happened to him are happening to all of us in our lives. Therefore, his advices of a man who says goodbye to this world, even though he had much more to give and will be missed very much as a father, husband, friend and expert are full of emotions, smart but most important applicable and useful to each of us.

He speaks things clearly because he has no more time, and although dying his words is full of optimism, hope and humor. Maybe you will disagree with some of his advices, like the one about the brick walls in our lives with whom I don't agree completely but he must be given credit because the whole of his life he was saying and doing things he believed, though due to that he wasn't always the most popular (teacher, husband, son...).

In Randy's book every person can find at least something that can help to be a better, inside there is a bit of wisdom for every one of us.
Randy Pausch died when he was 47 but his lecture and his lessons are so alive and will be for a long time.

Recommended by a college professor, I picked up this book and started reading. I've read many self help and motivation books before this. Yet this one had such a deeper impact. Perhaps it was because he was going to die. Or that I could relate to different situations in his life. All I know is that it's been about two months and I still remember his cliches in detail.

I loved this book! Randy Paush takes the reader on a candid ride throughhis many accomplishments and challenges in a thoughtful and authentic way offering wonderful poignant tips regarding everything from college and business acumen to dating and living strategies. This all of course is thought through when he learns he has only months to live. The book inspires and encourages in an amazing way. I will be purchasing more of this book as gifts . Randy's character shines through and this quality is so rare today that the book is most refreshing. A life lived well...Sue White DCSW, LCSW,CAP< MSHealth Care Admin
