"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.… (mais)

A quick but worthwhile read, especially coming from a professor in my field who worked at a top university. ( )

Simply written and highly accessible, effective advice. ( )

Loving the optimism shown in this book, though Randy was unwell, he has definitely opened up my mind a lot!

Here's my full review:

Beyond inspiring and a very quick read, I picked this up based on the recommendation of a friend. Mr. Pausch's amazing journey is one that makes you think about the important things in life and how to make the most of the time you have. As it is derived from an actual lecture, the book has a conversational tone that allows you to truly connect to the story. You'll walk away with a bit of a smile but finding yourself moved in some incredibly emotional ways. ( )

[b:The Last Lecture|40611510|The Last Lecture|Randy Pausch|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1529682044l/40611510._SX50_.jpg|3364076] is quite a book.

It hits all the harder reading it for the first time now, knowing that Randy Pausch died a year after this lecture/book came out, but even that was a decade ago. His children are in high school/college now. His wife Jai eventually remarried. Some things change and move on. Some don't.

There is a lot of good advice in this book and a lot of stories that really make you think. Conversely, there are quite a few of the sections wherein you realize just how lucky and, to some sense, privileged Randy Pausch was. Always carry $200 in your wallet? A life of well connected mentors and friends (that he helped to cultivate, granted)? He's also very much an engineer. It shows both in how he looks at the world and how he tackles life.

So overall, Randy Pausch sounds like a good man. He cared about his family and tried to do the best he could with a crappy situation. It's not necessarily a book for life advice, but it is an interesting read.

Really, the one thing is should do is make you wonder: what would my Last Lecture be like? ( )
