I'm sure most everyone has heard about this book. Randy Pausch, the author, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and after battling it every way he could, he was told that his illness was terminal and he had 3 to 6 months to live. His attitude during that time is what makes the story remarkable. Pausch's last lecture is the legacy that he wanted to leave behind for his students, colleagues, friends and most especially for his wife and 3 young children. I highly recommend it to anyone. It's a quick and inspiring read. Or you can watch the video of his last lecture here if you're not into reading... in which case, why are you reading this blog?
