  • Product Description

    In The Last Lecture Randy Pausch had combined humor, inspiration and intelligence to encourage readers to understand we cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.

    Randy Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, and gave a lecture, that he didn't have to imagine as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. 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.

    This book is an excellent way to inspire people to rethink the value of their life and seize every moment. The reader can't help but mull the question: What wisdom would I impart to the world if I knew it was my last chance? If I had to vanish tomorrow, what would I want as my legacy? A meaningful way to extend your brand into your audience's everyday life.
