"The Last Lecture"

by Randy Pausch with Jeffrey Zaslow, 2008, 206p, rating=3

How do I critique the last few words of a dying man? Yes, he had some words of wisdom but words of wisdom are everywhere. Everyone has them whether they know it or not. However, I was moved in the very end. It came down to what the book was really about ... leaving a piece of himself to his wife and kids that they can tangibly hold on to. So beyond those life lessons that Mr. Pausch talked about, what really mattered was that he loves them ... in memories of past times together, now in the present, and in the future when he would be gone. He was doing this by telling them that he existed in this world and made good use of it. Certainly a wonderful legacy that he can leave to his children!
