Read Chic is officially updated! I wanted to do a quick post about the last book I read, The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch.
The Last Lecture is the inspiring story of Randy Pausch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, and his fight against pancreatic cancer. While he eventually lost his battle with cancer, Pausch lived a fulfilling life and shared his personal life lessons with his students during his last lecture. Pausch had an incredibly positive outlook on the world and taught others how to live in the moment and take nothing for granted. His book The Last Lecture is an extension of the actual last lecture given at Carnegie Mellon. Pausch’s last lecture, entitled “Really Achieving your Childhood Dreams”, captivated the world in 2007 and later became a book in 2008. Check out the lecture below.
Both Pausch’s lecture and book have a tremendous amount of valuable advice that audiences of any age can benefit from. After watching and enjoying the lecture I couldn’t wait to read the book. I absolutely loved it and would recommend the book, as well as checking out the last lecture video above, to anyone and everyone looking for an enlightening and truly inspiring story about embracing the important things in life!
