My sister recently read this book and passed in onto me last week---will read it over the weekend.
"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand." Randy Pausch
* Randy Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon
* He learned he had pancreatic cancer in Sept 2006
* In August 2007 he was given 3-6 months to live
* He gave an upbeat lecture titled "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" on September 18, 2007, at Carnegie Mellon, which became a popular YouTube video and led to other media appearances. He then co-authored a book called The Last Lecture on the same theme, which became a New York Times best-seller.
Pausch died of complications from pancreatic cancer on July 25, 2008.
This should be a good read---will peruse it this coming weekend.
