The Last Lecture (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.138

A lot of rofessors give talks titles titled The Lat Lecture. rofessors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they seak, audiences cant hel but mull the same question: What wisdom would we imart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?

When Randy ausch, a comuter science rofessor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didnt have to imagine it as his last, science he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams wasnt about dying. It was about the imortance 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.

In this book, Randy ausch has combined the humor, insiration, and intelligence that made his lecture such a henomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

His Last Lecture, your first!

It's fascinating how a man who knows that his days on Earth are numbered can actually approach his impending death with such panache! And in the process, he even manages to help the readers set a few ground rules for living life to the fullest. Randy Pausch had it all - be it a lovely family, a neat job, a wonderful life. Everything that a man could ask for! That's why it's hard to digest the cancer's attempt at playing spoilsport. I say attempt because even though cancer was out to put a full-stop on Randy's life, he made sure it served as a comma - not just in his life, but also in the li... ()

I say attempt because even though cancer was out to put a full-stop on Randy's life, he made sure it served as a comma - not just in his life, but also in the lives of his loved ones!
This book is not about death, but it's about life. It's about living life the way it should be, and to make the most of the chances and the time we get in one lifetime. It's about staying alive even after death... it's about leaving a legacy!
Mr. Pausch's last lecture will surely serve as a first lecture for many on how to approach the remainder of their lives.
Hats off Randy!

Give's you a reason to think....!!!!!

We all know we have to die, but what if one day you recognize that you have less time than you think and you have lot to do.

That was Randy Pausch, a lecturer who just inspires you and forces you to introspect within, to find yourself and prioritize your life.
There would be a point in the book where you could feel bored but just flip a couple of pages and you are ought to be caught again by the book,
Not just because it's written beautifully but because it resembles the life of every other man, with only a difference that the persons it's talking about knows he is going to die anyway, lea...

Not just because it's written beautifully but because it resembles the life of every other man, with only a difference that the persons it's talking about knows he is going to die anyway, leaving behind his three children( the eldest being 6 years) and a widow.
But as Randy said,"You cannot change the cards you are dealt, it's how you play the hand."

This book is certainly going to change the way you think and live.

And you are going Gift it to the people you want to get inspired by life.
I did it, I'm sure whosoever reads it will do the same.

An Introspective Read...

Randy Pausch was not a professional writer and this is not just another 'non fiction', 'self-help' book. He was a professor of Computer Science, Human Interaction design at Carnegie Melon university. He has worked with Google, Adobe, EA.

The title gives you a fair bit of hint what's this book about. It's common for American Professors to look back on their lives imagining they are going to die soon and deliver a lecture in which they tell the audience what matters to them the most and what they have learned in the course of living.

Well, Randy Pausch did not have to imagine he was going to die soon while delivering his last lecture. He was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and had only months to live while he was preparing for his lecture. So ironically his 'Last Lecture' was actually going to be his 'Last Lecture'. This is what makes this book a compelling read.

In this book he talks about his childhood and how he achieved his childhood dreams, he talks about his battle with cancer, about people who were important in his life and many other things that made him who he was.

The most endearing thing while reading this book is the absolute frankness and honesty with which he talks to the readers and his children through the book.

A very good book. Highly Recommended.

Pausch delivered his last lecture at Carnegie Mellon in August 2006 and titled it ???Achieving to your childhood dreams.??? True to his words, he presented his ambitions as a child and how he went about in achieving them. It was all about his passion for a dream which enabled him to fulfill it - howsoever exorbitant it was.

This book is highly motivational and people will connect to it very quickly. It inspires you to go out there and demolish that brick wall which has been stopping you from achieving your dream. A great read.

Not a review but a doubt!

I seriously doubt the sanity of those who have given this one a single star! A friend of mine gifted me this one on my 23rd birthday! I wish I had read it earlier. A book like The Last Lecture not only inspires you but also gives you a lot of courage and positivity while dealing with life. The quotes, the presentation, The pictures, the feelings made the reading an intense experience. Take a bow Randy Pausch.

P.S- Writing a review was a "head fake" here. All I wanted to write was the first line.
