The Last Lecture (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 150

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.

The Last Lecture

This is a great book, written in simple language. It talks about a man and his last days after being diagnosed with cancer.
It is not one of those cliché novels where you are told how to cope with death.
A must read for everybody!

Amazing book..you will find good lessons for your life....

i purchased this book several months back what i find is the positive attitude of the author in the book. whatever he mentioned is true to his words, he tried to explain life problems in a worthy and simplistic manner.

The most inspirational book!!!

Imagine receiving the most inspirational lecture from the man who has his days numbered! Prof. Randy Pausch had just 6 months left to live as per his doctors and yet the man shared all his experiences in one lecture and taught others how to work hard to achieve their dreams.

Essential Life Lessons...

This book is an amazing journey....what would you do if you had just months to live and a couple of 2-5 year old kids to take care of, you leave them money, you leave them someone to care for them(their mom) but you will never be able to share the sum total of your life experiences with your kids...… (View complete review)

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 lives

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, leavin

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.

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

it's life coz u live it!!!

Its not a book ...it's more an experiment by a man keeping grim reapers at bay.
it portrays the small things of life that make it beautiful like the aroma of earth after first shower or chuckling of your child...
although I imagined how difficult it must have been on Randy knowing everything would end in such a short notice.
You must read it to revise the known fact ...what a gift this life is !
RIP Randy Pausch...you gave us a marvel!

It tells you how to live ! & not in a preachy way...

" Don't tell people how to live. Tell them stories and they'll figure out themselves how to live their own. "

These were his lines. Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon professor of computer science was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer with only a few months to live.

He decided to live these months to the fullest. The story is about how he goes about doing that. In the process, he gave one last lecture in his university which went viral and garnered more than 15 million hits on youtube.

My advice to you would be just this - Don't think twice to buy this book. And you won't be disappointed. :)

Heart rapturing book.

Just fallen in love with the writer. He is the purest soul you'll ever feel in life. My eyes drenched in tears in many of the episodes. His love was so pure and divine. His purpose of writing this book is not only how to conquer childhood dreams but also giving lessons for his three children in his absence.
May God shower blessing to his soul. Thank you heavenly Mr. Pausch for writing this beautiful book.

Caution : This book can change you forever.

Its not just a book, its divine and holy and altogether a life changing one. Randy speaks about simple things which in a large picture become so important. There are number of aspects that Randy speaks about and all of which will touch a sensible reader. His strict football coach, the headfake, the credit card episode, a stuffed penguin toy for a failed less profile innovative project all define Randy. Its a book that I have read it again and again, gifted to every friend and relative of mine. In a word - It can change the way you think and change you forever.

Highly motivational work

“The brick walls are not there to stop you. They are only there to check how badly you want the thing behind the wall.” This pretty much sums up the book. Written by Randy Pausch, Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon and a terminal patient of pancreatic cancer, this book entails author’s life story in an inspirational way.

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 wh
