Book Review: The Last Lecture
A small book, The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch and Jeffrey Zaslow is a wonderful example of an ethical will, and is an inspiring read. Just over 200 pages, it is filled with savvy, insight, and motivation to live your childhood dreams and enable those of others. If you are a parent or play a significant role in a child's life, it is a must read. Having married an engineer, I took special gratitude in reading Randy's thoughts and comments. Engineers have a unique way of looking at the world -- blunt, but too the point. If you do pick up this book, I recommend having a box of tissues close at hand.
