A ‘Lecture’ People Are Seeking

June 4, 2008

Even though people usually are repelled from voluntary lectures, I’ve seen a lot of customers down at River City Books buying a book called The Last Lecture. If you haven’t heard of it, the book is based on the extraordinary final lecture by Carnegie Mellon University professor Randy Pausch, given after he discovered he had pancreatic cancer. This moving book goes beyond the now-famous lecture and has begun to inspire readers to live each day with purpose and joy. A slim, neatly designed book that would make a great grad or Father’s Day gift.
