Don’t Lecture Me; OK, Do

If you haven’t heard of this book yet, let me be the first to say, “I’m glad you just learned how to read.” The Last Lecture, which is based on the extraordinary final lecture by Carnegie Mellon University professor Randy Pausch, is at or near the top of nearly every bestseller list I have seen during the last several weeks. The book is an outgrowth of a lecture Mr. Pausch gave after he discovered he had pancreatic cancer. This slim volume is an eminently moving meditation that has begun to inspire readers to live each day with renewed purpose and joy. Usually, I don’t like being lectured to, but I made an exception in this case. If you haven’t done so already, consider submitting as well.
