The Last Lecture

This book should be on everyone’s bookshelf, or better, on their nightstand. It is written by a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who is dying of pancreatic cancer. It is a short book with conveniently divided “chapters” dealing with his life, his childhood dreams and how he went about achieving them, and the prospect of his death. He is funny, self-effacing and a very good writer. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of his life and legacy, and always has a message for the reader. I will come back to this book again and again to reread certain sections. A great, great read!
