‘Last Lecture’ Randy Pautsch dies

with 3 comments

I was wandering around a book store in the Philippines while a friend who i was there with was finishing off something.  I says this book titled the ‘Last Lecture’ with a cover that looked like it was that of a journal or scrapbook.  I had been reading about the ‘Last Lecture’ series on the internet and was curious to see what the author had to say.

Randy Pautsch as we all know, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had just a few months to live.  So when he was asked to give a ‘last lecture’ in the tradition of the Carnegie Mellon’s outgoing professors, he knew it would be truly the last one and focussed the lecture on achieving childhood dreams.  The thing that i enjoyed most about this book was the fact that rather than being a chest thumping display of prowess Randy thought of it as being a legacy to leave behind for his children.

Here is the wired story link on his passing.  Condolences to his wife and children.
