The Last Lecture Reviews

  • Brandice

    I had read a small excerpt from The Last Lecture online a few years ago and enjoying what I read, added the book to my TBR list. Today while I was browsing the bookstore, [because the 19 books at home waiting to be read aren’t enough - a “problem” I know many of you can relate to! ;)] it was on display on a table so I picked it up and started reading...

    While the book is small, it’s filled with wise words. Despite receiving news of a terminal illness, Randy’s story is one of optimism more so than

    “Are you a Tigger or an Eyore?”

    I couldn't bring myself to finish this book. Perhaps the author's buildup to the ultimate last lecture raised my expectations too high, but I found myself working hard to try to maintain interest as I plowed through a series of anecdotes and trite observations. I suspect I would have enjoyed the book more if he had simply written about his work at the university, but I did not feel a connection to the author, despite his obvious courage in the face of a terminal illness.

    I suppose a reader can't

    I arrived late to the parade -- sadly, the first I ever heard of Randy Pausch was when his obit ran on CNN.com late last month. The bulk of the story centered around the "last lecture" that made him famous well beyond the halls of the universities where he taught and in the scientific realm.

    A few nights later, a guy who took the seat next to me on the train home was reading the book Pausch and Jeffrey Zaslow put out based off his lecture. I gave it a few glances out of the corner of my eye and d

    I am writing this review with barely 4 hours to go before 2013. I picked this book up to inspire me to face another year. I learned about this book when I took our company-mandated safety leadership training last month. Our corporate safety manager talked highly of this as he related Randy Pausch's very personal experience with what one person's ultimate objective in life, i.e., what should really matter to each of us in the training room.

    For those who are not familiar with this 2008 bestselling

    (1) Live simple life - don't buy things to impress others

    (2) Never make a decision until you have to.

    (3) Even if in a position of strength, whether at work or in relationships, you have to play fair. Just because you're in a driver's seat, doesn't mean you have to run people over.

    (4) Parents should make their love known to their children. They don't need to be alive to do this.

    (5) If your car has a dent, you don't have to have it removed. It could be a statement of who you are. Not everything needs to be fixed.

    (6) Don't finish someone's sentences. And talking louder or faster doesn't make your idea any better.

    (7) If you wait long enough, people will surprise and impress you.

    (8) Not what they do, not what they say.

    (9) Whether you think you can or can't, you're right.

    (10) A lot of people want a shortcut. I find the best shortcut is the long way, which is basically two words: work hard.

    (11) Proper apologies have three parts:
    A) What I did was wrong

    B) I feel badly that I hurt you

    C) How do I make this better?
    If there is one lesson that I consider the best advice I got from Randy Pausch, this should be it: (12) If I could give three words of advice, they would be "tell the truth." If I got three more words, I'd add: "All the time."

    Happy New Year everyone! I wish you more books, books, books! ...more

    It's hard to criticize a dying man. I think this is a great book for his wife, family, children, and friends to read, and although it has some good life lessons that are not revolutionary but do need repeating from time to time, this book is not well written. At points while I was reading I found myself actually disliking Pausch and his way of presenting himself, but then I realized that this would perhaps make me a horrible person. Maybe I am. I very much prefer Tuesdays With Morrie for a simil ...more

    لأكون صريحة لم أتوقع أن يأثر فيَّ هذا الكتاب جداً ، ربما لأنني أظن أني متفائلة كفاية لأرى الجانب الممتلئ من الكأس لكن هذا الكتاب اخترق سقف توقعاتي ، قد لا تعنينا جميعاً أحلام راندي ولكن قوته وتفائله وعطاءه وثقته بنفسه وتحديه للمرض بتفائله الواقعي وتقبله للواقع هي مايدعونا لنندهش كيف لشخص مثله أن يختصر حياته بين دفتّي كتاب ومحاضرة لا تتجاوز الساعة ، كيف له أن يلقي الكلمة الأخيرة لكل من أثر بحياته وشاركه الطريق ويودعهم بامتنان ، بكيت في الصفحات الموجهة لأبناءه وزوجته لأنه كان صادقاً جداً ولم يكن ي ...more
