Quick Book Review: The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch with Jeffrey Zaslow


     It was good, but not as massively inspirational as I was expecting it to be with all the people in my book club telling me I should read it because I am a college instructor.  It was touching and certain ideas will definitely stick with me, such as his definition of luck and the real purposes of brick walls.  I watched the actual lecture on YouTube after I finished the book, and the lecture was also o.k., but the book gave you more insights into his reasoning.  I did like seeing more pictures than the book had and the clip he showed of the work created by his students.  The animation sequence was pretty funny!  It is also a very quick read if you are looking for a short one.  Here is the YouTube video if you are interested:
