The Last Lecture

In a previous post I mentioned a book and CD set we had in the library entitled The Last Lecture. The author, Randy Pausch, a computer science professor, was diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer and dictated the book by cell phone to co-author, Jeffrey Zaslow. He also delivered his last lecture to his students at Carnegie Mellon University. His book is really a celebration of life.

Randy Pausch died today at his home in Chesapeake Virginia. He was 47.
