The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch (Audiobook Review)
I knew the topic of this book before listening to it, and so I braced myself for sadness - lots of sadness. What I did not expect was humor and genuine warmth. And, I experienced all of it in extremes because I was listening to Pausch himself narrating his own story. His stories, his words, his wisdom impacted me and will stay with me, probably more so than if I had been simply reading the book. In fact, it is one that I will likely revisit on a regular basis . . . tears and all. Next time, I will stick with the print version. I know that there will be many quotes that I will be taking note of the next time around.
Have you been affected by The Last Lecture? Did you find it as powerful as I did?
