The Last Lecture

I finally read this wonderful book. You can't imagine how delighted I was when I saw a Sinhalese translation of   this masterpiece by Dr.Randy Pausch.

This book is written around the lecture held by Dr. Pausch, a great scholar of computer based virtual realities and an academic of Carnegie Mellon University, after being diagnosed with a  fatal cancer, his very last lecture so, as well as his life experiences.  

What Dr. Randy Pausch had tried to achieve in his final lecture and the book is to teach how to make one's childhood dreams come true, basically. I'm afraid doing justice to this book with a review is far beyond my  ability. So I'm not going to say much, only that this book has the power to transform you in to a new person,and better person at that.

  1. This is one of those books that truly puts what is important in your life into perspective. It's powerful and moving as it is enlightening. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score." It is an intimate look at the power of God and forgiveness and one that everyone deserves to read.
