A lot of professors give talks titled “The Last Lecture.” They are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can’t help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, packed quite a punch as he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The combined humor, inspiration and intelligence that he exhibited made his lecture a phenomenon. This is a book that will be shared for generations to come.

Books will be available at the Circulation Desk. Here’s a look at the book…
