The Last Lecture

School holiday has started! Children, don't forget to make use of this time to enrich yourself too k? Let Teacher Jerry introduce you to a very inspiring book - The Last Lecture.

This book is about how the author Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn’t have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. '

But the lecture he gave—“Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”—wasn’t about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.

This is one good book that I would strongly recommend to everyone. After reading this book, you will start thinking about your dreams. Your childhood dreams. And you are more then welcome to share them with me if you don't mind! Of course, I will share mine with you too! =)

In case, you wish to have a preview before buying the books, check out his speech on the Oprah Winfrey Show. You will be inspired. Very inspired.
