« Philosopher Tom Morris on Tough Economic Times | Main | Behind the Lens at Levenger: Howard & Judy Gale »

May 27, 2008



I was expecting another feel-good pap of a lecture telling me to think positively. Instead, I was enthralled, intrigued and moved to action.

As a long-time and loyal Levenger customer, I am loyal to the brand. This series improves my even high regard. I m grateful to Levenger for the Well-Read Life.

I was so enthralled by Randy Pausch's lecture, I took two days of classes to show it to my students. I got mixed responses from my students, but for some, it was an impetus to work a little harder. As long as I reach any students with Mr. Pausch's lecture, I will show it again and again.

Thank you very much for the link to this lecture. It came at a truly perfect time - how did you know! I have forwarded you e-mail to my entire family and most of my friends. This is one of those which will simply travel around the world, moving people, and giving hope. Steven, you are living Randy's advice to help other people.
Thank you.

The lecture is simply deeply touching in every way. How wonder-FULL to be able to share so much of himself to all of us, and his family as he knows he is leaving this world. How lovely it would be if we could take this example, and give of ourselves each day, attempting to really live fully. Thank you for putting out this meaningful information. I did not know about the book. I am definitely interested in reading it.


How inspiring Randy Pausch is! If you liked "The Last Lecture", another fantastic memoir I just read and highly recommend is "My Stroke of Insight" by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Her TEDTalk video (ted.com) has been seen as many times as The Last Lecture I think, and Oprah did 4 shows on her book, so there are a lot of similarities. In My Stroke of Insight, there's a happy ending though. It's an incredible story! I hear they're making it into a movie.

I have seen Randy Pausch on the Oprah show. Also, I have read his book. He is a great man with a big heart. The lesson that I learned from him is to appreciate what we have.
