Randy Pausch was a beloved family man, Computer Science professor at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Virginia, an Imagineer at Disney, and a bestselling author. This book is a love letter to his family and students. As I read and reread this book, I ran through a spectrum of emotions. One moment I was chuckling, and the next I was weeping.
This is one of my favorite books! I was so impressed with the motivational aspect of this book that I shared the video with my adult college students. Overall, this was an uplifting read! I would highly recommend this book for high school students and everyone.
