Id been looking for a good PowerPoint presentation about time management, and the one he gave was deemed to be really interesting, according to the Google searches Id done.As I read the mini-bio attached to the file, it occurred to me that Id heard the name before, so I did some further searching and realized he had written The Last Lecture, which Id heard so much about a few years ago. I immediately headed out and picked up a copy.As I read, I was stunned by the powerful simplicity of his writing. I had already watched The Last Lecture on YouTube, as millions had during the time in which the presentation had gone viral, but I was surprised at the profound effect the book had on me.

This was a man who, by all accounts, had everything going for him: a great job that he loved, three very young children and a beautiful wife whom he adored.MEET THE AUTHORChristina St-Jean an Ontario English teacher with a great passion for American literature in particular and the written word in general. Her two daughters, aged 3 and 7, also seem to have a love of books, as her 7 year old just started reading Tom Sawyer herself.

Christina follows global events as closely as she can but also enjoys entertainment news. Currently, she is working towards a black belt in karate.EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKIf anything, The Last Lecture showed to the world just how pervasive media attention is today- after the lecture itself became a YouTube sensation, Pausch made appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Prime Time Live with Diane Sawyer, in addition to appearing on Times Top 100 list of the worlds most influential people for 2008.He drew the attention of Katie Couric, The Wall Street Journals Jeffrey Zaslow, director J.J.

Abrams, and none other than Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner. He testified before Congress to encourage more funding to be directed to pancreatic cancer research and received a letter from the original President Bush.CHAPTER OUTLINEQuicklet On Randy Pausch & Jeffrey Zaslows The Last Lecture+ Randy Pausch - An Ordinary Inspiration+ About the Author+ The Last Lecture in Context+ The Last Lecture - Plot Summary+ ...and much more
