This was too easy for me. My senior year of high school I took a college writing course. We had to read one non-fiction book over break and I chose The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch.
|They say not to judge a book by its cover, but this one is adorable.|
An amazing father, professor and dreamer whose life was briefly put on hold because of cancer. This situation happens far too frequently in life today. However, Randy didn't let it stop him.
|The man himself during his last lecture.|
The book is inspiring, heart-wrenching, heart-warming, tear-jerking and about a thousand other adjectives wrapped into one.
As an avid reader I don't often find books that really make me say "Wow" when they're done. This one did.
My brother took the same college class two years after I did and had to read a non-fiction book. Now, he is not a reader at all but I suggested this to him
Young, old, healthy, sick, reader, not a reader, male, female, anyone can relate to this book and be moved by Randy's words.
If you pick up a book as a result of this link up, make it this one.
PS once you finish the book, watch the last lecture on YouTube. It'll make the book feel all the more real and put things in perspective that much more
Have an awesome Saturday!
