just how we play the hand Randy Pausch A lot of professors give talks titled The Last Lecture Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them And while they speak, audiences can t help but mull the same question What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy When 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 haveand 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 In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form It is a book that will be shared for generations to come Questions for Randy Pausch We were shy about barging in on Randy Pausch s valuable time to ask him a few questions about his expansion of his famous Last Lecture into the book by the same name, but he was gracious enough to take a moment to answer See Randy to the right with his kids, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe As anyone who has watched the lecture or read the book will understand, the really crucial question is the last one, and we weren t surprised to learn that the secret to winning giant stuffed animals on the midway, like most anything else, is sheer persistence .com I apologize for asking a question you must get far often than you d like, but how are you feeling Pausch The tumors are not yet large enough to affect my health, so all the problems are related to the chemotherapy I have neuropathy numbness in fingers and toes , and varying degrees of GI discomfort, mild nausea, and fatigue Occasionally I have an unusually bad reaction to a chemo infusion last week, I spiked a 103 fever , but all of this is a small price to pay for walkin around .com Your lecture at Carnegie Mellon has reached millions of people, but even with the short time you apparently have, you wanted to write a book What did you want to say in a book that you weren t able to say in the lecture Pausch Well, the lecture was written quickly in under a week And it was time limited I had a great six hour lecture I could give, but I suspect it would have been less popular at that length A book allows me to cover many, many stories from my life and the attendant lessons I hope my kids can take from them Also, much of my lecture at Carnegie Mellon focused on the professional side of my life my students, colleagues and career The book is a far personal look at my childhood dreams and all the lessons I ve learned Putting words on paper, I ve found, was a better way for me to share all the yearnings I have regarding my wife, children and other loved ones I knew I couldn t have gone into those subjects on stage without getting emotional .com You talk about the importance and the possibility of following your childhood dreams, and of keeping that childlike sense of wonder But are there things you didn t learn until you were a grownup that helped you do that Pausch That s a great question I think the most important thing I learned as I grew older was that you can t get anywhere without help That means people have to want to help you, and that begs the question What kind of person do other people seem to want to help That strikes me as a pretty good operational answer to the existential question What kind of person should you try to be .com One of the things that struck me most about your talk was how many other people you talked about You made me want to meet them and work with them and believe me, I wouldn t make much of a computer scientist Do you think the people you ve brought together will be your legacy as well Pausch Like any teacher, my students are my biggest professional legacy I d like to think that the people I ve crossed paths with have learned something from me, and I know I learned a great deal from them, for which I am very grateful Certainly, I ve dedicated a lot of my teaching to helping young folks realize how they need to be able to work with other people especially other people who are very different from themselves .com And last, the most important question What s the secret for knocking down those milk bottles on the midway Pausch Two part answer 1 long arms 2 discretionary income persistence Actually, I was never good at the milk bottles I m of a ring toss and softball in milk can guy, myself More seriously, though, most people try these games once, don t win immediately, and then give up I ve won lots of midway stuffed animals, but I don t ever recall winning one on the very first try Nor did I expect to That s why I think midway games are a great metaphor for life Made famous by his Last Lecture at Carnegie Mellon and the quick Internet proliferation of the video of the event, Pausch decided that maybe he just wasn t done lecturing Despite being several months into the last stage of pancreatic cancer, he managed to put together this book The crux of it is lessons and morals for his young and infant children to learn once he is gone Despite his sometimes contradictory life rules, it proves entertaining and at times inspirational Surprisingly, the audiobook doesn t include the reading of Pausch s actual Last Lecture, which he gave on September 18, 2007, a month after being diagnosed Erik Singer provides an excellent inflective voice that hints at the reveries of past experiences with family and children while wielding hope and regret for family he will leave behind The first CD is enhanced with photos Copyright Reed
