A reminder if not an awakening to what really matters in life, the really important stuff. Inspirational in many ways. Will be in several of my Christmas gifts this year. The format of this audio cd was not done in the way that I expected. If I could change one thing I think that I would of liked to had the voice reading the story be Randy Pausch instead of a hired speaker. Great book, Great price.
Purchased the book for my daughter, I bought the CD version for myself because I drive a lot. I had to wipe tears a lot. My daughter says this is one of the most beautiful life stories she has read. I have to agree. It make you realize what is most precious in life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. It was educational, funny, heartwarming and, at times, moved me to tears. This isn't a book about dying, it's a book about living life to the fullest and finding joy in the simple things. I would recommend it to anyone.
This book is more than a word from the wise. A man who has all in life that any human being could ask for is told he has mere months to live. A renowned college professor, rather than waiting to die he chooses to not only LIVE his life, but to share his insights with all of us. A true revelation of not-so-common sense!
