if you are giving the last lecture, what would you say?, 20. Juni 2009
This book is a proof that it doesn't take a super-complicated-philosophical book to be inspired, motivated or to look into the meaning of life.
Though simple, this book is "simply" amazing, sincere, thoughtful, touching, and full of wisdom.
Though sad, it is full of optimism. Whether you are a dying patient or a perfectly healthy person, you will feel connected to the author and everyone mentioned in this book.
will it be considered a piece of literature? Not by today's critics. Is it a piece that can affect you one way or the other? Definitely yes, though i know lots of ppl who already think that the whole idea of the book is "i am amazing, and everyone around me is amazing too". But.... think about it that way, what do u expect from someone who is addressing his children and trying to encourage others to live their dreams?
It doesn't have to be a "tragedy" to admire someone's life experience, but unfortunately, this is the case with most of the ppl. who are moved only by traumatic events.
Again, it is simple in a way it will reach everyone yet you have to see beyond "Randy's" story itself. Ask your self, if you are giving the last lecture, what would you say?
