Death is the most dreaded reality of life. What if you found out that you had just one chance left in life to do something? What will you choose to do? in 2007, the author of this book, Randy Pausch gave a very inspirational lecture at Carnegie Mellon Hall, to his colleagues and students called The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. The lecture was an inspirational one, about emerging triumphant after combating obstacles and seizing opportunities for achieving your dreams.

The author was diagnosed with cancer, a month before his memorable lecture. The mind-boggling response received from the start till the end of the lecture motivated him to pen down his lecture into a book. The Last Lecture contains anecdotes from the author's childhood and adulthood that shaped his character. The decisions he made and their consequences are all mentioned in detail in this book.

The Last Lecture also covers his battle with cancer and his positive attitude in times of such a health crisis. The entire book is full of inspiration and positive energy, which catapulted it to become a bestseller. This book is published by Two Roads in 2008 and is available in paperback.
