Oh man, such a great book. Such an inspirational read. I read this for my Thanatology class in senior year, and it is definitely a book for everyone to read. Basically, a man is asked to give a last lecture, only it will actually be his last lecture ever because he suffers from pancreatic cancer. A true story, and almost word for word the same lecture he gave out, but in book form, this book is filled with a mixture of lessons for people to learn from. Some of these are fun, like giving a story from Disneyland to show that sometimes all you have to do is ask, to extremely simple lessons, like when a simple polite note got a woman what she wanted. Definitely something everyone should read.
