it was amazing
bookshelves: read-2009
Read in April, 2009

I thought it was an excellent book. Randy wrote this book while dying of cancer. He had 10 tumors but visibly looked healthy. He was a professor who gave his last lecture about all the lessons he learned during his life and left messages to his three children who would most likely not remember him. He died before the book was published but I enjoyed his thoughts on life and agreed with many of them.

Jessica Thanks girls. I'll really look forward to reading it as well. It sounded so inspiring when I read the reviews on my book club.
