A very honest and poignant last lecture, given by a computer science professor dying of pancreatic cancer, full of wisdom for his friends, coworkers,students, and family. It is about the importance of going after your dreams, enabling the dreams of others, gratitude, and overcoming obstacles and taking advantage of any opportunities that come your way, in short living your life, and making every day count, because you never know how much time you have left. The author's humor, intelligence, and wisdom make this a very inspirational read. The advice is not especially new, but what is even more inspirational, is the author's optimism, and love for life, his students, his career, and especially his family, and his dedication to leaving his family with a legacy and the means to take care of themselves physically, spiritually, and emotionally after he is gone.
