My boss loaned me the book "The Last Lesture" after he bought it to read on a round-trip business flight (I had recommended getting a book to kill time during the flight).
I highly recommend it and the video; they are both very entertaining and moving.

A very inspiring video by a courageous man. Worth watching. Wish I was half as courageous.

I was at a choir competition for school and there were quotes hanging from the ceiling. One of the quotes was from this lecture and I automatically recognized it.

Everyone in my family has either seen the video or passed the book back and forth between us all. I Recommend that it be required reading in the family. Because of this book it got us all interested in Mitch Albom's books. We have even rented the movies based on the books from Netflix

Wish I had known Randy and been taught by him. He seems like such a wonderful man and a great loss to all those who he has touched. I've watched this video a few times, it's great when you are feeling sad about yourself makes you realise what others are putting up with and has stopped me being so self absorbed. His message is a great one and helped me decide to leave my job to keep chasing my dreams. Please watch this and enjoy it. I now need to get the book.
