Read full description of the books L'ultima lezione. La vita spiegata da un uomo che muore:Nel settembre del 2OO6 Randy Pausch è un brillante professore di informatica della Carnegie Mellon University di Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania. Ha una moglie, tre bambini e ama appassionatamente il suo lavoro, i suoi colleghi, i suoi studenti. E allora che i medici gli diagnosticano un cancro del pancreas in stadio ormai avanzato. Un anno dopo, il 18 settembre del 2007, Pausch tiene la sua ultima lezione pubblica, la "Last Lecture", davanti a un pubblico di quattrocento persone, lasciando ad amici e colleghi il suo ultimo messaggio: "Realizzate i vostri sogni d'infanzia". Con coraggio e ironia, Pausch ripercorre le tappe della sua esperienza partendo dalla lista dei desideri di quando aveva otto anni, e mentre racconta il destino (e l'importanza) di quei sogni, il suo discorso di congedo si trasforma nella testimonianza straordinaria di una vita resa unica dall'intensità con la quale è stata vissuta.
Read information about the authorI am flattered and embarassed by all the recent attention to my "Last Lecture." I am told that, including abridged versions, over six million people have viewed the lecture online. The lecture really was for my kids, but if others are finding value in it, that is wonderful. But rest assured; I'm hardly unique. Send your kids to Carnegie Mellon and the other professors here will teach them valuable life lessons long after I'm gone. -- Randy
Randy Pausch was a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States and a best-selling author, who achieved worldwide fame for his "The Last Lecture" speech on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon University.
In August 2006, Pausch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He pursued a very aggressive cancer treatment that included Whipple procedure surgery and experimental chemotherapy; however, in August 2007, he was told the cancer had metastasized to his liver and spleen, which meant it was terminal. He then started palliative chemotherapy, intended to extend his life as long as possible. At that time, doctors estimated he would remain healthy for another three to six months. On May 2, 2008, a PET scan showed that his cancer had spread to his lungs, some lymph nodes in his chest and that he had some metastases in his peritoneum and retroperitoneum.
On June 26, 2008, Pausch indicated that he was considering stopping further chemotherapy because of the potential adverse side effects. He was, however, considering some immuno-therapy-based approaches.
On July 24, 2008, on behalf of Pausch, his friend (anonymous) posted a message on Pausch's webpage indicating cancer progression further than what was expected from recent PET scans and Pausch becoming more sick than ever. It was announced that his family had sent him into a hospice program — palliative care to those at the end of life.
On July 25, 2008, Diane Sawyer announced on Good Morning America that Pausch had died earlier that morning.
