I absolutely loved this book! All of the praise is correct, as far as I'm concerned. Every section discussed some of Pausch's thoughts on life and each one seemed remarkably true and intelligent. I tried to pick just one or two gems from throughout the book, but I just couldn't narrow it down. Perhaps what impressed me the most was Pausch's outlook on life - he was positive throughout while still acknowledging the sorrow and difficulty of his situation. I also really loved how everything was always about his family - his wife and three young children. They are the most important things to him. Now, if only we could gain the perspective of a terminal patient without having the terminal part. I think that is one purpose for writing a book like this.
A few, not overwhelming.
