im reading.... [The Last Lecture]  読んでいる本「最後の授業」

Have been started my work since May 2009. Life is busy with learning.working and learning.working...

But stil, soul nutritious from the habit of reading is playing important role in my life (altough it has been quite sometimes i really reading a book seriously...)

Recently, I am reading a book named "The last lecture" which is recommended by my friends. Feeling relieved when reading it because I can get rid from Japanese for a least that moments... :)

I am still working on it, currently at page72 over 206 pages. It is a true story and is all about LIVING. I was touched for several times although just read < 1/3 of the book. He was a brave man.

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."
--Randy Pausch, the author of the book.

The book is about...
" When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living."
