Harold W. Harpster - professor of animal science, Penn State Hazleton

Book Title: The Last Lecture

Author: Randy Pausch

Book Description:

This book has nothing to do with my academic discipline but everything to do with my philosophy of life and love of teaching. Randy Pausch was a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon and his book is based on the truly "last lecture" he delivered to family and colleagues shortly before succumbing to pancreatic cancer. In his lecture and in his book he recounts his life and loves, and how he dedicated his life to learning and teaching. It is full of wisdom, wit and good humor as he contemplates his own mortality and his hopes for the future of his family and future generations of students. I hope you are as touched and inspired by this book as I was!
