The topic sounds depressing, but …..

I read the book, The last lecture: lessons in living, by Randy Pausch.  I was aware of the book and when I wanted to give our son something when he graduated last year, I bought the book as a gesture of telling him how proud we, as parents, are of him.

This weekend I started reading the book … what an uplifting book.  The sub-title, Lessons in living, is a good summary what this book is about.

Ashwill told me once about a book in this forum, Training on trail.  It showed me that somebody might just share an idea (or a name of a book) and it becomes valuable to another person. That is why I would like to share this book with you.

Isn’t there a forum in skills universe where one can share articles?  Maybe we should start sharing books that made a difference in our lives with each other.
