Like Tuesdays with Morrie, this book is a collection of the parting words and advice of a dying man. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch is, however, a bit different.
The book is in the first person, and though Pausch had help compiling it, it seems to come mostly from him. Tuesdays was from the biographer's perspective. Both books are about former professors, but Tuesdays is about an old man; The Last Lecture is the story of a man with three young kids.
The practical advice and enjoyable anecdotes in the book are what make it a winner. My personal favorite is Pausch's "First Penguin" award -- given to risk-taking students. After all, who knows what is in the water when the first penguin jumps in?
Short, funny, insightful. Worth a read.
