It is one of the best books I have read. Randy Pausch wrote this book regarding his life. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and only 3-6 months to live. He has 3 small children. And shows his life before and after finding out he has cancer and how he stayed optimistic and how to live your own life. Randy passed away in July 2008, leaving behind his wife, 2 sons and a daughter. You will smile, laugh and of course cry.
Here is the video of Randy giving his "Last Lecture":
