Professional reviews

"A sort of reverse engineering created this recording of Pausch's book of life lessons, based on his lecture "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--first a sensation as a viral video on YouTube. The video, the book, and the audiobook are now part of the legacy Pausch left after his death from pancreatic cancer in July 2008. Narrator Erik Singer skillfully becomes Pausch for listeners. He adopts the Carnegie Mellon computer science professor's direct, exuberant manner but tempers it with the serious and wistful reflection that the work embodies. Singer gets across the "live in the moment" philosophy that Pausch embraced and creates an audio experience that honors him. Worth multiple re-listenings and sharings.
