Do yourself a favor: watch the lecture on YouTube first. Then decide if you want to read this, because 90% of the book is contained in that recording.

I didn't finish this because someone told me to just watch the actual last lecture on YouTube. So I did and now I don't really feel the need to keep reading the book. I like a lot of things Randy tries to impart to his audience, so I was surprised that I didn't cry. He looks so good in the video it's easy to forget he's sick.

P.S. Have you seen that Michael Keaton movie _My Life_? This will remind you of that. Only _My Life_ will make you cry like a baby.
