What would you say? What wisdom would you impart? What are your lessons in life?

For Randy, this was not a hypothetical question. With this revelation out of the way, he gave a talk about achieving your childhood dreams and enabling the dreams of others.

About the Book

The lecture was so full of optimism, clarity, hope, humour, and sincerity that the YouTube video went viral and a few months later it was published as a book. Like the lecture, the book is earnest and straightforward.

Randy tells a story then gives us the moral in case we missed it. He fills his stories with humour, occasionally laugh out loud. What comes across most strongly is his deep love for his wife and children who he knew he would be leaving behind. It's hard to read this book and not have a good impression of the author. He seems like a great guy, someone that you would love to have as a mentor or friend.

I think this is reason that the lecture was such a success; his personality makes a watcher puts more stock in his words. This still comes across in the book, although not as strongly as in the lecture.

In fact, without seeing him on video and hearing him speak the words, reading the book can almost get a bit tiring. Some of the advice in the book, especially that which goes beyond what he said in the lecture, can be a bit tough to swallow.

Similarly, he often speaks of the great mentors, friends, and supporters that he has had through his life; not everyone goes to a university where the professors have such extensive connections to facilitate their student's careers.

He never says to expect something for nothing, but does imply that anything you want to achieve is possible if only you work hard enough at it. Please enter the message. Please verify that you are not a robot. Would you also like to submit a review for this item?

David and Goliath. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance?
