Muchos profesores pronuncian conferencias con el título «La última lección». En ellas, los organizadores suelen pedirles que se planteen su propia muerte y consideren qué es lo que más les importa en l. a. vida. Y mientras hablan, el público no puede hacer otra cosa que hacerse l. a. misma pregunta: ¿qué nos gustaría comunicar a los demás si supiéramos que esta es nuestra última oportunidad? Si mañana desapareciéramos, ¿cuál querríamos que fuera nuestro legado al mundo?
Cuando se invitó a Randy Pausch -profesor de ciencias informáticas de Carnegie Mellon- a impartir esta conferencia, no tuvo que echar mano de su imaginación, porque le acababan de diagnosticar un cáncer terminal.

La conferencia fue l. a. suma de todo aquello en lo que cree Randy. period una conferencia sobre l. a. vida. Randy Pausch ha escrito este libro con el mismo humor, convicción e inteligencia que hicieron de su conferencia un inolvidable fenómeno para muchos. los angeles última lección, por eso precisamente, está llamado a conmover y hacer pensar a los lectores durante muchas generaciones.
