The Last Lecture achieved commercial success on the market. It became a New York Times bestseller in 2008, and remained on the list for 112 weeks, continuing into the summer of 2011. It has been translated into 48 languages and has sold more than 5 million copies in the United States alone. There was also speculation that the book would be turned into a movie, which was personally turned down by Pausch. He commented that "there's a reason to do the book, but if it's telling the story of the lecture in the medium of film, we already have that", in a reference to the video of the lecture.
