The Last Lecture


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.[5] 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.[3]
