"The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch

Recently read this and gained a lot of inspiration from it, whilst it is very sad the author remained very upbeat and has provided some brilliant quotes which I shall be snaffling at some point or other.

Does anyone else have any book recommendations for a little inspiriation or for an uplift?

I look forward to your recommendations.

PS to clarify, the book itself is not sad as such in fact very up beat its the fact that the author was terminally ill and it was literally his "last lecture" (he was a Professor)... as a legacy to his young children.

What comes to my mind is an Iron Maiden song (the Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.... )
