Jai Pausch On Dreaming New Dreams - The Huffington Post

Cheryl Little, head of the Point Breeze private school, recalls that her meeting in the fall of 2006 with Randy and Jai Pausch was unlike any other prospective parent meeting she'd had in her career. Normally, she explains, these are informal discussions lasting about 20 minutes in which she asks parents to tell her a little more about their child. The Pausches "took it in a different direction," interviewing her for almost two hours. "It was the hardest, most intense interview I've ever had," she says. Randy Pausch wanted to see a pie chart breaking down the school's financial expenditures as well as the results of its latest self-study for accreditation. "No one has ever asked for that, especially for a 3-year-old," Little adds.

This was a good reference for many who grieve or have lost loved ones through cancer. The 'flow' of the book is written slightly sporadic and dragged out. It is interesting in reading of Jai Pausch's experience. Many people will be sure to benefit from it. Book clubs can feel safe in reading and discussing this book. I won this book and am appreciative of the opportunity to read and review it. Otherwise, I am sure I would never have purchased it.

DREAM NEW DREAMS – Jai Pausch « Two Roads

Randy and Jai Pausch were married on May 20, 2000, beneath a 100-year-old oak tree on the lawn of the Frick Art & Historical Center in Point Breeze. She wanted a small, intimate ceremony. Always a showman, he wanted something big and dramatic. Here was the compromise: After the ceremony, the couple lifted off in a hot-air balloon. "It's like a fairy-tale ending to a Disney movie," the bride exclaimed. Unfortunately, their balloon drifted far off course, and they found themselves unable to land. The balloon finally touched down that night, perilously close to an oncoming train. They ran for their lives.
