‘I asked Jai what she has learned since my diagnosis,’ Randy Pausch wrote about his wife in THE LAST LECTURE. ‘Turns out, she could write a book titled Forget the Last Lecture; Here’s the Real Story.’
DREAM ON traces Jai’s experiences since Randy’s diagnosis, from the constant struggle she faced as a mother of three small children, to the burdens and dilemmas that accompany the role of caregiver: navigating the steep medical learning curve; managing finances; often neglecting one’s one’s needs; making gut-wrenching decisions; and dealing with emotions ranging from guilt and resentment, to our greatest human qualities of compassion and love.
With concrete advice woven artfully into a personal narrative, DREAM ON will resonate and appeal not only to the legions of readers who made THE LAST LECTURE a phenomenal bestseller, but also to all those who have lost — or are in the process of losing — a loved one.

Reviews

A touching memoir of grief . . . Far from being a mere add-on to her late husband's book, this work stands on its own as an eloquent testimony of a caregiver.
Kirkus
A brave and beautiful book. Dream New Dreams grabbed my heart from the opening page and didn't let go until its uplifting end. Jai Pausch is a stirring example of the power of life to triumph over any challenge. Bravo.
