“Dream New Dreams” by Jai Pausch

Randy Pausch captivated the world with his book “The Last Lecture” before his death from pancreatic cancer in 2008. Now his wife, Jai, is telling her story in “Dream New Dreams: Reimagining My Life After Loss,” with the hope of helping others who are struggling in the role of caregiver, or looking to overcome the pain of loss.

Jai takes readers inside her life as a cancer caregiver, revealing how she learned to juggle caring for her husband and being a mother to three young children. She also offers successful strategies on how she dealt with the loss and grief as she became a single mother; highlights the unproductive behaviors and mindsets she needed to change; and explains how she learned to move forward and find love again with a new man.

Whether you have suffered a loss or are currently caring for someone who is ill, you will find both comfort and inspiration in “Dream New Dreams.”
