Product description

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - MItch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final 'class': lessons in how to live. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

What an amazing book to read. This is a great book of lessons and eye opening events. Its a must for anyone to read. It teaches you to live rather then die and waste time in your life.

Editorial reviews

When Mitch Albom hears on television that his old college professor, Morrie Schwartz, is dying of a neurological disease, he goes to visit him and ends up taking what he refers to as 'our last class' - the subject of this book. The professor embarks on a series of Tuesday studies, decanting the wisdom of his years for the benefit of Albom. Together, the pair talk about death, regrets, money, family, feeling sorry for yourself, marriage, culture and forgiveness. With little resort to feel-good phrases or soppy truisms, Albom presents the relationship through dialogue, in seminars and in 'audio-visual' excerpts which makes the sadness of his teacher's passing all the more poignant.
