It's been ten years since Mitch Albom first shared the wisdom of Morrie Schwartz with the world. Now-twelve million copies later-in a new afterword, Mitch Albom reflects again on the meaning of Morrie's life lessons and the gentle, irrevocable impact of their Tuesday sessions all those years ago. . .
_____
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, helped you see the world as a more profound place, 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, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch 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.

      The book is full of wisdom and I wish I had read it in my mid-twenties rather than mid-thirties

            I normally would have finished this by now but I have been reading this aloud to my husband while we have been travelling together in the truck. We are both enjoying this book.

              I have yet to finish this book but I am finding it a great read (It is taking me longer than normal to read this because I am reading this aloud to my husband while he drives the truck!). We are both enjoying the book.
