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.

Industry Reviews

* 'A beautifully written book of great clarity and wisdom that lovingly captures the simplicity beyond life's complexities' - M Scott Peck, author of THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED. * 'This is a true story that shines and leaves you forever warmed by its afterglow' - Amy Tan, author of THE JOY LUCK CLUB

This book is well worth a read


The book started as a recognition of the symptoms suffered by many people, me included, but when Morrie's condition degenerated into life-threatening, it became much more serious. Well written but just a bit too much emphasis, or harping if you will, on the 'love' angle. Well worth a read, taken with just a touch of a grain of salt, ie, a tad too much on the side of morbid sentimentality.
