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.
Tuesdays with Morrie : An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson
I adore this book. Good explanations for things we question about in life, such as family, love, marriage, happiness, and age.
The best person to teach about the meaning and the goal of life is a person that are about to die. This concept is the main theme for this book. Throughout the stories, you will learn on how Morrie's experiences shape his behaviour and how he views his life differently from others. Heartbreaking yet motivational stories. Highly recommended!
This is, I guess, my 5th copy of the book. My colleagues gifted me my first copy way back in 2000 and I absolutely fell in love with it. I read it every time before the beginning of a new semester as it reminds me of the meaning of life and what values I should be teaching my students. I have give this book as a present to many students as I know they will benefit from it. Please read it, you will definitely love it
