Tuesdays with Morrie : An Old Man, a Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson Paperback
by Mitch Albom
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.

It made me regret that i never have had a mentor like Morrie although over the years I have been a "guide" to a handful of others but not as yet(as far as i know!) to the same profound affect.

A very well written book, ESPN analyst Mitch Albom continues to impress me. My belief is anytime you find someone that can write a tear-jerking novella and be in a Sunday forum on ESPN, you've found a very well rounded guy. Great book, definitely a must read.

This is one of my favorite books to give to students that mean a lot to me. I have been lucky enough to have students that I call player and they call me coach. This is a book that should be a litmus test for a person's soul. If the book does not move you then your soul is lost.

The tension of opposites - what a wonderful description of our lives here on this planet. From birth to death, we struggle to stay in balance. What a delightfully sad lesson in living from this little book.

When award-winning sportswriter Mitch Albom learns that his former professor and mentor, sociologist, Morrie Schwartz, is dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease, he begins visiting Schwartz in the last days of his life. This book is a recounting of those visits, with Albom trying to sum up his mentor's positive views on "the meaning of life".
