Publisher Comments:

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.

From the Hardcover edition.

This book allows the reader to get in touch with what is real in life and what really matters. I have been grateful for the experience and the movie that followed. Our lives get caught up in so much unnecessary information and Morrie brought me back to realizing we all need to get on with life and participate with those we love and are in contact with every day of our lives. This is especially true today when there are so many having difficult times personally and professionally.

I found this book to be wonderfully inspirational. Though the subject is rather sad, the lessons are powerful.This is a simple book with simple messages.

Live fully and in the moment. Treat others with respect, kindness, love, and dignity. Seek joy.
