Publisher Comments:

In early 1995, Mitch Albom — award-winning sportswriter, NY Times bestselling author, radio talk show host, television commentator — turned on Nightline. There on the screen was his former college professor and mentor, Morrie Schwartz, whom Mitch had not spoken to since graduating from college and embarking on a relentless drive to succeed. In his soft tones Morrie was talking to Ted Koppel about impending death — his own.

Moved, and shamed by his own silence, Mitch flew to Massachusetts to visit Morrie — and came back every Tuesday until Morrie's disease finally took him from this life. Every Tuesday they talked — about love, money, commitment, spirit, what most people spend their lives thinking and doing and what really matters in the world. And as Morrie's time grew short, he gave Mitch one final, lasting gift: The wisdom to see his own life as something different than the accretion of fame, money, and success.

Tuesdays with Morrie is Mitch Albom's extraordinary chronicle of their time together, a book filled with laughter, sadness, joy and peace. Each chapter is a different Tuesday's conversation, interspersed with brief vignettes about Morrie's life journey as well as Mitch's. Like The Road Less Travelled, this is spirituality literature for grown-ups.

Synopsis:

Finally available in paperback--the first runaway #1 bestseller and modern inspirational classic by the bestselling author of "The Five People You Meet in Heaven." Albom tells the story of his reconnection with his college professor and mentor, Morrie Schwartz, and their visits in the months prior to Morrie's death.

Synopsis:

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.

Along with being a sad read, Tuesdays with Morrie is a life changing book. It seriously made me think about where my life was going, how I would handle death, and it made me question my intentions. I wondered if I would be happy with my life if I died tomorrow. Have I done everything I have wanted? Have I treated everyone like I want to be treated, and lived my life with good morals? Tough questions that came about from such a good lil book!
