This is, by far, one of the best books I have ever read. Through Albom's touching retelling of the final days of a favorite teacher and friend's life, readers are shown a magnificent picture of humanity. Moreover, I think this book teaches readers how to live--what things in life are the most important, what activities and memories are most cherished.
For anyone who has never read this book, I would strongly advise it. It gave me a new and different outlook on life.
