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!

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.
by Random House,
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.
