Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A special 25th anniversary edition of the beloved book that has changed millions of lives with the story of an unforgettable friendship, the timeless wisdom of older generations, and healing lessons on loss and grief—featuring a new afterword by the author
 
“A wonderful book, a story of the heart told by a writer with soul.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”
 
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 his college professor Morrie Schwartz.

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. “The truth is, Mitch,” he said, “once you learn how to die, you learn 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.

    I saw the movie, and loved it. I never read the source material until now. Mitch Albom invited the world in on an exclusive meeting of a club we should all be fortunate enough to join. Two people, mutually respectful, and both dedicated to story telling. I am moved beyond measure having finally read this beautiful book, which I have appropriately finished on the first Tuesday of a brand new year. I will never forget the lesson that Mitch so eloquently shared in his words and those of his “Coach”.

    The most heartwarming, moving book I've read in a LOONNG time. The simplistic nature of both the content and the literary voice resemble a diary rather than a novel. As a reader, I grew attached to Morrie, and found many similarities between Mitch & I. wish I could experience this book again with a set of fresh eyes!

    I am not a book reader but I’ve decided since my wife had to read this book for her class so that we take the journey with her. I am a dialysis patient and I’m in the process of writing my own book. The only other book that has had the power to keep my attention other than the Bible and pull on the cord strings of my heart is Tuesdays with Morrie. I love this book. . PCE
