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": the 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.
"I met Morried in the last months of his life. To be with him was a gift of love and insight, courage and generosity. Mitch Albom has shared this boon with us in Tuesdays With Morrie. Don't wait until Wednesday to draw this fine being into your heart." - Stephen Levine, author of Healing Into Life And Death.
Tuesdays With Morrie is a sweet and gentle tribute to age and aging. Thanks, Mitch Albom, for introducing me to Morrie Schwartz. His dignity and frankness stirred me. His good humor and zest left me smiling." - Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here.
"Two books to read that illumine the ideas of transfiguration and love are 'Tuesday's With Morrie' and Nicholas Sparks' 'The Notebook.' Two fine books on the enduring power of relationships to bring about transformation and healing." - Bill Westmoreland, Cincinnati, OH (Comments and questions to him at firstname.lastname@example.org )
