For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. — Maybe, like Mitch, yo...  more »

I read this book because I wanted to know what all the hubbub was about. Reading this book brought out many emotions. Morrie's message really got to me. It's never too late to let someone know that you love him or her. Be compassionate! I can't decide whether or not I thought this book was as good as so many people have claimed it was, but I can say that I was very touched by it, as I know many people were. This book brought me to tears. I understand its popularity now that I've read it.

This is the only book that I read every few years and have kept in my permanent library. It is a great reminder of what is important in life and when I am down, it continues to remind me how lucky I am to have my health and that people around me that I care about are healthy as well. It has important life lessons and I have given this book as a gift to many people over the years. It puts a very personal look on disease. The cover of the book describes the story best "an old man, a young man, and life's greatest lesson."

Morrie Schwartz left an incredible gift for people everywhere in Tuesdays with Morrie. This book is the gem readers don't realize they are searching for as they trudge through mediocre works; the book that reminds us how powerful literature can be. Through the magic of words, Morrie's spirit lives on after his death. He gently reminds the reader that humans tend to become mired in material pursuits that never please us, but we don't realize this until it's too late.

Few books have ever brought me to tears, but as Morrie succumbed to his disease, I felt like I was losing a dear friend along with Albom. I was not a big fan of Albom's second release, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and had difficulty relating to the inner turmoil of the characters. Conversely, Morrie Schwartz inspired something in Albom that enabled him to create a treasure that truly commemorates a great man.

Wow, what an incredible story! So touching. The stuff of what life is really about. I was SO moved by Albom's narrative and the creative way he laid out the story of his relationship with his mentor professor in the last weeks of his life. Full of poignant moments, wisdom and humor. Recommend to everyone for so many reasons!
