Tuesdays with Morrie An Old Man a Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson
Author: Mitch Albom
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher. Someone older who understood you when you were young and searching, who helped you see the world as a more profound place, and gave you 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, 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.

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.

Magnificent! Everyone should be so lucky to have a "Morrie" in their life... and to recognize what a gift that is. I thank Mitch Albom for sharing this incredible human being with his readers.

What a great book! It's a quick read, so it would be easy to dismiss it as being too simplistic, but it really contains some food for thought.

Especially near the beginning, I thought the author was being a little selfish, and that the book was more about him than Morrie, but I think that this was a great way to avoid this being a preachy book that said "You should do this", "You should do that", etc. You were seeing this through Mitch Albom's eyes and seeing how what Morrie said affected Albom and the way he lived.

This deserves being read every so often as a reality-check.

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!

Loved this book. So beautifully written, you share all the emotions the author was trying to portray. Hard to put down and hard to stop thinking about long after you're through.
