A beautifully written book of great clarity and wisdom that lovingly captures the simplicity beyond life's complexities
This true story about the love between a spiritual mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters, it reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would it be like to look those people up again, tell them how much they meant to us, maybe even resume the mentorship? And we meet Morrie Schwartz--a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. Finally, we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility. --Gail Hudson
This is a true story that shines and leaves you forever warmed by its afterglow
A moving tribute to embracing life.
Albom is naturally a colourful writer... Morrie Schwartz stands out as inspiring.

This book is a true story between Mitch Albom and his teacher/coach. A coach who teaches him the meaning of life and Mitch Albom has done greatness to his coach by living his words of being helpful to others by writing the book to help us.
A self-help book but it doesn't sound like one, it doesn't instruct(which has been happening in a lot of self-help books) but tells us what needs to be put in practice to live a better life. It's can be a story for few and it can be a guide to life for few.
I only had a thought of reading this book to my child repeatedly and I would suggest every parent to do so. Parenting is getting difficult with kids getting exposed to technology but books like these will help a child a lot more than talking to them and making them understand our thoughts and action.
Very few books have a strong power to rule our thoughts and this book has great power. After reading this book I really appreciate everything around me and I don't regret much. My life has a new perspective and I feel responsible.
It's never too late. Thanks to the author for this great book.
Language is simple and can be comprehended by everyone. You cannot put the book down until you reach the end of it and literally mourn with the author because you realise Morrie was not just Mitch's teacher but has become yours too.
This book is too good to be missed. It is really an all time hit.
So I read "tuesdays with Morrie". This is without a doubt a great self help book and the way the whole narration is done, it feels like you are part of the whole conversation between Morrie and Mitch.
Morrie tries to answer some of the life's biggest questions most of us face at some point in our life. Morrie gives a great message by the way he embraces and enjoys the last phase of his life.
Great book, a must read...
Completed this book by mitch albom and I was totally awestruck by the plot. Best for the people who love to gain inspiration in their life through some teachings. In this book Morrie the professor teaches his student Morrie about the fears of his life and to how to not make them inferior and keeping in ming that they are not inferior in any way. In this whole book Morrie sees death as a beautiful chapter in his life and how he overcomes this chapter is beautifully intricated in this book.
"If you are afraid to die, you are afraid to love" - Morrie Schwartz.
Happy reading :)
Listening from a man who is about to leave has to be the life greatest lesson as the man will have a pure perspective of this world.
A must read for all....
I am just giving it four stars because of the price and paper issue. Otherwise, I enjoyed reading it. Go for it.
