Product Description

Book Description

'To Morrie, life was a process of opening oneself lovingly - to other people, to the world, ultimately to something larger than ourselves. To the last instant, Morrie was full of wonder and joy. The way he lived his final year was this great teacher's final lesson.' Paul Solman, from the introduction At the age of seventy-seven, sociology professor Morrie Schwartz learned that he had motor neurone disease: incurable, progressively disabling and eventually fatal. Undaunted, he embraced his illness, choosing to live as fully as possible in the time he had left. He also embarked on his greatest teaching adventure, sharing his evolving knowledge of living while dying. Previously published as Letting Go, Morrie in His Own Words offers Morrie Schwartz's remarkable philosophy. He writes with great humour and compassion, combining wise sayings, inspiring lessons and practical advice, showing that it's never too late to become the kind of person you'd like to be. This book is a magnificent legacy of love, forgiveness, transcendence and redemption - a guide to living fully to the end of your days. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

heard the taped version of morrie: in his own words by morrie schwartz . . . if you read mitch albom's best-seller tuesdays with morrie (one of the finest books i have ever read), you will now want to get hold of this--which presents the philosophies by which morrie triumphantly lived before he succumbed to lou gehrig's disease . . . here, you will get insight on such topics as "handling frustration" and "reaching acceptance" to "relating to others" and "being kind to yourself" . . . don't miss it!

After reading "Tuesdays .." I wanted to read "Morrie..", I was not disappointed. I can see why Mitch Albom wrote what he did. I read "Morrie..." while waiting for my wife to come out of a cancer operation, it helped me. Her cancer was removed, notheing further was found, and Morrie was helpful to me. Great read, under any circumstances.

A must for all human beings! A deeply moving book. Sad for us as humans because dying is sad, however, filled with much thought that can keep us going and make us much happier. I recommend this book to all. I will purchase a copy for my whole immediate family.

We can learn from one man's wisdom that he has gathered throughout his life and desires to leave us. If we all followed the principles in this book, our life would be so peaceful.

Format: Paperback
What a thoroughly inspiring book. Philsophical in nature, but non-elitist, a number of maxims emerge from the text that beg to be adopted. A truly worthwhile book; moving but without any mawkish sentimentality. To be recommended.
