'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.

I have read a few books about Morrie and I found them to be
always interesting. Easy to read and thought provoking.
