First Sentence
The last class of my old professor's life took place once a week in his house, by a window in the study where he could watch a small hibiscus plant shed its pink leaves. Read the first page

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN IN MY BOOK REPORT FOR SCHOOL (15 years old from Israel)
I may not read much, still, every book I have Read is simply not as good as "Tuesdays with Morrie". Its words explain the Authors feelings in such way you'd think you are the one who wrote this book, you are the one this whole book is about, and this is a description of your own feelings. If I could purchase this book for the whole World, I would, in a minute. Obviously, I recommend this book to any Person who can cope with tears, sadness and Coping with emotions and be aware of them. Saying "Tuesdays with Morrie" is beautiful is An understatement. When you read this book, your laugh, you cry and most important you learn so many new things not only about who this book describes and learning to appreciate them - but you learn about your self and you learn to appreciate your self. All in all, this book is beautiful, easy to read and Easy to understand. Anyone will enjoy if only you Open your heart and you are willing to receive a gift you Will not get - anywhere else.

One of the most inspiring books I have ever read. This book is an experience, a journey, a gem. I would share this gift of enlightenment with everyone I care about. This is a book to be shared with special people. The experience of this story opens doors of acceptance, love, humility and the possibilities of changing what seems to be the most unchangable in ourselves, our lives, our relationships. Reading this book and absorbing its messages is a living and growing experience. You will read it. You will feel it. You will grow and change. You will laugh and cry. You will let go and you will hold on. And then you will read it again.

This is a completely heart-rendering, touching and genuine piece of work which has you laughing, crying and thinking about life, death and the world today. It is written about an old professor (Morrie) who knows he is dying and is telling people about what this unusual situation feels like. The author is an old student of his who has 'fallen by the way', choosing the very hectic modern life many people now take as normal. It is of course a true story which makes it all the more poignant and hard-hitting. I thoroughly recommend that you read this. Once you pick it up you cannot put it down.

It is a quite simple story, but yet a life's philosophy. Morrie's story has touched me deeply and made me see life from a different perspective. Embrace life fully and live every moment as it is given to you or as Morrie has put it: "Devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Park on 25 May 2010
Format: Paperback
Does this short novella live up to the hype it generated? Well, yes and no. The lessons were good, but not always great. As with any general philosophy, it hits and misses depending on your individual circumstance. The pursuit of a money in a career does not gain you fulfillment? Sure, I'll buy into that one, but for the millions of workless people around the world it's a bitter irrelevance. The importance of getting married? Sure, that may make sense but not at the expense of abusive relationships and what about the increasing number of single people in the world? Are they condemned as a result?
Perhaps the most telling lesson was the idea of the little bird on your shoulder asking you if today is your day to die. It sounds morose, but it does help you make choices that veer you away from exploiting your fellow human beings - and that is a lesson well worth all of us learning.

Format: Paperback
Life is short so it is up to us to make it sweet. Of course the book is not going to start any revolutions anywhere, but for people caught up in the madness of daily modern existence, this is a timely reminder of what characterizes real success and accomplishment in our over materialistic and superficial lives.
Every Brandeis graduate should read this book :-)

Format: Paperback
Tuesdays at Morrie's is an incredible book about how everything in life matters: An old professor - Morrie - knows that he will be dying, but instead of pitying himself, he is sharing everything that is important to him until the last minute. He talks with a former student of his about different themes of life and how he approaches them. Sharing his knowledge makes a huge difference in a lot of people's lifes.
It reminded me of "Working on yourself doesn't work" from Ariel and Shya Kane. A great book about going for your life with totality and excellence, but without fixing yourself. I know it sounds like a paradox, but this books gives you the tools how to have a magnificent life: day in and day out. I highly recommend it!

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Aug 2004
Format: Audio CD
Professor Morrie Schwartz is the mentor we would all like to have. Often we fail to seek out such a mentor because we feel inadequate or not worthy enough. If so, you will identify with Mitch Albom who seeks out his teacher's wisdom for the final time in this book. His fumbling should reassure even the most inhibited person to reach out for this kind of connection. That's the hidden beauty of this book, as Professor Schwartz's goodness shines through the narrowness of Mr. Albom's life.
This wonderful book focuses on the meaning of life, from the perspective of a teacher (Morrie Schwartz) who is about to lose his life and his pupil, (Mitch Albom) who has lost his focus on what is important. They come together for 14 Tuesdays (just like they did while the author was a college student at Brandeis) before the professor passes away of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
This book is filed with the most beautiful sayings you can imagine. Here are a few examples: 'Giving to other people is what makes us feel alive.' 'Love each other or perish.' 'Everybody knows they are going to die, but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently.' 'Learn to detach from experience.'
Many people would avoid a book on this subject, because they do not want to think about death. Although Morrie Schwartz is dying throughout this book, the subject is really about living rather than dying. Few will find the dying to be distressing, even though it is graphically and frequently addressed.
For those of us with many years to live, this book can be a wake-up call to start really living now -- in the ways we would if we were about to die, as well as to learn how to treat others while we still have them with us.
