Product Description

Amazon Review

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 text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

A beautifully written book of great clarity and wisdom that lovingly captures the simplicity beyond life's complexities (M Scott Peck, author of THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED.)

This is a true story that shines and leaves you forever warmed by its afterglow (Amy Tan, author of THE JOY LUCK CLUB)

A moving tribute to embracing life. (GLASGOW HERALD)

Albom is naturally a colourful writer... Morrie Schwartz stands out as inspiring. (IRELAND SUNDAY TRIBUNE)

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.

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.

The book chronicles one man's views on life from the perspective of the dying. Gloomy? Depressing? Not one bit! Just the opposite in fact. Morrie relishes the fact that he's been given a chance to tie up the loose ends, to say all of the things that he wanted to say to the people he cares about before being snatched away. For Mitch Albom, watching Morrie go through this is a chance for him to reflect on what's important in his own life. And isn't it interesting that the things that become important to us when we're stripped of our ability to enjoy all the frivolous trappings of our society are those very simple things that actually make us human ... love, family, friendship and so on. (Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a bit of frivolous unnecessary stuff - but without the cake as a base, icing would just be ... well ... soggy sugar! )

Don't be put off by the low scoring reviewers - a few of these have missed the point of the book completely! Morrie WAS a teacher - that's what he did in life, it's what he wanted to do right up until the end of his life and it's what he hoped would be his legacy after his death. He certainly doesn't claim to be an oracle or to have all of the answers ... he just wants to tell us what he's learnt in all of his years as a teacher, a father, a husband, a son and a friend.

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.

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!
