A special 20th anniversary edition of the beloved international bestseller that changed millions of lives
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.
For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He reconnected with Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class:" lessons in how to live.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a memoir by American author Mitch Albom about a series of visits Albom made to his former sociology professor Morrie Schwartz, as Schwartz gradually loses his life to ALS. The book topped the New York Times Non-Fiction Bestsellers of 2000. An unabridged audiobook was also published, narrated by Albom. The appendix of the audiobook contains several minutes of excerpts from audio recordings that Albom made in his conversations with Schwartz before writing the book. A new edition with an afterword by Albom was released on the book's ten-year anniversary in 2007...
I’ve read this book several times, and every time I read this book, I find something moving my heart. The first time I read this book was when I was in an elementary school. I cried like a baby while I turned pages. Now, I’m an adult and I cannot remember how many times I’ve read this book. However, still I learn something from Morrie’s words. His words are simple, ordinary, but powerful. In this time, “Forgive not only others, but also yourself,” made me cry. I’m pretty sure that when I’m lost, I will read this book again and get kind answers from his words. 45
I found a tremendous peacefulness in these pages. My father has been declining for some time and he read the book a few years back. I wanted to be able to connect with him- as he draws many details of the book into his own life. Great read! 55
I would not care about the price of this book, I would purchase it. It is truly an amazing novel, which questions our understanding about life and death. 55
Though the book deals with a dying man, it offers you a new insight on love and living. It makes you look at life and ask yourself the real tough questions. Giving is living is so profound. Reading this has changed me.. thanks for sharing your thought Morrie! 55
It is so good I think I might die 55
I was given a list of books to read for my freshman summer reading. I picked this book after doing so research on it and thought to myself, "This will be an easy read, enough to get me a grade." But this book went far beyond anything I had expected. This was a hard hitting and emotional charged book. I absolutely love it and recommend to anyone to read, whether it be for school or for fun. 55
I read this book once out of boredom when I was very very young. I remember not being very moved. I read it again as a hard pressed miserable adult(lol) and it spoke volumes to me. Simple put I marvelous quick easy read. I've gotten plenty of people to enjoy it and my copy is well worn. 55
I really loved this book because it let accept some things in my life I had a hard time understanding. This book gave me a little bit of peace within. 55
Read this book in school and just finished it. Changed my life. Enough said. MUST READ 55
Such a great book!!! 55
Amazing book. Touching story. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 55
The book is good but you will cry alittle 55
A wonderful read about a student and his professor rekindling a long lost friendship and teaching lessons without preaching them. A short book that quickly hits home and takes you on a thought provoking roller coaster ride with each "Tuesday with Morrie." 55
I started reading Tuesdays with Morrie on Monday, the same day we were informed of my Father's brain tumors. My father decided to read it also so this wonderful book is not only touching our hearts for Morrie & Mitch's poignant story but it is also making the final & inevitable goodbye easier and more meaningful to my father, to my family and to me. Thank you, Mitch, for writing this beautiful, touching story. Morrie is most liked very proud that you have learned from all the lessons he shared with you. Anyone faced with losing someone should read this book. 55
This book touched my heart and I loved reading every bit of it! Morris Schwartz is a man I wouldn't mind meeting. 55
As a high school senior we read this book and it made me enjoy reading which is surprising 55
This book is mind blowing, writer Mitch Albom took advance check for this novel from his publisher and spent ever penny on professor's treatment. Isn't it amazing? Philosophy is GREAT.... I like the short story about waves 55
I hope students around my age can have the privilege of reading this book. It's exactly what an upcoming or recent graduate needs to read before entering adulthood. Excellent book. 55
I am so grateful to my son's senior English teacher for thus book for recommending this book. I had the distinct honor of being with my mother-in-law when she passed away 9 months ago. I feel she waited for me to be with her that night and I am so grateful I was the one to caress her face as she slowly drifted off to the next phase of her "life". I sense her presence from time to time, no quite often and I am reminded to live life to the fullest. I am excited to now go and see how many quotes my son and I found similarly important. Thank you Ms. Sims for a wonderful gift. I will be buying this book to give as gifts as I am sure all could find a gold nugget within. 55
