From the Inside Flap
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 rediscovered 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.

End of life decisions were handled so well by Morrie, and we can all learn so much from Mitch Albom's "thesis".
Being a Buddhist, I am also intrigued with Morrie's references to Buddhism and all faiths, especially after he declared that he was an agnostic. Morrie's mind was so alert, so it was sad that his body was deteriorating. Most of all, (being a retired teacher), I reflect on the Morrie in my life, as well as hope that I am Morrie to at least one of my former students.
This book is incredible. So many gems that can mean many different things to many people, but regardless, all won’t regret ever picking up this book.
A book that'll make you want to live your life differently, with purpose, and most importantly - with love.
Awesome book though, should be on the reading list of every high school and college. Thank you Mitch for this gem! Morrie, I hope wherever you are, I hope you have room to dance, rest peacefully.
