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? Plus, 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. And 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 the Hardcover edition.

This is a simple book with simple messages.
Live fully and in the moment. Treat others with respect, kindness, love, and dignity. Seek joy.
However, these messages are easily lost given the constantly increasing pressures we all face. This book is a guide to a way that you can live your life where you'll be able to look back at the end and feel peace and contentment.
I've given copies of this book to many people that I know. I encourage you to read this book and do so with an open mind and heart.
For those interested in other stories about ALS, More Time to Love, by Joseph Wions, may be of interest. While Morrie and Joe offer some similar insights with regard to positive thinking and acceptance, More Time To Love is a story about transformation and emotional and psychological triumph, defying conventional wisdom, refusing to accept ALS as a death sentence, and searching for effective non-conventional treatment. Joe lived with ALS for over a decade, 3 times as long as doctor's gave him.
