Tuesdays with Morrie: 10th Anniversary Edition | [Mitch Albom]

Tuesdays with Morrie: 10th Anniversary Edition

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 20 years ago.

Publisher's Summary

It's been 10 years since Mitch Albom first shared the wisdom of Morrie Schwartz with the world. Now, 12 million copies later, in a new foreword, Mitch Albom reflects again on the meaning of Morrie's life lessons and the gentle, irrevocable impact of their Tuesday sessions all those years ago.

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 20 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.

    "Really meaninful stuff."

    This book made me think about my own mortallity. What is life really about? Who are really our friends? Will they care when we're gone? It's a book that should be taught at the high school level. So that people start with the end in mind. It made me almost cry when at the end of the book Morrie speaks. Great Book

    "Blown away by his grace"

    Simple, but powerful. Whenever I thought one of Maury's stories would go nowhere, he would deliver the final message. Each time, I was blown away by his grace under such sad circumstances. Mitch Albom was a great reader.

    "Excellent Story"

    I read the book years ago and remembered being very touched by the story. Now listening to it is like reliving the experience. When you think that it is a real story it moves you even more. Spectacular message, lovely tone and just a good way to spend some time during the day. I can recommend the book or the audiobook to anyone.

    "Wonderful Story, Full of Heart and Insight"

    The lessons Morrie teaches are valuable, touching, and speak the truth. What a wonderful piece of non-fiction!

    Story
    "Hasn't This All Been Said Before?"

    It's hard not to give this a 5-star review. And, in full disclosure, I must admit that I cried for the first part of the book. But I think that had to do with the fact that I was facing a diagnosis that would have been a death sentence. When I got a temporary reprieve, the book just started feeling trite, redundant, and Mitch's place in it felt overblown and melodramatic. And like something I'd heard many, many people say before. Mitch pulls a couple of hangdog lines, feels like a jerk, and Morrie has to lift him up. I mean, for Heaven's sake!
    But I love Morrie! And what the conversations don't bear out, is fully carried by the way he lived his last days. We should all be so lucky, so blessed, so spiritually developed to face our final days, and illnesses, with such dignity, grace, and humor. If the spirit of his words were lacking in wisdom, his actual actions definitely were not. A good read, a good listen, but I think you have to be there.

    "i didnt understand how it got such a good reviews"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    i heard about this book, read the review and then i listened to it.i was so disappointed. almost all of the book is about how mitch felt and what he did. what about the wisdom of morrie ? more then half of the book is something like: on the second meeting we talk about life. on the third meeting we talked about friendship. great ! but, what did he said ? most of the time, mitch just say what was the topic of the meeting and thats it.


    Has Tuesdays with Morrie turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does Mitch Albom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    nothing at all


    What else would you have wanted to know about Mitch Albom’s life?

    nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    so disappointing...

    "AN ABSOLUTE TREASURE"

    I finished this book a week ago, and I cannot stop thinking about it. The story is so moving. This is a must-listen book--far better listened to than read because the author is the narrator and reads it with the inflections and emotions he feels. At the end of the book, I was delighted to hear some of the actual recordings of Morrie and Mitch's dialogue. The book transcends time and generations. Anyone who has ever had a good teacher, coach, mentor, advocate while growing up will love this book. Awesome listen.
