Publisher's Summary

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, and 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. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying of ALS, or motor neurone disease, Morrie visited 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. This is a chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

    "How to live... and how to die"

    A brilliant story with such feeling. Mitch, you are inspirational.
    Tuesdays with Morrie was given to me as a book by a now dear departed friend. Means so much more.
    Great

    "Beau-ti-ful Story!!"

    As soon as I purchased it, I started listening, and enjoyed each and every minute of it.
    In my opinion, it is extremely well written and on the top of that the narration is outstanding, too.
    It is great to listen to the story narrated by the author, and he reads the book beautfully.

    This is a true story which makes the book even more special, I think.
    Thought provoking, inspiring and the author makes you laugh here and there as well.
    I hope you enjoy the book just as much as I did, if you decide to get it.

    "Pragmatic words on difficult issues"

    Living and dying well provide many challenges that continue to baffle us. "Tuesdays with Morrie" gives some stimulating insights through the recounting of conversations between Mitch and his old college teacher Morrie as Morrie dies of Lou Gerig's disease. The book broaches difficult topics without unbelievable hype or off-putting sentimentality. It is a great listen.

    "The life and death of a true teacher"

    Through Mitch Albom's words we meet a wonderful man and teacher, Morrie Schwartz, whose attitude towards life and his rapidly approaching death is inspiring.

    Hearing Morrie and Mitch chat at the end of book really brings their relationship and Morrie himself to life

    This story will have you thinking about your own life. Inspiring and thought provoking. You will not resist feeling sorry for Morrie yet you know he had a wonderfully full and exciting life. A tear will be shed.

    "tuesdays with Morrie"

    If my friend asked if she could borrow this book I would say no. I wouldn't even make excuses of feel guilty about it. I would rush online and buy her a copy to be sent as a random, but not truly altruistic, present. We both need our own copies, for this is a book to return to time and time again. This is no "I've read it, what's next?" book. This true story reminds me not only why I read but also why every 60 seconds of every minute is precious.  An old college professor (Morrie) is dying of an incurable condition. In his final months a former student (Mitch) reaches out to him and they rekindle what was once a very profound relationship. We learn about Morrie's highly respected life before he got sick and how Mitch has been living in the fast lane, yet has seemingly lost his way. Despite promises Mitch hasn't kept in touch. He heard about Morrie's illness on TV. When Mitch loses his job he has the gift of time; that he chooses to spend this with his old ‘coach' for who time is so limited offers one of this book's profound teachings. We don't always appreciate the simple things in life. Mitch and Morrie settle into an old pattern of spending Tuesday's together in class. This time the classroom is Morrie's front room and the subject is The Meaning of life. The book flows effortlessly; it is almost poetic. Once we have settled into it, each chapter represents another Tuesday, and another lesson: "The tenth Tuesday we talk about Marriage." In some respects it is reminiscent of Kahlil Gibran's ‘The Prophet'. But this is a dialogue, not just with a wise man, but with a man acutely facing his own mortality. Morrie's gift is that he sees hims lucky; he sees opportunity when others would only see sadness. His learning has never stopped. Mitch too seems lucky as he has a second chance. ponder. If you want to explore what's important to a brave man, at the end of life's long journey, I urge you to read this book. Just don't go lending it to anyone.

    I love this book and the narrator's performance was great. I also like that there is an attached records at the end of last chapter. This book will make you look at 'life' from different angle. And as my title said 'it's life changing'. MUST READ (in this case listen :))

    "Hmmmmm"

    Selected on the back of the great reviews and as someone who likes to learn in life, improve myself and others around me, I thought it would be a great choice.

    I'm sort of left a bit perplexed. For sure it was someone's experience and story but I felt something was missing- whether it was he structure of the chapters I don't know, but felt it could have been laid out better with "life's lessons"
    The only take away I can see are;
    - death comes to all, enjoy what you have
    - don't live in the past

    Wanted to enjoy it more but felt something was missing.

    This was our book club book of the month. I joined the book club to be introduced to books like this, ones would never have read if left to my own devices. Nice story packed with lessons for life. Nice live audio from the subject at the end.

    "An insight into a beautiful friendship"

    This is an intimate portrait of a truly beautiful friendship. You will learn many life lessons by reading/listening to this book but you'll also be given privileged access to the growth of a relationship that may leave you feeling a little envious. We all need a Morrie, and a Mitch, in our lives!

    This is read by the author which adds real character for the listener. It imparts wisdow, love and humour...just wonderful.

    Nothing but truth from a wise man who chose to see his tragic illness with positivity and love. The lessons he shares aren't quick-fix, but are timeless. if you're looking for answers or happiness in our difficult modern lives you owe it to yourself to listen and to remember that
    ultimately, love is the only rational act

    When the author dictates it, it felt strangely self serving as he stressed how much Morrie loved the author and this project... Hard to explain but I'd rather reread this book than listen to it again...

    Liked the words of Morrie but found the author's own side of it a bit annoying. Still, interesting read.
