Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

Spread the love

Stars: *****

This book was read for the 2nds Challenge.


Mitch Albom began visiting his old college professor Morrie Schwartz after seeing him on ABC’s “Nightline” talking about his fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. One Tuesday visit turned into another, resulting in a “final class” between professor and student in what you learn about life once you truly prepare to die.

Wow! Now I know why everyone has made such a big deal about this book. The 5 People You Meet in Heaven was good but this was even better. I got it from the library but will be getting my own copy to refer back to. I think this would have made a good gift to my Father-in-Law who recently passed.

It is highly recommend. I love the way it is set up, since he was being “taught” by his former teacher some chapters are titled something to do with school/classes. The Curriculum, The Classroom, Taking Attendance. Also each chapter on the Tuesday visits is about a separate subject. This is a book everyone should read.
