Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A special 25th anniversary edition of the beloved book that has changed millions of lives with the story of an unforgettable friendship, the timeless wisdom of older generations, and healing lessons on loss and grief—featuring a new afterword by the author
“A wonderful book, a story of the heart told by a writer with soul.”—Los Angeles Times
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”
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 his college professor Morrie Schwartz.

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. “The truth is, Mitch,” he said, “once you learn how to die, you learn 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.

Tuesdays with Morrie

This book is amazing! My dad was recently diagnosed with ALS! I had a friend who recommended this book to me.
I was not sure at first if I really wanted to read a story of someone else who had passed away from ALS so soon after my dads diagnosis.
I am so Blessed that I read this book when I did. My dad is still walking and talking, but it is not going to be long until he will be on oxygen.
This book has made me realize that this is going to be an amazing journey for my family.
Having known three people in my life already that has passed away from ALS I have had more of an in site to dads illnesss than the rest of my family.
Please read this book!!!!!

Life Changing

What makes this book so powerful is the magic of placing yourself in the narrator’s shoes and projecting someone in your own life with Morris’s role, I found myself thinking of my own father and loved ones throughout this entire book. What a beautiful journey this book was that I know will stay with my forever.
