Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson

by Mitch Albom

It's a true story 'bout a man of great virtue and influence. Morrie Schwartz was a former college teacher who didn't know what life was about until he suffered ALS, a sickness that eats away his life day by day. Mitch (the author) is touched by Morrie's undying perception that life doesn't end when you reach your death. The framework of the story revolves around Mitch and Morrie's sessions during Tuesdays, on which Morrie shares his wisdom about life, love, marriage, friends, family, and death.

Although Morrie can hardly speak, he tries to talk to Mitch as often as he could to make him realize that he should value his life now more than ever before it's too late to turn back and do so. They always meet on Tuesdays at Morrie's house and are determined to finish their last thesis together - life. Sadly, Morrie died. But he died with a great life full of hopes and dreams.

Before I end this review, let me share you one of my favorite Morrie Schwartz' quotes:

"When you learn how to die, you learn how to live."

Rating: 5 stars - My rating for this book is 5 stars! I love the book as well as the story. It has a simple cover that shows humility and the simplicity of the story as well as the life of the person featured - Morrie Schwartz. I could say Mitch Albom has done it so well to retell the story of Morrie's Tuesday sessions.

I suggest you to read this book if you think that your life has become boring and stagnant. :)
