Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie is the story of Mitch Albom's old college professor, who is dying. He has ALS. Mitch hasn't spoken to Morrie in 16 years. He was too absorbed in his everyday life, he had almost forgotten when he caught wind of the Nightlife episode where they were interviewing Morrie. Almost 40 years ago, Mitch and Morrie wrote their first thesis together. This one, would be their last. Back in the college years, they would meet on Tuesdays to have lunch or talk. Some 20 years later, Mitch finds himself sitting in the study with his old professor every Tuesday. For a 78 year old man who had ALS, Morrie was happier than ever. He was embracing death. He wanted to make death his "final class". He was receiving letters from all over the world with people thanking him for being such an inspiration. This is a rather heartfelt book and an amazing memoir. Morrie and Mitch's final thesis is one to be remembered for many, many years. This book will help to make you feel at peace with yourself. This is one great read, I encourage everyone to pick up a copy.
