TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Award-winning sportswriter Albom was a student at Brandeis University, some two decades ago, of sociologist Morrie Schwartz. Here Albom recounts how, recently, as the old man was dying, he renewed his warm relationship with his revered mentor.

Review: Tuesdays with Morrie

Editorial Review -

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.

I love this book. I recommend everyone to read it. Its mostly available in every language. I cried at the end, it was very moving. You could learn a lot from this book. Once you go deep into the book, it feels like you can imagine and also feel what Mitch and Morrie are going through. As a person who doesn't like reading, this is an amazing book for everyone to read.

I generally don't read books - most of my working day is spent reading stuff - so it's rare for me to read even one in a year. I read "Tuesdays" while on vacation this past summer (July 2013). Since almost everyone should expect to die, this isn't a bad way to start thinking about it. The single best idea was Morrie's decision to have a "living funeral". Brilliant! Read the book and you won't feel so bad about dying....someday.

Is this book over-rated? I don't know. I don't find the life lessons applicable to me in particular. Maybe I'm still to young. This does not mean that I don't like the book. I deeply admire Morrie, just like any one else, and I really like Mitch Albom's tone of voice - very reflective, very delicate, very serene. And I hope I could find a mentor like Morrie some day. This is a good book, the morals in it are deep, it just failed to touch me in the heart somehow. [April-May, 2013]

One of the BEST books I've ever read. This story teaches great life lessons and makes us fall in love with Morrie, making us want to be more like him. I would recommend this book to high-school students and up, but also for mature 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

This Book has opened my eyes
This is the greatest book I have ever read. This book has changed the way I think about my life and the world. I need to live my life more like Morrie. He is my role model.
