Con mas de 12 millones de ejemplares vendidos en todo el mundo, este es uno de aquellos libros que calan profundamente en la conciencia del lector. En la primavera de 1995, el azar se encargo de reunir de nuevo a Mitch Albom, autor de este libro, con Morrie Schwartz, quien habia sido su maestro preferido en la universidad y que padece una enfermedad terminal. He aqui el testimonio de esta entranable relacion y de las lecciones de esperanza, amor y solidaridad que Morrie le transmitio en el ocaso de su vida. Es una cronica sensible y emotiva basada en hechos reales y en la cual se traza el perfil de un hombre excepcional. Esta nueva edicion de la obra, la cual se ha convertido tambien en espanol en un verdadero suceso editorial, trae nuevamente hasta nosotros este conmovedor drama que nos invita a apreciar la vida y a reconocer las cosas verdaderamente valiosas que esta nos ofrece.
