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, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying of ALS – or motor neurone disease – Mitch visited Morrie 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.


Tuesdays with Morrie is the first inspirational book I’ve read from Mitch Albom. I am always into suspense/thriller books so me reading this book is a surprise. After reading the book, I became one of Albom’s fans.

This is a very inspiring book. It taught me life’s greatest lesson, a lesson on ‘how to live your life’. While I was reading the story, one question crossed my mind, “Am I ready to die?” No one wanted to die ofcourse. But death is inevitable. People grow old and soon will die. But we are just too afraid to think about it.

What I like about the author is that he uses simple English terms that are very easy to understand. To tell you honestly, there’s no part of the book that was boring. Every line tells a story that I can’t dare to skip.

I easily get bored so I always opt for suspense/thrillers books. I am just glad I came out of my comfort zone and tried this story. Very inspirational and well written.

This book is some sort of a reflection. It has many lessons about life that all of us should learn. I highly recommend this to everyone especially to the youth, to people who lost their hopes and those who felt like dying.

“Dying is just the end of life and not a relationship!”
