THUESDAY WITH MORRIE : AN OLD MAN, A YOUNG MAN, AND LIFE'S GREATEST LESSION (Paperback) Price: Rs.165

Every individual has a mentor - someone they look up to, someone whose reflections stick with them as they move on with their lives. Morrie Schwartz was Mitch Albom’s mentor, as Mitch spent a significant amount of time with Morrie every Tuesday, a routine that brought about an unconscious difference in Mitch’s life.

After 16 years, Mitch moves ahead with his life and Morrie’s insights slowly fade away over time. With a scheme to find answers to questions that have been haunting him for a very long time, Mitch Albom sets off in search of Morrie Schwartz, his long lost alliance.

Albom finally succeeds in finding his mentor, but to his dismay, finds out that Morrie is living through the last days of his life. Morrie is critically ill and afflicted with ALS, a motor neuron disease. Mitch decides to make the most of his rendezvous and recreates the past by meeting him every Tuesday evening. In Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man And The World’s Greatest Lesson, Mitch shares the wise words that Morrie had for him during his last days.

Oprah Winfrey adapted this book as a TV show starring Hank Azaria and Jack Lemmon in the year 1999. The show went on to become a hit, receiving four Emmy Awards. An Off Broadway play was also produced in the fall of 2001, co-authored by Jeffrey Hatcher and Albom.

Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, A Young Man And The World’s Greatest Lesson was first published in the year 1997. This edition of the book was published in 1998. In October 1997, the book entered the New York Times bestsellers list and reached the top of the list six months later. Judged as a bestselling memoir, the book remained on the bestsellers list for a period of 205 weeks.

About the Author
Mitch Albom writes for the Detroit Free Press, and has been voted America's No. 1 sports columnist ten times by the Associated Press Sports Editors. Albom, a former professional musician, hosts a syndicated daily radio show and appears regularly on ESPN's The Sports Reporters. He is the author of Bo and Fab Five, both national bestsellers, and has also published four collections of his columns. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Michigan.

An emotional roller coaster..A unique experience..Must read.. :)

As the cover rightly states, Tuesdays with Morrie is a book about an old man, a young man and life's greatest lesson.

Morrie Schwartz was no super hero, no celebrity either rather he was a
"small man who takes small steps, as if a strong wind could, at any time, whisk him up into the clouds", who had been a Professor when the author Mitch Albom was a student at the Brandeis University.
Then the question arises, what was it about him that made Mitch think that he was worth writing a book about?

The answer to that question is that he didn't think any such thing. Morrie's only claim to fame had been an appearance on a show called Nightline and it was through this that Mitch came to know that his old professor whom he had not met for some twenty years was dying of ALS. It saddened Mitch and he decided to meet him. What was initially a reunion of an old professor and his student became a final lesson on life's complexities.

I was touched by Morrie and his optimistic approach towards life. He was brave, lively, sensitive, compassionate and someone who knew how to break life's complexities into simple steps.
Morrie had been a grandparent, a teacher, a colleague, a friend. He had been someone who could listen patiently to all that you had to say without passing judgement. He made you see the world as a more profound place, and guided you whenever you faltered. "You" here being all his students especially Mitch and all the people who came to him. But most importantly he was someone who was dying and therefore had become more interesting to people.In his own words,

"People see me as a bridge. I'm not as alive as I used to be, but I'm not yet dead. I'm sort of... in-between."
"I'm on the last great journey here - and people want me to tell them what to pack."

His appearances on TV where his way of reaching out to people all over the world and giving them hope.
His mantra "When you learn how to die, you learn how to live." was something that he wanted people to know. Morrie was a brave man, a compassionate man who knew the value of time and even in his last moments chose to make himself an example where others could see and take his lead to live fully even in the face of death like he was doing.

Mitch and Morrie subsequently spent the next sixteen Tuesdays together exploring many of life's fundamental issues like Death, fear, aging, greed, marriage,family, forgiveness,society,a meaningful life. Morrie was giving his last lecture while Mitch was writing his final thesis. Even when dying Morrie was imparting his wisdom to people around him. He was truly "A Teacher to the Last".

Mitch has captured Morrie's deteriorating condition, his courage and his zest to life in a simple yet captivating way. The reader feels myriad emotions while reading the book from happiness to acute sorrow, from evaluating one's own life to planning the future on Morrie's principles.
The scene that specially stuck with me was the one where Morrie tells Mitch about the place where he has planned to be buried and asks him to visit, telling him to make it a tuesday as they are "Tuesday people".
As for talking, he has a simple solution for Mitch

"After I'm dead, you talk. And I'll listen."

The final class with Morrie changed Mitch and as he says
"I look back sometimes at the person I was before I rediscovered my old professor. I want to talk to that person. I want to tell him what to look out for, what mistakes to avoid. I want to tell him to be more open, to ignore the lure of advertised values, to pay attention when you loved ones are speaking, as if it were the last time you might hear them."

He also accepts that he cannot "undo" the past but one thing that he learned from his professor was that there is no such thing as "too late" in life. Morrie was changing until the day he said good bye!!
The book left me wiping my tears and left me with an acute sense loss and of re-evaluation of my life. The things that we take for granted like a normal day was something that had become just wishful thinking for someone like Morrie who could not even wriggle his toes at his will!

Life is short, make the most of it.

The book, Tuesdays with Morrie deserves a 5 out of 5 and Morrie is someone who will always remain in the memories of thousands of people to whom he gave hope and introduced them to a path of happiness and contentment. I respect him and hope his message reaches far and wide. Do read the book for Morrie's class is a success!!

Introspection is the word

I cannot say why I picked up this particular book but I did it. I hadn't expected philosophy and I hadn't ever expected that I would endure so many aphorisms, being a person who despised reading preachy stuff. But, somehow I enjoyed reading it even though some parts of it were long, boring and written in bad taste.

I can see the book targets the larger audience of today's world where people are as lost as objects in the sea bobbing up and down, for some direction. Miraculously, the books manages to cover many of the main dilemmas that people brood over - Love, Relationships, Money, Career, Death, Suffering yada yada.

I would say I sort of like this book only because some of the points that are mentioned in the book goes in tune with what I already believe in. Plus, the bond between the professor and his student really touched me.It is indeed difficult to find a teacher who can touch your heart, who can actually teach something of consequence - something that you will remember all your life.

Hats off to Morrie for being such a teacher, for his undying spirit. for his courage and for touching so many hearts and giving some of them a sense of direction when all might seem lost !

An amazing philosophical novel that can change a life

This philosophical novel has proved to be an amazing one. I was spellbound when I was just done reading the last page of it. This book is about a dying man named Morrie Schwartz suffering from ALS a deadly disease, imparting his realization about the meaning of life and death to his former student, the author of this book, Mitch Albom. The excellence of his thoughts made me search on internet who this Morrie Schwartz actually was and I found a series of videos on Youtube, named Morrie: Lessons On Living (with Ted Koppel), which is actually a DVD published by ABC TV's 'Nightline' of New York.

Every page of this novel has some words of wisdom to impart. If one can concentrate on them and be able to get into the deep of what they mean it can change the way of seeing our lives. As I was proceeding with the book happiness seemed to be so natural thing to avail.

Wish to read this over and over again.

Teaches you a meaningful life

In this modern lifestyle of hustle and bustle, Tuesdays With Morrie teaches how to live a meaningful life. Marriage, relationships, money, children, gratitude, society, etc.
A self-help book teaching you how lead a peaceful life by devoting time for your family, community and self. The lessons are taught through the professor Morrie, who in his last days on the bed, instead of spending time only for himself, takes the effort in time for others and works with the author for his last thesis. One of the lines by Morrie, "If you are trying to show off to the people on top, forget it, they will look down on you anyhow. If you are trying to show off to the people at the bottom, forget it, they will envy you anyhow. Only an open heart will float you among everyone."

Sensational Stuff

Really a great narration with past & present screenplay. Each chapter ends with a moral. Very Touching & Close to every body's life. Must buy for those who have sick patient in home.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

It’s been ten years since Mitch Albom first shared the wisdom of Morrie Schwartz with the world. Now–twelve million copies later–in a new afterword, Mitch Albom reflects again on the meaning of Morrie’s life lessons and the gentle, irrevocable impact of their Tuesday sessions all those years ago. . .

Must Read!

I was speechless when for the first time I went through the book. The university prof. has his own way of observing things which is so broadening and so refreshing. Now I can't remember how many times i have read this book ( not necessarily only on Tuesdays :) )but trust me I always find the same excitement, same delight. Mitch Albom has brought his loving teacher to interact with us so that we can learn the profound meaning of life and in the process Mitch himself becomes a prolific writer!

A bible to tide you over rought and stormy weather

I read this book in the year 2008. A neighbor who felt no need for it, passed it down to me. This book is a must-read and I have referred it too whoever has been going through a tough time in life. It helps you decide what you really wants and answers many questions we all tend to have, about life and living in general. Read it, it might not be as exciting and fast paced as your Fifty Shades, but speaks to your soul and touches you deep inside. It makes you cry and smile, sometimes all at the same time.

I have read it, gifted it and referred it since the time I came to know about it.
