From the Inside Flap
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.
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, and the world seemed
colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for
your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?
Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was
dying, Morrie visited with Mitch 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 a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift
with the world.
