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.
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. . .

Ugh, and I mean that about the tear jerker! Had to read through the tears but so are most beautifully written and inspiring stories. Amazing how words can really pull on the heart strings. Wonderful book.
This book pulls on your heart strings and left me in tears. The story of a student and his dying teacher touches your heart because of all the wisdom the dying man has. Its a beautiful story and one I would put on my to read list
This has to be my all-time favourite book. As a long-time fan of Mitch Albom, this book will tug at readers' heartstrings. I will admit I cried a few times reading this book because of the pure elegance that Mitch Albom wrote with in dealing with such a heartbreaking disease, especially with someone who he admires so much. This book is a true life-changer and will make you appreciate the simple things.
In short without giving the story away, this gripping book is about a man who attends university, goes on throught life only to learn a very important "mentor" professor is dieing. He wants to spend time with him and is amazed to learn alot more about the professor he never would of had the chance if not for their Tuesdays!
