Synopsis
Mitch Albom's mentor was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly 20 years ago who helped him see the world as a more profound place & gave him sound advice to help him make his way through it. Mitch became an acclaimed sports reporter & radio personality. He lost track of Morrie, but rediscovered him 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. This is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world. A sweet & gentle tribute to age & aging.
Amazon.com Review
This true story about the love between a spiritual mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters: it reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would it be like to look those people up again, tell them how much they meant to us, maybe even resume the mentorship? Plus, we meet Morrie Schwartz--a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. And finally we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility. --Gail Hudson
