Tuesdays with Morrie: an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson
Mitch Albom

This is the true story of a professor, Morrie Schwartz, who is dying from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). A former student, Mitch Albom, learns about his condition and visits Morrie every Tuesday and writes Morrie’s final words. This book discusses his philosophy concerning living, dying and death. This book showed me how to appreciate my family, life and the simple things in life. Most of all it taught me how to forgive myself and others. The book deeply touched my heart. It is easy to read and helps give a new look on life. This is a simple book with simple messages.
