Review of Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Of all the books that I love, “Tuesdays with Morrie” written by Mitch Albom is the number one in my list. I am so proud of myself for finishing this book. Reading “Tuesdays with Morrie” brought a different perspective to me  about the world, death, regrets, forgiveness, family, love, aging, money, marriage, culture and so on. A powerful and compelling story that revolves around the teaching of an old and dying professor, Morrie Schwartz, to his student, Mitch Albom .

After graduating from college, Mitch Albom got so busy with his life that he did not keep anymore his promise to his professor that he would keep in touch. After his uncle died of pancreatic cancer, he became so engrossed with his career and ambitions as if those were the only things that really mattered. He wanted to achieve all his ambitions before his time. It made him work very hard just like a machine.

But then, a sudden change takes place when he saw his professor on air revealing to the mass media that he was about to die.  This made Mitch Albom to rekindle the friendship he had with his professor. Since there was only a little time left for Morrie Schwartz, Mitch Albom decided to spend his time with the professor every Tuesday. It was like attending once again to Morrie’s class. The only difference was that the learning was not based on books anymore but on real life.

This book is not just an ordinary story between a good and inspiring teacher and his student. To say that this book is amazing is an understatement.  I really love the way how Morrie Schwartz unselfishly gave all that he can offer to the persons he would be leaving soon.  This is the book that made me cry and left me wishing to meet more Morrie’s in this life. I’ve been challenged with each topic that Morrie and Mitch discussed. It was as if Morrie was the one speaking to me and giving me pieces of advice. As I turned each page of the book, I gathered insightful wisdom that I will carry with me all my life.

    I remember reading this and feeling a heavy sense of obligation to appreciate what I’ve got. It’s been several years now and I can’t recall exactly what the story is but you’re right it was profound especially at the time I read it. I must give it a read again to refresh my memory. I have so many books that have made an impact. Off the top of my head A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Last Convertible and The Outsiders were a few that touched me deeply.

  3. I love this book also! Sadly, I lost my own copy because a former officemate borrowed it and failed to return it. This is also one of my favorite books to give to my friends who like to read.

    For me, one of my favorite books is You Were Born for a God-sized Dream by Holley Gerth.

    For me, I have two books that influenced me were Paano Ba To and Big Magic. Those two bring two different realities and weave them together to guide lost souls like me to the right path. It gave such a big impact in my life that it truly gave me ideas on how to move forward with life and plan on living. It’s hard at first but it will eventually fall into place when the time has come or when you truly have defined your path in life.
