Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s the 20th-anniversary edition of the bestselling Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson by
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. Or maybe they instilled in you peacefulness by way of their homespun advice and wisdom.
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 reconnected with 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 chronicles their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift with the world. This book was very meaningful to me as I previously read it while in my mid-twenties as a caretaker to my grandmother, a dementia patient.
This book is a must-read no matter what walk of life you come from.
