"This is a sweet book of a man's love for his mentor. It has a stubborn honesty that nourishes the living."
--Robert Bly, author of Iron John
"A deeply moving account of courage and wisdom, shared by an inveterate mentor looking into the multitextured face of his own death. There is much to be learned by sitting in on this final class."
--Jon Kabat-Zinn, coauthor of Everyday Blessings and Wherever You Go, There You Are
"All of the saints and Buddhas have taught us that wisdom and compassion are one. Now along comes Morrie, who makes it perfectly plain. His living and dying show us the way."
--Joanna Bull, Founder and Executive Director of Gilda's Club

In his professional life he is increasingly aware that eh chases the wrong thing – celebrities who do not have much to offer but boredom and emptiness. He establishes a relationship with Morrie again and they agree to meet each Tuesday to discuss the lessons of life. Morrie did not have – on the outside – a very happy childhood. His father was cold and distant so Morrie tries to be the very opposite. In their meetings Mitch comes to realize that the wrong values are stressed in our society – there is a focus on greed, egotism and shallowness. Morrie learns to accept death and aging as the eternal cycle of life.
Obviously, the book touches on many topics that are relevant to each and every reader. As a living example Morries learns to accept that life has to come to an end and one’s happiness does not depend on material goods. A simple lesson but some we all need to be reminded again and again because it is way too easy top fall into the traps society sets up for us.
It is an easy book to read and highly recommendable for readers of all ages.
No, it's not exactly so bad, but it comes close. Morrie Schwartz was unquestionably an inspirational force in the world and owner of a good sense of humor. Unfortunately, the heavy hand of Mitch made the book nearly unbearable. His memories of Morrie as a teacher always seem less about his mentor and more about young Mitch: how much promise he showed, how much Morrie liked him, how impressed his parents were, and on. Though full of self reproach for his consumerism-driven jet-setting ways after college, Mitch never seems sincere. As he chronicles Morrie's last weeks on earth he focuses more on his own metamorphis, his new view of life through Morrie's impending death -- and not without a bit of self-congratulation.
Through this sticky Mitch film Morrie shines through, but it's hardly worth it. Order the Nightline specials, or read Morrie's own book.
This book might as easily have been called "The Personal Epiphanies of Mitch Albom, Sucessful Sportswriter."
