A very inspiring read

This is a great book that really shows the benefits that can come from cultivating relationships with people who are older and wiser. In the book, Mitch becomes reacquainted with an old college professor who is dying from Lou Gehrig's disease. Each chapter of the book discusses a different meeting that Mitch had with his Professor, Morrie. In each of these meetings, Morrie discusses another important topic and what he has learned about that topic over his lifetime (ex. family). Through this narrative, you really become fortunate in that you are able to benefit from the wisdom of such a great man. In addition to obviously being highly educated, Morrie was an expert at cultivating strong relationships with people. The insights Morrrie provides, via Mitch, are things that often transcend class, gender, and race--they are things that apply almost universally.

While it is a tear jerker, I think you will learn alot from the book. I know that I certainly did!

Absolutely wonderful! This book really touched me. Mitch Albom is a writing genius!

One of my least favorite books ever. Totally sappy, predictable, and trite. Every sentence made me want to throw up. However, if you like cheesy inspirational stories you'll probably like this.

A heart tugger. A book about the bond that holds us all together, if we let it.
