A true story of the meaning of life put into 192 pages might seem unimaginable, but Mitch Albom does it all. Telling his story about a teacher who changed his life by showing him the true reasons we were put here, and the things we should cherish. Albom starts as an average journalist to find that his favorite college professor is dying. He travels many miles and meets with his old teacher every Tuesday, and Morrie, his old professor teaches him new things about life, and what we should really look for. Mitch realizes how much better his life is with all the help from Morrie, and becomes a better person. Its a heart warming, book that gives us all a lesson in the end.

How would you feel if you knew you were dying? Mitch Albom tells a true story of Morrie Schwartz who is dying of ALS. A brave man with a positive view of life, Morrie believes one cannot learn how to live unless one knows how to die. One of his students from long ago learns of Morrie's situation and begins to visit Morrie. Morrie, once again, teaches his former student, Mitch Albom, this time inspiring Albom with life's final lesson.
This otherwise inspiring true story is, I think, somewhat disappointing because the man learning how to die didn't seem to make any preparation for meeting God when he does die.

A wonderful wonderful book. A sports writer looks up his old college professor after hearing of his illness and the relationship between the two that rekindles after years apart. This book should be read by people of all ages. These are the life lessons that Morrie passed down to Mitch Albom, and Mitch was kind enough to share them with the world. This book touched me and made me think about the things that are really important in life. This book is a MUST read. Buy this book for yourself, then pass it on to a person you love: mother, father, sister, brother, wife, husband, friend or teenager, everyone should read this book.
