Title: Tuesdays with Morrie

Author: Mitch Albom

Genre: Non-fiction, Memoir

Published: 1997

This book is a heartwarming and profound story that talks about the author’s (Mitch Albom) real-life relationship with his former college professor, Morrie Schwartz, who, battling a terminal illness, remained positive and continued to teach his students about life and love. Through a series of Tuesday meetings, Albom learns valuable life lessons from him. The central theme of Tuesdays with Morrie revolves around the concept of embracing life and cherishing the time we have.

One of the best things about this book, in my opinion, is Albom’s writing style. His narrative is simple, yet deeply profound, making it accessible to readers from all walks of life. The conversational tone of the book makes you feel as though you are sitting right there with Morrie and Albom, listening to their heartfelt conversations. The wisdom imparted by Morrie is presented in a way that is both relatable and thought-provoking, leaving a lasting impact on one’s mind.

Even though this book can be sad at times the concepts and life lessons that are spoken about throughout the book are deep and meaningful ; perfect for a good cry. It’s a story that talks about Albom’s actual life and what he learned from his professor. His life lessons can be useful to all of us. Furthermore it is very engaging; this is also the type of book that you can’t put down until you get to the end.
