A special 20th anniversary edition of the beloved international bestseller that changed millions of lives

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, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.

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 is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

Mitch Albom was born on May 23, 1958 in Passaic, New Jersey. He graduated from Brandeis University in 1979 with a degree in sociology and earned his Master's degrees in journalism and business administration from Columbia University in New York City. Albom is a best-selling author, nationally syndicated newspaper columnist for the Detr...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Good In essence, this novel is a dying professor's reminiscings of his life as a professor, father, husband and man. It is the putting of one's life in review in determining the quality of existence versus the quantity of existence. A must read and re-read for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Touching Story This is a really beautiful (True) story about a student and his professor. I found it really relatable after having a really great professor in school that I became very close to. Everyone has at least one great teacher in their lives. This book touches on a lot of philosophical ideas and morality. Definitely worth a read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confused whether or not to buy? ; Totally worth the buy! 'Tuesday's with Morrie'; a title that gets readers or future readers to think about what the book will be about. This book is so well written; as are all of Mitch Albom's books, although in my perspective, I believe that readers can get the most out of this specific book, mainly due to the amount of information that the author shares with his readers. Albom shares personal experiences with an old college professor of this throughout his last few months of life; ranging from different topics of life that everyone living will go through one day or another. This book comes with life lessons that are hidden but not to the point that one is unable to figure them out. This book is very thought-provoking and can alter one's view of life itself. Definitely recommend this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite Book To Date The first title I read from Mitch Albom was "The Five People You Meet In Heaven" in high school, and since then I haven't picked up another one of his works. This return to Albom's curiously sentimental and emotional writing was a fresh exhale I didn't know I was holding in. Lots of great musings to keep you thinking, and will probably cause you to want to reinvent your life after reading about the sweet soul that is Morrie Schwartz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring Mitch Albom is my all time favourite author. His novels are always so inspiring. His character development is wonderful and relatable at times. Tuesdays with Morrie is about second chances, something that some may take for granted, while others may cherish them. Knowing the inevitable outcome of the novel does not change how I feel about this novel, it may be sad but it also teaches us to have hope.

I have never been a fast reader, or someone or loves to read but this was one book I could not put down. I would choose the book over sleep. The lessons in this novel are mind opening, the relationship between the two men is extraordinary like no other. It truly makes you self-reflect on your purpose as a human and the values and love we have for one another. It will make you cry, but you will finish this book with a greater understanding of death and how to live life.

It shows that the older generation has so much to offer if we are willing to listen. Such a good read that makes you think about life!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looking for more depth... Mitch Albom is a heartfelt writer. Having said that, you will easily identify the same patterns in every book he writes so if you are looking to be surprised, you will be disappointed. I have read 3 of his books; all are similarly formulaic and have someone teaching someone else some pretty basic life lessons. All are simple and quick to read. The same way every Nicholas Sparks book seems to involve thwarted love, a stack of letters and two people separated unjustly by life. I see why they have broad appeal but am looking for something with more depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the kind of novel you cannot rate. Honestly. I could read this one day and give it 5 stars. Read it a month later under different personal circumstances and rate it a 2 star. You need to be in the <i>mood</i>. It's light, it's funny and it's cheesy - but that's the point. Life, love, regrets, money. They cover all topics. Humans are perfectly imperfect and so is this novel. Love it or hate it, you cannot rate it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I initially bought this book as a recommendation when someone saw "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" on my bookshelf (Also by Mitch Albom). This book is inspirational. It makes you think twice about life, and just how precious it is. It makes you appreciate everything given to us- the good and the bad. It teaches us to slow down and embrace life, while doing what you truly love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book helped me a lot I was about 15 when I read this book. It was for school and I thought I was going to hate it. Exact opposite actually happened to my surprise. We read a few pages a day as a class, taking turns reading out loud, but I loved it so much I finished it on my own in less than a week. My teacher was both annoyed and impressed. I had a lot of anxiety revolving around the idea of death and I would have panic attacks nearly every night. Then I read Tuesdays with Morrie and they stopped. Not completely, they came back once in a while but this book really helped me to deal with the feeling of being afraid of death and it helped me to accept it more than I had been. The book is emotional and just overall amazing. I would definitely recommend this for anyone dealing with a similar feeling that I had at 15. Or just in general, it's a really great book!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish I would have liked it more What can I say -- 'eh........ I really wanted to love this book. I went in with all the right intentions - just never happened for me. I have really enjoyed some of Mitch's other books that have been very thought provoking. But this just didn't do it for me. Should you read it?? It depends on who you are..... what political slant you lean..... and what you are looking for in a novel. The message of loving more - it a good one. The world can use more love.

Really makes you think about the lives you affect and the relationships you make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preparing Death There are many books out there that could teach you about life and the philosophies within. There's nothing more true than to experience death through ALS (where each organ of your body start to malfunction over time) & the learn the various regrets of others to understand about the true meaning of life. If you want to start find your life purpose, prepare for your death.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make the most of life ! An excellent book about how precious life and relationships are. I hope anyone who is thinking of or in favor of assisted suicide reads this book. Dying and suffering is not undignified, it is a normal progression of living. Morrie died with dignity and his story is heart wrenching. This book will leave a lasting impression on living life to the fullest and cherishing everything that life deals you. Thank you Mitch for your friendship to this brave inspiring man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Story... a must read If a loved one has died, this is a well thought out & comforting story to read. It is NOT a religious book & can be literally enjoyed by anyone - people who have no religious views and people of faith alike. I first read this book when my Dad passed away 3 yrs ago & am re-reading it as my Mom just passed away on Boxing Day (2012).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like it at all This book was very boring to read. I believe the wisdom in this book could be summarized to 2 pages only. I felt that there was a lot of unnecessary filler material just to make the book longer. it's a book about a student who loved his professor and at the end i felt like "why do i have to know about how much you loved your professor?" ... I'm sorry but i didn't like this book at all, very slow and boring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Short and to the Point Tuesdays with Morrie is a book you gift to anyone who needs to appreciate life just a little bit more. :) You will learn to love Morrie and as you turn the pages, you wish the book was a little bit bigger so you could spend a little bit more time with the characters as you go through it rather quickly. Simply one of the great reads and I promise it will make you look at life very very differently. Enjoy and pass the book onto your friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing I found this book to be very intriguing. It also makes you think about how you can change your life if, you are not happey with the direction or path that you are taking, or have chosen. This book also made me feel inspired, a bit becasue of Morrie's attitude with his illness, and how stronge he was to keep on fighting on right up to the end of his life. For me it was a very touching, and meaningful kinda got you by the heart story. If you like this kind of story then you will love this book just like I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read for anyone & everyone, especially caregivers Along with "the Last Lecture", one of 2 books I could read over and over again without getting tired of it. Each time coming away with a renewed dedication to focusing on what is truly important in life. Many life lessons enclosed - some basic - but easily forgotten in day to day life. I wish I knew Morrie, although you'll feel like you do when you read it. A wonderfully intelligent, frank, witty and humorous character. One of few books I would recommend to anyone and everyone to read, essential for caregivers and palliative care workers. Initially I discovered it when assigned a chapter in a Palliative Care class in university. It made the textbook and lecture teachings of end of life care for both the person dying and caregivers seem real. It changed many views on the process of dying in that class, and how it should be handled. That one assigned chapter had such a strong impact that I kept it in my mind until years later when I finally saw the book again and read the whole thing...and then read it again. If you ever look back and think "I wish I knew then what I know now" and wonder what you'll think in the future about your life now - read Morrie- he knows!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ain't Morrie Sweet This was definitely a good book, but I was a little disappointed. I thought I'd be more attached to Morrie and Mitch's story, but I wasn't. It was interesting to see what Morrie's teachings were to his old student, but I have to say that I've heard those ideals from other sources and even thought some of them myself; I think that's why I wasn't as flabbergasted with the book as I may have been had I not previously known a lot of the content.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Inspirational Tuesdays with Morrie was a beautiful read, Definitely one of the most ispirational books i've ever read. Morrie was full of so much wisdom and compassion, it was truly touching. I think everyone can learn a littlle from Morrie Schwartz and his look on life and death. I would recommened this book to anyone. It was such an easy but great read, and it is one of the few books i've read in one sitting because i just couldn't put it down. I was in tears by the end, and was left moved and inspired. This book will make you laugh and cry. If you haven't read 'Tuesdays with Morrie' yet, then you should get it now, this is a book that shouldn't be missed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reminder of What is Important Like many others here, I enjoyed this book. Some people said it was preachy, and I can see how people could see it that way, but to me it was fine. The book reminds us what is wrong with the world today, and is about focusing on what is most important - loving and connecting with other people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Keeper on the Bedside Table Tuesdays with Morrie is a memoir written by Mitch Albom. It is the story of Mitch's university professor (Morrie) who is facing a gruelling death, yet deems himself lucky and still alive despite the ticking clock. It is said that we don't know the meaning of life until we are near death. The book is full of Morrie's life lessons that transcend all religions as we are all human. Death seems to bring us closer together somehow. Tuesdays with Morrie is an easy read that is rich with life lessons. It is one of those books that should be forever kept on the bedside table or resting on the bookshelf with the cover facing forward as a reminder to be read and reread again. I highly recommend this book. Visit my book blog at bambireads.blogspot.com for more reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have You Met Morrie? There are many things in life that we take for granted. Among those things are death, aging, relationships and even love. Morrie, who is a professor, shares about these universal concepts by sharing his abundant life experiences. Through unexpected circumstances, Mitch becomes Morrie's last student, thus beginning a series of conversations between a dying professor and a reluctant student. The classroom is Morrie's living room, cluttered with life support fixtures and a small hibiscus plant; the syllabus is on life. Morrie has a character of optimism, humility and he knows how to enjoy life to the fullest. However, there is one thing that is not quite right; he has less than one year to live. As Morrie opens up his life, he teaches Mitch how to accept death as a natural process. He displays vulnerability, love, humor and timeless principles on the art of living. Mitch, as well as the reader gets a refreshed outlook on life as we reflect on how Morrie has lived his own. If you are trapped in the routine of daily living or struggling with relationships or you simply want a warm, touching book to read with a cup of coffee, I introduce you to meet Morrie! Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I <3 Morrie What a truly inspiring man Morrie Schwartz was. I found myself making a list of "Morrieisms" to look back at when I am feeling low. I can also finally say that a book made me shed a tear. With a clearer outlook on the beauty of what can be this life, I am now aware of the strong tension of opposites that have been apparent throughout mine. Morrie was right when he said, "Love always wins." Everyone should read this book. www.booksnakereviews.blogspot.com

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great true story. For the most part i really enjoyed it. At times i thought that the book was repetitive but it is a true story after all so i guess that should be expected. Alot of people say that the book is preachy, while i do agree somewhat people have to remember these are the views of a dying man. I think that anyones point of view would change if they knew they were going to die soon. This is a great book though. Everyone should read it at least once.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mildly interesting. One of those books that is a great concept but leaves you saying: "Is that all there is". I don't need a dying guy to convince me that I should spend more time with the family etc. Just never really turned the corner to become a great book instead of a merely interesting one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing inspirations "Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson" was the first book I read of Mitch Albom. Mitch's college professor, Morrie Schwartz, was dying. During the last months of his life, Morrie met up with Mitch in his study every Tuesday to teach the young man the final and most important lessons - how to live our lives. Amazing inspirations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Any Day is Good for These Lessons Sixteen years after promising to “keep in touch” with Morrie Schwartz, Mitch Albom finds out that his old professor is dying, and so he signs up for one last class: The Meaning of Life. Sports columnist-turned-authour Mitch Albom was the only student, and “Tuesdays With Morrie” was his final thesis. In their discussions about money, marriage, family, aging, and death, Morrie finds all of his answers in love. “Tuesdays With Morrie” has difficulties with tense, and is a simple book – no doubt written for the masses as journalistic instinct intended – but it has a good heart. Morrie. Adapted for the screen by Thomas Rickman; adapted for the stage by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan... Although I am quite aware that there will be hundreds of people to disagree with me, I did not love this book. I found it to be extremely self righteous. When a story is touching, no one has to hint at it and I found that the book was to say the least quite "full of itself". It's not horrible but I did not love it. I didn't find it as touching as I was expecting from all the talk surrounding it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating to the unth degree What an unbelievable read. I've heard a lot of people say it was "boring" (we read it for our grade 11 english class) but they have all totally missed the point. There wasn't supposed to be action... it was supposed to make you reflect on your own life, not try to feed off of somebody else's like a Bruce Willis movie. This book kept me going the entire time. I literally could not put it down, so I didn't. I read it until it was done... This book has proved as so many different things, advice, tenderness... this book is a bottomless well of good advice and heroisme. Albom gets a pat on the back from me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too philosophical I thought this book was a little boring at times. I enjoyed the story of how Mitch and Morrie were friends more than the philisophical 'debates' they got into. It bothered me, until the end of the book when it was actually explained, with all the talk of how material goods are meaningless and money isn't worth much, that Mitch was sitting here writing a (small) book that costs $23. At the end he explains that forwarded money went to help pay for Morrie's medical bills, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read and Enjoy! Tuesdays with Morrie was an incredible book to read. You learned something new every time you read it. It was a very simple book to read and although it followed a pattern you never got bored. You began to feel sorry for Morrie throughout his ordeal; he was dealing with death and trying to live his life to the fullest, while his family and friends watched him deteriorate into nothing. This book moved me in was I thought could never happen from a book. You began to feel as if you were sitting in the room with Mitch and Morrie during their lessons together. This book is the basis of don’t judge a book by it cover. From the cover it’s not appealing at all; it actually might prevent many people from reading it, because our society is one that is based on looks. This was the first book I read that you had to read deeper into it to really understand it. You can skim through the book and get the simple meaning but you have to really read the book to message the author tried to portray. I would defiantly recommend reading this book; it will better your life.

This is a lesson book that begs to be read by young and old alike. My mom gave me the book as a gift , but now I see that the physical book wasn't gift, the lessons/stories are the real gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tuesday with Morrie Tuesdays with Morrie is a book I will recommend to any one anywhere. It is a must read. In this book it explores what inevitably happens in life; Death. This leaves us with a question ‘what is important in life? How am I living my life’ A relationship between a man and his mentor where knowledge and wisdom over time is transferred to a much younger man who starts to see what living life is really all about. An outline for living if you will. For those of us who have lost loved one will know what it feels like. Have these discussions now with your loved ones; be open to hearing what is said. Never let an opportunity or moment go by with out having these discussions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inside One's Head and, More Importantly, Heart I had shied away from this book for a long time. I am an English teacher so I discuss books with many people but I was concerned that this one was going to hit too close to home. My dad passed away a year ago and I thought I may not be able to handle the book. Was I ever wrong! It made me cry, in front of my students in fact as I read it while they silently read, but more importantly it made me think. My dad didn't want to talk about his feelings as he was dying but reading this book made me realize that he, like Morrie, was appreciating the world around him. This brought me a sense of peace while reminding me of what is truly important in life. This is a must-read! Yes, you may cry but you will also love the book and all that it brings to you.
