The Wisdom of Morrie edited by Rob Schwartz
Tuesdays with Morrie
by Mitch Albom
This is the best-selling memoir to date with
18 million copies sold around the world.
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 rediscovered 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.
As life-affirming as it is life-releasing, Morrie: In His Own Words has had a profound effect on generations of readers.
Morrie: In His Own Words
(previously titled) Letting Go
published by Walker & Company
"Learn how to live and you'll know how to die; learn how to die, and you'll know how to live." In these remarkable pages are the profound, life-affirming words of Morrie Schwartz as he faced his own imminent death. In 1994, at the age of seventy-seven, Schwartz learned he had ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Undaunted, the former professor embraced his illness, choosing to live passionately and calmly until the end.
Morrie embarked on his greatest teaching adventure: sharing his evolving knowledge of living while dying. With warmth, wisdom, and humor, Morrie reveals how to: -- live fully in the moment -- tap into the powers of the mind to transcend physical limitations -- grieve for your losses -- reach out to family and friends -- develop an inner space for meditation and spiritual connection. It's never too late to become the kind of person you'd like to be.
Morrie's willingness to talk about his illness made him an inspiration. In 1995, the news program Nightline ran three interviews in which TV journalist Ted Koppel spoke to Morrie about life, death and the disease that was afflicting his body. In Morrie: In His Own Words, Morrie combined inspiring lessons with practical advice to help those who have chronic or terminal sickness and to maintain healthy emotions and loving relationships.
