ABOUT THE BOOK
Throughout our lives we have all encountered, at one point or another, people who have taught us some new insight about life, the universe, and our place in it. A beloved grandparent passing on the wisdom they have collected throughout the years, or a teacher whose guidance was instrumental in forming us into the person we are today. For Mitch Albom, the person who made that difference in his life was Morrie Schwartz.
Tuesdays with Morrie chronicles a professor’s final lecture to his former student with whom he reconnects in his final days. The book has sold over 14 million copies to date and has more than 50 editions the world over. At its core, the book really tells two stories. On one hand, it narrates Morrie’s final lessons for Mitch Albom. But it also talks about Morrie’s rich and colorful life. Both stories are framed in the context of Tuesday “lessons,” which is where the book gets its title.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Because the book’s focus is on Mitch and Morrie, much of the narrative is told via flashbacks that highlight moments in the lives of both men. The story begins at the end of Mitch’s initial relationship with Morrie, his college graduation. During this time, Mitch gives his professor a tan leather briefcase with Morrie’s initials monogrammed on it. He promises to stay in touch. But the promises is forgotten and many years would pass before both friends are reunited.
Since graduating, Mitch went on to become a newspaper journalist and led a life in the fastlane, constantly working and traveling. Prior to his success as a journalist, Mitch was forced to abandon a failing musical career. Mitch becomes so fixated with work that it crowds out other aspects of his life.
