    Ugh, it was like stapling together eighty greeting cards and reading them straight through. Hate.

    I have decided to delete this review. It was not my intention to upset anyone who either suffered from the disorder discussed in this book nor anyone related to such a person (See comment 270). Nonetheless, I still believe this to be a particularly poorly written book that contains more saccharine than substance. Still, if it brings you some sense of comfort - more strength to you.I have chosen not to delete the comments thread as not all of the comments are mine to delete.

    If I were to die unexpectedly I wouldn’t be ashamed in the least of someone finding my porn stash. And by the way, that video isn’t bestiality, it’s just two guys in a moose suit—big difference. I would be a little ashamed of the fact that I have the first season of 90210 on my iPod, something I downloaded for a friend’s 14 year old daughter (note to self: delete it now!). I’m more worried about someone coming across Tuesdays with Morrie or Eat, Pray, Love in my book collection. I have some explaining to do.Like any pseudo-intellectual dipshit, I wouldn’t normally be caught dead with pieces of shit like those two in my library, but I believe that given my current living situation there are extenuating circumstances. I buy books compulsively, especially when they are really inexpensive. I pass by a pawn shop about once a month to buy books for .50€ each. Books in Spain are generally a bit expensive so at this price I will buy almost anything—even the two pieces of shit mentioned above. I give away lots of books to friends and acquaintances, especially when they come this cheaply. I actually read Tuesdays with Morrie, or at least I speed-read part of it for the purposes of this essay and I had read Eat, Pray, Love some years ago, or at least most of it. Both are best sellers meant for people who almost never read. They are books for people who claim a book is brilliant simply because they were able to finish it. "Look everyone! I'm reading, I'm really reading!" I think anything people read is better than not reading, but that’s all the praise I have for these particular works promising to give the reader the deep meaning of life. Any book claiming to explain life's mysteries should set off the alarms for anyone with half a brain; books like the Bible, the Talmud, or the Koran fall into this category of trash. I’m sorry folks--there are no “answers” in life. There's only wisdom and wisdom takes time, certainly more than the 192 pages that make up Tuesdays with Morrie. Answers are simply created by people who are terrified that there might not be answers. The problem is when religions or the Mitch Alboms and Elizabeth Gilberts of the world start infringing on the domain of the rational with their moronic explanations of the spiritual or existential. I would say that these institutions (religions and hack writers) constantly violate the airspace of the rational and scientific. Tuesdays and Eat claim to be instruction manuals for life. They have about as much spiritual depth as a newspaper horoscope or a fortune cookie. In the case of the aphorisms in Tuesdays I’d say they were pretty lousy fortune cookies. A few examples:Learn to forgive yourself and forgive others.Accept the past as past and what you are not able to do.Don’t assume that it’s too late to get involved. Morrie is a fountain of banalities. "Whenever people ask me about having children or not having children, I never tell them what to do." Why the fuck would he? He was a sociology professor, not Heinrich Himmler. Wisdom is difficult to define but I think I know it when I see it. I ain't seeing it here.P.S. If I dated a girl who had this book on her bed table I would probably escape by jumping out her third story bathroom window. It would creep me out, like when that girl saw the fingernails on the wall in Silence of the Lambs.

    I have never written a review like this before but this book truly inspired me.So I just finished reading "Tuesdays With Morrie". What a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down! I cannot even imagine going through the last stages of my own life and being as brave (for lack of a better word in my head right now) as Morrie. He was filled with such happiness and joy in his own life. He had regrets but realized that it is ok as long as you can reconcile with yourself in the end. I'm not the type of person to find quotes in the literature I read. However, as I turned page after page through this book and submersed myself into the text I was reading I found myself getting out of bed in the middle of the night to find some post-its only to tag so many different paragraphs and pages that inspired me or had me think about things in my own life. The idea of detaching oneself from emotions just baffled me. I myself fell in love and was heart broken in the end. I felt, and sometimes still feel, that I never want to experience such pain and heartache again. But Morrie says it best "If you hold back on the emotions - if you don't allow yourself to go through them - you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing your self to dive right in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, 'All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.'" Who would have thought it is ok to show emotions as long as one does not stay with that emotion for too long. Another quote that I find so enlightening... "In the beginning of life, when we are infants, we need others to survive, right? And at the end of life, when you get like me, you need others to survive right?... But here's the secret: in between, we need others as well." This line in the book had me stop and think about everything I have in my life rather than anything I am "missing" in life. WHy should we focus on not having that special someone when truly many of us have multiple people in our lives who care for us and will be there for us in the end. Although Morrie does go on to say that everyone should find that love to marry. But why do we need to? I know that there are people who would take care of me later in life. Those that will be there for me always. While I hope to find my "true love" I still am blessed for those I have met in the past to years. I am only ashamed that I never saw them sitting right there in front of me until I read this book. Thank you for being there for me everyone! And, I hope for many more days spent with all of you and even more people to share my life with.

    This is one of those books where I find myself agreeing with the five star reviews and the one star reviews with almost equal enthusiasm.On one hand, it's the sweet story of a man as he reconnects with a former mentor/professor, who is facing a death sentence via ALS. It's obvious that Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie" provided them both with something substantially satisfying. And that's inspiring and poignant. Yet on the other hand, Albom's attempts to enlighten us transforms it into a "Hallmark" card on steroids, a rather dramatic and prolonged one that does little more to demystify the true meaning of life than offer up tired and somewhat ambiguous cliches like "love conquers all." Though an honorable sentiment, it's not markedly more substantive or instructive than the alternative, "life sucks and then you die."Let's face it. Death scares the *%(^ out of most of it should, especially when you consider that no one really knows what it's like to be dead, if it's like anything at all. Add to that the fact that in the grand scope of things we're all insignificant blimps/statistically insignificant(tens of thousands of people die every day around the world and yet most of their deaths go relatively unnoticed) and the glaring reality that it takes markedly more than "love" to make it through life, and these comforting cliches suddenly lose some of their "comfort."However, that doesn't mean life has to be or feel meaningless, it simply means it is up to each of us to find and give our lives meaning...whatever that may mean.Tuesdays with Morrie definitely encourages the reader to stop and think about what is important, yet falls short of providing any new insight into how one actually figures it out for themselves and/or how we reach that balance between living as if there is a tomorrow while simultaneously realizing that, at least for some us, there won't be.Alas...3 stars. A book worth reading, but not a life-changing or even an attitude-changing one. I should add that this book might hold more appeal to someone who,like Morrie, is coming to immediate terms with his own mortality as they may find inspiration in his personal story.

    Review inspired by Eddie GreenwellWisdom grows with age. But the development of wisdom also accelerates when mortality becomes clear. Mortality shined down on Morrie Schwartz, a happy not-quite-old man through a quick diagnosis of ALS – or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Morrie was a professor of sociology at Brandeis University; he dedicated his life to the study of individuals’ actions in their respective societies and together he and Mitch Albom wrote his final paper: a study of his life in his society. The framework for Albom and Morrie’s message of love and returning to what’s important is archetypal in world literature. The Bible, Koran and other religious books trumpet the theme that the relationships of familial love end up giving you ultimate joy in the end. Literary fiction is a wonderful genre, but literary fiction shouldn’t tell the reader outright there is some lesson to be learned. It should be the same with non-fiction as well. In this story, the message is one of those direct, sappy ones: surround yourself with loved ones and know what is important, and don't get caught with money and business. We have heard that a million times! Worse, he doesn’t write it in a more creative way that we have heard it in the past.The problem is that Tuesdays with Morrie seems like some kind of self help book. Albom needs to learn to give only the story and let the reader make of it what she wants. He shouldn’t preach to the reader, "I traded lots of dreams for a bigger paycheck" (p. 33). That is why his work comes across so sappy – one liners creep into the pages all over. In comparing Tuesdays to Five People you Meet in Heaven, they make Albom look like a one-trick pony. Much of the content is the same. A character (Eddie in "Five People..." and Mitch in "Teusdays...") has a lesson he needs spelled out for them...and they cry...a lot. They don't just live the story, they take on the empty-headed-learning perspective. His characters don't bring much to the table, but seem naive and ignorant, without common sense. Along these lines, no character in good literature can just be told a lesson and then live it. For example, would A Christmas Carol really have been much of a story if the ghosts would have just sat down and talked to Ebenezer Scrooge—who is highly comparable to Mitch in this novel—and said "Hey, you work too much and you don't really enjoy life," and then Ebenezer just did it. No, Ebenezer had to live through the consequences of his lifestyle and then choose for himself. The best part of a great and lasting character, and the part that Albom severely misses out on, is the growing. A good character doesn't just get told and then accept. Albom's characters are spoon-fed quotes and lessons like children and the reader is supposed to buy it! Well, I don't. I need to learn human development, not be told how to develop. To jazz Tuesdays up, give us more of Mitch's life as a reporter. Not just glimpses of and a complete summary (a literary no-no) of his life as a business man. Albom needs to take the time out to develop the friction between Mitch's life in Detroit and his life at Brandeis. The true beauty about this inherent conflict that most readers can identify with is that there is an allure to making all that money and living it up as a great sports writer as opposed to living with less money but happier. It is a more dynamic and relevant story and teaches more than Albom’s classroom environment. Some of Morries lessons are inconsistent, and the reader must forget what Albom heralded at the beginning of the encounter. For example, Morrie was adamant at the beginning of the novel that he was not embarrassed about his humanity; he lived his own life without thinking about his stature, power or wealth. He claimed that one should never worry about what other people thought about him. Later in the book, after his ALS progressed, he complained about being embarrassed about how degenerate his body had become. He stopped letting visitors be with him much and identified that his biggest thorn was that the nurse had to help him with his intimate needs in the bathroom. These inconsistencies make the reader confused as to whether Morrie progressed and realized his humanity or truly lived out of the rat race.If Albom has grown as an author, it is simply to write in such a sappy dramatic way that the general public eats it up, but does not digest. As he says in Tuesdays: "Yet they gave up days and weeks of their lives, addicted to someone else's drama" (42). Perhaps he should spend some time reading Hemmingway before his next novel, and really dig into the characters and conflicts.The criticality of this novel stems from Albom’s desire that his audience think about and learn from the piece. It was too sappy to be taken seriously and truly learn from.

    I'd heard raves about "Tuesdays with Morrie," so I was went into this with high hopes due to hype,and this book delivered and enchanted me. It is truly a book about teaching and teachable moments. A book for anyone that is looking for something that can help him or her through life when it gets hard. "Tuesdays with Morrie" starts off as a teacher who watches his student, Mitch Albom, go through college and then later in life Mitch experiences this same teacher (or Coach, Morrie) struggle with a life threatening disease. After college Mitch Albom was wrapped up in material things and career concerns until he was reunited with his dying professor. Albom's time with Morrie Schwartz, before his death, is chronicled in this charming little book. The lessons might seem cliché or overdone in the hands of another writer; however, because Albom had such a close relationship with Morrie the professor's personality really comes through in the book. What might've been super sappy, and at sometimes it is a little bit, otherwise comes through with heartfelt meaning and the sincerity with which it was so lovingly passed on to Albom as he talked with his friend in his dying days. This book is not all heavy and filled with seriousness though, there's a great deal of humor in Morrie's attitude, lessons, and stories and I found myself laughing every now and then.I rated this book a five out of five because I think it's a book that every person should read at some point in his or her life. Morrie helps you look at life from a different angle or with a different lens. Morrie makes you realize how good life really is, despite his condition, and how we should value our time on Earth. He speaks on death not being a bad thing, but a good thing especially if you have lived the life that you wanted to. When Morrie was dying he explained that everyone should do what they dream of doing, don't let life get in the way of things. Money, power, etc. All that stuff is a cultural blinder, and that we should make sure we get a chance to do all of the things that we want to before we die. In addition to the great story, I was also impressed with the layout of the book. Albom intermingles old memories from his college days in Morrie's classes among the short chapters dealing with specific life lessons like aging, love, and death. This method of layout made for an engrossing, and very fast-moving read. I blew through the book in only a few hours and was completely satisfied with its well roundedness. There was laughter as well as tears, and I came away from the book feeling enriched. I had a couple friends say to me that they had to read this book in school, now after reading it I say, I wish I had this assigned to me, it was a great read. Funny that I finished this book on a Tuesday, Morrie would say, "we're Tuesday people.""In the beginning of life, when we are infants, we need others to survive, right? And at the end of life, when you get like me, you need others to survive right?... But here's the secret: in between, we need others as well." - Morris Schwartz"Have you ever really had a teacher? One who saw you as a raw but previous thing, a jewel that, with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find a way back. Sometimes it is only in your head. Sometimes it is right alongside their beds." - Mitch Albom

    * Reread"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning." Whenever someone asks me to tell them my favorite books of all time, I always put this book at the top of the list. I blame but thank this book for becoming the reader that I am today and even though this book drowned me in a pool of tears...this is still one of my most inspiring reads. ^^ Reading this book was like taking a complete course on life and living and there is no better life coach than Morrie. This may sound exaggerated but I felt like I became a different person and a better one at that after reading this. I thank Mitch Albom for sharing not only his special gift in writing, but also his incredible experience as one of Morrie's students. This is honest to goodness the book that literally changed my life and I will be forever grateful. <3 <3 <3

    Gue memasuki tahun 2013 ini tanpa daftar. Hanya beberapa catatan penting yang sederhana. Tidak banyak, tapi semoga bisa tetap bertahan sampai di akhir tahun.Tahun lalu, gue bersemangat mencoba banyak hal baru, dan berniat memperkaya pengalaman dengan menantang diri sendiri untuk melakukan lebih banyak hal. Jadilah gue membuat daftar."27 daftar dari hal-hal yang ingin gue lakukan sebelum gue berusia 27 tahun."Sebagian dari daftar ini terlaksana. Sebagian lagi tidak. Sebagian lainnya tidak terselesaikan. Tapi tidak apa. Gue puas. Karena yang sedikit itu jauh lebih berarti daripada tidak sama sekali. Ya kan?Jadi apa itu berarti gue akan menjelang bahagia dengan memiliki lebih sedikit keinginan di awal tahun ini?Tidak. Karena kenyataannya, gue takut.Tahun ini gue akan berumur 28.My biological clock is ticking. And I wish I could stop it. Freeze it. Or anything.Rasanya seperti menyusuri lorong gelap yang lembap, dengan pakaian setengah basah, kedinginan, kelaparan, meraba-raba, dan sendirian. Pelan-pelan, berharap bisa melihat cahaya entah dari mana saja.Kemudian tanpa prasangka apa-apa, buku ini lah yang gue baca di awal tahun ini.Pelajaran tentang makna hidup.Dan kemudian, hal ini yang tersampaikan langsung kepada gue:Kita tahu bahwa penuaan tidak hanya berarti pelapukan, tetapi juga pertumbuhan. Penuaan tidak hanya bermakna negatif, bahwa kita akan mati, tetapi juga makna positif, bahwa kita mengerti kenyataan bahwa kita akan mati dan karena itu kita berusaha untuk hidup dengan cara lebih baik.Jika kalian bersikeras melawan proses penuaan kalian akan selalu merasa tidak bahagia, karena bagaimanapun itu akan terjadi. p. 126 Dan gue mengamini itu semua. Menua berarti kebijaksanaan untuk memahami mengapa kita ada. Terima kasih, Morrie.Gue takut kalau salah satu dari orang yang gue sayang mungkin tidak akan ada untuk menutup tahun 2013 dan menjelang tahun 2014 bersama gue.Atau malah mungkin gue yang tidak akan ada lagi untuk menyambut tahun-tahun lain kehidupan gue di dunia ini. Yah, namanya umur kan ngga ada yang tahu.Mengetahui bawa kita akan mati, dan bersiap diri andaikan hal itu terjadi entah kapan. Itu lebih baik. Dengan cara demikian sesungguhnya kita dapat lebih berperan dalam proses yang terjadi sementara kita masih hidup. (p. 86) Gue suka sekali dengan "upacara pemakaman" yang diadakan Morrie untuk dirinya sendiri dimana ia masih bisa mendengarkan eulogi yang disampaikan oleh orang-orang terdekatnya disaat ia masih hidup. Itu merupakan salah satu hal luar biasa yang gue dapatkan juga dari buku ini.Kemudian, gue takut sendirian. Bukan bicara status, tapi serius, dalam beberapa aspek kehidupan, gue ngga lagi nyaman dengan kesendirian. Gue benci dengan masa lalu yang mengantarkan kesendirian ke hadapan gue. Gue benci pernah disingkirkan. Dan pada akhirnya, setelah semua emosi itu tak lagi bisa diluapkan, ia mengerak, mengendap, menolak untuk dilenyapkan. Satu-dua kali, gue menangisi diri sendiri. *ih sumpah gue jujur banget sih *sigh*Aku memberi kesempatan kepada diriku untuk menangis kalau itu perlu. Tapi setelah itu aku memusatkan perhatianku kepada segala hal yang masih baik dalam hidupku.Setiap pagi kubiarkan diriku menangis sedikit, tapi hanya itu. (p. 61) Oh. Begitu rupanya. *menghela napas lagi*Mengawali tahun yang baru dengan sederet ketakutan tersebut, gue mungkin bisa menampilkan kesan bahwa gue tak pedulian dengan itu semua. Tapi kalau boleh jujur, mengingkari perasaan sendiri bukanlah hal yang menyenangkan.Makin kesini gue makin sadar, bahwa pengalaman memang penting. Tapi bagaimana bila seandainya, atas nama "pengalaman", yang selama ini gue lakukan sebenarnya hanyalah berusaha mengenyahkan ketakutan-ketakutan itu satu-persatu?Membaca buku ini, gue jadi memahami: Keseimbangan itu penting. Keseimbangan yang gue cari adalah bagaimana gue bisa memperkaya diri sendiri dengan pengalaman, sekaligus memperkaya batin.Menyelesaikan buku ini seperti menikmati lagi hangat matahari setelah berhari-hari kita terkurung di dalam badai. Gue menemukan pencerahan. Semangat. Bahwa ada jauh lebih banyak hal-hal baik dalam hidup. Hal-hal baik yang selama ini mungkin luput dari perhatian karena kita begitu terbiasa dengan kehidupan.Hal-hal yang tak lagi terdengar, karena hiruk-pikuk rutinitas yang selalu berpacu dengan waktu. Yang hanya bisa didengarkan, apabila kita memang benar-benar mau mendengarkan.Akhirnya, perjalanan gue di lorong gelap itu berakhir.Buat gue, Mitch Albom beruntung. Morrie pun beruntung. Dan gue juga beruntung.Satu-dua typo tidak jadi masalah. Anehnya, beberapa kesalahan pengetikan itu justru malah menguatkan sosok Morrie yang digambarkan oleh Albom di dalam buku ini. Karena seperti itulah Morrie. Dengan segala ketidaksempurnaannya. Tapi begitu kaya. (Walopun sebenernya yang harusnya ngurusin typonya mah kan editor atau proofreadernya ya. Ngga ada urusannya ama Morrie langsung sih..)Tidak banyak buku yang mampu menghadirkan kehangatan di dalam hati gue setelah gue selesai membacanya. Buku-buku yang bisa menyembuhkan lewat kata-kata. Sejauh yang gue ingat, cuma Aleph dan Tiket Emas Kehidupan yang dulu mampu begitu.Sungguh, banyak hal yang gue pelajari, renungkan, tangisi, dan resapi di dalam buku ini."Aku percaya dengan manfaat kehadiran yang seutuhnya," kata Morrie. Artinya kita harus bersama orang yang sedang kita hadapi. Ketika aku berbincang denganmu sekarang, Mitch, aku mencoba tetap memusatkan perhatianku hanya kepada yang sedang kita bicarakan. Aku tidak berpikir tentang sesuatu yang kita obrolkan pekan lalu. Aku tidak berpikir tentang apa yang akan terjadi Jumat besok. Aku tidak berpikir tentang penampilanku nanti bersama Koppel, atau tentang obat-obatan yang sedang aku minum."Aku sedang bercakap-cakap denganmu. Maka aku berpikir tentangmu." Begitulah.Rasa-rasanya semesta memang berbicara dengan cara yang rahasia. Tanpa bisa kita duga. Dan terlepas dari bagaimana kita menerjemahkannya, kita harus percaya bahwa ada kekuatan besar yang sudah mengatur semuanya agar bisa berjalan sebagaimana mestinya.Dan apalagi semangat terbesar untuk menghargai semua yang ada, jika itu bukanlah semangat untuk menjalani hidup kita sepenuhnya, semaksimal mungkin?Apalagi semangat terbesar untuk menghargai semua itu, jika itu bukanlah dengan mensyukuri semua yang kita punya, sampai hal sekecil-kecilnya, dan kenyataan bahwa kita begitu kaya untuk terus bisa berbagi dengan sesama?Maka ini juga lah yang menjadi salah satu semangat terbesar gue di tahun ini. Masih bisa berbagi, salah satunya melalui kata-kata.Jadi, seperti apa semangatmu untuk menjalani hidup ini? Apa yang bisa kamu mulai di awal tahun ini? Mari berbagi :)A man said “I want Happiness.”The key to Happiness is simply remove “I”, because that’s ego. Then remove “want”, that’s desire.See? Now you are left with only Happiness.

    كتابي درباره مرگ... و همزمان درباره زندگي..راستش عليرغم تعريفاتي كه ازش شنيده بودم بعضي جاها واقعا حوصله‌م سرميرفت از خوندنش... اما جملات زيبايي هم داشت كه تا مدتها ميتونه فكر آدم رو درگير خودش كنه.. كلا كتاب خوبي بود..... داستان درباره يك موج كوچك در آبهاي اقيانوس است. دوران خوشي را تجربه مي‌كند. از باد و هواي تازه و پاك بهره مي‌برد. تا اينكه چشمش به موجهاي ديگري مي‌افتد كه جلوتر از او به ساحل مي‌كوبند و متلاشي مي‌شوند.موج مي‌گويد: آه خداي من! چه وحشتناك است. ببين چه سرنوشتي انتظارم را ميكشد!كمي بعد، موج ديگري از راه مي‌رسد. موج اولي را مي‌بيند. غمگين به نظر مي‌رسد. به او مي‌گويد: چرا اينقدر غمگيني؟موج اولي مي‌گويد: متوجه نيستي؟ همه ما متلاشي خواهيم شد. همه ما موجها، قرار است كه نيست شويم. وحشتناك نيست؟ موج دومي مي‌گويد: نه. متوجه نيستي! تو موج نيستي! تو بخشي از اين اقيانوس هستي!...-درباره جمله روي سنگ قبرم تصميم گرفتم!-علاقه‌اي به سنگ قبر ندارم. حالا به چه تصميمي رسيديد؟-به ذهنم اين جمله رسيد: «آموزگاري تا لحظه آخر!»لحظه‌اي مكث كرد تا حرفش را بگيرم.-آموزگاري تا لحظه آخر. به نظرت خوب است؟-مي‌گويم بله، خيلي خوب است...(يك آموزگار بر ابديت اثر مي‌گذارد... و هرگز نمي‌تواند بگويد كه نفوذش در كجا متوقف مي‌شود...

    I'm ashamed to own that I've read this. All I can say is: I did it for a good cause. That is, to promote reading in general (for a library talk). Mawkishly sentimental (here I am, trying to wipe off the stale stench of yesterday's coffee mornings) and terribly trite. Any person leaning to the left should, or would, recognise what Mitch is talking about. It isn't that Morrie is talking shit. He isn't. However, I think it's terribly ironic that such a venture (it screams "self-help" and "it will touch you!") has been undertaken by Mitch. I bet ol' Morrie is really angry now. It's like encouraging capitalism by using Marx.... The stuff in there, about wanting money etc, it's all in Marx....Here's my tip: ditch the book and either meet Morrie (impossible) or read Marx or any other Marxist (recommended). Even Morrie's essays presumably, if available, would probably be a good read. It's Mitch that's the problem, the money-grubbing critter that he is. PS as an aside it's sad to note how things that start off really radical get co-opted in the most tragi-comic ways possible...

    Tuesdays with Morrie is about death, but what we learn about is much more than the loss of dying but it is about love and friendship. Mitch Albom met with his dying mentor once a week and rediscovered in his last months a person he had lost contact with. This is a tale of life, even if we have to die. For those dealing with any kind of loss, I recommend Tuesdays with Morrie, a story of someone that was able to deal relatively well with the devastation of ALS. When I read it, I had just lost my father from this terrible disease, and reading it was beautiful, comforting, and touching.“The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.” “Be compassionate," Morrie whispered. And take responsibility for each other. If we only learned those lessons, this world would be so much better a place."He took a breath, then added his mantra: "Love each other or die.”

    I have been hearing about this book for many years and when I came across it at work yesterday I thought I would take a look. Once I started reading I found it very hard to put away.I finished Tuesday with Morrie tonight and spent a good part of it crying my heart out. This book touch me in away that I never thought possible and will take the lesson away that Morrie told Mitch:1) Love your family and friend.2) Don't be afraid to show your emotional side to people. 3) Live your life and never hold on to hate or pain.4) Don't get taking in my what's hot know and the need to have the news thing.I looking forward to reading more books by Mitch Albom and will be buying my own copy of Tuesday with Morrie for my own library collection.

    “The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.” I love this book so much.This is the first time i really want to just go buy a book and give it as a gift to others. HahaSo grateful i finally picked this one up.Honestly, i didn’t expect it to be this good. Turns out It touches my heart. While reading, It’s like you’re sitting, listening and learning from Morrie as well. It’s easy to get into the story and be connected with.Those are valuable time Mitch (the author) felt spending with his beloved coach and so i, while reading it, feel just the same.It’s kinda like a simple story but one that we’re all need the most.This book covers all the major things in life that matters and i’m so grateful for the author to writing and sharing the story with us.I’d say this book’s so meaningful it warms my heart. It teaches me and reminds me of some important things in life. So beautiful and valuable. I cant help but love and want to thank Morrie as well. ❤️

    This book was very enlightening. I enjoyed Morrie's perspectives on life and death. I hope that I can take a little bit of his attitude and apply it in my own life. This was a quick read and so worth my time. I was very touched.

    Tuesdays with Morrie is like a reality TV show in that the characters and conversations are biographical; the conversations with Morrie were recorded. In the book, a student accidentally learns that his favorite professor is dying (16 years after graduating college) from ALS. Because dying from ALS is protracted, Morrie gets to philosophize about living, and the student is once again a student. We become Morrie's students too. This time the course is not sociology but life itself. The book contains Morrie's wisdom as he ponders what's really important in life while at the edge of death. Old people used to be revered for their wisdom. These days, youth is revered and old people are just broken down bodies. This book is about being dazzled by the wisdom of an older man. Many times we are. For example, one of Morrie's gems is, "Death ends a life but not a relationship." All of us speculate what life is about, what our purpose is in it and what is truly important. This book provides one set of answers. What keeps us reading given we know how the book will end? We're all on a course to death's door and at the end we'd all like to say that we lived a life that was well spent. So, we read in order to benefit from Morrie's wisdom.There's no plot or drama; just a series of 14 interviews with Morrie before he passes. Each interview covers a different side of life, e.g., money, relationships, and common life mistakes we all tend to make.Over the course of the book, we fall in love with Morrie's courage and positivism in the face of the horrific, debilitating effects of ALS. Because he is face to face with the certainty of death, each day he's more alive--until his body simply gives out. We grieve with the student over Morrie's passing and feel better having known him. Each reader takes away a different collection of Morrie's gems to use in his/her own life. Morrie wanted to be known and remembered. He and his wisdom are. Death did end Morrie's life but not our relationship with him.

    Of all the glorious books out there my school could have picked for ninth grade literature class...In the words of Marcus Aurelius, "Despise not death, but welcome it, for nature wills it like all else." That’s one significant message Mitch Albom tries to convey to us readers in this emotional ride. ‘Tries’ not quite being the key word, but even so, eliciting only limited success. More on that later ahead. Tuesdays With Morrie depicts the moving relationship between the author and his former professor, Morrie Schwartz. It delves into the strong bond they begin to develop over time, as Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift with the universe… (ooooooh)The book circulates around various sentimental themes: love, family, friends, relationships, happiness and death, expressed through Morrie’s personal experience. In terms of language and style of writing, Mitch likes to keep it simplistic and casual, so to say, but maintains that sombre mood surrounding his teacher’s demise. We can see that he’s supportive of him and his ideals, curious to learn more. But it’s hard to forget about the tragedy that is bound to come, is it not? Some readers will become attached to Morrie and mourn over his departure, but the hopes he gives them from his teachings is enough to satisfy and not leave you in an emotional wreck. Notice how I say some and not all— now despite the generally morbid theme concerning Morrie’s impending death, the presence of aphorisms and anecdotes manage to make the situation more acceptable and less heartbreaking. Mr. Albom successfully lightens the mood throughout the book, but unfortunately ends up overdoing it a bit (okay, a lot). At least in my opinion. Now this is where the problems begin to sprout.The way Morrie finds the best in his sufferings and shares his knowledge of the world should make us experience the urge to adapt that into our own lifestyle. Granted, that impulse might stay there for a couple days, but it utterly fails to leave a permanent mark upon me. The whole plotline is presented in such a drastically sappy manner that it makes you feel like you’re reading a compilation of those cheesy motivational wall decors everyone detests in the form of a 192-paged, overly hyped ‘bestseller.’ In his attempt to avoid a depressing atmosphere, Mitch overflows his novel with excessive words of wisdom imparted through a rare 79-year old; words that I’m sure all of us have heard one too many times, and presented in a rather unoriginal fashion. So why should this spontaneously change our views on living any differently? I am well aware of the fact that this was published over a decade ago, and not having read many -or any- other similar non-fictional books along this vein, I wouldn’t really know if Tuesdays was a burst of something fresh back in its day. But even if it wasn’t a considered a cliché when it was first released, the fact that we are expected to finally understand the deep meanings of life and have it create an impact is far beyond unrealistic. What I did understand was that the criticality of this novel stems from Albom’s desire for his audience to think about and learn from the piece (like so many others). Alas, his intentions to bestow a load of inspiration upon us only resulted in making you eat it up, but not fully digest it.In conclusion, I wouldn’t recommend this particular book for anyone facing troubles in their life (aka everyone), but who knows? Maybe I’m just an extremely pessimistic critic over the issue and this jumble of typical, wise quotes might end up inspiring you, if only just a tad bit. Being an avid reader of fantasy books, it is only once in a blue moon that I find myself indulging in a spiritual book such as this one, but it saddens me to say that Tuesdays With Morrie has turned out to be one of the least influential books I’ve read among others. (Why yes, this is, in fact, my school essay because I'm too lazy to rant over it again Goodreads style :P)

    "I looked at him. I saw all the death in the world. I felt helpless."This book broke me. It was raw, thought provoking, heart breaking and real. Such a simple concept, a young man caught up in his busyness and business, competing to be the best in his job finds out that his old college professor is sick. And so begins a tale of regular meetings between Mitch and his old professor - Morrie. I know this book wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but anything that makes me stop and think for a while and even tear up is what I love about reading. As a memoir, you don't have to agree with everything they discuss, it's just beautiful to hear thoughts from someone facing the end and to be reminded of our own humanity and fleeting lives. This book touched me, what else can I say?

    Okay. I've been familiar with this book ever since my high school days. This title was kind of popular so almost everyone wanted to read this. Unfortunately, during those times of buying, borrowing, and talking about Tuesdays with Morrie, I was the odd one who didn't like reading rising-to-fame/talk-of-the-town books. IDK, I guess it was a culture I personally developed. Don't ever ask me the magic word 'why' coz honestly, even I had no idea. Anyways, that was before. Just leave the past behind so no one's gonna get confused, sad or angry whatsoever. :PPI decided to finally read this book after so many years of knowing just the title of it. My main reason was just out-of-curiosity-thingyAnd to be honest, I wasn't disappointed nor felt sorry for myself for wasting my time on reading this. For me, this is a good read. I enjoyed it and at the same time, it inspired me.I really thought this sucks. Well, since it's kind of popular I already figured out that there would be somehonestly, I don't understand you people who wouldn't appreciate this book. call me shallow-minded IFDC!! It's mah opinion anyway. I wouldn't feel ashamed admitting that reading this made me cry. This book taught me to appreciate life, to understand death and the importance of developing strong bonds with people. Morrie is one of those ideal professors who wouldn't just teach you lessons by means of words, but also with experiences and compassion.

    The novel Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom is a must read. This book is amazing from start to finish. I loved how he used foreshadowing to make the reader knew what he meant. This book had many themes for all the thematic statements (Loss, Physical Affection, Greed, compassion, and Modesty). For example, you get stronger from every loss. Mitch lost his friend Morrie and he went on to write a book about him. The quality of this story was outstanding. At parts it was very emotionable. For example, on pg. 189, it states, “Morrie stopped breathing. And he was gone.” This was a huge part in the book because Morrie, Mitch’s teacher, mentor, and coach had just died. Overall, I loved this book. I would recommend this to any one who is going through loss.

    درسته که سه‌شنبه‌ها با موری از لحاظ ادبی و کیفیت محتوای اندیشه برای مخاطب خاص مثل شوخی به نظر می‌رسه؛ اما برای مخاطب عام، اون کسی که ازت می‌پرسه «من کتابخون نیستم، یه کتاب بهم معرفی می‌کنی که جذبم کنه و باعث شه فکر هم بکنم؟»، می‌تونه پیشنهاد بهتری از لاطائلات کوئیلو یا رمان‌های زرد عاشقانه باشه. باید به این قبیل کتاب‌ها احترام گذاشت، ولی به طور کامل تاییدشون نکرد.

    «بپذیرید که گذشته هرچه بوده گذشته، گذشته را انکار نکنید»الان که این ریویو رو مینویسم 4 روز از تموم کردن کتاب گذشته و هنوز فکرم درگیرشه. شاید همین جمله برای ریویوی کتاب کافی باشه، اما خب من معمولا آدم پر حرفی‌ام.سه‌شنبه‌ها با موری رو توی گروه کتابخوانی و با باقی دوستان خوندم. برخی از دوستان چند صفحه اولش رو خوندن و جذب نشدن و بد و بیراه گفتن و چند نفر هم تمومش کردن ولی چندان راضی نبودن. بعضی هم نیمه تموم گذاشتنش، اما من از اولش احساس می‌کردم این کتاب یه چیزی داره. حرف اصلی کسایی که از کتاب ناراضی بودن، این بود که کتاب خیلی شعاریه. همینجا بهتره تکلیف رو روشن کنم. آره، سه‌شنبه‌ها با موری یک کتاب شعاریه. اما همینجا هم لازمه یه چیز دیگه اضافه کنم: کی گفته شعار چیز بدیه؟ما آدمایی هستیم که شعار دور و برمون رو گرفته، شعارایی که هیچ وقت هیچ جا نمودش رو نمی‌بینیم، اونقدر از شعار اشباع شدیم که کلا قیدش رو زدیم و فکر می‌کنیم بده. اما کی اینطور گفته؟ شعار اصلا بد نیست. اینکه یه افراط به تفریط منجر بشه، بده. سه‌شنبه‌ها با موری یک کتاب شعاریه ولی به نظرم همه ما هر از چند گاهی به اینجور کتابا نیاز داریم. به قول یکی از دوستام ما همه زندگیمون رو روی شعار می‌‍سازیم!البته انکار نمی‌کنم که کتابا زمان خاص، سن خاص، شرایط روحی خاص یا ترکیبی از اینا رو لازم دارن تا به دلمون بشینن و من فکر می‌کنم زمان مناسبی با موری آشنا شدم. توی همین 4 روزی که از تموم کردنش گذشته ، ذهنم همش درگیرشه و همش دارم نمودهاش رو توی زندگیم می‌بینم و چی جز این میتونه نهایت ارزش یک کتاب رو نشون بده؟ موری به من یاد داد که به هر چیزی جور دیگه نگاه کنم، که پول همه چیز نیست، که مرگ درست بغل گوشمه و اینکه واقعا به کجا چنین شتابان؟ اثرات کوتاه مدت این کتاب روی من محسوسه ولی فکر می‌کنم تاثیرات بلند مدتش خیلی بیشتر از اینا باشه. البته این چیزیه که زمان مشخص می‌کنه.البته به نثر کتاب میشه ایراداتی هم وارد کرد مثل اینکه ریتم کتاب برخی جاها کند میشه یا موری بعضی نکته‌ها رو چندین و چند بار تکرار می‌کنه که یه کم آزاردهنده است. با این حال احساس می‌کنم نمره 4 نمره قابل قبولی برای «سه‌شنبه‌ها با موری» باشه.«باید به اندازه کافی قوی باشی که اگر تشخیص دادی فرهنگ به وظایفش عمل نمی‌کند، خریدار متاع آن نباشی»پ.ن: اون بخشی که در مورد مرگ مادرش و درجواب مجری تلویزیون گفت بعد این همه سال از مرگ مادرش هنوز متآلمه خیلی تکونم داد. خیلی خوب بود.

    More of a 3.5, really.I'll start by saying that my one real issue with this book was that there wasn't much terribly original thinking within it. I definitely wanted more of a 'Wow, I never thought about it that way' feeling from Morrie's philosophies, and while it's hard to argue with anything he says it didn't feel like anything I hadn't heard from somewhere else before. Something probably by Disney.In general, the book is well done. I liked the characters and found the story and the language very readable. At times I felt like a fly on the wall listening in on a Tuesday conversation and I liked that. Most importantly I didn't get bored.From what I learned in reading this, I get the sense that it's the kind of thing Morrie would have wanted left behind in his stead and that's the best thing about this book. It felt like a more than adequate tribute, and I felt like I had gotten to know Morrie enough to be able to make that judgment. It's not overly emotional or sappy or pulling relentlessly on the reader's heartstrings, and it doesn't have to. It is a short and sweet reminder of the important things, a gentle prod in the direction of what matters, and it doesn't pretend to be anything else.
