BOOK REVIEW TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE

Book dedicates itself to a conversation between Morrie, a retired college professor, and his old student Mitch. Morrie discovers he is dying. And Mitch who became a journalist began meeting his lovable professor during his last days on earth.

Mitch was living a mediocre and unhappy life. He seems to be a work alcoholic, does not give time to his wife. During the initial days, Mitch occasionally visited Morrie and teacher-student talks could last for hours. Afterwards, it became a habit to visit Morrie every Tuesday.

The conversation covers vital things in life such as friendship, loss, love, health and so on. As days passed Morrie became weaker. Mitch helplessly saw his professor slipping into the arms of death. On the fourteenth day, Morrie died. In the end, Mitch regretted, to have spent more Tuesdays with Morrie.

Book changed the lives of millions of people. It captures the sentiments of a dying man, every word is golden teaching. The reader can picture himself as Mitch, struggling to find the meaning of life.
 

  • LESSONS LEARNT FROM TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE

    For me the most memorable part was when Morrie Schwartz discusses things that we take for granted- love, relations, family and friends. He say "Love wins, love always wins". We tend to create lot of differences on countless parameters. But we are all alike and we must live in harmony. For our betterment. 

    We tend to follow the path setup by society. It is good to socilise,but we must create our own culture, our way of doing things that can make us alive. Choosing things that we like to do and  people we love. It can make us a like which is more fulfilling.


      

    WHY YOU SHOULD READ TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE

    We all are in different phases of life. We have different aspirations.  But we share a common end. And what else can be more truthful than last words of a dying man. So far we have been trained to survive. Lets learn to live. No doubt it was a bestseller. It was really a like the subtitle "an old man, a young man and life's greatest lessons."

  1. Have read this. Gem of a book. Each of Morrie's session touched an inportant theme of life and showed a way how to deal with it. We all are in dire need to imbibe Morrie's trademark statement- 'When you learn how to die, you learn how to live'.
