Book Review – Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom


Tuesdays With Morrie is a story about a professor who never stopped teaching and a student who traced the better path for life with his teacher. Morrie who is dying from ALS spends every Tuesday with his one of the most favorite students, Mitch Albom. Both reminisces old days and talks about life, death, love, grief, and the connection between the individual and its community.


Morrie Schwartz was a professor of Brandies University. He used to teach sociology and he was the single professor whose class nobody wants to miss, especially Mitch Albom. Morrie was very fond of Mitch who promised him to be in touch after the graduation. Though, soon after completing graduation, Mitch settled in Detroit as a sports writer and never saw Morrie again.

Sixteen years later when Mitch was completely consumed in the hustles of life, he saw his favorite professor, Morrie on ABC’s Nightline giving an interview to Ted Koppel. Then, Morrie was suffering from ALS sharing his experience of seeing death from so close.

This news hit hard to Albom and immediately traced his contact with his old professor. It was supposed to be some kind of reunion but then it turned into the lectures and this time the subject is ‘Life’. Morrie asked him to make a list of things he would like to know about life.

Mitch spent fourteen Tuesdays with his coach. They talked about love, life, aging, forgiveness, culture, family, and marriage. When Morrie talked about these complex topics with simple words, you could see the lucid picture of your ideal life painting in front of you. (At least I could)

During the voyage for finding the meaning of life, Mitch realized that despite his luxurious and busy life, he was never actually satisfied. Therefore, the quest for this satisfaction made him fly to Boston every Tuesday. He was concerned about Morrie’s worsening condition because of his deadly disease.

But, Morrie was determined to impart the knowledge of a life he gained to his student. He made sure that his death could give meaning to someone’s life.

The hardest part of reading Tuesdays With Morrie is its inevitable ending. Right from the beginning, you will know how the book is going to end. But still, you are going to cry and wish that maybe it could end in some other way.

It is impossible for me to jot down all the enlightening advice of Morrie in this review. But I will surely tell you the one which changed my life.

“The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

My Thoughts

Right after reading Tuesdays With Morrie, I felt so contented. Morrie’s wisdom had a different effect on me. I was at peace and all determined to imply these learnings in my life.

I seriously liked the way Morrie answered all the questions of his student in such a comprehensible and easy way. The questions which we ignore when we encounter them and whose answers can really simplify our lives.

It was really painful to read Albom’s description of Morrie’s health and how his body was paralyzing day by day. But at the same time, I was elated to see Mitch’s selfless efforts to make his professor feel good.

I have already read Tuesdays With Morrie twice and in no time soon I will re-read it. Because this book is my little abode to rejuvenate myself. Read this book and you will soon know what I am talking about.
