Tuesdays with Morrie - Wonderful Compilation of Life Lessons

Tuesdays with MorrieTuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It has been a long time since I came across a book, as powerful and inspiring as, 'Tuesdays with Morrie.' Author, Mitch Albom, compiles all the lessons, he received from his teacher - Morrie - in this book. His words are motivating, soothing, and uplifting.

Mitch is lost in a busy corporate world when he hears about his beloved teacher's condition. Morrie is diagnosed with ALS - brutal, unforgiving illness of the neurological system. Mitch describes the deteriorating condition of Morrie, throughout the book. Families, who suffered the loss of a loved one - or ones who are still going through this painful phase - will go on an emotional journey while reading this book.

Morrie does not lose his spirit even till his last breath. He shares his wisdom with Mitch. In our fast pacing life, we forget to appreciate the people, whom we love. Morrie explains to Mitch that we should not run behind money. He tells him that now when he is closer to death, he relates to other people's sufferings as if these were his own. He cries while reading about the pain others are going through.

His lessons are thought-provoking. I have summed up most of his preachings in my blog: Live Life “Morrie” Way!

Mitch supports his preachings with wonderful explanations. In his own words: if you're trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down at you anyhow. And if you're trying o show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.

This is just an instance of the beauty of Mitch's magnificent thoughts. Readers, who enjoy going on an inspirational voyage with a book, must read it. Mitch did not write the book that pushes down the author's beliefs down the readers' throats, rather, he narrates his conversation with his teacher in a capturing flow of words. Also, he remembers a few incredible moments with his teacher and presents them in the book; these reminiscences helped me in feeling more familiar with Morrie and Mitch.

I encourage everyone to read this book; this book should work as a guide whenever we feel lost in our long struggle - called life.
