Author Mitch Albom has captured the essence of why we should all make time to seek out and gather valuable wisdom from the powerful “mentors” in our lives. In this inspirational bestseller Tuesdays With Morrie, the author is sharing his spiritual mentor Morrie Schwartz with all of us.
This best selling book contains many life lessons – finding balance, seeking out a mentor, appreciating what’s really important in life, using talents wisely and making time to love unconditionally. This true story of a mentor/mentee relationship has inspires millions of readers to remember the important mentors in our own lives – ones that helped us to reflect upon making our own lives better.
Tuesdays With Morrie has the power to make each us reflect back to those wise mentors who have passed through our own lives. Ones that as an adult we now wish we’d listen more carefully to or asked more questions of or spent more time with. Mentors come in all shapes and sizes – grandparents, favorite teachers, coaches and parents – those special people who are willing to share life’s wisdom with us.
Tuesdays With Morrie was written by Detroit Free Press sports writer Mitch Albom about his former college professor Morrie Schwartz. After seeing Morrie on Nightline and realizing that Morrie is suffering from ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and is dying, Mitch decides to seek out and spend time with the mentor with whom he’d lost contact.
The two decide to tape record and collaborate on a book that will share Morrie’s wisdom and philosophy of life, death and dying. What began as a book to help pay for Morrie’s medical expenses soon became a labor of love for both.
Mitch and Morrie spent every Tuesday together talking about life, love, purpose, ambition, meaning and so much more. Writing this book gave Morrie a purpose for living and for Mitch it was a wake up call to look at the legacy he is leaving with his own life. This is a powerful and touching book with lessons and “ah’s” for each of us to ponder.
To me, this book reinforces the power of having a trusted mentor. That wise person in your life who encourages you to grow, come out of your comfort zone and live the best life possible. Sometimes, this book reminds us, we are all so busy doing that we forget to “be.”
Tuesday’s With Morrie was on the New York Times Bestseller List for 205 consecutive weeks and for good reason. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to improve and empower their lives – Mitch’s mentor Morrie has powerful life lessons for all of us.
Personal Note: I wrote this review in 2009 – it is still one of favorite personal development books.
