Awesome
A beautiful book by Mitch Albom....
The reader feels many emotions while reading this book, ranging from happiness to sadness, and more than likely, will be wiping away tears at the end. It makes the reader think about their own life and ponder aging, forgiveness, family, compassion, and mentors in life, just as Mitch Albom does during the course of the book.

"Tuesdays with Morrie"
This book is the wonderful lessons from experience. While I read it, I couldn't stop crying for Morrie, the main character. The ALS( Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) made Morrie couldn't do anything. However, through this disease, he could find himself, he could think far away. He knew what he really want to do. By reading this book, I had known a lot of things that I didn't think about before like we should forgive ourselves and others to make our lives better. If you want to find a good book to read and know, you shouldn't pass this one. The named of the amazing book is" Tuesdays with Morrie."

Questionable..
Some that don't like the book are scared of its lesson, Death is everywhere and they are afriad of dying. This book has touched me and brought back my past. It made me cry but i'm not scared of the path i lead. I'm ready at any moment. And you that are scared of its lesson, you're more scared than a 17 year old. This is a heart felt book that will open your eyes to new things.

Amazing Book
I’ve always wanted to read Tuesdays with Morrie but have never made the time to do so. I’m not much for reading though I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’ve heard it is quite a tear-jerker but, as I read it taught me many wonderful lessons and quite a few comical parts in it.

This book is about a time spent between a graduate and his teacher when the teacher becomes ill with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. Before Mitch, the graduate, spends time with Morrie, he shares what has been happening in his life and how he has been caught up too much in his work. He finds out that Morrie is ill as he is watching TV one night and decides to go and visit his old friend. The book then leads into the 14 different Tuesdays spent with Morrie and the many different life lessons that Mitch learns. Morrie teaches about regret, emotions, family, forgiveness, death, marriage, money, fear of aging and many other topics.

I love this sentence from the book. “He was intent on proving that the word ‘dying’ was not synonymous with ‘useless.’” It really shows that Morrie was not afraid of death and wanted to live out the remainder of his life positively. He wants to be a great influence to all those around him. He is a very grateful, loving, and caring man. The book is amazing. The lessons you learn will be things that you can take with you throughout your life and apply them each day. I really liked the chapters on self-pity, money, and marriage. Morrie is a very intelligent man that has lots of wisdom and the way that he reasons things really gets you thinking. I don’t like to read books but this has been one I have really enjoyed.

Another quote that really applied to me was, "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." I really feel the application in this is that we should all remember that we are children of our Heavenly Father. We have been commanded to love others, to be there as an influence in our community, and to develop our talents. This book in many ways is very Gospel oriented.

I didn’t really find anything that I disliked about this book. Like I said, it can be a tear-jerker, but the things that you will learn will greatly influence you. It’s great for Sunday reading. The lessons you learn are things that you can share with others throughout your life in helping other with their problems. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. You can never go wrong gaining more insight and wisdom on the issues we face daily.

Love Mitch Albom
I just finished reading Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom for the third time, which was an inspirational book to say the least. It's about one of Mitch's former professors who is dying Morrie, who Mitch learns lessons from. Truly inspiring, and heart-warming. Just a heads up, Mitch Albom has another non-fiction book coming out, Have A Little Faith. I came across the youtube video on his official youtube website, in which he reads the first few pages of the book, and I can tell already this is going to be an amazing book as well. Check out if you get the chance and I know you will enjoy it as much as I did!

You just have to go to YouTube and type in "Mitch Albom Have a Little Faith", its only 5 minutes long and so worth it!
