This book was simply wonderful. I like the fact that Morrie finally shows others what society really is today. I thought I was the only one who felt the world was corrupted. This book should be recommended for all students in middle and high school to read, to open their minds to things other than who's more popular, who's the best athelete or who's the best dress. Mitch, you did a great job!


This book had been use as one of finishing requirements for my social psychology class. It didn't only served as a source of grade for that course, but I can say that it changed the way I view life. I shared the book to someone I love who's facing some difficulties right now, and it made him realize about things. This book is very inspiring.

Im'a a seventh grader who just finished this book and it does teach a great lesson. I told my friends abotu the book and they too fell in love with the book. I like the book so much i named my kitten Morrie so when I call him, i remember the man who taught my friends, family and me a life lesson.

My daughter had to read this book during her exchange programme at NAU. She told me about it over the phone, as my best friend also suffered from ALS. When I visited my daughter last March, on the day we arrived we got the phone call from Holland that my friend had died that very same day. On a Tuesday...
Reading Morrie's account of how he coped with this terrible disease was a blessing in disguise. I used to be so angry, so furious that this horror was happening with my friend. My friend was not able any more at the end to express herself, to let people around her know what she was feeling, thinking. That's not typical of ALS, but in her case it even worsened her disease.
Morrie's life-lessons are a gift to us all. To be so ill, and at the same time to be so wise, if only that would happen to us all!

As required reading for a seminar on death and dying, I began reluctantly. Within minutes, the book was glued to my hand. The story is well illustrated, giving perfectly round characters and enough background information that I felt involved in the lives of Morrie and Mitch. This book also provides many life lessons and mantras to give hope to people living in grief.

good stuff

What a delightful book full of old men, disease, medicinal marijuna, and of course mitch albom riding ponies. Amen to that. Read The GD Book!

It was one of the greatest booksI have read and I usually don't read these types of books. It really gives a diferent aspect on life.
