|Tuesdays With Morrie : An Old Man, a Young Man, and the Last Great Lesson
|This true story about the love between a spiritual
mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters: it
reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant
mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would
it be like to look those people up again, tell how much they meant to us, maybe even
resume the mentorship?
|Plus, we meet Morrie Schwartz--a one of a kind professor, whom the
author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. And
finally we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a
terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all
about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch
Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility.
