Book Review: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
|Genre:||Memoir, Self Help|
|Book Name:||Tuesdays with Morrie|
Tuesdays with Morrie is neatly arranged in chapters and quips about the lessons of life. It closely describes the relationship between Morrie and the author Mitch. This is unlike the Self-Help books where the lessons are told first and then several examples are mentioned to explain the focus point.
Morrie must indeed be inspiring for the author to dedicate a complete book on him. However like all Self-Help books, I preferred to speed-read this book and finish it off in a dash.
Since this is a real life story, all those who came to know of Morrie (since he had a big list of friends, student and followers which incidentally, not many people command in our present times) will be touched and wanting to know more.
Recommended for those looking for Self Help books to find a meaning in their life and not be part of rat race.
Please note that I do not like Self Help books. Hence, my review is biased.
Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Perhaps, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as the years passed, the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, to ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, and receive wisdom for your busy life the way you once did when you were younger?
Mitch Albom got that second chance, rediscovering Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final ‘class’: lessons in how to live. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together.
