Publisher's Summary

It's been 10 years since Mitch Albom first shared the wisdom of Morrie Schwartz with the world. Now, 12 million copies later, in a new foreword, Mitch Albom reflects again on the meaning of Morrie's life lessons and the gentle, irrevocable impact of their Tuesday sessions all those years ago.

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient, and wise who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly 20 years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class": lessons in how to live.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

What the critics say

"Albom’s reading superbly balances his emotional attachment to Schwartz with the need to avoid sounding overly sentimental. While Albom’s delivery could not be better, perhaps the most important reason to listen is the actual recordings of Schwartz replayed at the end of the book." (AudioFile)

Wonderful reflection on life...

... and what should truly matter. Don't waste your time reading reviews. Instead, get this audiobook and reflect on your own life.

Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live

STORY (true) - This is a wonderful story about two men, a teacher and a student, who have reunited after many years. Morrie is an old man withering away from ALS, and he had been Mitch's favorite teacher in college. Morrie wants Mitch to write his final thesis and to share Morrie's philosophy of life with the world (which has happened...the book is a best seller printed in many languages.)

There are lots of lessons to be learned from this book. Bottom line is that, as he lay dying, Morrie was able to more clearly realize what is important in life. Money, possessions and social status are worthless. Normal days doing things you enjoy with people you love are priceless. The book jumps back and forth between two time lines. The first is Mitch and Morrie's past relationship as teacher/student. The second is Mitch's visits to Morrie's bedside - every Tuesday - as they talk about Morrie's life and what he has learned from it. Mitch taped their meetings for further reference, so at the end of the book the listener is treated to a few actual discussions with Morrie's actual voice.

PERFORMANCE - Mitch performs his own work and does a great job. I got a little teared up at his performance of Morrie's struggling, breathless words towards the end of his life.

OVERALL - Very good book which will make you think about your life's choices and priorities. Well-presented and not so long as to get boring. No cursing, only inspiration. Highly recommended.

Blown away by his grace

Simple, but powerful. Whenever I thought one of Maury's stories would go nowhere, he would deliver the final message. Each time, I was blown away by his grace under such sad circumstances. Mitch Albom was a great reader.

Excellent Story

I read the book years ago and remembered being very touched by the story. Now listening to it is like reliving the experience. When you think that it is a real story it moves you even more. Spectacular message, lovely tone and just a good way to spend some time during the day. I can recommend the book or the audiobook to anyone.

The Only Review I Have Ever Written

I purchased this book after several people had suggested it to me. Not people I had known, but rather customers of mine. One of my favorite questions to ask people is their favorite book / the book they would force the whole world to read if they could. After hearing this title mentioned several times I decided that it was time. And I would have to agree that all of society needs to read this. Absolutely phenomenal book with so much wisdom that I declare it to be a life changer.

After 15 years of audiobooks, this is still the best.

It's probably been over 10 years since I last listened to this book. I've aged over the years and times have changed. But the words and wisdom in this book are timeless and just as applicable now as when Morrie said them.

Narrator was amazing, and I loved the excerpts in the end about the book + actual recordings from the sessions so much. Thank you, Mitch, for sharing Morrie's story.
