What You'll Learn:
A successful but dissatisfied sports journalist, Mitch Albom, reunites with his former teacher of 16 years, a retired sociology professor on the brink of death named Morrie Schwartz. Over a series of Tuesday meetings, they rekindle their teacher-student relationship and friendship. While suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease, Morrie dedicates his final days to teaching Albom about the nature of love, the meaning of death, and how to be “fully human.” As Albom sees it, Tuesdays with Morrie is his last thesis paper for Morrie course, where he recounts their friendship and the lessons Morrie has modeled. With nearly 18 million copies sold in 48 languages, Tuesdays with Morrie is one of the best-selling memoirs of all time.
