What Readers Are Saying…

Tuesdays with Morrie

“Every page of this beautiful moving little book shines with the warmth of unembarrassed love.”
—Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People

“Sometimes if you take a second look around you’ll notice we are amongst angels. Only a man–no, a saint–like Morrie Schwartz could take his own impending death and teach us how to live. After reading Tuesdays with Morrie you’ll understand that class is never dismissed.”
—Jeff Daniels

“I promised Mitch Albom on the phone that if I were lucky enough to receive this that I’d thank him for laying the bricks with that magnificent story that he wrote. And I do. He laid the bricks. It’s all him.”
—Jack Lemmon, in his Emmy acceptance speech in 2000 for Best Actor in Tuesdays With Morrie (1999)

“A beautifully written book of great clarity and wisdom that lovingly captures the simplicity beyond life’s complexities.”
M. Scott Peck, M.D., author of The Road Less Traveled

“The book is an incredible treasure. One’s sense of our mortality is a great teacher and source of enlightenment. To have a teacher share this experience provides us with profound wisdom and insight. I laughed, cried and ordered five copies for our children.”
Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles

“A wonderful book, a story of the heart told by a writer with soul.”
The Los Angeles Times

“As sweet and nourishing as fresh summer corn…the book begs to be read aloud.”
USA Today

“Mitch Albom’s book is a gift to mankind.”
Philadelphia Inquirer

Ask anyone who knew him and they’ll likely tell you that Morrie Schwartz made more of an impression on them then Michael Jordan, Bill Gates and Jodie Foster combined. Tuesdays with Morrie is more than just a dying man’s last words. It is an inspirational recount of a man’s life — a man whose passion for the human spirit has continued to live long after his last breath.
