THANK YOU for my advance copy. I didn’t know how any book could live up to Tuesdays with Morrie — but this one does. The life lessons, the descriptions, the feelings evoked when one reads it — are all one can ask of a writer. I was impatient to get to the actual eulogy — but also knew in my heart what that would mean. Thank you, Mitch, for pointing out that, in significant ways, we are all more alike than different. I hope this book, too, becomes “required reading” at universities. One of the most important requirements of changing one’s thinking is to become cognizant of one another’s upbringing, home life, beliefs, etc.
