Book Review: Tuesdays with Morrie, an old man's lessons on life
Authored by Mitch Albom, the story is about a professor, Morrie, who is suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and is dying, and how in some of his last days, he imparts life's greatest lessons to one of his favorite students and friend Mitch Albom.

YOU MIGHT have come across a lot of self help books, Tuesdays with Morrie is not a self help book but still has some of the very important lessons on relationships, money, marriage, culture, status, death, and old age, etc.

Understandably, most of us have that one special teacher in our lives who is very close to our hearts, and why is that particular teacher is our favorite? Well, you might find the answer in the book.

The story has a lasting impact and leaves you to contemplate on whether or not have you been able to embrace each and every moment of your life. 

Tuesdays with Morrie falls under the genre of a non-fiction novel, and the story of this novel was adapted into a TV movie. The book also topped the New York Times Non-Fiction Bestsellers in 2000 after the book released in 1997.

Published by Random House, Schwartz's and Albom's conversations in the book cover themes such as communication, acceptance, values, love, happiness, and being open. This book is as relevant today as it was in the late 90s as it enlightens us how not to fall into the trap of popular culture, and instead create one's own culture - and be wary of our pre-occupation with what the media dishes out everyday.
