Tuesdays With Morrie” is the heartwarming story of Albom’s relationship with his college mentor, Morrie Schwartz, with whom Albom has lost touch for 16 years. Upon seeing him on the “Nightline” program – talking to Ted Koppel about what it was like to die from Lou Gehrig’s disease – Albom was both horrified and ashamed. He called his old teacher, flew to Boston for a reunion, and began a series of weekly visits, rekindling their loving teacher-student relationship while tackling a larger subject in their final “class”: the meaning of life.

Tuesdays With Morrie details those Tuesday visits, and the shared reflections on love, work, marriage, envy, children, forgiveness, community and aging, all seen though the eyes of a wise old man who was down to his last days.

The book has been embraced by readers around the world. Oprah Winfrey featured Albom on her show and fell so in love with the book , she optioned it for a TV movie, which is scheduled for May of 1999. Albom and the book were also featured in People magazine, the Today Show, The Late Show with Tom Snyder, and two special episodes of “Nightline.”

Personal opinion:
Tuesdays with Morrie adalah salah satu buku paling berkesan yang pernah gw baca. Buku ini adalah true story pengalaman si penulis, Mitch Albom, melewatkan waktu-waktu terakhir Morrie sebelum Morrie meninggal.

Mitch selalu melewatkan setiap Selasa bersama Morrie dan selalu ada topik berbeda setiap minggu untuk didiskusikan. I was deeply touched by their discussion.

Dibanding buku kedua Mitch “Five People You Met in Heaven”, I personally recommend “Tuesday…” rather than “Five…”
