#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A special 20th anniversary edition of the beloved book that changed millions of lives—with a new afterword by the author

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.

For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final “class”: lessons in how to live.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.


  • Tuesdays w/ Morrie

    By leherr_
    The most heartwarming, moving book I've read in a LOONNG time. The simplistic nature of both the content and the literary voice resemble a diary rather than a novel. As a reader, I grew attached to Morrie, and found many similarities between Mitch & I. wish I could experience this book again with a set of fresh eyes!
  • Absolutely Life Changing

    By ChrisEdwardsNow
    I am not a book reader but I’ve decided since my wife had to read this book for her class so that we take the journey with her. I am a dialysis patient and I’m in the process of writing my own book. The only other book that has had the power to keep my attention other than the Bible and pull on the cord strings of my heart is Tuesdays with Morrie. I love this book. . PCE

  • Tuesday’s with Morrie

    By Mady1217
    Hold on while I wail like a one year old child whose parents just left for date night. This book was so touching and enlightening all at the same time. I don’t think I could have read a better book. It is definitely going to one I read many times throughout life. I know I will walk away with a new message each time. I’m 100% sure I would have paid $50 for this book and not $3. If I could have rated it any higher I would have.

  • So Inspiring and Motivating!

    By Dwc211
    Reading “Tuesday’s With Morrie” was quite moving. I couldn’t;t put the book down after I started and read it all in one day! Morrie truly makes you think about life differently and is worth your time.
  • Rethink about the meaning of life

    By Y.Song1416
    It’s a good book that makes me rethink about your life and around. It’s funny when you hear about “think”. But you never realize or even remember since when you stop thinking. Every day is the same day, you follow your habits, day in and day out. That’s when we stop growing and accept what it is in a negative way.
