Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie is an inspiring book about how people should value the precious time everyone has to live.Tuesdays with Morrie is the a story of a professor Morrie, his former student Mitch, and their final “class” with each other as Morrie is in the final stages of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Mitch taped their discussions together and transferred them into the book while also throwing in college memories of Morrie and himself. While transferring this, he lastly put in other important moments and quotes that add to the impact of this eye opening book.

I really enjoyed reading this book, because not only was it medically in depth, but it was a vivid detailed book that made you reflect upon yourself and your life. Not only did it pursuade me to review my life style choices, but also the impact someone can have on others, even strangers! This book also showed the destructioning that the disease ALS does to the body, and it did it in a way that made me understand very well! I personally thought this book was going to be a boring lecture on how to live better, but it did it in such a concise way I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Just like everything else in the world there were some flaws (in my opinion). In the book, while Mitch was interviewing Morrie he was also following a story on a soon to be famous sports player life. This, at times was very confusing, and though Mitch also got a lesson from the sports player's decisions in life, it still would be the great piece it is without that section. My favorite part during the book, is how Morrie is so wise and insightful, even when nearing death. His quotes of life can be understood be just about anyone, and it cann hit home with lots of people. Overall, I suggest this to EVERYONE who can read. Its a short read, and honestly life altering.
