Overview

Eddie tiene 83 años y trabaja en el parque de atracciones de una ciudad de provincias norteamericana. Ha pasado toda su vida en este lugar, a excepción de su participación en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, un episodio que le marcó profundamente. Su vida acaba de forma trágica al salvar a una niña que está a punto de ser atropellada por un coche de la montaña rusa. Eddie se encuentra ahora... en el cielo. El paraíso aparece como el lugar donde, por fin, entendemos el sentido de nuestra vida en la tierra. Así, Eddie se encuentra con las cinco personas que más han influido en su vida, de forma directa pero también indirecta, sin que él se diera cuenta. Y así surgen dos preguntas capitales: ¿De qué manera nuestra vida está ligada a la de gente que no conocemos? ¿Cómo influyen nuestras decisiones en la vida de otras personas?

Meet the Author

Mitch  Albom
Mitch Albom
Mitch Albom introduced the wisdom of a man named Morrie with the moving account of the time he spent with him before his death, Tuesdays with Morrie -- a #1 bestseller that became nothing less than a phenomenon. Albom followed up the blockbuster success of Morrie with several novels that took his inspirational message to new -- and bestselling -- heights. He has also penned sports-oriented nonfiction, and his popular newspaper columns have been collected into anthologies.

Biography

You might call Mitch Albom a jock-of-all-trades. Before becoming one of America's most beloved sport commentators and columnists, Albom was an amateur boxer, a nightclub singer and pianist, and a stand-up comedian. He is a nationally syndicated fixture of radio and print, and has been featured as an analyst on ESPN. He has covered college football and college basketball in two successful nonfiction books, and the best of his articles have been collected in a series of anthologies called Live Albom. However, what catapulted Albom into the literary limelight was the mega-selling 1997 memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie, his first book to sidestep sports altogether..

Tuesdays... is a moving account of Albom's reconnection with his old Brandeis professor and college mentor, Morrie Schwartz. After learning Schwartz had been stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, Albom sought him out in Boston, and throughout a long, harrowing year, they spent every Tuesday together. As he faced his inevitable death, Schwartz shared a lifetime of memories, regrets, fears, and philosophical insights with his former student. A story that could easily have toppled into maudlin sentimentality, the memoir succeeded in large part because of Albom's skillful writing. Published in 30 languages in 34 countries, the book remains an international bestseller.

In 2003, Albom forayed into fiction with The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the emotionally resonant story of an old man who dies, convinced his life has had no meaning -- only to discover that nothing could be further from the truth. It, too, scored a huge success for the author – as did his followup novel, For One Day More.

Good To Know

The Oprah Winfrey-produced version of Tuesdays with Morrie, starring Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria, won 4 Emmy Awards and was the most-watched TV movie of 1999.

Before Albom was a household name, he was known on the comedy circuit as the warm-up act for Gabe "Welcome Back Kotter" Kaplan.

Albom is an enthusiastic philanthropist, having founded two charitable programs, the Dream Fund and A Time to Help.

    Fabuloso

    Me encanto este libro. Me ha hecho reflexionar acerca de como debo de llevar mi vida. De que importante es estar bien con los demas para no tener que llegar a rendir cuentas despues de morir. Aprender a vivir cada momento de nuestra vida como si fuese el ultimo.
