Overview






For everyone who enjoyed the inspiration and wisdom of Morrie Schwartz in Mitch Albom's moving best-seller Tuesdays with Morrie, here is Morrie's own book, presenting the philosophies by which he triumphantly lived, even as he faced the end of his life.


For decades Morrie engaged his Brandeis University students in the importance of community and involvement in life. Ever the teacher, in his last year, as his battle with the fatal illness amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's Disease, gradually weakened him, he appeared on three memorable "Nightline" programs with Ted Koppel, simply titled "Morrie," and captivated millions of viewers across the country with his spirit and compassion.


Before he died, Morrie finished the manuscript for this book, which was originally titled Letting Go. He saw it as his greatest teaching opportunity. Whether you or a loved one is healthy or ill, young or old, there is invaluable wisdom here that can enrich your life. From "handling frustration" and "reaching acceptance" to "relating to others" and "being kind to yourself," Morrie's life-affirming insights help you take stock of where you are now and where you may want to be.


Morrie: In His Own Words will have a lasting impact on whoever reads it. It is Morrie's invaluable legacy to us all.


Morrie Schwartz taught sociology at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, for close to thirty-five years before retiring. He passed away in 1995.
