This is an old book my brother left at home when he flies to German to pursue his studies. He gave it to my sister says “Read this, the book is good”. I only knew about the book after around 1 month he went; accidentally.

Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie

The story is about how a young man, Mitch, really looked up and respect his Professor when he was studying up until the last breath of the Professor, Morrie. Before his death, Mitch makes frequent visit to his home every Tuesday and learn about life, where Professor Morrie teaches him things he wont get in any school in this world.

The content of the book is like, chicken soup for your soul. Covering most topics in our life such as love and death, it moves us to think mostly about the things we missed throughout our journey in our life. When you flip through the contents page, it’s clearly stated there the title of the topic they will cover for that particular chapter. I wouldn’t normally skip pages when I read so I guess flipping the contents was like; getting the idea of the whole book. And by knowing the chapters itself, it makes me want to read more.

I especially love the way the writer brings us from the beginning of the story to the end, how he juggles them from previous and present events. And how un-bias he wrote about our real life that most of the times we tend to forget; sometimes we remember with no particularly reason. Most of all, what makes me think this is a MUST READ book is because of the words that came out from Morrie’s character; such touching and true words.

Quoted from chapter 4:

“Once you learn how to die you’ll learn how to live”
