This novel tells the true story of retired sociology professor Morrie Schwartz and his relationship with his students. On his graduation, Mitch Albom, the narrator, tells his favorite professor, Morrie Schwartz, that he will keep in touch. However, Mitch doesn’t contact his professor until one night when he sees Morrie being interviewed on T.V.. It turns out that Morrie has developed ALS, a terminal disease, and is in a wheelchair. Mitch begins to visit his professor and soon realizes that, though he has grown remarkably, he still has a lot to learn from Morrie.

I was looking for a book to read and upon googling, this book was suggested as one that would change your life. This was a very touching book for me. A man is already dying but he decided that he would take this opportunity to continue to teach. He was already an exceptional teacher before.

How many books made you cry when you finish it?

When you are about to die, your thinking would be different. Your focus would definitely shifted to other things. Which are more important things. Your family, your relationship with them, the nature. You want to make things right.
