I watched the movie a long time ago. I think it was one of those Hallmark specials on Sundays. My older sister had read the book and recommended it…and a few other people had too. I finally got around to adding it onto my book list. This is based on the true story of the author and his old college professor. The professor, Morrie, was the author Mitch’s favorite professor…so much so that he took all his classes, although he didn’t even major in the subject matter.They were reunited after Mitch saw a special interview with Ted Koppel about Morrie’s terminal disease. Meeting on Tuesdays, just like they did when Mitch was in college, Mitch’s view on life and its meaning changed. Seeing his “Coach” in the decaying state, but yet still able to appreciate life, Mitch’s priorities and thoughts shifted from success and fame to family and feelings. In the end, after reading this book, I think your views will change too. I’d like to read this book again, and this time note some of the things that Morrie has to say about certain life issues.Other reviews of Tuesdays with Morrie:
