Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

This book is about the relationship between Mitch Albom and his mentor, Morrie Schwartz. And this book shall be their last thesis together.

You see Morrie have an incurable and terrible disease which eats him up bits by bit. It'sAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS). Morrie was Mitch Professor but they lost touch when he graduated.

One day, Mitch saw the news about Morrie and he contacted him. Henceforth this is the beginning of a journey by the two of them. Journey to learn about life and of course death.

This is the 2nd time am reading this book. The first time was when a friend presented me with this book when he got to know that am looking for this book. He is a fan of Hardcover book and have vast knowledge about book. He had collected quite a few copies of Tuesdays With Morrie, all in near brand new condition. He chase after Pay less Book Warehouse Sale.

The first time I read this book, it leaves me with a very strong impression. Shed some tears when Morrie dies.

On this second reading, I discovered something new. Page 92, Para 2 "This is part of what a family is about, not just love, but letting others know there's someone who is watching out for them. It is what I missed so much when my mother died - what I call your "spiritual security" - knowing that your family will be there watching out for you.Nothing else would give you that. Not money. Not fame."

In my opinion, this book is not to be read once only. This is a book that is to be read time and time again. It will give you insight when you read it at different stages of your life.

Definitely a must have in your bookshelves.

As I was getting my camera to snap a photograph of the book, I noticed a 3 legs spider crawling around on the table. Amazing. It's still alive and can move quite fast. I have not got the chance to focus the camera properly, it had disappeared.
