STORY (true) - This is a wonderful story about two men, a teacher and a student, who have reunited after many years. Morrie is an old man withering away from ALS, and he had been Mitch's favorite teacher in college. Morrie wants Mitch to write his final thesis and to share Morrie's philosophy of life with the world (which has happened...the book is a best seller printed in many languages.)
There are lots of lessons to be learned from this book. Bottom line is that, as he lay dying, Morrie was able to more clearly realize what is important in life. Money, possessions and social status are worthless. Normal days doing things you enjoy with people you love are priceless. The book jumps back and forth between two time lines. The first is Mitch and Morrie's past relationship as teacher/student. The second is Mitch's visits to Morrie's bedside - every Tuesday - as they talk about Morrie's life and what he has learned from it. Mitch taped their meetings for further reference, so at the end of the book the listener is treated to a few actual discussions with Morrie's actual voice.
PERFORMANCE - Mitch performs his own work and does a great job. I got a little teared up at his performance of Morrie's struggling, breathless words towards the end of his life.
OVERALL - Very good book which will make you think about your life's choices and priorities. Well-presented and not so long as to get boring. No cursing, only inspiration. Highly recommended.
