Who am I really? What have I done? What is important and meaningful to me? What difference does it make that I have lived? What does it mean to be truly human, and where am I on that scale?
Morrie Schwartz, the beloved subject of the classic, multimillion-copy number one bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, explores these questions and many more in this profound, poetic, and poignant masterpiece of living and aging joyfully and creatively. Later life can be filled with many challenges, but it can also be one of the most beautiful and rewarding passages in anyone’s lifetime. Morrie draws on his experiences as a social psychologist, teacher, father, friend, and sage to offer us a road map to navigate our futures.

Let The Wisdom of Morrie be your guide in exploring deep questions of how to live and how to love.
“Sociology professor and therapist Morrie Schwartz’s area of expertise was mental health, especially mental health as related to aging. Unlike Mitch Albom’s popular Tuesdays with Morrie, with its focus on the personal values of his subject (yes, this is that Morrie), Schwartz’s own writing’s focus is how people of any age, but especially in the last decades of life, can find meaning and joy despite decline, loss, and the prospect of death.”

“In both deeply personal and teacherly ways, Morrie describes the loss and challenges we may face as we age and guides us toward a place of acceptance and hope. His strongest goal in aging was to become the best person he could be, and he encourages us to do the same. This book shines with an honesty and realness that will leave readers grateful for their visits with Morrie.”
