This true story about the love between a spiritual mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters: it reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would it be like to look those people up again, tell them how much they meant to us, maybe even resume the mentorship? Plus, we meet Morrie Schwartz--a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. And finally we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility. --Gail Hudson

    墨瑞教授在得知生命所剩無幾之後,漸漸明瞭了生命真實的意義與存在的價值,坦然面對自己即將死亡的事實,並且積極在最後留下些什麼給他認識與不認識的人,在生命的最後仍不放棄傳播愛的想法,用詼諧的態度面對:死亡並不可怕,這只是自然的過程。

    L' ho trovato decisamente un gran bel libro (complimenti all' insegnante di mia figlia che l' ha assegnato per l' esate e me l& ha fatto conoscere)
    Da leggere senza fretta, vale la pena di soffermarsi diverse volte in più punti e meditare ......incredibilmente bello.
    Una cosa in particolare mi ha colpito : l' uccellino sulla spalla..... Sì dovremmo chiedercelo più spesso se è oggi quel giorno e cambiare atteggiamento .....

    Conozco muchos ancianos asi

    Las batallitas que te cuenta tu abuelo, adquiridas por los años. Pues aquí con un toque de drama, pues se muere en nada, y contadas de manera más culta.
