Overview

Morrie Schwartz (the protagonist of Tuesdays with Morrie) calls on his deep insight into human nature and training as a social psychologist to offer strategies to stay vibrant, connected, and full of life while aging. Packed with stories, poems, anecdotes and advice, love deeply pervades this entire work. Morrie uses writings he admires, poems and parables, as well as his own ideas to illustrate strategies to age enjoyably and gracefully. We bask in Morrie’s unique voice and affectionate prose while absorbing his numerous techniques to make the golden years golden. “There is no forced retirement from aging creatively.”

Author Biography

Morrie Schwartz became an internationally renowned figure posthumously after Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie stayed number 1 on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list for five years. Before that he was a beloved professor of sociology at Brandeis University and cherished therapist at Greenhouse in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Morrie wrote on a wide variety of topics. He dedicated his life to helping people understand their relationships to society, other people, and themselves. His groundbreaking 1954 book (with Alfred Stanton) The Mental Hospital made him a superstar in the field of sociology, earning Morrie a tenured full professorship as his first university position. Morrie was dedicated to social justice and valuing every human being.
