by Mitch Albom.
Quickie recap: Mitch's one-time favourite prof and mentor, Morrie, is diagnosed with ALS and has only months to live. As his body betrays him and he bids his goodbyes, he takes the time to teach one final lesson: love, above everything else.
Quickie review: I know, I know, I am the last person on earth to read this book, but here's the deal: I was wrecked after reading The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Wrecked. And I thought it might be a good idea to give myself, say, 2 years worth of padding before I attempted another one. Albom impresses me with his quiet style, and the way he elicits emotion without be emotional.
Quickie recommendation: Morrie is a man worth getting to know, and an inspiration waiting to happen.
