My mother died from ALS in 1996 so reading this book about Morrie's battle took me back to those struggles Mom dealt with. I would read until I could not cry any more! Very personal and beautiful!! I happened upon this book as I was preparing to participate in this year's ALS walk so it reminded me, again, what a relentless disease ALS truly is. Even though reading this book brought back pain for me, it was an awesome story.
This book is an amazing story of the perspective of a university professor dying from Lou Gehrig's disease. His insight into the things that really matter in life causes one to stop and think about what one is living for. An honest look at life and death from a man who gave all he could when most would have simply given up.
