One of the books that advocate the unorthodox methods of looking at life in our modernized world as it is. In the midst of all the hullabaloo and all those unnecessary worries with the core essential of life, there is this professor who is slowly dying from Lou Gehrig's disease. His view of the world as he morph into the final moments of his decaying body is a soul-searching and life-transforming one as he begins to revel on how life should be spent on the needful virtues that often more than not escapes our busy life.
One wouldn't really realize it before it's too late and when death comes knocking on our doors. Lives with regrets, lives with worries and lives with guilt and unforgiving stances would reemerge to haunt the remnant of lives that we have. And as thus, would that be the anticipation that we fathom as we lie down in our death bed welcoming death as a friend or would we want to leave the world without fears, regrets, guilt and in total comfort? This is one short memoir of Mitch Albom's sociology professor who delves into the qualities of wonderful virtues in life that is worth keeping. One that reminds so often lest we forget and succumb blindly with the flow of our hectic life.
