THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON THAT HAS TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF OVER 9 MILLION READERS 'Mitch Albom sees the magical in the ordinary' Cecelia Ahern __________ Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague? Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it? For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago. Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded.

ABOUT THE BOOK Throughout our lives we have all encountered, at one point or another, people who have taught us some new insight about life, the universe, and our place in it. A beloved grandparent passing on the wisdom they have collected throughout the years, or a teacher whose guidance was instrumental in forming us into the person we are today. For Mitch Albom, the person who made that difference in his life was Morrie Schwartz. Tuesdays with Morrie chronicles a professor's final lecture to his former student with whom he reconnects in his final days. The book has sold over 14 million copies to date and has more than 50 editions the world over. At its core, the book really tells two stories. On one hand, it narrates Morrie's final lessons for Mitch Albom. But it also talks about Morrie's rich and colorful life. Both stories are framed in the context of Tuesday lessons,which is where the book gets its title. MEET THE AUTHOR Joseph Pritchard is passionate reader and writer. He has a bachelor's degree in Biology and also completed a degree in medicine. He has written for other prominent online publications and enjoys writing on a variety of topics. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Because the book's focus is on Mitch and Morrie, much of the narrative is told via flashbacks that highlight moments in the lives of both men. The story begins at the end of Mitch's initial relationship with Morrie, his college graduation. During this time, Mitch gives his professor a tan leather briefcase with Morrie's initials monogrammed on it. He promises to stay in touch. But the promises is forgotten and many years would pass before both friends are reunited. Since graduating, Mitch went on to become a newspaper journalist and led a life in the fastlane, constantly working and traveling. Prior to his success as a journalist, Mitch was forced to abandon a failing musical career. Mitch becomes so fixated with work that it crowds out other aspects of his life.

From strenuous opposition to physician-assisted suicide to a conviction that sex-correction surgery for newborns is cruel and misguided, Dr. Paul R. McHugh's opinions are strong and often controversial. In this collection of essays, McHugh demonstrates why he is one of the most thought-provoking figures in the academic world. These pieces argue for a realistic appraisal of just what psychiatrists know and how they know it, with the aim of indicating how such knowledge can best be used not only for better patient care but also to reflect on and influence public issues and social movements. His essays will stimulate professional and popular discussion about the goals and effectiveness of current psychiatric practice. McHugh sorts through the layers of what he terms the "culturally driven misdirection of psychiatry and psychotherapy" to explain concepts often misunderstood by nonscholars and the intellectual community alike. America's leading psychiatrist may inspire you or offend you, but he will certainly make you think.

Jewish Writing and the Deep Places of the Imagination

When he learned he had ALS and roughly two years to live, literary critic Mark Krupnick returned to the writers who had been his lifelong conversation partners and asked with renewed intensity: how do you live as a Jew, when, mostly, you live in your head? The evocative and sinuous essays collected here are the products of this inquiry. In his search for durable principles, Krupnick follows Lionel Trilling, Cynthia Ozick, Geoffrey Hartman, Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, and others into the elemental matters of life and death, sex and gender, power and vulnerability. The editors—Krupnick’s wife, Jean K. Carney, and literary critic Mark Shechner—have also included earlier essays and introductions that link Krupnick’s work with the “deep places” of his own imagination.

The Power of Serving Others

This book is about changing our world. It's not about a revolution, but it is revolutionary. It's about serving others--looking at others as people who could use a hand. It's about looking at our hands and realizing that they already contain what others need. This book starts with some assumptions--mainly that people really do want to help one another and make the world better, but they often don't know how to do it. It also assumes that people are looking for meaning and significance in their lives, but they don't know how to find them. They've tried accumulating wealth, tried increasing excitement, tried exercising authority, but those attempts left them empty.
