'To Morrie, life was a process of opening oneself lovingly - to
other people, to the world, ultimately to something larger than
ourselves. To the last instant, Morrie was full of wonder and joy.
The way he lived his final year was this great teacher's final
lesson.' Paul Solman, from the introduction
At the age of seventy-seven, sociology professor Morrie Schwartz
learned that he had motor neurone disease: incurable, progressively
disabling and eventually fatal. Undaunted, he embraced his illness,
choosing to live as fully as possible in the time he had left. He
also embarked on his greatest teaching adventure, sharing his
evolving knowledge of living while dying.
Previously published as "Letting Go," "Morrie in His Own Words"
offers Morrie Schwartz's remarkable philosophy. He writes with
great humour and compassion, combining wise sayings, inspiring
lessons and practical advice, showing that it's never too late to
become the kind of person you'd like to be. This book is a
magnificent legacy of love, forgiveness, transcendence and
redemption - a guide to living fully to the end of your days.
