The Five Most Inspiring Mitch Albom Books

Mitch Albom’s books have struck a chord with the world. Since Tuesdays with Morrie in 1997, his books have collectively sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, been translated into 42 languages, and been adapted into critically acclaimed movies. It’s no wonder why. His books—from novels to memoirs—all have a central focus on faith, humanity, and kindness. The message may be similar in each, but the stories are varied and heart-wrenching. Here are just five of Mitch Albom’s most inspiring books.


Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Mitch Albom had the glorious luck to reconnect with Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from two decades prior, in the last few months of the man’s life as ALS took over his body. Mitch always felt inspired by Morrie’s lectures, and he wanted to keep the old man company, so he made a point to meet with him every Tuesday. Their meetings were in Morrie’s study, just like when they had met twenty years ago. Morrie continued teaching—this time, lessons on how to live a life worth living. Tuesday’s With Morrie is Albom’s most beloved book for good reason: the messages in these lessons ring true for all humans.
