Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
This book, which I discovered half way through, is a real story that comes across as preachy at times. I liked the book, I think it is a great discussion starter, and I believe it has some wonderful advice for life. I just felt like it was a bit contrived. Maybe I was just feeling cynical the couple days I was reading it. I still think it is a good book and if you really hate it, it is only going to waste about 3 hours or less of your life. No worries.
