It is very important that we never take things for granted and always be thankful for the gift of life and what life brings. In the book, Mitch Albom was so blessed to have a professor who taught him not just the lessons in the book but also those lessons in life.
It would be wrong to say that this book completely changed my life. But it would be equally wrong to say that it did not have great impact. I am usually in a habit of ignoring books when they are at their peak in terms of hype. I feel that most such books turn out to be a disappointment and I thus avoid them.
