What is Bored at home book reviews?

Bored at home book reviews is a series that I felt compelled to release, keeping in mind the current market situation that has badly hit businesses and jobs across the globe. While you search for the next best opportunity, one way to keep yourself productively occupied is by indulging in reading good books. Hence, I decided to share reviews of a few books from my personal library.

Who knows how one good book recommendation could change your life in testing times, right?

As a part of this series, I have decided to limit the reviews to only the books that I like. I am not here to be a book critic, on the contrary, I am here to be that one person you would look up to for suggesting your next read!

  • Book name and author:
    Book name – Tuesdays with Morrie.
    Author – Mitch Albom.
  • What is it about?
    It is a real-life story of author Mitch Albom, a young sports journalist and Morrie Schwartz, his 77-year-old college professor who gets diagnosed with ALS disease. It is a memoir of the author’s weekly visits to his ailing college professor from around two decades ago. Their rekindled association transforms into their last ‘thesis’: lessons on how to live. Mitch has a great career but his life seems to be in a ruck, this is when he decides to meet his professor every week on Tuesday. The wisdom that Morrie shares in his final days helps the author get his life back on track. But it doesn’t stop there as the same lessons are shared through this book with the intention of improving the quality of lives of many who read it.
  • Who is it for?
    This book is an ideal read for someone who is on the lookout for a mentor to improve the quality of their life. Those who feel lost in their endless pursuit of having a successful career. This book is for those who would like to get insights into inner engineering. This book is for those who understand the fact that wisdom you collect sticks around for a longer time than most physical possessions.
  • My favourite quote:
    “As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you’d always be twenty-two. Ageing is not just decay, you know. It’s growth.”
