For everyone who enjoyed the inspiration and wisdom of Morrie Schwartz in Mitch Albom's moving best-seller Tuesdays with Morrie, here is Morrie's own book, presenting the philosophies by which he triumphantly lived, even as he faced the end of his life. For decades Morrie engaged his Brandeis University students in the importance of community and involvement in life. Ever the teacher, in his last year, as his battle with the fatal illness amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's Disease, gradually weakened him, he appeared on three memorable "Nightline" programs with Ted Koppel, simply titled "Morrie," and captivated millions of viewers across the country with his spirit and compassion. Before he died, Morrie finished the manuscript for this book, which was originally titled Letting Go. He saw it as his greatest teaching opportunity. Whether you or a loved one is healthy or ill, young or old, there is invaluable wisdom here that can enrich your life. From "handling frustration" and "reaching acceptance" to "relating to others" and "being kind to yourself," Morrie's life-affirming insights help you take stock of where you are now and where you may want to be. Morrie: In His Own Words will have a lasting impact on whoever reads it. It is Morrie's invaluable legacy to us all.

Author M. R. Pickard spent years collecting thoughts and ideas, storing them away in the back of her filing cabinet in a nondescript manila folder labelled “BOOK.” Years of staring into the faces of her students—teenage boys in desperate need of good male role models—inspired her to jot down one jewel of wisdom after another. Channelling her late father, Ronald Ernest John Pickard, she has always endeavoured to display the qualities most in need of sharing while in the classroom. Now she’s ready to transcend the classroom and share the lessons she learned from her beloved father with the world. As they ever have, young men today need answers to important questions. What does it mean to be a man? What are the effects of pornography on men, women, and children? Why is there suffering in the world? How do we fall in love with God? For most young men, these are questions that they will never ask. The answers lie in the actions of their role models. In today’s age, it can be challenging to make sure children are exposed to positive male role models. Pickard, who is an author, artist, and secondary school teacher, bore witness to this deficit daily in her years at the head of a classroom. Breathing life into the profound lessons she learned from her late father, she now offers parents and caretakers a resource for helping show today’s young men how to live lives of true greatness.

Homeward Bound shows that as family structure becomes more complex, so too does elder care, and existing institutions and legal approaches are not prepared to handle those complexities. As 79 million American Baby Boomers approach old age, their diverse family structures mean the burden of care will fall on a different cast of family members than in the past. Our current approaches are based on an outdated caregiving model that presumes life-long connection between the parents and offspring, with the existence of high internal norm cohesion among family members providing a valuable safety net for caregiving. Single parent and remarried parent-led families are far more complicated, fragile, and point to the need for increased formal support from the religious, medical, legal, and public policy communities. We base our analysis on in-depth, qualitative interviews with surviving grown children and stepchildren whose mother, father, stepparent, or ex-stepparent died. Their stories illustrate the profound ways that the caregiving, mourning, and inheritance process has changed in ways not adequately reflected in formal legal, medical, and religious tools. The solutions center on awareness and preparation: providing more support for individual planning for incapacity and death and, even more importantly, creating legal, political, and social planning for the "graying of America" at a time of increasingly complex familial ties.
