The plot follows the personal growth of the author as he deals with the life and dying process of a beloved professor. He learns what is important in life, and what brings happiness and meaning and we watch as the author brings that knowledge into his own life.
It's an easy read, yet it reveals a lot about life through the conversation between the author and his Professor. It's a very touching story of a teacher-and-student relationship, and the courage of the Professor to face death is tremendous.
This is one of the best books I have read. It is truely touching, inspiring and made me feel very humble. One of those times in your life where you stop and think " This is where I need to take stock and change where my lifes journey is taking me"
You'll need a box of tissues though!!
