The Next Person You Meet in Heaven

By Mitch Albom

Two Thumbs Up

This is a wonderful book with gentle energy that teaches important lessons through fictional happenings. It is complete with a surprise ending that is heartwarming (and one that I don’t want to give away). It’s an easy read and left me feeling content.

The lessons include:

  • Everyone’s lives are interconnected and things happen for a reason.
  • Mistakes are just a point of view and not necessarily wrong.
  • Empathy is often blocked by ego, self-pity and thinking your own pain needs to be dealt with first.
  • Secrets keep us from making our peace.
  • And more.
