The ABC Television Network, Harpo Films and Mitch Albom re-teamed for the two-hour television event motion picture Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom's "For One More Day," based on Mitch’s book, For One More Day.

Inspiration: Rhoda Albom. The ABC Television Network, Harpo Films and Mitch Albom re-teamed for the two-hour television event motion picture Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom's "For One More Day," based on Mitch’s book, For One More Day. Directed by Lloyd Kramer ( The Five People You Meet in Heaven ) and starring Emmy Award winning actor Michael Imperioli ( The Sopranos ) and Academy Award-winning actress Ellen Burstyn ( The Fountain, The Exorcist, ) the film premiered Sunday, December 9, 2007.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Tuesdays with Morrie. But ask yourself this: Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back. What if you got it back? May 2006.

This is the third book I've read by Mitch, and a constant thread in these 3 books is that someone cares and makes it known to the recipients with a combination of deeds and words. Also, often, the caring is not immediately recognized or appreciated. However, over time, the care receiver sees the care shining through and feels blessed by it. After reading this book, I spent a lot of time thinking about my mother and what I would say and do if I could spend just one more day with her.

Mitch Albom is an author, playwright, and screenwriter who has written seven books, including the international bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, the bestselling memoir of all time. His first novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, was an instant number-one New York Times bestseller that has since sold more than six million copies worldwide.

For One More Day is a 2006 philosophical novel by Mitch Albom. Like his previous works (Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven), it features mortality as a central theme. The book tells the story of a troubled man and his mother, and explores how people might use the opportunity to spend a day with a lost relative. The book's theme is mortality: it analyzes how people might react to the chance to have a dead relative back for a day.

I've been a Mitch Albom fan ever since reading "The Five People You Meet in Heaven". I was curious about "for one more day" because it was about a mother's love, and I lost my mother to illness 16 years ago. I am 70 years old and had a good life, largely thanks to my mother's guidance in my early years. Through her love and constant encouragement, she taught me to appreciate and hone my natural gifts in life.

The mother in "for one more day" is like that with her son; she loves her son and is very involved with his upbringing. The son is rebellious to the mother's gentle guidance and strives to win the approval of his emotionally distant father. Mitch Albom has such an ear for the every day dialog that occurs in a family's home. The mother is steadfastly devoted to her son, even as he openly prefers his father's "manly" style.

This is the third book I've read by Mitch, and a constant thread in these 3 books is that someone cares and makes it known to the recipients with a combination of deeds and words. Also, often, the caring is not immediately recognized or appreciated. However, over time, the care receiver sees the care shining through and feels blessed by it.

After reading this book, I spent a lot of time thinking about my mother and what I would say and do if I could spend just one more day with her. I would ask her what she liked about how I turned out, how she liked my 3 adult children, and how she liked the way I renovated her old house before I sold it 6 years ago.

For those of you who lost a beloved parent, give this book a try.. Then spend some time thinking about having that parent with you for a day, just the two of you. Mitch Albom inspires you to think about your life from a different perspective. Who in your life loved you and gave their all on your behalf? Reading this book will make you a little sad, but eventually, you'll smile more whenever you think about that special parent.

Meet Chick Benetto (Charley). He's faced a life of emotional pain enduring unfulfilled ambitions, alcohol abuse, divorce, an estranged daughter, a broken childhood home, and an extremely shortened pro baseball career. To say his life has been unfulfilling is an understatement.
Chick returns to his abandoned childhood home after two bungled suicide attempts. Chick gets "One more day" after encountering the spirit of his deceased mom. Chick thoughtlessly took her for granted during childhood and through his less than stellar adult life.
Miraculously, Chick can now apologize to mom for his ingratitude regarding the sacrifices she made as a single, working mother. He lied, his way through life, drank heavily, made one bad decision after another. He respected no one, not even himself. The author tells his story beautifully, particularly in Chick's recollections of his mother's wisdom. Mr. Albom gives mom (Pauline) a great deal of depth and a complex character which spans familiar ideas of motherhood in the '50s. The gentle, knowing ways of Pauline provide Chick with an unconditional love, even in death. She's a likeable, lovable woman; though I had a hard time feeling empathy for him.

In the end, Mr. Albom provides the reader with a short epilogue which brings this very loving story to a heartening end. Albom's books are thought provoking and this one is no different.

I loved this book so much; having lost my oldest son this past June I was so touched and moved that as soon as I finished, I turned to page one and started all over again. Made me sad, yet inspired; all I want is just one more day with my boy. He passed away unexpectedly and tragically and I never got a chance to say goodbye or get that last hug and kiss and I love you Mom that I would get each time we visited. Our last 2 conversations were via the phone (2 days before he died) and via text (1 day before he slipped into a week long coma which he never came out of). I feel like I can't let him go because I need that proper goodbye...... This book left me feeling like maybe one day I'll get my wish.

Albom's book reminds us we all have regrets and yearnings to make up for what we said or didn't say to our loved ones. I particularly liked the chapters where he wrote about how his mother had stood up and supported him. The heart wrenching chapters were when he described how he did not support her. Hopefully, after reading this, we will be reminded that we only have today to let our loved ones know that we care!

This is a beautiful and touching mother and son story that will make you reconsider how you treat your own mother.:)

I hope my review has been helpful to you. It encourages me to continue writing and updating my reviews. Please leave a comment if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer if I can be of help.

Can Mitch Albon write a bad book? Every book I have read from this author have just been outstanding. This is a favorite I think. I would give the world to spend one day with my Mom. This book speaks to everyone. We all have Moms. I had the best Mom. She developed Alzheimer's in her 70's. By the time she died on Christmas day 2013 I had an up close personal education on Alzheimer's and it sucks. These books are a quick read and he always brings something up that relates to any reader. I highly recommend this book and any book written by Mitch Albon.
