Mitch Albom On The Meaning Of Time And His New Book 'The Time Keeper'

The older we get, the more we become aware of the passage of time. Best-selling author Mitch Albom joined "CBS This Morning" anchors for a touching chat on time, and what it really means, through the lens of his new book "The Time Keeper." In it, Father Time has been punished for sharing the concept of time with humanity, and can only redeem himself by teaching the true meaning of time to a suicidal young woman and a wealthy older man who seeks to freeze himself until a cure for his cancer can be found.

"We're so obsessed with time in this country... we just want to go faster and live longer," Albom pointed out. "But I don't think we're so concerned with the quality of our time."
