Reviews

Tuesdays with Morrie is the best-selling inspirational true story of Albom and the discussions he had with his dying sociology professor and mentor, Morrie Schwartz. The topic is life, and Schwartz has profound advice for his former student. The author does an excellent job reading his book; we can hear Schwartz getting weaker physically through the narrator's pauses and speech intonations. Highly recommended for all public libraries.-Ilka Gordon, Medical Lib., Fairview General Hosp., Cleveland Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

As a student at Brandeis University in the late 1970s, Albom was especially drawn to his sociology professor, Morris Schwartz. On graduation he vowed to keep in touch with him, which he failed to do until 1994, when he saw a segment about Schwartz on the TV program Nightline, and learned that he had just been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. By then a sports columnist for the Detroit Free Press and author of six books, including Fab Five, Albom was idled by the newspaper strike in the Motor City and so had the opportunity to visit Schwartz in Boston every week until the older man died. Their dialogue is the subject of this moving book in which Schwartz discourses on life, self-pity, regrets, aging, love and death, offering aphorisms about each‘e.g., "After you have wept and grieved for your physical losses, cherish the functions and the life you have left." Far from being awash in sentiment, the dying man retains a firm grasp on reality. An emotionally rich book and a deeply affecting memorial to a wise mentor, who was 79 when hedied in 1995. (Sept.)
