Review: Tuesdays with Morrie



Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

This short work of nonfiction has been read by most people in the western hemisphere, but not me. I grabbed the audiobook, knowing I was going to be in the car quite a bit over the last few weeks.

Albom's work discusses his connection to a former college professor, Morrie Schwartz, as Schwartz is battling (and losing) ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Albom and Morrie discuss life, love, work, and everything in between as they connect in the last few months of Morrie's life. Morrie's words are insightful and thought-provoking, and Albom a willing recorder of those thoughts.

A touching, warm story about a remarkable professor and his student.

Note: I listened to the audio edition, narrated by Albom himself. Albom's narration is incredibly fast, but well done. As a bonus, you can hear Morrie himself speaking on the last disc.
