Kurzbeschreibung

8. Oktober 2002
A classic from the author of The First Phone Call from Heaven

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.

For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final “class”: lessons in how to live.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

Amazon.de

No one but Mitch Albom could have read Tuesdays with Morrie so effectively. As the author of this inspirational true story, Albom uses verbal inflection in exactly the right places to evoke humor, empathy, and emotion. It's an honest reading, and the underlying timbre of private memory pushes it past mere recitation to pure storytelling.

The titular Morrie was Morrie Schwartz, Albom's university professor 20 years before the events being narrated. An accidental viewing of an interview with Morrie on Nightline led Albom to become reunited with his old teacher, friend, and "coach" at a time when Albom, a successful sportswriter, was struggling to define dissatisfactions with his own life and career. Morrie, on the other hand, after a rich life filled with friends, family, teaching, and music, was dying from Lou Gehrig's disease, a crippling illness that diminished his activities daily. Albom was one of hundreds of former students and acquaintances who traveled great distances to visit Morrie in the final months of his life.

The 14 Tuesday visits that followed their reunion took Albom--and will take listeners with him--on a journey of reawakening to life's best rewards. The story is told in a journalistic style that never crosses into pathos. That a professional writer can write well is not surprising, but Albom also reads well, with clear enunciation and a talent for mimicry. Another reader might have interpreted the professor's aphorisms as droll humor or wrung a wrong note at an inappropriate moment, making the story a maudlin tearjerker; instead it is read for what it is, a tribute to a remarkable teacher. (Running time: four hours, three cassettes) --Brenda Pittsley -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Hörkassette .

4.0 von 5 Sternen Morrie tells his story & everyone listens 1. August 2000
Von R. Spell
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Morrie wanted to share his upbeat philosophy of life and how that should carry over in his death. If he were alive today, he clearly would be staggered by the number of people who took the time to listen.
I bought this book two years ago based on great reviews but couldn't get excited about reading a book about death. I even skipped the movie. But after finally picking it up, I throughly enjoyed the quick, insightful read that makes everyone re-examine their life's values, including me.
Morrie was clearly an exceptional human being. We've all had great teachers but this guy was the ultimate with the joy and love he took in his craft. Mitch Albom is a typical American caught in the American dream without realizing there is a problem. I applaud Mitch for writing this book and softly admitting some of his past sins. My only complaint is that I wish Mitch had been able to more definitely conclude the issues he may or may not have with his brother.
But this is Morrie's book. I spent the next day trying to recall if I had met anyone quite like him. It's difficult to live up to the high standards he sets. An excellent read and excellent lessons we should all remember.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Platitudes from Morrie 19. Mai 2000
Von Ciáres
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Tuesdays with Morrie is the tale of a "dying man talking to a living man, telling him what he should know." It's a compendium of one man's life's lessons, dispensed by the sainted Morrie in his effort to "walk that final bridge between life and death and narrate the trip."
My question is this--is Morrie's advice of any real value? Are his utterances practicable to the point that Mr. Albom has the right to pass them off as gospel? Is Morrie's message, just because it's right for him, necessarily right for the rest of mankind? If not, then it's presumptuous and pushy for Morrie's disciple to attempt to foist ideas about how to live on the rest of us.
In America, self-improvement instruction has long been the publisher's cash cow. It's notoriously profitable. People want to be told how to live. Consequently, there's always someone like Mitch around to provide a map of the road to happiness, to show us the ropes of life, to provide the keys to fulfillment and self-actualization. "Tuesdays With Morrie" is one more bag of balm in a smarmy genre that won't go away. What makes Morrie a little different is that the central character lives and breathes, and, to make matters more heart-rending, we're permitted to accompany him on his journey to the Valley of Death. It's the perfect setup. Dying man's words reek of authenticity; author uses them to bathe the reader in his own shame. The result? Catharsis! Albom is saying, look, here's a guy who's dying. Instead of crying in his beer and fearfully living out his last days in self-pity, he's willing to give everything to teach you barbarians the real lessons of life. And what are you doing? Living your lives in the same shallow, unfocused, materialistic way you always have. It's shameful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Teacher's Greatest Lesson 17. Dezember 1999
Von bond
Format:Hörkassette
Tuesday's with Morrie was a wonderful book. Mitch Albom, the author, describes his hectic life as a sports writer, jet setting around the world, but missing something. When Mitch accidentally sees his former teacher and mentor from college on Night Line with Ted Koppel, Mitch is curious and contacts him. Unfortunately, Morrie is dying from ALS and as their relationship grows, so does the ravages of this disease. Each Tuesday, Morrie and Mitch have a session where some of life's simplest ideas are discussed. Morrie maps out suggestions for living that are so simple and uncomplicated that Mitch and the reader cannot help but pay attention to such good advice. Some of Morrie's advice comes from tough experiences such as the death of his Mother when he was only eight years old. Morrie tells of never really getting over this tragedy and it was mostly because his father would not discuss it. Sadly, the telegram announcing his mother's death in a hospital is his only momento of her. Morrie decides to make his dying as untraumatic as is possible. He has plenty of time to say good-bye to loved ones and Mitch is included in this special group. Of course, this story cannot have a happy ending because this disease is incureable, yet Mitch is content in the end to go to Morrie's grave and talk while Morrie listens. As Morrie said those you love in this life are always with you in your memories. Professor Morrie Schwartz was a truly remarkable man and the sense of humor he kept through out his terrible suffering and humiliations he endured as his body shrunk to nothing is something I will always remember. Morrie Schwartz was the ultimate teacher and his life was the lesson we all should follow. This book tells you through out to stop and smell the roses. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen "A Great Teacher .. To The Very End" 21. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a beautiful, true story filled with such wonder and wisdom. Although it is a "no holds barred" account of the impending ALS-inflicted death of Professor Morrie Schwartz .. the unselfish happiness that "oozed" from this gracious, gentle man .. far outweighs the inevitability of his death. His outlook on life .. and death .. is astounding! The story was chronicled on Nightline with Ted Koppel .. and in a TV movie that aired in early December of 1999. His philosophy teachings and love of life is evident in every page. He just plain "loved people" .. especially his students. He was kind enough to share the most precious gift any of us can ever give .. he gave "himself" .. to anyone and everyone who was willing to listen .. and that would share with him in return. He .. as I do .. believed that "sharing your love" and "a little of your time" can make "all the difference" in people's lives .. and that you will be overwhelmed with "what comes back" to you! He was a great teacher .. to the very end.
I was so touched by this book .. I read it in its entirety .. in one sitting. I hope you will "do yourself a favor" and pick up a copy .. if you haven't already.
