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

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.

Mitch Albom is the narrator of this book recalls Morrie Schwartz his favorite university with whom he promised to keep in touch after graduation – which, of course, he didn’t. Sixteen years after his graduation, Mitch feels increasingly disappointed with the life he leads. He focuses on his career and and tries to succeed. One day he is shocked to see Morrie on TV who is being interviewed because he is dying.

In his professional life he is increasingly aware that eh chases the wrong thing – celebrities who do not have much to offer but boredom and emptiness. He establishes a relationship with Morrie again and they agree to meet each Tuesday to discuss the lessons of life. Morrie did not have – on the outside – a very happy childhood. His father was cold and distant so Morrie tries to be the very opposite. In their meetings Mitch comes to realize that the wrong values are stressed in our society – there is a focus on greed, egotism and shallowness. Morrie learns to accept death and aging as the eternal cycle of life.

Obviously, the book touches on many topics that are relevant to each and every reader. As a living example Morries learns to accept that life has to come to an end and one’s happiness does not depend on material goods. A simple lesson but some we all need to be reminded again and again because it is way too easy top fall into the traps society sets up for us.

It is an easy book to read and highly recommendable for readers of all ages.

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... ›

Tuesdays at Morrie's is an incredible book about how everything in life matters: An old professor - Morrie - knows that he will be dying, but instead of pitying himself, he is sharing everything that is important to him until the last minute. He talks with a former student of his about different themes of life and how he approaches them. Sharing his knowledge makes a huge difference in a lot of people's lifes.
It reminded me of "Working on yourself doesn't work" from Ariel and Shya Kane. A great book about going for your life with totality and excellence, but without fixing yourself. I know it sounds like a paradox, but this books gives you the tools how to have a magnificent life: day in and day out. I highly recommend it!
