TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mitch Albom

Biography & Memoir • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

[Editor’s note: This program, originally recorded in 1997, has been updated with a new introduction.]--TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE inspired readers with Morrie Schwartz’s insightful and compelling outlook on life. The book has been re-released on audio with a new introduction by author Mitch Albom, a sportswriter and radio host whose reading captures the essence of Schwartz. Although the new introduction adds little, the bestseller remains a thought-provoking chronicle of Schwartz’s struggle with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Albom’s reading superbly balances his emotional attachment to Schwartz with the need to avoid sounding overly sentimental. While Albom’s delivery could not be better, perhaps the most important reason to listen is the actual recordings of Schwartz replayed at the end of the book. They demonstrate that, although a book can capture words, only the tape recorder can fully capture the person behind the words. D.J.S.
