Albom, Mitch “Tuesdays with Morrie”

Albom, Mitch “Tuesdays with Morrie” - 1997

This book is telling the relationship between Mitch Albom, a sports reporter, and his former university professor. The author hears about his professor falling sick and starts visiting him every Tuesday.

It is a very moving and touching book. You learn about life and death and how to deal with it.

For me, it was even more personal when I found out that a friend of mine had been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) a couple of weeks later. Unfortunately, she was too far away by then for me to help her but she had a great circle of friends who accompanied her until the end.

We discussed Mitch Albom's next book "The five people you meet in heaven" in our book club in December 2008.
