What can this old guy tell me that's going to help me when I get to a similar point?'' Ted Koppel put that question to Morrie Schwartz during an interview conducted before the popular Brandeis sociology professor died of ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Morrie's illness gradually destroyed nerve cells in his body, leading him on a slow physical decline throughout which his mind remained sound, lucid, and even playful. This ABC News report caught the attention of one of Schwartz's former students, sportswriter Mitch Albom. He was motivated to begin visiting with his former teacher, which led to the best-selling book Tuesdays with Morrie. Through it all, Schwartz demonstrates his hard-won wisdom with humor, wit, and candor that are truly amazing.
