    1. Here is a book that you really need to read over a period of several months. I would classify it as a difficult read just from the standpoint of the depth of the material discussed and the breadth of the book in both time span and geographical nature. The beginnings of the book would indicate to me that Schweitzer most likely had some sort of an autistic bent to his personality. A young man so absorbed in intellectual and musical things almost to the point of compulsion. His talents, focus and i [...]


    2. I borrowed this book from the library, and they had to retrieve it from the Stack, so obviously it's not borrowed often any longer. I expect, though, that when it was first published it was borrowed many times.Albert Schweitzer is a name I knew of, but he's not widely known to my generation, and I imagine the next generation hasn't heard of him. Funnily enough, I must have heard something about him that intrigued me, as when we were given our biographical subjects to choose from (for my Universi [...]


    3. This is another long book, 500+ pages. It is very, very well written.

Studying how Brabzon, a noted biographer, captures a life and makes it readable and intriguing while also totally enjoying learning about this deeply focused goal oriented man.


    5. I read this well-written biography more than 30 years ago, Carla's gift to me. Schweitzer was well-known as an organist and a humanitarian who operated African hospitals. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in the 1950's.



    6. intriguingI read this book because I was leading a discussion on Albert Scweitzer's autobiography "Out of my Life and Thought"I learned a lot from both books
