I'm tempted to call this book "Thursdays with Tony," since, like another famous book, it consists of conversations with a professor dying of ALS. But these conversations are with a fellow professor and although they are partly biographical, the focus is on modern European history. Anyone with a background and interest in the subject will find this a rewarding read.
