I agree with you about Mr. Albom’s detachment. I think that’s what gives me the impression he’s preachy.
I don’t like his books. The ideas are good, but the resolutions offered are easy, child-like.
His books are too soft and mushy for me.
Are his columns any different?

They’re not typically soft and mushy, no. But most of his stuff is sports related, so it would be hard most of the time to make those soft and mushy.

I can’t stand Mitch Albom. Waaay overrated as a writer and person. My undergraduate institution gave his book (tuesdays with morrie) out to every freshman who entered college. That was a lot of people. A lot of books. And he refused to come speak at a leadership ceremony our university was holding that honored exceptional teachers and coaches because we wouldn’t give him enough money. And trust me, we were offering up plenty. And he was rude and horrible. Can’t stand him.

Okay, I’m done now. HA. Sorry.
