When Rabbi Berel Wein aims his pen at the foibles and challenges of everyday life, get ready to raise your eyebrows, position your lips to smile, and openyour mind to think. Rabbi Wein distills the best of his many careers -- rabbi,lawyer, rosh yeshivah, historian, teacher, lecturer, observer -- into thescores of keen and cogent observations that make up this precious littlebook.
The rest of us go through life and see a lot but perceive very little. Rabbi Wein observes a bunch of green bananas or two armfuls ofloaded shopping bags and discerns a blueprint for more enjoyable, moreproductive living.
The chapters in this book will amuse, enlighten, provoke,inspire ... Don’t be left out; let bunches of green bananas ripen in your mind.
We could go on and on, but you get the idea. The book’s a treat. Just read it!
