"This book should be on every Jewish bookshelf. Note that I write that without having any financial stake in the book. Buy it. Read it. Have your children read it."
I'm not saying that you buy it on account of Gil Student telling you to, I say buy it for the story, the telling pictures, and to see how the mindset of Jews has changed over the years, which is basically what he says.
