The question-and-answer nature of this book seemed to cover all the bases (and intuit all of my questions) about Jewish holidays and the Jewish life cycle. Definitely a reference book I want on my Jewish bookshelf.

Really great breakdown for someone who knows virtually nothing about a jewish life, so very insightful.
This book was a good overview of Jewish holidays and traditions. I still reference it.
Not life changing but very informative. An easy read.
Great reference book.
