This is a story of Orthodox jews written by an orthodox jew. This book is not really representative of of the history of jews in the time frame 1650- 1996. Basically the guy who wrote this is frum and if you are not his kind of frum you are not really jewish and not a good person. He fails to give any substnative coverage to any group outside of eastern european ashkenazi, if at all.

The book spends too much time on Israel from 1948 and on.
