Recommends it for: everybody, especially Jews
This is an audio book, and it's phenomenal. I found the Biblical lecture (Part 1) especially inspiring, and my very favorite part was about King Solomon and Jeroboam. The second tape in the series, which is about the development of Christianity and Islam and what it meant for the Jewish people, taught me more about that subject than anything I'd ever heard or read before, and the conclusion about the State of Israel will have your heart soaring.

It's totally unfair of me to review this because I worked on it. This is MY baby. Yes, the lectures are Rabbi Wein's, but I transcribed and edited them, I chose the maps and photos, and the biographical summaries at the end are mine. I hope you'll check it out at http://www.rabbiwein.com/Crash-Course...
