I loved this book! I've recommended this to lots of my half-Jewish friends and relatives. It's a slightly fluffy book of lists about a growing minority (to which I belong), but with some interesting insights into the issues of growing up as simultaneously both an insider and an outsider.

This was a terrible book. Wow. Just SO BAD. Thesis: Being half-Jewish is awesome and sexy. Proof: Here are photos are sexy half-Jewish people and bad copy.
