I learned so much from this book. I couldn't even begin to tell everything. I learn that I will never you the cheer hip hip hooray, this being a slander toward the jews, who knew. This book is great for non-jews wanting to know more about who jews are and our history. I would highly recommend this to my non jewish friends as well to my jewish ones as well. What an eye opener.

A very good overview with a lot of history, specifics, explanatory material, background, etc. Anecdotes, definitions, descriptions of the different traditions under the umbrella of Judaism... Good even if you're not a complete idiot.

This book was amazing! I learnt alot about the history of the Jewish culture - which helped me to understand mine too! I also learnt about many famous Jewish people in American society particularly.
