Why does it ask me what I thought when I haven't finished reading it yet?...

While I was impressed with the guy's passion and all, in the end it was too uneven for me. I think the editing might be in part at fault, as there were many blatant contradictions (at least in my mind); e.g., Jews are more free than other denominations, but they still have to marry by age 25. Maybe if I were circumcised I would understand more...no, wait; I can't actually use that excuse...

It's amazing how a person can follow a personal code that seems so contradictory at its core. The author's view of the world and his/our roles within it seems refreshing at times and stifling at others. I choose to acknowledge the good and ignore the bad within this book. There's enough good in it that I gave it 4 stars.
