Good basic book, easy to read and very convenient to look for specific topics. My only criticism is that they werr vey short on the explanations for each mitzvah.

Good introduction to the concept of Mitzvah and Jewish practice from a Reform perspective. Useful for review, introduction and reference. If you are reading this book and want to discuss it with someone who has a long association with Jewish religion and Jewish philosophy and culture you can message me.
