The Perfect Gift...
"A book to strengthen ones pride in
being Jewish" Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, author, When
Bad Things Happen to Good People
"It reignited my pride in my Jewish heritage"
Linda Kaplan, Kaplan Communications Group
"This book made me proud to be a Jew" Ed Stolman,
Entrepreneur, The Dove Bar
A Great Read...
"...If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one
percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust
lost in the blaze of the Milky way. Properly, the Jew ought hardly
to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He
is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial
importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of
his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in
literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse
learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his
numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the
ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be
vain of himself, and be excused for it."
Mark Twain, Harpers, 1899
"The individual narratives . . . [are] so well written and
interesting that I enjoyed them immensely. That the Jews achieve in
all fields disproportionately. . . and that this has an historical dimension
. . . much more true after the . . . Emancipation seems overwhelmingly
self-evident by the end of the book. I was remarkably impressed. [This
is] a superb job of research, organization and presentation."
Michael Denneny, Editor, New York
"Beautifully written . . . completely mesmerizing . . . thoroughly
enjoyed it . . . the mini biographies are brilliant. I had never thought
of it before, but the mandatory and continuous education
in explaining the phenomenon. Education and hard work can certainly
make an ordinary person extraordinary." Linda Kuhns
An Important Book...
"This is a hugely important book. Not only does it document
Jewish achievement in compelling, fascinating detail. It hits the nail
on the head in explaining that astonishing achievement as the consequence
of Jewish cultural capitalvalues, beliefs, and attitudes that
drive progress. And it makes it crystal clear that those values, beliefs,
and attitudes are available to all, Jew and gentile alike."
Lawrence Harrison, Editor, Culture Matters, (with Samuel
"An impressive tome . . . Exhaustive examination of Jewish
Achievement over the past 200 years . . . An intriguing look at the
modern history of an outstanding people." Kirkus Discoveries
An Invaluable Reference...
"An exceptionally useful work of reference"
Rt. Hon. Sir Martin Gilbert, P.C., CBE Historian, London
"I enjoyed looking at it a lot, and it will be an invaluable
reference source for others looking at the topic. Congratulations."
Charles Murray, author, Human Accomplishment, The Bell
