Synopsis:
A blending of Jewish facts and minutiae celebrates exceptional rabbis, unusual Jewish web sites, the most popular Yiddish words, Jewish organizations, and Jewish athletes, film stars, scientists, criminals, and businesspersons.

Review:
Jumped at the opportunity to share his pride.
Here's how it happened: First I proposed a biblical satire called "Jerusalem: A Prophet Center." Citadel Press passed on the idea. At the same time, they had already been planning to come out with a new Jewish book of lists, and they determined I might be the right guy to do it. At first I couldn't see the connection: they wanted a serious book of Jewish pride from a guy who suggested an irreverent biblical satire! But then, as I began to research and write the book, I saw that the guys at Citadel have the wisdom of Solomon (if not his 300 wives and 700 concubines). If, as I believe, Judaism is about life, live, enjoyment, and certain other wonderful things, why not write a book that uses a little levity and quirkiness to get the word out? Jewish pride doesn't have to be stuffy. Heaven knows, we ain't stuffy people. (At least not all of us.) All in all, "The Jewish Book of Lists" may not be the most comprehensive book of its kind in the world, but it's sure a lot of fun. And it has a ton of pride (not to mention a ton of facts). I enjoyed the opportunity. Now, back to Jerusalem: A Prophet Center........
