Editorial Reviews

“Hertzberg has put down his recollections in pointed, witty, and compelling prose. An iconoclast and traditionalist in one-- indispensable.”
“[A]n extremely subtle, sensitive portrait.”
“Arthur Hertzberg is the leading public intellectual of Judaism of our times, and here he has written his masterpiece.”
“This is a strong book about a man who followed his conscience.”
“...a must read for anyone interested not only in the man, but also in the story of his times.”
“The author of four other books, he is considered in some circles the moral conscience of American Jews.”
“And the book is an inspiration-- for in the realm of right and wrong Hertzberg simply never compromises.”
“[Hertzberg] bears a moral light that never dims.”
“A jewel of a book from a master story teller.”
“This is the story of the fulfillment of the American Jewish dream. A must read!”
“A gripping read -- full of irony, humour and experience. A page-turner.”
“This quintessential American story touches us because people of whatever faith or ethnicity share the values it conveys.”
“The very moving and inspiring journey of a man of conscience, courage and commitment to his spiritual identity.”
“A lively and fascinating journey... not only well examined but also brilliantly told. Highly recommended.”
“[R]iveting, important, and very readable.”
