The Book of Jewish Wisdom: The Talmud of the Well-considered Life
The unique wisdom of Judaism comes from the Talmud and the Judaic sages' other ancient writings that preserve the tradition of the originally oral Torah, or Teachings of Moses. Sometimes surprising - "better sincere sin than hypocritical virtue" - and always penetrating and helpful - "who are rich? those who are happy with their lot" - the wisdom of the oral Torah is set forth on more than one hundred subjects, arranged alphabetically, in their sources' own words, here rendered in clear and easily readable English.
This is the "how-to" book for people who think deeply about everyday life: facing death of a loved one, the duties and rights of women and men together, busy-ness versus real achievement, deceit, gossip, discretion, virtue, honor, forbearance, forgiveness.

May it be thy will , Lord my God , that you give to me a good heart , a good portion , a good inclination , a good associate , a good name , a good eye , and a good soul , and a humble soul and a modest spirit .
Open my heart to your Torah , and let my soul pursue your religious duties . Keep me from a bad encounter , a bad impulse , a bad woman , and from all sorts of bad events that may come into the world .
