Either this one wasn't as good as I remembered the others to be or I've outgrown his appeal. I think I enjoyed learning more about Judaism when I first read these 20+ years ago, but I just found this to be so dated and the rabbi to be such an insufferable pompous jerk in this one that I really didn't enjoy it.
