The Perfect Gift...

"A book to strengthen one’s 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…goes far 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 capital—values, 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, Cspacerulture Matters, (with Samuel P. Huntington)

"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

"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 Curve
