    1. A review would be great. Let me know if you find one. Here's the author's wikipedia page:

    1. I know. I'm trying to figure out which libraries have it. I saw that it was listed as checked in at a local library but it turned out that it wasn't there when I arrived. Bummer. Might have to travel to another city to read it.

  3. Try interlibrary loan. If it's in the system somewhere just put in a request for it and as soon as it becomes available they send it to your local library and they call you to let you know the book you reserved is now available.

    I have laying hens and I sell their eggs. I save up the money and spend it on things I can't normally afford. I just got a ten-hole, roll back, rear collecting nesting box! I know - it sounds weird - but I'm so excited! I'm such a nerd! I'll make this set my next goal.

  4. CAVEAT:

    Elon's book covers the entire history of Jewish law and expounds its principles BUT everyone should know before investing in it that it deals primarily with mishpat ivri (Jewish Secular Law) as opposed to, I'm guessing, chok ivri (Jewish Religious Law). For the distinction between the two, see the following link:
