In this book, Simon Jacobson has adapted the writings and teachings of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, head of the Lubavitcher movement for 44 years until his death in 1994. He was the last of the line of a spiritual dynasty beginning in the early 1700s with Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov. Schneerson, known simply as "the Rebbe" speaks forcefully about human beings, society, and G-d (the omission of the "o" signifies that even when writing, G-d is a mystery beyond words). Although this collection contains many insightful things on childhood, youth, marriage, intimacy, home, and family, the most compelling elements are the Rebbe's stories, his comments on technology, and his thoughts on good and evil.
