    I narrated this years ago for the Jewish Braille Institute years ago and whether it is real or not, it certainly is entertaining.

    The second half of the book contains Jacob D Ancona s philosophy of justice and the morality of society Very fitting for our times given the immorality of the Bush Administration and the issues we are facing today.

    Good overall read The only drawback to this is the mysterious manuscript that the author claims to have viewed and is possessed by an unknown person who refuses to release it publicly.
