    Beautiful interpretation. If there's anything wrong with this book, it's that there's a little character meant to represent sin, bad choices, yetzer hara, etc, and it's the coolest-looking dude in the book. Huge furry monster with sunglasses and a necklace that says "EVIL." I would totally be friends with this little creature. Alternatively - Halloween/Purim costume?

    Really quite well done. All translations are interpretations, and this is no exception. However, major props to this artist for creating entertaining (occasionally hilarious! Everything has faces!) as well as beautiful depictions of mishnayot. I especially appreciated the complete Hebrew text of Pirkei Avot printed in the back of the book, and the ways that Deutsch handled some of the more tricky mishnayot in this section. Great teaching tool!

    I will turn this book often! Beautiful way to introduce me to the Pirkei avot. The illustrations matched the verses well. I liked the "intro" page of the time line of rabbis. Such impressive and thoughtful artwork. I recommend this to everyone.

    I've been using this book to meditate every night before going to bed. The philosophical and religious arguments are fascinating, and the art is simply beautiful.
