Boteach has been the rabbi of Oxford University for 11 years and is broadly considered the most famous rabbi in America, thanks in part to his TLC show, Shalom in the Home, a kind of rabbinical family-counseling hour. Here, he focuses his homespun wisdom on the American male, whom he believes is obsessed with the appearance of success and money rather than the richer rewards of a happy family life and the self-respect that comes from the esteem of those who love him. We certainly need a writer who is willing to tell us that Donald Trump and Barry Bonds are among America's most broken men, but not all readers will endorse the author's traditional gender role-bound solutions.
