Overview

It Costs Money to Sin offers the reader a most comprehensive insight into the world of Jewish wisdom. It comes in the form of an A-Z dictionary and represents probably the biggest single collection ever published, with a total of over 3,000 proverbs coming from sources from every corner of the globe. The reader has here a unique reference volume, which will give him access to the most profound philosophy-expressed with a charming and subtle mixture of humour, wisdom and down-to-earth realism. The unifying factor throughout this dictionary is that all the entries are original Jewish proverbs and embody that quintessential Jewish worldly philosophy. On the other hand there is an element of freshness and difference that stems from the fact that there are so many different nationalities that contribute to the total collection. A truly absorbing read, It Costs Money to Sin will be an indispensable manual for all lovers of wisdom from whatever religious persuasion and an absolute goldmine of witty and wise things to say when the time is right.
