In my mind, this book should be a standard book for all yeshiva students. It would be great if they would translate it into Hebrew as well. The book is well-researched, brings examples that speak to the mind, has a methodology that will help you understand a Midrash the way the chachamim intended it to be understood.A big 'yasher koach' to Simi Peters and I really hope she will merit to write many more great sefarim like these!
