   Brilliant exposition by Rabbi.
Today, Rabbi Sacks, a leading intellectual and a powerful voice for Judaism, brings his original insights on leadership through the books of Moses. After reading this book, I have seen the leadership among the BooM heroes in a fresh perspective. Unless God and His Word are at the center of a leader's life, coupled with lots of reading, discussion, delegation and sensitivity to history and people and of course character, the leader will fall into the rocks of reality. Read this book to learn how all this plays out. Must have

   A truly valuable series of Lessons in Leadership as revealed in Biblical studies.
I've focused pretty well on the Sacks presentation on Deuteronomy, since I am scheduled to present a class on this in the near future. I like his presentation '', because it offers a slightly different perspective than many other works. The attributes of a true leader are delineated according to Scripture, so that it follows my lesson plan for an adult Sunday school class. From a Christian perspective, I won not have the time available to delineate all the significant points I might have in weekly parashah readings, but Moses'lessons on leadership, as recognized by Sacks, will really offer much to those who are trying to get ahead in whatever field they are in, I highly recommend this book for all those who are striving to get ahead, whatever their field of endeavor.

   Excellent study text
It is easy to write on a weekly basis because the level of digestion is high. These essays will enable you to think more deeply and more broadly about many biblical issues, even on those you have already developed an understanding and opinion.

   Brilliant
Brilliant inspiring educational, just like Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, z & L, whom I miss dearly. Because of COVID-19, I don 't attend the temple, so I supplement my prayers by reading Lessons in Leadership to give insights into the Parsha.

   Great for anyone in an emerging/established leadership role!
Fantastic! Wonderful! I enjoy looking at leadership through the eyes of biblical stories and the contemporary stories through the lenses of biblical leadership challenges. I pick this book once every 1-2 weeks and take 10-15 minutes to read a chapter. One of the best uses of 15 minutes in my time-constrained schedule, absolutely.

   Great insights and great writing.
For more than 30 years, I have been a leadership trainer, consultant, and coach and these books are one of the best I ever read. It is a Jewish perspective on the Torah and, as a lifelong Christian, aligns with my faith and my professional experience, bringing them together in a marvelous way that enriches both. I have recommended it to several who are already reading and enjoying it.

   Relate to the Torah
The essays are provoking and, if so, excellently written. It brings the biblical part of the weekly to life. It allows you to connect to Judaism and live life authentically. It makes the characters of the Torah releasable and human.

   Perspective on the greatest story ever told
Rabbi Sacks'Expositions are so insightful you wonder why you don 't see yourself revealing this insight. Every essay is contemporary, yet with a timeless perspective. It is a must read for those looking for a simple way to live life to the fullest.
