Thomas Cahill’s The Gifts of the Jews

Now's a good time to buy or borrow a book your friends and colleagues have raved about for a quarter century and you still haven’t gotten around to reading: "The Gifts of the Jews: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels," by Thomas Cahill, who died at 82 last year. First published by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday in 1999. 304 pages. Cahill wrote the Hinges of History series, the best popular history series you can read. This is his best book. Please buy it, read it and read again.
