From the Publisher:

An informative jaunt through the religious experience, ceremony, and tradition of the esoteric Hasidic communities of the world.

From the Back Cover:

Boychiks in the Hood is your passport to the Hasidic "underworld" - a destination far different from popular expectations. When Robert Eisenberg, a secular Jew from Omaha, Nebraska, decided to investigate his family's distant Satmar connections, he unknowingly embarked on a journey that would carry him around the world and into the hearts and lives of the Hasidim. Armed with a loving curiosity and the Yiddish his grandmother taught him as a child, Eisenberg found himself intimately drawn into the sometimes nutty, often inspiring, lives of these most traditional of Jews. Join Eisenberg as he hangs out with an ex-Deadhead in Antwerp, makes a pilgrimage to the grave of the revered Rebbe Nachman in the Ukraine, munches mini-bagels with Roller-blading kosher butchers in Minnesota, talks about sex with a karate champion turned rabbi in Israel, and more.
