From Library Journal:

With his son, Noam, prolific rabbi-scholar Jacob Neusner (Judaism's Theological Voice, LJ 4/1/95) has compiled and edited an anthology of maxims, apothegms, and sayings of Jewish wisdom extracted from the Talmud and Midrash. Wisdom is defined as the power of judging rightly and following the soundest course of action. The Neusners treat subjects ranging from arrogance to charity, justice to love, discretion to forgiveness. Perhaps the most worthwhile part of the book is the introduction, wherein the editors describe the unique structure and character of the Talmud and Jewish wisdom. As far as the collection itself goes, it is redundant. Most of the material can be found in many other books describing the aggadah or nonlegalistic parts of the Talmud. As a result, this is recommended only for all-inclusive Judaica collections.
