    The book is a masterpiece that should serve as a Shulchan Aruch for any thinking Jew in the workplace for many years to come.

    If you are a man who believes shaking a woman's hand at work is forbidden, or permissible only in the most extenuating circumstances, you will love this book!

  • Essential read for every working adult

    Making It Work is not only an enjoyable read, it is also a clear and concise handbook essential for anyone working in a modern workplace. Addressing issues like davening, yichud, shaking hands, and making a kiddish H-Shem, Rabbi Wasserman's real-life examples and entertaining anecdotes add a humorous and relatable component. It certainly has clarified and informed my role as a Jewish professional in ways I had not expected. I highly recommend it to working adults regardless of age.
