Midrash Shmuel is a favored classic of Torah literature on the entire Pirkei Avos, filled with guidance on every facet of spiritual growth. Midrash Shmuel: On the 48 Qualities with Which Torah Is Acquired translates and explains the words of the Midrash Shmuel on the teaching in Pirkei Avos, “Torah is acquired by means of forty-eight qualities.” It contains many unique explanations, often with surprising freshness and insight not found in the standard commentaries.
