Even as the narrative of Rav Shmuel's life travels from Knyszyn to Baranovitch, Mir to Kobe, and Shanghai to Ocean Parkway, it really focuses on one place: a man anchored to his shtender, climbing heights and capturing new horizons all from the blatt Gemara that constantly occupied his entire being.
Here is a revealing portrait of Rav Shmuel's multi-faceted personality: incredible hasmadah and love of Torah; stalwart middas ha-emes, his glowing smile, even in the face of adversity; the indomitable spirit, fighting like a lion for his sevaros; his chesed and humility.
Packed with amazing anecdotes and powerful lessons gleaned from reliable sources - including family members and close talmidim - this gripping book is sure to leave the reader with lasting inspiration and a deeper appreciation for Torah long after the final page.
Including a 32-page full-color photo section!
