  • The best "How to Learn Gemorah" book!

    The book relays several dozen phrases which are used over and over in the Gemorah to alert the reader what is happening in the sugiya, such as a refute that will not be accepted, etc. This book explains these and gives examples. If one masters this book--which you can't just read this once but need use concurrently over time while learning Gemorah--then one will be able to independently study any section of the Talmud (minus odd-ball vocab). This book is the "master key" on how to read the Gemorah.

    Do you do Daf Yomi? Do you use the Art Scroll?

    Do you think you get what's going on?

    Nope - we don't. We haven't even touched the surface. (Well maybe the surface)

    This book is amazing - start applying it to every Sugia u learn and all of a sudden a whole new level shows up.

    The book shows u a whole different view of the same Gemmara. By unveiling the structure - u see what is really happening and why its happening.

    Beware - it will take absorb u till all u want is to go back and start all over again.

    I just started using. I took a small portion - in the Art Scroll - white space to white space. And then started to break the structure apart. And it was amazing what u will find there!!!
