A profound work. I cannot recommend it more highly. I found the second part, "Siblings," especially valuable. In it Sacks leads the reader through a careful reading of the four stories of sibling rivalry in the book of Genesis: Cain and Abel, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, and Joseph and his brothers. He shows the deep relevance of these stories for overcoming conflict today. -- Important in this regard is the opening statement to the chapter, "Hard Texts": "Never say I hate, I kill, because my religion says so. Every text needs interpretation. Every interpretation needs wisdom. Every wisdom needs careful negotiation between the timeless and time."
