Description:

There is more to the world than we see -- if all we see is the surface. If we fail to be amazed a thousand times a day, it is only because we are so accustomed to “reality” that we fail to peel away the “is” and look for the “why.”

This book does it.

Rabbi Avrohom Katz, who is familiar to many readers as Tuvia Cohen, is a humorist, a scientist, and an excellent writer. He looks at our everyday world and sees the most unlikely things. Chapter after funny, fascinating chapter, he takes us behind the scenes of Creation and shows us the hand and the wisdom of the Creator.

He begins each chapter with a look at a familiar phenomenon or a quirk of human nature and presents it with classic dry British wit. Then he takes us beneath the surface and shows us the wisdom of the Creator. The author has the unusual knack of looking at everyday events with curiosity and vast knowledge, and then shares his observations with the rest of us.

What is this volume? It’s an unusually informative and entertaining reading experience and an eye-opening lesson in faith.

In short, it’s a pleasure!
