Subject:  A book
Message:  I was reading several pages of a book that belongs to a friend of mine and I found it somewhat interesting. I do not speak hebrew very well to begin with and my attention span isn't that long when reading translations for example Artscroll. I just wanted to know if the book is "Kosher" before I bought it. Its called Biblical Literacy by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. If this book is not good, can you suggest on that is more suitable.     

Thanks a lot.

PS: I do not mean to substitute this book for learning all together. I do feel like after reading it, it may make my learning easier all together.
Reply:  I don't know that Author/Book. Work on your Hebrew. Then you can see the truth for yourself. Your main focus of Torah Study should be the Laws. Not Talmud or anything else.
