I just finished reading the book, The Gift of the Jews: How a Tribe of Desert Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks & Feels. It was an extremely interesting read, but for me personally, it was a difficult read. I just didn’t have enough background schema to initially understand some of the concepts that we’re being presented.
On many occasions, I had to stop reading to look up a word, a location, or a concept, and that really slowed down my comprehension. With that said—I can proudly say that I finally finished the book and I learned a lot!
