Here is an amazing book I read recently by Rabbi Dan Roth, it's called Relevance -Pirkei Avos for the 21st century. It shows the real depth and breadth of Torah wisdom as demonstrated in Pirkei Avos (the Ethics of the Fathers) and how it applies to many facets of modern life. It covers among other things the significance of various life stages and the spiritual journey, human relationships, communication, the psychology of friendship and much, much more. There are enough lessons, mussar, psychology, interdisiplinary ideas, etc in there for a couple of lifetimes. The above link will take you to the book website with an excerpt, reviews, blurbs,etc. Enjoy!!!
