The Jewish Self
I am reading this great book The Jewish Self by Rabbi Jeremy Kagan which is really perfect for Elul and introspection. It's philosophy, history and musar all rolled into one. It's kind of a heavy read but it's beautifully written and has ideas that are absolutely astounding practically on every page. It was published in 1998. It's real hashgacha that I found it now in a local book g'mach, it's such a delicious read. And what's better, you can preview the whole thing on google books and here is the link. So if you like philosophy, history and jewish thought, give it a try, it's chuck full of amazing insights just in time for Rosh Hashana.
