The title of this book is Shiksa Goddess, and in the opening essay Wasserstein indirectly pokes fun at gentiles like Madeline Albright and Hillary Rodham Clinton–both of whom publicly announced that they had Jewish ancestors–by revealing her own "Episcopalian" roots. In what ways does Wasserstein bring a distinctly Jewish perspective to her. Basically, this book is only useful if the Jewish man in question is a living breathing As a Jew, I would not recommend this to any shiksa for reading. I have no idea how the author managed to date and know so many Jews and yet still get so much wrong/5.
