The Eighth Day: The Hidden History of the Jewish Contribution to Civilization
The Eighth Day: The Hidden History of the Jewish Contribution to Civilization
by Samuel Kurinsky
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars We taught those Ancient Egyptians everyhing they knew!!!, 19 July 2014
After reading Kurinsky's other book 'The Glassmakers' some years ago, I found myself researching the availability of this book, which I already knew about, for a jewish friend from Los Angeles, and finally decided to get a copy myself. I must admit I had resisted looking at it for a long time because of his overarching thesis. The story however is fascinating and the argument & the evidence compelling. Kurinsky writes extremely clearly and coherently, reminds me a little of Buckminster Fuller in that he is precise and a little quirky in his use of language. As a non religious non zionist jew it was a bit like when I finally went to Israel recently. Actually this is my heritage, and it is something to be proud of. We taught those Ancient Egyptians everything they knew!! It's a story worth reading, and then you can make up your own mind.

The Glassmakers: An Odyssey of the Jews - The First Three Thousand Years (Hippocrene Jewish History Series)
by Samuel Kurinsky
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A story never before told, 19 July 2014
On a trip to Venice I was surprised and intrigued to meet a glass factory owner on Murano who told me that even today, it is jewish families who own most of the businesses making and selling glass on the island. On my return I resolved to do some research on the history of glass. This was the only book I found, and what a fascinating story it is, even though it ends before we even get to Venice! You are taken back in time about 5,000 years to the cradle of civilisation in Mesopotamia, where the ancestors of the jews brought the high-tech (at the time) secret of glassmaking on their travels around the fertile crescent to the Med. & beyond. This is a well-argued potboiler of a (possibly) speculative history of a story that was completely unknown, at least to me. I just wish Stanley Kurinsky was still around to write the remainder of the story! I think he has passed on but delighted to discover (as I write this) that his New York based Hebrew History Federation is back on-line!!

The laughter that comes from recognising one's own tendencies taken to the nth degree by the Professor at the centre of the story. A very very good read. Tailed off a little at the end but all in all a marvellous piece of work

Suzie Creamcheese has a great story to tell and she tells it well. In fact these days she does writing workshops for wannabe girls writers!

Massively improve your visibility by getting these in Red & White and plastering them over yourself & your bike. I have a red one on the back of my helmet and 2 white ones on the handlebars. They are so cheap you can leave them on your bike and so easy to put on/take off, you could also keep them in your pocket whilst parked on the street. I don't bother

My Mother always said I was hard on my shoes & it is still the case. I used to play football in the street with a tennis ball. Now I cycle everywhere in London and spend a lot of time squatting on my heels. This all means that shoes don't exactly look 'smart' for long, so I buy a relatively cheap shoe and change them every 4-6 months. Now I have black & brown pairs. The advantage of Padders Taxis are the thin soles which suit my barefoot leaning philosophy. I don't agree with too much cushioning. Doctor Posture the Posture Doctor

except to report that I have re-sold this book at cost to about 250 clients of mine in the last 10 years with a money back guarantee. If it doesn't make a significant difference to them they can get their money back from me. Nobody ever took me up on that (ok one did!). I tell you this is a book that transcends itself, and your mind, and speaks directly to the human being within. If you only read one book in your entire life, this is it!!!
