The Pirkei Avos Treasury, Ethics of the Fathers: The Sages Guide to Living
by Rabbi Moshe Lieber
Pub. Date: August 1995, Publisher: Mesorah Publications, Ltd.
ISBN: 0899063748
Pirkei Avos (Chapters of the Fathers) is usually called "Ethics of the Fathers." The six chapters of this Talmudic tractate have a special place in the hearts of the Jewish people. The Talmudic Sages called it simply Fathers -- or, better said, parents -- because it is the guide to behavior attitudes, civility, honor, integrity, faith, aspiration, and much more. In short, Pirkei Avos is to the Jewish people what parents are to the Jewish child. One can learn laws and facts from books, but only from parents can one learn how to integrate laws and facts into life. This large format book contains an anthologized commentary and anecdotes. It also includes an overview by Rabbi Nosson Scherman, the General Editor of Mesorah Publications.
Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money
by Rabbi Daniel Lapin
Pub. Date: September 2002, Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
ISBN: 0471218685
The ups and downs of the economy prove the principle that the more things change, the greater the need for ideas that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and culture. In Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money, Rabbi Daniel Lapin offers a practical approach to creating wealth based on the established principles of Jewish tradition. A renowned business consultant and biblical scholar, Rabbi Lapin uncovers a mother lode of wisdom and guidance in Jewish scripture and practice that will increase your potential for creating wealth, no matter what your faith or background may be.

Outlining ten fundamental "commandments" relating to business and money, Thou Shall Prosper explores the economic and philosophic vision of business that has been part of the Jewish culture for centuries. By blending contemporary business stories and his own business experiences with the wisdom of the Torah, Talmudic prescriptions, and even examples from the Zohar (the Jewish book of mysticism), Rabbi Lapin explains the essence of each "commandment" and shows you how to use this knowledge to financially prosper. Commandments include: Believe in the Dignity and Morality of Business, Do Not Pursue Perfection, and Know Your Money. Rabbi Lapin helps you understand such concepts as "being in business for yourself"; avoiding the trappings of a "wage slave"; learning to become a leader; changing with the times; and much more. So that you can apply each principle to your life, Rabbi Lapin suggests engaging and accessible action steps to start you immediately on the path to prosperity.

The principles discussed in Thou Shall Prosper may stem from Jewish culture and religion, but the desire to create wealth is universal. Anyone can learn these principles, apply them, and prosper. In following these ten money-making commandments, not only will you improve your life, you will also discover how business is the best way to "do good" while doing well and how you are in business regardless of how you earn your living. Thou Shall Prosper will change your views of money as well as attitudes towards yourself, and help you identify the critical steps that make success possible.
Torah Anthology Avoth Yalkut Me'am Lo'ez Pirkei Avot
by Rabbi Yitzchak Magriso - Edited by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan and Rabbi Shmuel Yerushalmi - Translated by David N. Barocas
Pub. Date: December 1990, Publisher: Moznaim
ISBN: 094011822X
Avoth (Pirkei Avot - The Ethics of the Fathers) is the one Talmudic tract that explores the very roots of Judaism. Of all the many commentaries written on Avoth, perhaps the clearest is that written over 300 years ago by Rabbi Yitzchak Magriso (D. 1687) as part of the famed Me'am Lo'ez series. He ferrets out the root meaning of the text, and presents it in clear, unambiguous language. Stories, parables and ethical discussions round out this text to produce a clear and highly readable book. Translated from the Ladino to English by David N. Barocas, edited into a contemporary idiom by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, it explains the text extremely lucidly.
