In The Private Adam, the noted rabbi and social commentator Shmuley Boteach reflects on the role of the hero in contemporary culture and contends that the media celebrates and rewards the values of the classical hero -- the aggressive macho warrior of ancient Rome who is motivated solely by self-promotion -- and that the glorification of this figure has rendered us a crueler, harsher, and more shallow society. In contrast, Boteach celebrates the Private Adam, the everyday men and women whose heroism stems from their lives of selfless actions and small sacrifices, even if an equestrian statue will not be erected in their honor. lluminated with inspiring examples from history and contemporary life and filled with valuable advice, The Private Adam is Boteach's most thoughtful book yet.
