Uncomfortable Conversations with a Jew

New Release!

From two New York Times bestselling authors, a timely, disarmingly honest, and thought-provoking investigation into antisemitism that connects the dots between the tropes and hatred of the past to our current complicated moment.

For Emmanuel Acho and Noa Tishby no question about Jews is off-limits. They go there. They cover Jews and money. Jews and power. Jews and privilege. Jews and white privilege. The Black and Jewish struggle. Emmanuel asks, Did Jews kill Jesus? To which Noa responds, “Why are Jewish people history’s favorite scapegoat?” They unpack Judaism itself: Is it a religion, culture, a peoplehood, or a race? And: Are you antisemitic if you’re anti-Zionist?

There are only two things left on earth for humans to defy: gravity… and logic. While I can’t help you with the former, once you’ve finished reading, Illogical, gravity will be your only limitation left. You have a unique ability that can impact your world and change the world. I recently figured this out on my own personal journey, and it’s time to reveal the secret. The business you’ve been too scared to start, that career change you’ve been hesitant to make or that dream you wanted to pursue since you were a child is yours for the taking, but it falls on the other side of your logic. The truth is, all of our greatest accomplishments land on the other side of logic and the world’s conventional wisdom.

To those of you who desire to live the life of your wildest dreams, it’s simple- get Illogical.

Emmanuel Acho creates a dialogue that is honest, straightforward, and accessible to those seeking answers. This is a conversation that needs to happen to mend the racial divide in our world.
