A child of three can say "thank you" to his parent, especially if the parent instructs the child to do so. As the person grows in wisdom, experience and sensitivity, his appreciation deepens. As a wise and sensitive adult, he is capable of expressing his gratitude in a more meaningful way. Most people, however, simply do not have enough time to thoroughly familiarize themselves with the fundamental halachos of brochos. A clear knowledge in these halachos, while difficult to obtain from a cursory study of Shulchan Aruch, is nevertheless very important since we are confronted with the requirement of reciting a brocha over food or drink many times daily. Many advanced students, even after much study, have difficulty applying the various rules and principles to practical situations which commonly arise. Written by the author of the widely circulated Halachos Of Muktza, this clear, concise and encompassing work provides a thorough, detailed understanding of the blessings we recite over foods and beverages. This new, one-volume edition includes both previous volumes plus the Brochos Handbook, a quick reference guide for Brocha Rishona and Brocha Acharona of over 700 foods.
