A bit of philosophy, a bit of history, a bit of religious commentary, quite a bit of personal revelation, and lots of comedy in this mostly tongue in cheek book by television director Michael Lange. You might learn a few things but you will definitely laugh your tuchis off....that's a guarantee. Mr. Lange waxes sometimes poetic, sometimes philosophical but always in a comedic fashion in his first book. It's a combination of his observations about life as a Jew in America, his dealings with his Mom and the rest of the world, and many imaginary and hilarious, sometimes outrageous conversations with people he's known and people he's not known, God and Abraham, for one. It's at once reverent and irreverent. It covers all the bases in the Jewish experience- Guilt, Sex, Authority Figures, Hypochondria, Buying Retail (a big no-no), Fishing (another no-no), Stress, Success, Finicky-ness, and Cancer. Enjoy!

About the Author

Michael Lange is one of the most sought after television directors in the industry. He basically hasn't stopped working for almost 30 years and has helmed 248 episodes of television. His credits are truly eclectic, ranging from comedies like "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Tracey Takes On" to dramas like "Brothers & Sisters", "Eli Stone", "Life Goes On" (for which he received a Humanitas Award and should have gotten an Emmy), to teen dramas like "Dawson's Creek", “The OC”, "Make It Or Break It" and "Greek" (he's Co-Executive Producer on "Greek") to Drama/Comedies like "Drop Dead Diva" (also Co-Executive Producer) and "Northern Exposure", to sci-fi like "Eureka", “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and "The X-Files". He's especially been enjoying exercising his dark side with four episodes of "Criminal Minds" in their seventh and eighth seasons. He's done it all and loves every minute, every genre, and every budget level. Michael Lange also directed JUMPING SHIP, a movie for The Disney Channel shot in Australia, MY FUTURE BOYFRIEND, a romantic comedy for ABC Family, and INTERN, an Indie feature film which premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.

Michael firmly believes, as did William Shakespeare, that the most important elements of entertainment are the play and the players. His directing and producing style supports that belief. He creates a nurturing and safe atmosphere on the set, allowing cast and crew to feel free to contribute to the work and make it their own; always under his firm but loving guidance, while demanding gently that each cast and crew member give their all to the "cause".

He also believes strongly in the movie magic. There's no reason that something can't be accomplished creatively and well with ample application of the magic!

And now he shares his observations about life and some of his showbiz anecdotes in "Musings of a Jew-ish Guy"
