How to Pray as a Jew

How to Pray as a Jew is a comprehensive guide to the orthodox siddur.  For those who attend orthodox services, or prayer at home, this book does not have all that much to offer; it does delve a bit into the history of the siddur's composition, but not to any great extent.

For the rank beginner, the major drawback of this book is that the author does not explain the siddur in order, but by level of importance.  So, for those not familiar with siddur, having one handy while reading this book is key.
