In Mind over Man, readers are given a glimpse into the perspective of a true ba’al mussar, someone whose character traits are a constant work in progress. Based on Rabbi Yechiel Perr’s daily va’adim inSefer Madreigas Ha’adam, this book aims to guide those who are looking to improve the most important and basic aspects of their lives.
Written by a talmid of Rabbi Perr, in Rabbi Perr’s signature, incisive style, Mind over Man is a book whose words will penetrate deep into the mind, heart, and soul of every G-d-fearing Jew.
Rabbi Yechiel Yitzchok Perr is the rosh yeshivah of Yeshiva Derech Ayson of Far Rockaway, a position he has held for close to half a century. Rabbi Perr is a talmid of Hagaon Harav Aharon Kotler zt”l, as well as the son-in-law of Hagaon Harav Yehudah Leib Nekritz zt”l, and grandson of Hagaon Harav Avraham Yaffen zt”l, who was the son-in-law of the Alter of Novardok zt”l. Rabbi Perr has spent decades imbibing, studying, and teaching the works and legacy of the Alter and his talmidim.
Rabbi Perr’s daily va’adim in Sefer Madreigas Ha’adam (the work recording the discourses of the Alter), and other mussarworks, are widely disseminated among his many talmidim and listeners the world over. This volume comprises a selection of his va’adim on the "Beirur Hamiddos” (Assessment and Improvement of Character Traits) section of Sefer Madreigas Ha’adam.
