Tznius -- modesty -- is an integral facet of Jewish life. In a world where modesty is recognized more by its absence than by its presence, there has never been a greater need for a definitive work on this vital quality. But what precisely are the laws of modesty, what are its parameters, where are its applications? In this long-awaited work, the laws and ideology of modesty are tackled in an exhaustive and comprehensive manner. All the laws of Tznius, whether in dress or behavior, speech and social interaction, are collated and explained in the clear and lucid manner that is characteristic of the author. -- Back cover.

This book is on a very high level of tznius . If you feel that this book is not on the right level for YOU, don't read it and certainly don't say loshon hara about it. I highly recommend this book for people on a high level of tznius.
