He interwove his own commentary into the narrative, adding richness and depth to its message.This English translation of Reb Shimshon’s work brings Rebbe Nachman’s teachings to an even wider, worldwide audience.

Here is a book that has gone through numerous permutations – from language to language, from country to county – yet remains a fresh and contemporary guide for everyone who seeks meaning and fulfillment in life.
We’ve called this work A Bit More Advice, because it expands on the gems of practical advice first compiled by Reb Noson in his Hebrew-language work, Likutey Etzot (Advice). That book, in turn, was based on Rebbe Nachman’s lessons in Likutey Moharan. A century later, Reb Shimshon Barski, a direct descendant of Rebbe Nachman, translated selections of Likutey Etzot into Yiddish to make them more accessible to the Jews of his day. He interwove his own commentary into the narrative, adding richness and depth to its message. Today, with the translation of Reb Shimshon’s work into English, the circle widens so that English speakers everywhere can read and appreciate the sage ideas of Rebbe Nachman that found new expression through Reb Noson and Reb Shimshon.
With its engaging, conversational style, A Bit More Advice takes in the scope of Jewish living and offers invaluable perspectives on topics such as Truth and Faith, Eating, Hospitality, Land of Israel, Encouragement, Money and Livelihood, Thoughts and Fantasies, Controversy and Strife, Torah Study, and Prayer. The selections are all short and to the point—perfect for daily study or quick review.
It has never been easier to study the ideas of Rebbe Nachman. A foreign language or old-fashioned print no longer stand in the way of those who wish to read and enjoy the Rebbe’s refreshing insights. Set in a highly readable and graphically pleasing volume, A Bit More Advice is a welcome addition to every English-language Breslov library.
