Hello! I am a non-Jewish person who is interested in reading at least some of the Talmud (I enjoy reading a variety of religious texts, as odd as that may sound). I was doing some looking, and I found this version (The Talmud: A Selection translated by Norman Solomon). I was wondering if anyone was familiar with it, and if so, if you would recommend it to a casual reader with a modest amount of knowledge about Judaism?
