To fully incorporate the laws of proper speech into our lives, we must first understand and sensitize ourselves to the importance of watching our words. With a clear and concise English translation facing the large-type, vowelized Hebrew, Mazal Elul is user-friendly and easy to read. Volume One of this two volume boxed set discusses sayings from Chazal concerning guarding one's speech, the great reward awaiting those who sanctify their speech by speaking words of Torah, and other character traits one can acquire that will make it easier to discipline one's speech. Volume Two explains the portions in the Torah that discuss proper speech. Only if we understand the reasons for guarding our speech, will we be able to fully achieve this lofty goal.
