Books That Should Be Written

1. The Midrash Means

The equivalent to The Midrash Says but with explanations about the meaning behind the midrash and what message it is trying to give over.

2. A collection of philosophical commentaries on the Talmud

It would be great if someone went through all of the philosophical rishonim and collected the various commentaries on Talmudic stories/aggadata, organizing them into a running commentary on the Talmud. A great commentary that explains the background to these explanations, the views it represents and any contrary views would be a great addition.

(There is no implied guarantee that Yashar Books will publish these books, if they are written.)
