Rabbi Yeshaya Fruchter '90YC has published a 2-volume work on daf yomi in memory of his father, Harav Shmuel Aharon Fruchter. Entitled Chizuk Shmuel, the aim of the sefer is to make daf yomi study transformational by identifying a topic on each daf in Berachos and Shabbos, and using it as a springboard to develop mussar and hashkafic insights. The thesis is that, along with classics like Mesilas Yesharim and Chovos Halevavos, Gemara study can also serve as a daily source of mussar, hashkafah, and chizuk.
