Halevi is a respected authority who has written several good books on the Qabbalah. This one is a gem. The concise text introduces several key concepts of Qabbalistic thought. Like all the books in Thames & Hudson's "Art & Imagination" series, this one is profusely illustrated ---- after 30 pages of text are 60 pages of pictures & diagrams, all amply explained in accompanying notes. Most of the diagrams have the original Hebrew writing, so this book is a tremendous resource for anyone who reads Hebrew. In particular, I am a big fan of the "extended Tree of Life" diagram on p. 41, showing how the Sefirot play out in the worlds of Azilut, Beriah, Asiyyah, and Yesirah; I have never seen such a detailed diagram of this anywhere else. Between the text and the notes accompanying the diagrams, Halevi makes clear the scriptual origins of the Qabbalah, the beliefs & practices, as well as the influence of the Qabbalah on non-Jewish traditions. I think this book is a wonderful introduction for a modern reader seeking an "in" on the Qabbalah. Even after reading other books, I find myself going back to this book again and again. It is a treasure.

This book is a good suppliment to anyone studying Kabbalah. It has dozens of illustrations, going back hundreds of years. The illustrations are fairly well annotated, and the information they contain show the development and art behind kabbalistic principles from the 14th Century to modern times.

However, the "book" portion - approximately 45 pages at the beginning - is a firehose of top level information on Kabbalah. Anyone without a good background it it is likely to become lost quickly, as there isn't enough space to really provide foundational information from which the writing in the book is built. Trying ro cover the history, philosophy, anatomy, esoteric, magical, spiritual and sturctural information in 45 pages just can't be done.

Get this book for the art and the history that art represents. It is beautiful. As to being a good intro to kabbalah - I'd pass - find something else and get this as a suppliment.

A most wonderful teacher of Kabbalah and "Tree of life".
The more I read and discuss his writing with other readers of his books, the more I understand humanity.and the world we live in.
