I struggled with the Phenomenology of Spirit for months before deciding I needed a commentary explicating the book section by section, rather than a general overview. I found Lauer's book to be very helpful, maybe essential, to me in making any sense of Hegel's book. Even at that, there were many times I needed to reread Lauer's commentaries because many of the passages in the Phenomenology which he's trying to explain are extremely difficult if not incomprehensible. Not only Hegel's language but his concepts are often very obscure; even statements of those concepts in plainer language, as Lauer attempts, are bound to be often difficult to understand. Lauer is refreshingly honest in admitting when Hegel has hit the limits of comprehensibility, and he bravely soldiers on to offer possible intepretations for the baffled reader. His interpretations may or may not jibe with those of other Hegel commentators--I don't know, I'm no Hegel scholar--but they get one through the Phenomenology, and at the end, when he summarizes the Preface (in true Hegelian form the Preface comes at the end of the book), his conclusions seem more than plausible.

Even with this commentary it took me a very long time to get through the Phenomenology, but Lauer's book was a great help.

Quentin Lauer is one of the best writers on Hegel. Read his other books too. Especially the "Essays in Hegelian Dialectic" among others.

Hegel is difficult to understand at first, Mr. Lauer makes the task a bit easier. Although more introductory materials may be needed for most readers before this one is read.
