"History of Philosophy" is the best place to begin teaching yourself Hegelian dialectics, because Hegel develops his own theory through the negation of other philosophies from Confucian to Platonic, and from the Medieval Scholasticism to German idealism of F.W.J. Schelling. In other words, you learn Hegel's system by reading him point out exactly what he believes to be wrong in other philosophical systems. Unfortunately, the "History of Philosophy" has been neglected by the majority of Hegelian scholars, even if it provides the most Hegelian method for learning Hegel himself--through the process of negation.
Tabak's book is the only comprehensive study of the "History of Philosophy". He provides the reader with a section-by-section analysis of Hegel's inquiry of the world's greatest philosophers. Instead of injecting his own beliefs, Tabak remains faithful to the text, acting as an unbiased investigator. He rigorously dissects the text and brings the crucial ideas and passages to forefront, so that the reader can comprehend the complicated dialectical reasoning of Hegel. So for example, in Hegel's section on Gorgias, Tabak presents his two ontological critiques and his epistemological critique. Then, he proceeds to examine their logic from Hegel's perspective. His method is one of explanation, quote and concluding explanation. It is an invaluable method for understanding the difficult arguments of ontology and epistemology. Without this method, you might yourself lost in the intricate philosophies Hegel engages with.
By learning what Hegelian dialectics is not, you will learn precisely what it is, and Mehmet Tabak will be there to guide you through the dark and perilous labyrinth every step of the way.
