If you do read the book though, I warn you not to get this version. It is conveniently "abridged", with the translator leaving out major sections like that on Christianity, substituting a few pages with [a summary a few words long in brackets]. This version is intended to not be objectionable to the most Orthodox of Jewish readers who won't even tolerate a description of another religion when it's presented in context and even declared wrong along side. So skip this version and get one by a more academic publisher.
I was abit disappointed though with the condition of the book I purchased. It was listed as new but had some dents on the top and bottom of the binding and some of the pages had dirt or food spots on them.
If you study Kabbalah or Hermetics, you will really enjoy this because Yehudah was a Kabbalist and wrote many of the prayers in today's siddurs. His poems were sometimes sexual in their context. He was also a doctor and knew the language well. He was open to others and made friends of everyone in fact lived among Muslims as a Sephardic Jew.
