From what I understand regarding what is available for an introduction to the Masorah, it is the best for the following reasons:
(1) It does not give too much material for an introduction. Out of 241 pages, only 68 pages are the actual introduction. Pages 69-241 include a well done and thorough Glossary of the Hebrew terms and Hebrew abbreviations found in the Masorah, an extensive Bibliography, and a Scripture index.
(2) It does not require any prior exposure to Masorah studies.
(3) It is well written and easy to follow, with sufficient examples given throughout.
(4) It is quite scholarly; there will be no doubt that the authors are very knowledgeable and experienced. Additionally, it is well documented with many footnotes.
There are only two shortcomings in this reviewer's opinion, one minor and one major. The minor shortcoming is that some of the Hebrew terms and abbreviations found in the Masorah are not defined when presented in the examples. This can be remedied, however, if the reader is aware that the terms and abbreviations can be found in the Glossary. The major shortcoming is that there is no index of English terms. For example, if we want to find the discussion or discussions on Aaron ben Asher or Leningradensis or contra textum, there is no way to locate this material. Hopefully the authors will be able to add an English topic index to a second edition.
I found this book so helpful that I would encourage all those who have had little or no exposure to Masorah studies and who would like a thorough grasp of our BHS to obtain it.
