The brief opening introductions to each chapter by the editors are very helpful and provide both a good overview of the relevant ideas and many thought-provoking points for readers to consider.
I definitely recommend this volume for either those folks who read "Being and Time" and are looking for more substance beyond that volume's present structure, fans of "Being and Time," and those who may shy away from "Being and Time," but still want to get a taste of Heidegger in a somewhat approachable text and from the source. Also, if anyone would like strategies for approaching "Being and Time," I wrote a blog with suggestions on my website, which can be reached through my Amazon community page: just click on the website on my community page, which you can get to by clicking my name above this review.
