3 of 5 Unmet Expectations July 21, 2011
Reviewer: Patty Breton from Edmonton, AB Canada  
I started this book with eager anticipation hoping for a clear and concise list of Kabbalah's basic concepts.  While there is a chapter towards the end of the book devoted specifically to this, I found the mix of simple language and complex concepts used throughout the book didn't really meet the needs of either the beginner to Kabbalah studies or the advanced student.  While the language was simplified for beginners, the concepts and terminology were not adequately addressed to provide a solid understanding to a beginner.  On the other hand, the concepts familiar to adanced students were presented in such a basic manner that meaningful nuances were not available to the reader at all.  Overall, my expectations based on the title were not met, leaving me with a sense of disappointment.

5 of 5 Basic Concepts in Kabbalah May 25, 2010
Reviewer: Jim McClaren from St. Louis, MO United States  
Modern science is a wonderful thing. Using the scientific method man has investigated the world around him and discovered why and how all sorts of things do what they do when observed through our five senses. However the question of why anything exists at all has not been answered.  Kabbalah says this is because we need to develop a sixth sense in order to reveal the answer to this ancient and persistent query. The Michael Laitman book Basic Concepts in Kabbalah was written to start the growth of such an additional sense in the reader.

Even though this is a small book comparing it to Kabbalah for the Student, Shamati or Attaining the Worlds Beyond it provides an introductory insight to delve into more complex books, this book has a special feeling to it. I recommend it after going through Attaining the Worlds Beyond.

I have already read some books about Kabbalah from different authors. The books from Dr. Michael Laitmann are like a new generation of explanatory books about Kabbalah.
He explains what Kabbalah really is. Written in a clear language, with simple words revealing complex connections so that also for the layman everything becomes easily understandable. "Basic Concepts in Kabbalah" is an introduction to the topic Kabbalah without empty esoteric phrases and incomprehensible secretiveness. This book offers to everyone who has the desire to explore spirituality Kabbalah in a very clear structure as well as the necessary knowledge.

'Basic Concepts in Kabbalah' provides the reader with an inner observation of each concept presented for authentic study of Kabbalah. One reading of the book and you'll find yourself returning to these topics and terms again and again -- each time receiving a clearer sense of what already surrounds us, yet only needing us to perceive it correctly.
