This book, Kabbalah for Beginners by Michael Laitman, is a well written, interesting, and challenging book for those interested in Kabbalah. While the subject of Kabbalah is somewhat daunting, this book took the concepts and made them accessible while still explaining them in full. I would heartily recommend this book as a place to begin for anyone who is in the least bit interested in this ancient wisdom. Kabbalah is often related with the Old Testament, but it is much more - able to shed light on our current situation and point to a way out of the world's trouble. For the individaul seeker, it begins to answer the question we may have all asked "what is my life for, why am I on earth?".
