5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Bde Wall on 24 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is very small, only 33 pages long, but it is a great outline of hasidism and its thoughts on how people are best able to live in a fulfilled way with others and before God. Taking us through each step, using traditional tales of the chassidim to illustrate clearly, Buber presents what he believes 'the way of man' is (meaning how people can flourish in the world before God). It is indeed a book about how to truely be yourself in fullness. Rabbi Zusya is quoted "In the world to come I shall not be asked: "Why were you not Moses?" I shall be asked "Why were you not Zusya?" ".

The book is not at all difficult to read, and certainly not just for hasidic jews. I am not, and I still find Buber enormously enjoyable to read and insightful. I would also highly recommend his book 'Between Man and Man' to anyone interested in Buber's social philosophy.

I found this little gem of a book through a number of citations within Stewardship by Peter Block. It was offered to him as a gift and he suggests the same sentiment is extended to others.

Potential readers should not be deterred by the theological philosophy. In just 33 pages, 6 stories are told with a gentle warmth, tentatively explained with a deep and powerful wisdom which for me transcends any religious contexts, giving an opportunity for simple personal enlightenment.

A true gift of a book.

The wisdom of Buber 18 May 2007
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Buber is one of the great original thinkers of modern Judaism. He reads here six Hasidic tales and infuses them with his own fundamental perceptions as to the nature of the religious life. He writes with grace and power. And there is in his interpretations and retellings a sense of the holy and the inspired.
the true road less travelled 21 Jun. 2013
By Dr. Stephen Muse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach a graduate counseling course on Martin Buber's anthropology and philosophy of dialogue as it illumines the art and science of pastoral counseling. A rabbi at a workshop I did for military chaplains told me about it. It is a gem - one of the top ten books I have ever read. It is without question my favorite book of Buber's ouvre. All of 41 pages, it sets forth in very simple and poignant way, the essence of the I-Thou encounter rooted in the personal dialogue between God and humanity. If you want to read the Bible in order to realize that God is not an idea or a belief but One wh is wholly "Other" yet approaching you directly, intimately and accompanying you every minute of life, read this book. If you want to enter the "way" that leads to becoming fully human and living with others in real community, read this book. In our age of information acquisition and craving for new experiences to break through the numbing of our hearts, and the sleep of our conscience, what Buber speaks about in the "Way of Man" is truly an invitation to the "road less travelled."
A breathtaking reading 5 July 2012
By Grosz Frideric Ivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Martin Buber is one of the greatest thinkers of all times. I think that nobody approached the question of human existence, with so much understanding, warm and humanity. He fills with meaning the man's life. This book is a masterpiece. I recommand if for reading and education.
