Maggy has outdone the best introductions to doing Kabbalah that existed less than half a century ago. It is such a joy. The book is beautiful on every level which is a tribute not only to her but also the designers and publishers. If you want to understand "what's the fuss about Kabbalah?" it will tell you and there are scores of applications for your life. Maggy is not only scholarly but walks the talk herself and it shows. Her perspective is that of an independent Christian Minister who has studied the Toledano tradition of Warren Kenton (who has pioneered modern awareness of applications of the Extended Tree or Jacob's Ladder), so it is quite literally a product of the Judeo-Christian tradition. If you took one Kabbalah book to a desert island you'd likely want this one.
