This book is among my very favourites of the impressive routledge classics series. Whilst I am neither a convert to Judaism or an existentialist, there is plenty here to use in your relation to other people and the world in general in your everyday life. This text develops the concepts in his book 'I and Thou', expanding the relevance of the dialogical principle into fields such as education. I have recently discovered that the I-Thou concept has been used in childhood psychology studies to good effect (e.g. the work of Fogel & Garvey). Do read this book, it genuinely could change your outlook on life in general in a positive way.

After assimilating his concepts as expressed in I and Thou, I found Between Man and Man profound, well worth the struggle to comprehend; two readings and many long pauses were necessary. A read for all people - a window into relationships, what they mean for each of us, what contact really means; a way to touch the soul of another human being - wonderful.

I'm afraid I found this book heavy going. I appreciate the basic message, which is simple enough, but the style is impossibly turgid. One day I'll give it another try.

I was very happy with the product, which matched the original description. It was in good condition, and arrived in good time. I was very keen to obtain a copy of this volume, a collection of pieces by Buber in English translation, with a useful introduction. My own copy was falling apart with overuse. The service on the part of Amazon was quick and reliable.
