Traces the evolution of various forms of kabbalah, outlining the early period of biblical and talmudic cosmology and using ideas developed during the medieval era to set forth a kabbalistic view of the origins and structure of existence.
From the Back Cover
Kabbalah is the mystical aspect of Judaism. In biblical, metaphysical and practical terms, it formulates a personal teaching: the attributes of the Divine, the nature of the universe and the destiny of man.See all Product description

However, the "book" portion - approximately 45 pages at the beginning - is a firehose of top level information on Kabbalah. Anyone without a good background it it is likely to become lost quickly, as there isn't enough space to really provide foundational information from which the writing in the book is built. Trying ro cover the history, philosophy, anatomy, esoteric, magical, spiritual and sturctural information in 45 pages just can't be done.
Get this book for the art and the history that art represents. It is beautiful. As to being a good intro to kabbalah - I'd pass - find something else and get this as a suppliment.
