    1. I have been getting back into reading, and finished off this insight into Kabbalah recently. I have always been interested in the wisdom of the ancients, from Greek philosophy to the origins of mathematics. The deep connections between symbology and origin in general are revealed through a brief look at the works of the Zohar and the Bible, while making links to modern-day relationships between the weirdness of quantum physics and the eternal oneness of the Hindu and Buddhist religions. I feel w [...]


    2. I enjoyed the explanations of brief Zohar passages in this book and was impressed with Berg's knowledge and passion, but the book is about one-third an explanation of the Zohar and two-thirds exhortations to lead a better life guided by spiritual exploration. I do think the book offers a lot for its size. But I would like a bit more depth and a good deal less sermonizing.I also recommend that readers learn at least a bit about traditional Talmudic commentary (the logic and methods it uses) becau [...]


    3. Great Introductory readingA good introduction to the Zohar and Jewish mysticism. Not very deep for those with a decent metaphysical background. An enjoyable and informative book that leaves me desiring to learn more. Easy to understand and well written. Personally I would have liked to have seen the author go a bit deeper in the first couple of chapters, but overall I was pleased. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more on the topic of the Zohar.


    4. An excellent source for Kabbalistic interpretations of the capital "B" Bible, and a good way of thinking metaphorically.


    5. The book itself is well written, but I think that the Zohar and I are just not gonna be friends. Everything in here seems devoted to wringing meaning from a text that's just plain not there -- or worse, that is opposite to its plain meaning -- for no reason except to justify a belief that the Torah MUST contain the secrets of the universe. A Mormon like me sees the entire exercise as "looking beyond the mark" (Jacob 4:14) and "wresting" the scriptures (Alma 13:20).


    6. I found it suitable as an introduction to Kabbalah, but it barely scratched the surface on many concepts because each chapter would have more sermonizing than information and insight to share. I would certainly recommend others to read it, but personally I was expecting more out of this book than what I got.


    7. Brilliant book, extremely illuminatingPerfect for the seeker, this book gives an insight into the true nature of the spiritual world, a better explanation of duality, and how best to circumnavigate the physical world.



    8. An introduction to the study of the Zohar. Berg's writing is clear and well organized, a great improvement over many other books with a similar aim.


    9. I found this book to be both engaging and enlightening. As brief overview of the timeless wisdom of Kabbalah, this book explores the principles of that study and expands the both the image of and the understanding of the concepts of God as a universal, infinite being. What i like most about this book, and the other books of Kabbalah that I have previously read, is the way that Kabbalah creates a beautiful and poetic story of God, rather than a harsh and stoic one. I was also rather pleased to kn [...]


    10. An interesting, but ultimately fatalistic book, about the Zohar, which is a Kabbalistic book supposedly about the Scriptures. It seems to be a mixture of Scripture, conjecture, fantasy, myth, legend, and sages interpretations and understandings. I really didn't like it.


    11. this was my first introduction to the kabbalah/zohar. i just don't know what to think. of this book seems utterly insane to me. i bought several other books on kabbalah along with this one and am about to start anotherwe'll see how that goes.


    12. i have taken on the task to read at least one book on every religion--beginning with the perceived "weird ones". this will be my first.





    13. Awesome book for whoever wants to have little bit from everything in the Zohar. It show passages every chapter and explain it to be practical in our everyday life.5 STARS !!!!!!


    14. I've been reading this incrementally for a couple of years. It will always have a place on my night stand; it offers power after a hard day.
