Qabalah has become very popular these days, so a simple primer is always going to be well received. Avoiding the dry approach that characterises so many books on Qabalah, Ted Andrews presents bite-size chunks of information, enabling the reader to come to terms with the concepts at a gentle pace.
This has the result of imparting more information than you realise, and in the eight sections the author manages to cover most of the basics of Qabalah, laying the groundwork for the reader to further their studies with a reasonable grounding. A good introductory book for those wishing to find out what the Qabalah is about.
