Hoffman’s clas­sic work on Kab­bal­ah and psy­chol­o­gy was a great con­tri­bu­tion to learn­ing and cre­ative thought when it was first released and it still has a sig­nif­i­cant impact on both these dis­ci­plines. This 25th Anniver­sary Edi­tion, com­plete with a new intro­duc­tion, remains one of the best works avail­able in these fields. 

Hoff­man gleans impor­tant lessons from Kab­bal­ah and then applies them to human behav­ior. He shows how one can learn about the psy­che through eso­teric Jew­ish dis­ci­pline. His book is a clear and effec­tive tool that blends two very imper­fect studies.
