이 책은 지금까지 내가 만난 책 중에서 가장 인상적인 책이다. 나는 다른 책들의 목록을 통해 이 책을 소개받았다. 이 책을 찬사하는 수많은 참조기사가 나를 놀라게 했다. 본서를 습득한 이래 실로 저자는 엄청 해박하고 논리정연하여 내가 본 어떤 저작물보다 최고다.
*Aryeh Kaplan has produced an incredibly brilliant scholarly work within the pages of this commentary of the Sefer Yetzirah. The Appendix includes variant texts, as well as a complete listing of the 231 gates. Rich with diagrams and charts, Rebbe Kaplan explains this ancient book thoroughly. A must-read for anyone interested in Jewish mystical thought!

what can i say? this book is truly inspiring. while it is helpful to have some background in kabbalah prior to reading it, it contains incredible revelations into the creation of the universe and the creative forces available to man. This book opened my mind to the understanding of kabbalistic teachings which i have been studying for quite a while. you'll be reading this book many times to derive the meaning behind the words. it is a definite requirement for anyone seriously interested in delving deeper into the mysteries of kabbalah and jewish mysticism.

Rabbi Kaplan, Z"L, makes a great insight on this short, but extremely deep book. He uses his knowledge in physics to make us approach to such a very ancient text in today's language. Basically a meditative text, Kaplan suggests its basic applications as well as an insight on how to make a Golem. Anyway, as he states elsewhere in this, and his other titles, all these practices should be treated with maturity and some respect (if you don't believe in this stuff's truth, just skip that), for you can get psychologically or spiritually damaged. Absolutely recommendable.
