Publisher's Summary

With characteristic lucidity and style, Steiner makes Heidegger's immensely difficult body of work accessible to the general reader. In a new introduction, Steiner addresses language and philosophy and the rise of Nazism.
"It would be hard to imagine a better introduction to the work of philosopher Martin Heidegger." (George Kateb, The New Republic)

Because of the complexity of Heidegger's rhetoric I would suggest getting the print book and reading along with the narrator. The narrator did a great job pronouncing the German expressions.
