This is not an academic or lay explanation of Kabbala. Rather the author tries bring the reader inside. He couches mysticism in scientific terms, and then tries to make logical arguments that "follow" from his postulates. It didn't work for me. I found it difficult to follow his arguments; it all seemed like pseudo-scientific nonsense. Still the overall message of ego-less love is valid and interesting, so I didn't can the book entirely.

Where does Basic Concepts in Kabbalah rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This was the best 3 hours I have EVER spent listening to a teacher - any teacher.Anytime Rabbi is willing to share his wisdom and learning I will be content at his fee:at once lost to this world and introduced and welcomed into the next. In the back of my mind I knew to be a Rabbi was for the few, the gifted, but I was still amazed by the scholarship. Amazed and I could not bear to waste a minute doing anything else but to listen. I walked away like a man bloated by a feast. Dazed and delighted.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Basic Concepts in Kabbalah?
When Rabbi told me what was promised- and more! Why. He could say Why!
Have you listened to any of Tony Kosinec’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
A beautiful rendition. The words difficult to pronounce, but seemingly effortless to Mr. Kosinec. He must be a very, very learned man.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
YES! I could not bear to waste time doing anything else. I absorbed it all like a sponge. Clearly and easily. I was like an honored guest at a rich man's feast .I had never seen such as was on the table for me and I could not resist the invitation to take my fill.
Any additional comments?
I will never be able to re-pay your kindness, Rabbi. I do hope you take delight in my joy of receiving.
