Reviews - What do customers think about The Guide for the Perplexed [UNABRIDGED]?
A capstone of Jewish Philosophy and Thought in fine print! May 12, 2008
Moses Maimonides, Moshe ben Maimon,( 1135-1204 CE )was one of the foremost Rabbis, philosophers, theologians and Jewish legal experts of his time. His "Guide for the Perplexed" may, in many ways, be appreciated as his summa and it is full of brilliance. This particular edition however, appears to be a sort of fac-silmili of an early English version of the text. The translation's style is more Victorian than contemporary. That and the tiny type face combine to make this edition difficult to comprehend and read. It does not do justice to so important a Philosopher and Rabbi.
Bad - VERY Bad Feb 27, 2008
Little if any care has been taken in pressenting this volume. Thew contents page is poorly set out, the type face is distresingly bad, the pages have huge unnecessay margins, there is no index, and no page numbers. I am very disappointed with this book, and will be purchasing a copy from a diffrent publisher in the near future. If this is the quality of publication that can be expected fromBN Publishing I will take care not to buy from them in the future. This is the first time I have ever felt the need to leave negative feedback about the actual layout out and pressentation of a book.
