These books literally saved my life!!! As a youth in NCSY in the late 80's and early 90's I was looking for a deeper and more profound connection to Hashem and my true purpose in life. I discovered Breslov along with these books by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan. With Rabbi Kaplan quoting left and right from Breslov literature I became more confident in the path I wanted to take in life. These books are a must for anyone needing guidelines to basic judaic concepts. His clear and straghtforward language hits the right cords of the neshama. Till today I am left with the powerful impression of these books, and still subconciously refer to them.
