As generally noted, one of the best introductions to Hegel around. It is very thorough, and reads well. It would be perfect for a higher undergraduate course in Hegel or the German Idealists generally, not for a first time intro to Hegel.
Among the special aspects of this text are: the clear (!) exposition of the Logic, which I have generally avoided, but Houlgate practically begins his book with the Logic, which I thought very brave of him, and he very carefully moves one through it, and links its concepts judiciously to the Phenomenology, etc.;
a sequence of chapters on The Philosophy of Nature, a neglected aspect of Hegel's work which Houlgate has done a lot of work on;
and a fair exposition of Hegel's relationship to Christianity.

The only chapter that is disappointing is the one on Art, which reveals Houlgate's pretty stodgy personal views on the shortcomings of modern art.

One level higher, bigger, and tougher than this book is Taylor's Hegel, but Taylor's book is the one I would recommend for someone who really wanted to plunge in headfirst and get excited about Hegel.

Professor Roger Scruton advises in his book "Modern Philosophy" that it's best for new students of philosophy to obtain an understanding of Hegel right at the beginning of their studies. He recommends Houlgate's introduction as a sober account of Hegelian thought. The exposition is very clear and Houlgate covers a lot of territory to provide a good general overview of Hegelian philosophy. The book probably gives enough background to prepare most readers for Hegel's History, Philosophy of Right, and Aesthetics. However, Hegel's more complicated works (like the Phenomenology of Spirit and the Science of Logic) will probably require additional support literature to fully understand. Also, I would personally recommend Michael Inwood's Hegel Dictionary to help with Hegel's complicated use of language and terminology.

Must be the best introduction to Hegel around. Author has gone to great lengths to make this famously impenetrable philosopher understandable, but much more than that why he is still very, very relevant. Hegel is the object of much derision in the philosophy world, but for my money he stands above most of them in terms of truly understanding the universe. His thinking covered just about everything (politics, God, art, space), and with penetrating insight, and yet he was under 40 when he wrote the Phenomenology of Spirit. Because it is such an impossible book to read though, you need Houlgate to show you his genius.

Required by my son's college course. Met its purpose for the the course and was a decent price to boot.
