If you do read it, don't worry about getting it in the original German. I have it on good authority that German philosophy students are often given English translations of Heidegger because they're more readable.

You might also try Heidegger: A Very Short Introduction. I have the book, although I don't think I ever read it; but it is short, deals mainly with the ideas (whatever they are) of "Being and Time", and the reviews on Amazon are favourable.

Having attempted Heidegger in English, I can only shudder at what the German versions are like.
