There is not any praise I can throw at this Poet that he has already not received. Just a heads up for people who do not know any Urdu - even though the translation is superb, the essence is a little lost in translation. But for people who know Urdu (or some Urdu) and enjoy poetry, this book will be one of the best you will ever read. In my personal opinion, Urdu is the best language for poetry and this poet's work is much deeper and broader and beautiful than even likes of Shakespeare's.
