This book, one of the Islamic entries to the Classics of Western Spirituality, consists of letters written by a 13th century Moroccan Sufi master to one of his disciples. As always, the book contains an informative introduction. I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I had more of a background in Islamic mysticism, but it was still an interesting and informative read.
