This was an excellent book. I read it on Kindle and the format was great. This is definitely a book that seems short and easy to read, but each page is deeply thought-provoking. In fact, it is a book I hope to re-read soon to ponder upon its pages once again. Quite lovely for those seeking a path through the heart's desires for personal suluk, but best read with a teacher or beloved spiritual friend in my personal opinion.

A great primer on understanding the evil of our own selves.

It's a step towards understanding oneself better and using the treatment to work on ourselves. Identify the infamies within yourself and try to apply the treatment offered in this book.
