This is a great book, it's a little difficult to understand unfortunately unless you are familiar with the language of contemplatives. Even once you're familiar with their language, it's still a little difficult to follow... I think my brain got stretch marks from reading it. I do recommend it though... The Author starts off with the same poem that is found in his highly celebrated work "Dark Night of the Soul" and he then goes on to interpret and expound on the poem, but he does it slightly differently than he did in the "Dark Night", but overall I would say that if you've read one then you've probably read the other... I would have enjoyed it if he had actually gotten to the part where you leave the dark night and enter into divine union, but alas, he never got to that part... My recommendation is that you buy it if it has a really sweet cover... haha!
