Its important to learn from authentic guides so this book presents correct teachings by a world renowned authority on Sufism Shaykh Kabbani. Its important to learn how to control the ego and purify your levels of thinking and feeling. Naqshbandi merge psychology and sufi spiritual practice perfectly to help us understand ourselves and our God. This book will help you do these things and unlock higher levels of consciousness.

The full title of this book is "The Sufi Science of Self-Realization: A Guide to the Seventeen Ruinous Traits, the Ten Steps to Discipleship, and the Six Realities of the Heart" (2006). The book lives up to its title in that it guides the reader step-by-step through the 17 negative traits, the 10 positive traits, and the 6 realities. Given the the book is about 230 pages long, that does not leave much printed space for elaboration on all the various steps that are mentioned -- the text is still quite good, but would be even better had the author been able to explain some of the steps in greater detail. Perhaps, the book could have been about twice are long in order to sufficiently cover the vast territory the author brings forth. All that said, the text is written in a very accessible and easily digestible manner. This is a recommended work for anyone seriously interested in Sufism.

Don't expect to get from a book what is needed and only available from a living teacher. Find a teacher, then read the book, do not make the book the teacher.

I have read other Sufi related books and I found this one to not be as inspirational. It just felt that there was too much repetition in the book, almost as if the author was copying paragraphs from previous chapters and putting them into later chapters. This book is not for everyone interested in Sufism. Overall I rated this 3 stars out of 5, I was disappointed with it.
