It is a deceptively dense book. Although it could be easily read in a week, the author suggests the reader take a year to read it. This is because each paragraph could be used as meditation material, it is that good. It can be exceptionally comforting and consoling on the one hand, on the other it can make you squirm in your chair as it requires honesty in facing the truths of just how petty and even evil we can sometimes be. Yet through it all, Christ is there, teaching, guiding, giving his life to us as savior.
I think what I like best about the book, however, is the ordinary Trappist realism behind the spirituality. For example, "the control of our sexual urges over time is often simply the natural slowing of this impulse in us as we age rather than some extraordinary spiritual self-conquest." (That's a paraphrase). There are statements like that peppered throughout the book that will make you laugh, and keep you down to earth, smiling and very, very glad to be human, because our God became human for us. I suspect this book will be a source of growth for many long before many of the classics will be.
This is a wonderful book to use in daily devotions that seek to understand and draw closer to our creator God.
