I would NOT recommend this book to anyone who has not at least some solid understanding of the Orthodox view of theosis and, more to the point, would not recommend it for anyone who is not Orthodox (especially inquirers). Given the heavy subject matter the book deals with as well as the depth into which Fr. Staniloae dives I would say that it is a text that is more for someone who has spent some years in the Church. That said, it is a wonderful book!
The first one or two parts of the book are quite accessible by lay people. The latter portion requires slow and steady contemplation. A basic understanding of Orthodox theology would be good to have prior to reading. Dee Pennick’s God’s Path to Sanity is a short read that may provide a good primer into the soul and the passions.
I have so many highlights and notes that continued rereading will be beneficial and necessary.
Stick with it, even if there are portions that you do not understand, it is well worth the read.
The kindle version has numerous errors in translation which make it difficult at times to grasp. Go for the print version if you can.
