About the Author
SHEMS FRIEDLANDER has absorbed the mystical traditions of classical Sufism from their Eastern sources in Turkey and the Arab world and translated them into accessible works for the Western reader. A member of the Sufi order of dervishes founded by Jalaluddin Rumi, he offers an insider's in-depth view of Rumi which other contemporary poets who have adapted his work for the West fail to elucidate. He lives in Cairo and is currently completing a TV documentary on Rumi.

The book may be of little interest to someone who is already aware of the life and teachings of Rumi however, for someone who is new to Rumi, curious about Sufism or simply wishes to take a holiday to Turkey and plans to see the 'whirling dervishes' this book will be a useful little travelling companion.
Having said that, the book was excellent, very interesting and fun to read. The book includes possibly 2 of Rumi's poems, and a chapter on the spiritual exercises of the whirling dervishes.
I personally wouldn't buy this book, but its worth searching for it in the library.
