Its author, Idries Shah, is regarded as the most influential modern exponent of Sufi ideas. His many books on the subject seek to make some of the Eastern world's greatest teachings accessible to a Western audience. In this book, [he] begins with the outward aspects of the teaching most likely to puzzle the student coming fresh to Sufi thought.
