The Inner Journey Home - sufi book

My husband was reading a book called The Inner Journey Home: Soul's Realization of the Unity of Reality, by A.H. Almaas, a Kuwaiti Sufi (modern). I took a browse through it this morning, and though I find it a bit intellectual/abstract for my tastes, the guy knows what he is talking about in terms of both awakening and post-awakening development (what he calls ascent and descent). He's very good. He includes a lot of background on concepts like the soul, the self, God, Being, and so on, particularly drawing on western philosophy.
