has anyone read this book, by Archimandrite Seraphim Aleksiev?

Wow, I didn't know his works are translated into English :)

The book is very useful. I have read most of his works, in Bulgarian although.

I love that book!  It was the best $5 I've ever spent.

I typically try to read thru it the day before I go to confession each time. I forgot to do it last time. But it is an excellent little gem of a book, very convicting.
