Review quote

"If Rumi is the most-read poet in America today, ColemanBarks is in good part responsible. His ear for the truly divinemadness in Rumi's poetry is truly remarkable." -- Huston Smith, author of "The World's Religions""In this.delightful treasury, Barks sparklingly demonstratesonce again why his free-form interpretations of [Rumi's] poetryhave been a major impetus for the current Rumi vogue."-- "Publishers Weekly""Perhaps the world's greatest spiritual poet--the gold of Rumipours down through Coleman's words. The words leap off thepage and dance!" -- Jack Kornfield, author of "A Path with Heart"""The Essential Rumi" is a rare and precious book that will stir the hearts of Rumi devotees and win many new converts."-- "Body Mind Spirit"
