Be warned that this is not pop psychology. "The Philokalia" is the reading equivalent to proper meditation, a subject that is covered in the texts. I am glad to have discovered these volumes as they have been a source of great help to me and have seen me through some tough times.
Needless to say I can't recommend these books highly enough.
I've read books and heard sermons by men like Leonard Ravenhill, David Wilkerson, Paul Washer, Paris Reidhead and so on, yet their teaching does not compare to the wealth of insight that this first volume provides. I can only wait in anticipation for the next 3 volumes and pray that the translators hurry up and finish the last volume!
One word of warning though. If you are not a monk, then some of the advice cannot be taken on board. Some of it is extremely severe in terms of bodily denial, and in endurance and fastings and vigils. But even in this there are principals which can be taken on board and put into practice even by the busy husband and father.
A text I would recommend that is more specifically geared toward Prayer is, but is also based on the Philokalia (though contains many texts not found in the original series, and therefore of merit in it's own right and not simply a compilation of texts from the original series.) The Art of Prayer: An Orthodox Anthology.
I found some of the text to be for the monk and not so much for the layperson
Having said a vast number of the text can be applied to everyday life
This book book helps me understand that TIME is only relevant to matters of the material world
TO THE WORLD UNSEEN
THIS BOOK IS THE PERFECT ROADMAP
