A wonderful, profound, inspiring book; a book that you should certainly buy, but not this edition of it due to the heavy abridgement.
The Inner Life is part of The Imitation of Christ: search for "Imitation of Christ" in the search box above and choose a full edition. I have the Penguin Classics edition, which is excellent, but others Oxford etc. are available.
I'd suggest avoiding the Dover edition or any older editions as they will probably an old fashioned, unpleasent to read, translations.
