In this approachable work of tafsir (exegesis of the Qur'an), Khan (Divine Speech) wields his mastery of the Arabic language to teach about Islam on a practical, everyday level. Khan's essays are charming and simple in their prose, and simultaneously deep in substance."-Publishers Weekly

One great perk of having his speeches written out though, is that you have time to investigate and fully appreciate the Arabic. Or rather, this is what should be the best part of the book. However, the transcription jumps back and forth between Arabic script and English transliteration of Arabic, which I found confusing. I am student of Arabic, but jumping back and forth made it hard to understand sometimes which word he was referring to from the Qur'anic passage. This is another area that an editor could have been of some help. Maybe including the Arabic script along with the transliterated English inserted into the transcription. Or even better, maybe having a glossary of terms for each chapter to best understand the point that Khan is trying to make. NAK is known for his commentary of the Qur'an, which dwells mostly on revealing meaning through the grammar and syntax of the Qur'an. So I would have appreciated more of that in this book.
I enjoyed reading this book, because I enjoy listening to Khan's lectures. However, as some one else pointed out, some of these same lectures are available online (you can check the Amazon preview for a Table of Contents). I'm not sure if everyone will appreciate this book. If you are not familiar with NAK or his speaking style, you should probably just check the lectures out online, unless you just really like reading out transcripts of lectures. In that way, maybe this would be a great resource for deaf readers. All and all, I was excited to see a book by Khan, but wish it had more substance, because as it is, it is not a very valuable addition to my library. I don't think I would re-read it.
Read this book and gift it generously to every Muslim you know--- -- may Allah reward the author abundantly.
P.s. For the folks who are giving any less than 5 stars to this book--- please reconsider your evaluation. This is not Nouman Ali Khans literary adventures--- this is a very knowledgeable gentlemen eager to get out extremely valuable lessons to the Ummah. It being a repetition of "lectures" doesn't make the lessons in it any less valuable. Come on people--- you know better than this!
