Spiritual life can never be limited or defined.  Therefore, the content of a book about the spiritual life is never able to exhaust the subject that its title indicates.  In particular, this book does not even attempt to enlarge upon all the themes of Orthodox spiritual life or to exhaust even the most important among them.  Its purpose is to constitute an introductory handbook to assist students of theology, and anyone else who is interested, in a first approach to Orthodox spiritual life.
