I like his explanation of the disciplines. My only counter is to his somewhat exclusionary or hierarchical way he delineates between the primary disciplines (reading the Word and prayer) and the disciplines he cites as secondary (i.e. fasting, solitude). The secondary ones can be vehicles that focus you on the primary ones. For example, if you fast it tends to drive you towards prayer and scripture reading. So I wouldn't avoid fasting because I feel I have not mastered study and prayer.
