<SeH'eghmeH> "in order to control oneself".  That can be the name of the
book by itself.  We know of at least one book with a verbal clause for a
title, <jabmeH> "In Order to Serve", which is mentioned in KGT (p. 86).
 There's really no need to indicate that it's a "tome", since that is
presumably self-evident to your (Klingon) audience.

But if you want to indicate that it's a "tome", you can use <paq'a'> "great
book, major book".  Maybe something like <SeH'eghmeH paq'a'> "great book for
controlling oneself" or <Sun paq'a'> "great book of discipline".
