Summary

In 19th century Tsarist Russia an orphaned child born of Jewish and Cossack blood grows up in a land of wealthy aristocrats, struggling peasants, and growing discontent. Sent to an elite military academy at the tender age of four, Sergei Ivanov (Socrates) comes of age training to protect a way of life he doesn't understand. When a sudden death forces Sergei to flee, he escapes into the wilderness. From the heights of love to the depths of despair, from the threat of a mortal enemy to the search for a child he has never met, Sergei Ivanov's odyssey unlocks hidden wisdom at the heart of life. He could never have imagined that from the moment of his birth he was destined to become the peaceful warrior who would change the lives of millions worldwide. The odyssey that unfolds is not about the revolutions of history, but about the revolution in one man's heart. A stirring story emerges as Sergei encounters mentors and masters who reveal secrets about the arts of war and, ultimately, the path to peace.

Fills in some blanks

Very enjoyable story, easy to listen to. No great spiritual insights as such, but fills in some of the blanks from the Peaceful Warrior book very nicely.

Life Changing

I read "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" prior to "The Rise of Socrates". These books radiate deep into my soul as if The Universe & God meant for me to hear their messages exactly at this moment in my life. They have woken up to life on mpre levels than I can begin to describe. The philosophies & inspirations drive every principle that I put into my company, my life's work, & my time I have here on this beautiful world. Thank you!
