Publisher's Summary

This audio edition of the international best seller Way of the Peaceful Warrior is based on the story of Dan Millman, a world-class gymnast who has it all, but is troubled by a vague sense of dissatisfaction with his everyday life. He meets an eccentric old mentor named Socrates, who sets him on a spiritual odyssey that will ultimately deliver or destroy him. Along the way Dan encounters realms of light and darkness, of romance and magic, as he learns what it means to live as a peaceful warrior.
Way of the Peaceful Warrior is a rare story with the power to transform lives. It conveys piercing truths with drama, heart, and humor and speaks directly to the universal quest for fulfillment and happiness, for finding our place in the world. It is a story for all times that can inspire joy, expand perspectives, and remind us of the deeper truth we already know, that real freedom lies within us right now.

Words to live by

I've listened to this book five times now. Each time a little bit more of Socrates' wisdom sticks. It's a great book with plenty of lessons to be learnt and practiced in the real world. It's only around six hours long so not a huge investment in time, but very worth wile. The Millman tells the story well, there's nothing there to dislike. I liked his cant and rhythm of his narration. The story is a semi-autobiographical one. Like Dan I wanted to know who is this Socrates man, what’s his story, how did he know these things. These mysteries are hanging there throughout and some of them are answered. We're taken on a journey through Dan's life and how Socrates' lessons change the way Dan thinks and behaves.

Awesome book

This book was amazing, I read and listened. It helped aid my trips to become shorter, and it also allowed me to understand life in a different perspective. I highly recommend this book. It was well narrated, however I can only fault the fact some parts of the audible and the book differed
