For many years, I have been a devoted reader of Dan Millman's Peaceful Warrior books. I have enjoyed traveling with him as he searched for his own inner truth. It was an enthralling journey but a vicarious one.
I wanted more. I wanted to know how I could implement the ways of the peaceful warrior in my own life, and Millman's new endeavor, No Ordinary Moments: a Peaceful Warrior's Guide to Daily Life answers all my secret question and achieves even more. Millman speaks eloquently about his reasons for the title. I've learned that the quality of each moment depends not on what we get from it, but what we bring to it. I treat no moment as ordinary no matter how mundane or routine it appears.
No Ordinary Moments is a carefully designed travelogue that puts you in the drivers seat. In plain, readable, life-affirming language, Millman offers a step-by-step guide to the peaceful warriors approach to living. It is a simple premise: by balancing your body, liberating your mind and accepting your emotions, you can acquire the tools you need to transform your life. As we apply these tools we open our selves to higher levels of energy and awareness and a closer contact with our higher self, Millman writes.
Throughout the book, Millman effectively intertwines quotes and exercises that inspire you to change intention into action, challenges into strengths, and life experiences into wisdom. In the final analysis, Millman has designed a map that is easy to follow. The road to wholeness is a mere 296 pages and well worth traveling, again and again. -- Whole Life Times, August 1992
