I present motivational programs in the Detroit area schools. This book is excellent in showing that the positive actions displayed by Danny make him shine like a winner. Nothing wimpy about him! This book will become part of my CREATING CHAMPIONS program to have children see that really strong individuals don't need to use their fists to be in control of their lives! Bravo to all involved in the creation of this book. More books like this in schools could help curb some of the growing violence we're seeing.

I liked how the girl stood up to that bully... I could do that, say "Hey, why are you taking his lunch?!? Get your own lunch!" I liked the part about "friendship"... there was a lot in this book about "friendship". I loved it. It's my favorite book ever! - Rachel P, age 10

I love this book. I can read it a thousand times to/with my daughter. It's filled with heart, and simple wisdom. This book is great for everyone from athiest, or secular parents to deeply religious parents of all faiths...and of course to all of the rest of us that lie somewhere in the beautiful middle.

This book is just great. You will not regret buying this book for your son, daughter, niece, nephew, granddaughter, or grandson. I love the pictures, the flow, the simplicity, the message, and well I just love this book...I just wish that Millman wrote more children's books, and perhaps one with a girl protagonist...perhaps Daniela Miller, or something like that.

But if you are thinking about buying this book then do it. I am glad that I did. I was concerned at first about whether I would agree with the spirituality of the book, but low and behold there is nothing in this book to disagree with. It's all heart.

Thanks Dan..now get to work on another one with a girl protagonist.

After reading Dan Millman's other work, I was excited to see there were children's books available. I have shared this book with my students, as well as teachers and it is a hit with everyone. It reinforced valuable lessons that teachers try to teach in the classroom. I have used this book with kids up to 8th grade.

This is a book that I have used over and over again to educate children in the way of peace. It was a book that I had gotten for my son when it first came out and have been sharing it ever since. It is such a connection with children and a way to deal with conflict and bullies.

Format: Hardcover
I just read this book last night with my son (age 9)and wanted to send it as gift to his friends as gifts (for those big boys and their family)
My son picked this book (and another one by the same author / illustrator) "Quest for the crystal Castle")at a special store in Vermont (where I was trying orgnic cotton clothings). He seemed very engrossed for a long time, and I bought both recognizing the words"peaceful worrier" (had been mentioned a few times this summer).
Last month, I myself become a fan of Dan Millman's "Sacred JOurney of a peaceful worrior". It was definitely on my list of "books that changes life". So, I was glad to read these two children version of "peaceful worrior " book with my son last night. I found it a wonderfully written children book with insight and enlightment that my son really loved. He is an avid reader and has been reading lots of great novels, yet Dan's books still inspire him to a very deep level. We both appreciate the books greatly and start thinking about giving these books as gift to his playgroup friends since babyhood.

Dan has created a series of stories with so many lessons, his books can be used lifelong. I share this book with my young athletes to help them prepare their emotions, minds, spirits & bodies for competitive sports & life ahead in "the real world." I highly recommend it to anyone active in helping to shape young people.

Admire this story. I am a peacekeeper. Have sent one copy to young friend and am keeping other to share at peace workshops.
Parents of young, even teenage children are looking for ways to show their child how to express more empathy. This book is a gentle reminder that compassion and empathy always are valuable life skills and can be learned from caring adults as they practice these qualities. These books were ordered from Amazon.com.

More About the Author

Most people who've read Way of the Peaceful Warrior (or seen the movie) already know a few aspects of my life. And you may have seen my summary bio at my website, as follows:

"Dan Millman, a former world champion athlete, coach, martial arts instructor, and college professor, is author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior (adapted to film in 2006), and numerous other books read by millions of people in 29 languages. Dan teaches worldwide and has influenced people from all walks of life, including leaders in the fields of health, psychology, education, business, politics, sports, entertainment and the arts. Dan and his wife, Joy, live in Northern California. His most recent book is The Four Purposes of Life.

Dan's website - peacefulwarrior.com -- features a link to the "Life Purpose Calculator,"and to my online courses and other resources."

Now here are some personal notes:

In my youth I focused on self-improvement, taking memory courses, speed reading; practicing martial arts and gymnastics. Then one day I realized that no matter how much I improved myself, only one person benefited -- but if I could influence other people in a positive way, that made my life more meaningful and exciting.

I began teaching gymnastics, and elements from the martial arts -- that soon shifted into the larger arena of personal growth. I began to write and to speak more widely, especially after the publication of my first book.

I've been lucky, maybe blessed, to have the chance to touch many lives around the world.

Joy and I have been married for 37 years and we grow closer each day, it seems, as we gain perspective and cultivate a sense of humor (about ourselves and one another). I'm a proud father of three grown daughters and two grandsons so far.

I believe you'd find me a good (but not perfect) example of what I teach. I continue to practice, to learn, to serve as well as I can. I do my best to keep my head in the clouds but feet on the ground.

For more info about my books and seminars, please visit www.peacefulwarrior.com, sign up for my eList, follow me on Facebook or Twitter, or just search for peaceful warrior.
