In Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman established himself as a master of teaching through story. Now, in this exciting adventure, he reveals how deep learning can be found in unexpected places. The wisdom he shares will illuminate many lives. (don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements)
Dan's new book is must-read journey of transformation. Few other books so skillfully combine story and substance than this peaceful warrior adventure. (Tony Robbins, New ?York Times #1 best-selling author, entrepreneur & philanthropist)
Dan Millman’s conclusion to his peaceful warrior saga is a remarkable odyssey of life, death and meaning — the fully-realized completion of a unique spiritual adventure. What a privilege to travel this unforgettable journey with him. This epiphanous work will stay with you long after you’ve read it. (Ed Spielman, creator of the landmark, now-classic, ABC “Kung Fu” TV series)
The conclusion to Dan Millman’s life-changing Peaceful Warrior saga was well worth the wait. This riveting quest through many exotic locations reminds readers what it means to follow a spiritual path in the modern world. Millman’s journey includes memorable characters and daunting challenges on the way to wisdom and inner peace. It’s a book for anyone interested in life's bigger picture and deeper currents. (William Bernhardt, best-selling author of Challengers of the Dust)
A brilliant sequel to a timeless classic. Well done. I highly recommend this treasure. (Caroline Myss, author Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts)
Dan's new book, The Hidden School, reminds me of the magic and mystery of the Way of the Peaceful Warrior. This suspenseful, often humorous adventure, shows the way to our own light, our own music, and our own way home. When I experienced Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome in Tahiti back in 1986, the Way of the Peaceful Warrior literally saved my life. Keep on keepin' on Dan. I'll always be there with and for you. Thank-Q brother.
(- Quincy Jones, Grammy award winning musician, producer, actor and humanitarian)
The Hidden School is filled with beautiful lessons that challenges your ideas of reality and pushes you to live a more inspired life.
(-Amy Smart, actress and activist)
In this compelling story, Dan Millman takes us on a quest for the secret of eternal life. He moves easily between worlds, using external action-adventure as a metaphor for an internal spiritual quest, providing both entertainment and self-reflection. The Hidden School brings to mind the adventures of Carlos Casteñada and mysterious quest in The Da Vinci Code. This is a page turner, both entertaining and provocative. If you can only take one book to read on your next vacation, this is that book.
(–Ronald Boyer, award-winning author, poet, and screenwriter)
With a masterful touch, Dan Millman's The Hidden School will transform the way we navigate our journey in the seemingly everyday events of life, inspiring us to discover their hidden magic, all the while igniting the mystical essence within ourselves. (Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation)
Dan Millman has done it again. THE HIDDEN SCHOOL completes the book cycle he began with THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR, bringing the story full circle. This book is the most intriguing of them all, as Millman takes his readers into invisible worlds, cross-oceanic voyages, and encounters with incredible sages. The lessons in this book are both profound and simple -- and many people who read it will never see reality in the same way again. So be forewarned. Read THE HIDDEN SCHOOL at your own risk! (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. co-author PERSONAL MYTHOLOGY)

Like all of Dans books I will reread this a few times. Regardless of my opinions, I do suggest reading this. There are very thought provoking messages in there.
Presently I’m recovering from a broken knee from a skiing accident, and my ordeal reminded me of what Dan went through in that first book. It was with great joy (pun!) that I discovered that Dan had written a third book to finish the series. Surely, all these years later, with the rise of the internet and easy access to the most profound spiritual books ever written, Dan would be able to hold his own and once again deliver a worthy, modern, addition to this space.
Unfortunately this is not the case. This book is a boring, meaningless journey without a good plot or interesting characters and the meager spiritual truths it weakly offers are contextually barren. A daily Zen quote calendar is better than this book. I have no idea why people are giving this book good reviews. It’s simply not a good story... and just because he sprinkles some airy fairy spiritual quotes around doesn’t give it any credibility above the lousy writing.
Dan makes one statement that is true, that Consciousness holds everything and you are that. The self is an illusion. There. I just wrote all the meaning this book has in two sentences. You won’t find any deeper context or understanding in “The Hidden School” than what I have written. Dan doesn’t bother explaining any of it, and in fact does a great disservice to Zen in how much of a shoulder shrug this insight is revealed in the book.
This book, along with the first two, can be considered absolute beginner books. They at best might spark some curiosity, like it did in me all those years ago... but you will have to go elsewhere to find the real answers that go beyond pithy, cliched spiritual quotes Dan pulls from others. This book is painfully shallow, much more so than the first two.
I love you Dan and you changed my life, just like your first book said it would. This book was a major disappointment and lacks purpose, instruction, entertainment or enlightenment.
