From the Inside Flap
The Laws of Spirit is, like Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist, a parable or allegory, a teaching tale -- in which the author encounters an woman of great wisdom while on a mountain hike. In a single weekend in the wilderness, this ageless sage takes Dan, and his readers, through experiences and tests in the wilderness that demonstrate the powers of spiritual laws in everyday life, including the laws of balance, choice, process, presence, compassion, faith, action, cycles, surrender, and unity.
As the woman reveals, "These laws belong to all of us. They reside in every heart and in the heart of every religion and spiritual tradition." Here is a book whose covers you may open again and again for inspiration and guidance on life's journey.

If you are not familiar with Millman, he is the author of The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, an all-time best seller which was also made into a very good Nick Nolte movie. Millman is in addition a world-class gymnast-cum-life coach. His work is an inspiration and a practical guide to living a better life. The Laws of Spirit just reinforces his earlier books and clarifies some of his key concepts.
The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that this book is in some ways a re-hash of the concepts in previous ones, rather than a totally new and therefore astonishing work. Nonetheless, it offers great insights and wonderful guidance while also entertaining. When trying to improve, one is always grateful for this kind of clear and engaging help.
The story is based around a man who has recently begun both a physical & spiritual journey, and the sage he meets along the way. This sage teaches him about each of the 12 laws, providing wonderful examples & showing him how to apply each one to every-day life.
I love that each "law" is explained in "down-to-earth" language and that, due to the examples given, it becomes quite easy to see how they can be used to better our lives on a day-to-day basis.
"The Laws of Spirit" is a relatively small book, as it can easily be read in 1 or 2 sittings. However, I would suggest either keeping the book handy so that you can re-read it, or taking some notes so that you can easily be reminded of the many insights given. (I chose to take notes, so it took me a little bit longer to finish the book - but I now have the info. I need to put into practice all that I learned).
Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in spirituality & personal growth. It's an easy, interesting read, that is jam packed with wonderful insights.
