From the Author
This, my first book, has a special place in my heart -- and in the hearts of my readers. It emerged from an intensive search lasting more than a decade. It blends autobiographical fact with flights of imagination to convey vivid reminders to my readers about life's promise and potential. Pablo Picasso once said that art is a lie that helps us to see the truth. I invite curious readers to visit the Q&A section at peacefulwarrior.com.
Way of the Peaceful Warrior serves as an introduction to the way, detailed in the numerous books that have followed over the years. Each of these books -- including titles like No Ordinary Moments, The Laws of Spirit, and The Four Purposes of Life -- presents another facet of the peaceful warrior's way -- an approach to living that I teach worldwide.
After my first book was finished, I didn't write another one for ten years -- until the intervention and influence of other mentors and life experiences provoked new writings that followed over the years.
From the Back Cover
Way of the Peaceful Warrior has become one of the most beloved spiritual sagas of our time. Shared among friends and families, it is translated into more than twenty languages and has inspired people of all ages. It speaks to the peaceful warrior in each of us. Countless readers have been moved to laughter and tears -- and even to moments of illumination -- as they rediscover life's larger meaning and purpose.

Before I finished it, I was already on Amazon purchasing the next one that way I had it just in time.
I am 100% certain that the Author Dan Millman has first hand experiences with some of the more mystical esoteric subjects!
It is an extremely inspiring novel, and I would liken Dan to the author Paulo Coelho as this book and The Alchemist while different subjects; are still written and inspiring in the same manner.
Dan is now on my list of Favorites, and forever a fan.
So, if you like The Alchemist; purchase this book
There is what you want to happen and then there is what IS happening. Both are important but we don't take note of the latter in favor of the former when, in reality, with awareness of both, they support each other's thrival.
A rich reminder of the value that razor sharp awareness can bring to every facet of life.
This is one of the tools I used to change the way I see the world and my life. Then all that needed to be done is "take the first step." You may just get to know the real you for the first time. It is an easy read and a fun read, so even if you gain nothing from it, at least you get to smile and laugh.
First, about its merits: when reading WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR, keep a highlighter handy and be prepared to use it a lot. It's full of wonderful truths that will help you become a warrior whose "life is not about imagined perfection or victory; ... [but]about love." Many of the truths the book has to offer, I have had to learn through experience. I rather wish I'd read it twenty years ago. It might have saved me a lot of time! It's great to have some of my personal beliefs affirmed, and of course to become a true "warrior", there are things I still have left to accomplish.
As for the literary aspect of the book, I found the writing rather clumsy. Most annoying to me was Millman's habit of trying to set up little "zingers". There is very little craft in this book, and perhaps it would have been more honest of the author to just say what was really on his mind, without the excuse of having a character meet Socrates in a service station.
A very worthwhile book. Read it for the ideas--now that you know the truth about the writing style, as Millman puts it, "when you know the horse is wild, you can deal with it appropriately."
