The author (Dan Millman) relates a personal mystical experience and a meeting with a man who Dan calls Socrates or Soc for short. Dan is in college at the time and is also world champion gymnast athlete and one night when he could not sleep he wound up at a small all-night gas station. This is where he meets a man working the night shift who becomes his philosophical and spiritual mentor.
The unique and original approaches to learning about what is really important in life are the lessons Dan is taught in sometimes subtle and unusual ways. The numerous conversations and feedback between Dan and Socrates makes this 217 page soft cover an interesting read. I had heard about this book some time ago but did not read it until recently. There also was a movie made based upon this book.
This book is organized into three books. Book one covers “the winds of change.” Book two is about “the warrior’s training.” The final book (3) is about the final search and the gate opens. There is also information about the movie being made from the book.
Even though I enjoyed reading this book I have some disagreements with some of the esoteric approaches in this book; nevertheless, I felt it was good enough to give 5 stars.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Zen Poetry Moments: Haiku and Senryu for special occasions).
It has lots of moments that are pop culture and pop psychology but those are overshadowed by the powerful presentation of the concepts and the moments of valuable story-telling.
A good, formidable, worthwhile read, especially if you're the kind of person who likes to play at reflection and 'light' philosophy.
I was recommended this book but was pretty disappointed.
I would definitely not recommend this book.
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
