Amazon.com Editorial Review

During his junior year at the University of California, Dan Millman first stumbled upon his mentor (nicknamed Socrates) at an all-night gas station. At the time, Millman hoped to become a world-champion gymnast. "To survive the lessons ahead, you're going to need far more energy than ever before," Socrates warned him that night. "You must cleanse your body of tension, free your mind of stagnant knowledge, and open your heart to the energy of true emotion." From there, the unpredictable Socrates proceeded to teach Millman the "way of the peaceful warrior." At first Socrates shattered every preconceived notion that Millman had about academics, athletics, and achievement. But eventually Millman stopped resisting the lessons, and began to try on a whole new ideology--one that valued being conscious over being smart, and strength in spirit over strength in body. Although the character of the cigarette-smoking Socrates seems like a fictional, modern-day Merlin, Millman asserts that he is based on an actual person. Certain male readers especially appreciate the coming-of-age theme, the haunting love story with the elusive woman Joy, and the challenging of Western beliefs about masculine power and success.

Opinion of TG from Portland, USA

This is a wonderful story, although I will stop short of saying that it changed my life, I would recommend it to anyone. I found the fiction surrounding the real characters entertaining and capable of conveying a message of spiritual growth through perception of yourself and your surroundings. It definitely reminded of how not to let life embitter when an individual is confronted with personal hardship. It has been very helpful when applying simple rules to life - rules that each of us have known at one time or another.
