This simple and profound little guide provides wise advice on how to create a more meaningful life 3. April 2011
Von Alain B. Burrese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There is an old saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." In the case of Dan Millman's newest book, "The Four Purposes of Life: Finding Meaning and Direction in a Changing World" it is more like, when the student is ready, the lesson will appear. I say this because I have been a fan of Millman's books and teachings since the 1980s when I read "Way of the Peaceful Warrior." I've studied his teachings, and they have influenced my own.

I've also known that this book was coming out in 2011 for quite some time, and looked forward to adding it to my library. What I didn't know was this book was for anyone seeking deeper insight into themselves and their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a challenge or change, when "business as usual" no longer applies. Just this week I embarked upon a new journey where I will face unique challenges as I accepted a position as an Executive Director of a not for profit organization that fulfills two (satisfying work and providing a useful service) of the three needs Millman discusses in the chapter on finding your career and calling. One of my challenges is to lead the organization to a place where the third need (financial income or good money) will be realized.

"The Four Purposes of Life" is a small hardcover book that contains a simple, yet profound message. Simple in that is it easy to read, and that Millman has the ability to describe complex ideas in language that make the ideas easier to grasp and implement into one's life. Profound in the fact that contemplation on the ideas presented in this short guide can have an enormous impact on one's life.

The four areas, or purposes, covered include learning life's lessons, finding your career and calling, discovering your life path, and attending to this arising moment. Each of these chapters provides insight, guidance, and stimulus to think about your own path and where you will go from here. The third purpose, discovering your life path, is a short course on the Life Purpose System that Millman detailed in his book "The Life You Were Born to Live." This system is based on your birth number, and there is an appendix to assist you with determining yours, or you can go to Millman's website to find your number. The fourth purpose, attending to this arising moment, is something Millman has written about before as well, but this chapter really hit home as I was reading it this morning. It is good to be reminded that there are no ordinary moments, and I just may reread Millman's book of that title for some deeper contemplation on this topic.

Each of us has a different path to follow, and Millman has that rare ability to offer practical guidance and insights regardless of one's chosen path. This simple and profound little guide provides wise advice on how to create a more meaningful life. The wisdom in these pages will not only help you find the passion to improve your life, but provides the inspiration to do it now.

Reviewed by Alain Burrese, J.D., a regular column on negotiation for The Montana Lawyer.

The Best Book Yet!!! 30. März 2011
Von David L. Cairns - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
While Dan Millman has written four(4)inspirational novels, eight(8) guidebooks, an inspirational book and two(2) children's books this book is his best, most complete book to date. It takes the best from each of the 8 guidebooks and distills them to the essence of the message. This is a book that I will give to friends and student's much as I have given away "Way of the Peaceful Warrior". It is truly a book that enables you to "find meaning and direction in a changing world".

Dan's most concise teachings in one book 2. April 2011
Von Martin Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been a dedicated follower of Dan's teachings for the past ten + years, and for good reasons: they exude excellence, clarity and compassion in a way rarely found in this world. So I naturally have high standards when it comes to Dan's work, and I'm pleased to say that this book exceeded even these expectations.

In this book in particular, I sense a spiritual maturity and clarity that can probably only come from a long life well lived; I can't quite put my finger on why I have this particular impression: it could be the style, the 'tightness' of the prose (every word in The Four Purposes seems to have a purpose in itself as well!) or simply the energy resonance I sense between the lines. Either way, it's a gem of a book. It also distills most of Dan's teachings into a concise format -- all these years, all the different directions the author explored, have been brought together into a single framework, and that's what I love about this book as well.

I sense this book in particular can be a great introductory book for newcomers to Dan's work as well. Highly recommend it.

Basic 1. Juni 2011
Von Nicolette - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For most of this book I found myself just agreeing and disagreeing with what was being said. There was about one page three quarters through the book where I acutually gained some insight that struck a cord. It's a very simple read.

Dan Millman Scores with The Four Purposes of Life 30. März 2011
Von TOm Callos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dan doesn't waste words or your time in this book. He makes his point as clear as the ring of the Zen master's bell. This is an accomplished writer with something to say that is worth listening to --and reflecting upon. Buy a copy, read it twice, and pass it on. Great work Dan Millman!
