From Publishers Weekly

In his landmark 1980 novel, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Millman blended fact and fiction to tell the story of a young man whose life is transformed by his encounter with a mysterious sage named Socrates. In this intriguing follow-up, Socrates takes center stage. It's late 19th-century Russia, and young Sergei Ivanov has been drafted into training to become one of the czar's elite guards. When Sergei saves the life of a brutal fellow student, Dmitri Zakolyev, during a difficult training exercise, he knows this act has actually made him an enemy... Millman's narration clips along, and he does a fine job with period flourishes. But the extended training chapters suffer from clichés of character and narrative, and dampen the suspense. A shocking surprise about the fate of Sergei's unborn child and a ham-fisted meeting between Sergei and his rival strain credibility, but Millman's fluid storytelling makes this an easy read. Agent, Candice Fuhrman. (Apr.)

From Booklist

Millman's autobiographical Way of the Peaceful Warrior (1980) and 94-year-old gas-pump-jockey Socrates, the young Millman's guru in it, are fixtures in the canon of New Age self-actualization literature, thanks to 2.5 million copies sold. This prequel provides an adventurous backstory for Socrates. It begins in czarist Russia with orphaned Sergei fleeing the Nevskiy military academy. He survives in the mountainous wilderness by fashioning a lean-to against the face of a cave near a waterfall on a stream that hosts salmon, trout, and a beaver dam, and by hunting and drying food for the winter. By his second year as a mountain man (1890), he has turned 18 and become part of the wild, high country. A close call with a hungry bear in 1891 drives him to St. Petersburg, where he hopes to verify his grandfather's promise of buried treasure and use it to escape to America. Millman's smoothly written text recounts a spiritual journey while it tells a creditable survival--adventure-coming-of-age story. Way-farers will want to join the journey. Whitney Scott

The Journeys of Socrates

One of the most important and most powerful books I ever read. I highly recommend to first read the "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" and maybe even "The secret Journey of the Peaceful Warrior" by Dan Millman. These are the first books Dan Millman wrote, a fascinating story about how he met his mentor 'Socrates'. That was at a time when he was a world championship gymnast in the late 60's. Socrates teaches him an approach to living he calls the "way of the peaceful warrior".

In this first book you will find not information about his mentor Socrates, but Socrates had written a diary about his own life, born in Russia in the late 19th century. This book is full of surprises, until the very last pages. Dan Millman is a fascinating story teller, becoming better and better with every book. All his books are a great inspiration - as well as the life of his mentor Socrates!

By the way, Nick Nolte is 'Socrates' in the movie "The Peaceful Warrior". An interpretation Dan Millman obviously very much appreciated.

HASH(0xa58bfd98) von 5 Sternen Exciting Journey 21. März 2006
Von Jason Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is Dan Millman's third in the Peaceful Warrior Saga. I didn't know quite what to expect but had heard this book changed course from his previous writings. This is true because this book is more of a narrative as opposed to the other Peaceful books which tend to be a little more instructional.

The Journeys of Socrates is about the early life of Millman's guru, Socrates. It starts off with recounting his early boyhood in a Russian military school. Orphaned and distraught at having to stay in the school the young Socrates escapes. He starts to build an enjoyable life for himself as a young man with a wife only to meet tragedy. A key nemesis from his old military school days shows up and contributes to a horrific tragedy of unimaginable proportions. Socrates can think of nothing else but revenge. He spends his days and years after this plotting for ways to get back at the evil he has experienced.

As the book progresses Socrates meets many new teachers. These teachers are Masters of certain disciplines (like the martial arts) but more importantly they are Masters of life in general. After years of hard work these wise teachers teach Socrates how to live, breathe, forgive and find happiness. He comes to discover that the only way he can truly be free is by releasing this awful burden of hate he carries around day after day. It's a very wise but painful lesson. For obvious reasons I am not divulging everything but suffice it to say you'll be surprised, horrified, entertained, and inspired by the end of the book.

Concerning the book, I felt the story was very good but the writing seemed a little rough around the edges. I got the impression that Millman, despite having written several other books, is still learning his craft as a narrative type storyteller. It seemed in parts he could have developed the plot more thoroughly and provided more realistic detail for certain key players. Despite these minor flaws I still enjoyed the book tremendously for the insight, wisdom, and entertaining nature of it all. There is nothing better than being able to read an exciting story and also learn how to live in a better way at the same time.

Anyone who enjoys personal transformation, inspiring stories, and fascinating characters will really treasure this read. I only hope that in the future Dan continues to write, teach, and give us more timeless advice from the Warrior/Buddha Socrates.

HASH(0xa58caa14) von 5 Sternen A Must-Read for Millman Fans 30. April 2005
Von Avalon Daughter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you were like me you were incredibly curious about the mysterious Socrates. Who was he? Where did he come from? Was he a real person?

This book is all about his life in Russia and how he came to be. It also explains how he came into his "peaceful" power, his family background and how he came to the United States. I'm not going to go into too much detail but I will say it's a definite must-read as a companion to "Way of the Peaceful Warrior."

It can be a bit slow at times and unless you're familiar with Russian names it can also take a bit of thinking to keep track of characters. Some of them have other names they use. Socrates has three at some points and for me, it took a little more careful reading. Doesn't make it less interesting, though.

However, there are three big shockers that will keep you glued to the book. Especially the ending which had me gasp twice, keep reading and blown away by what else Millman discovered. You'll never guess what Dan discovered about Socrates at the end but be amazed when you do; It makes WotPW much, much more personal for Dan.

Definite must-read for fans of the first book -- newcomers, should most definitely read "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" first. That way it would make much more sense.

HASH(0xa58c6918) von 5 Sternen Who knew? 10. Oktober 2005
Von MARK DIMASSIMO - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I loved "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" when I first read it at least twenty years ago. And I've continuted to love it as I've re-read it periodically over the years. In "Warrior," Dan Millman created a myth that spoke to the young man I was on many levels -- the usefulness of getting lost and depressed, the possibility of finding a mentor, the magic of training and rigorous discipline, the totality of the present moment, the acceptance of the death of the ego, and the transcendence of life beyond death -- all in a fast-moving, involving story. It's a hard act to follow. This is by far the best of Millman's subsequent novels. It is a much more mature book from a more mature writer for a more mature reader. While the author is still concerned with many of the same themes, he brings in many others with greater depth and seriousness -- devasating loss, ethnic violence, evil, vengence and much more. Who knew that old trickster Socrates came from and through such a dark place? A must read.

HASH(0xa58d3e10) von 5 Sternen Great Story, but maybe not in continuity with the rest. 28. August 2006
Von matt - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Had I not been interested in Russian martial arts, Russian Orthodoxy and the era of the story, this book would have been a two star. I can say that it is well-written, and that it does flow easy and can be read in a day (even one long sitting). It's a little predictable, but it does have its positives. The role of the monk-warrior is of interest to me and Millman's description was believable and engaging. In particular I found the tie-in of Russian fighting arts with their unique styles and training methods to be a great touch.

Even so, I know other readers wonder where this new history of Socrates came from, which is an understandable thought. What I think happened, and this is where his critics have a point (although I love the direction Millman's heading), is that he discovered Vladimir Vasiliev's fighting system and philosophy, which is in part rooted in Russian Orthodox Christianity, and he then decided to write the history of Socrates to fit into this mold. It is my favorite part of the plot, but it may seen disconnnected from the New Agers that so love his other works. I don't see them as mutually exclusive on the whole, but I can see how it could be odd.

On the whole, a quick read that adds depth to Socrates and may introduce you to some new ideas and history.

HASH(0xa58d3d98) von 5 Sternen A great prequel that explains Millman's inspirations. 21. Juli 2005
Von Nikolai Curtis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What a fantastic book. I knew it would be good, but I didn't know it would be this good. I read Way of the Peaceful Warrior when I was a freshman in college during some tough times. Just like they did with me, I passed that book to a friend who seemed to be ready for a change in his life. Millman is a master at explaining how we can change our daily lives in an entertaining yet not ridiculous manner. So many books that are considered "metaphysical" just lay out the answers in front of you and make you believe that these are the answers, Millman writes it in a manner where you have to decide what best works for you. The book is a further discovery in how a person deals with their most powerful demons and ends up coming out on top. The last few pages were the greatest eye opener into Millman's soul and his journey through life. Definitely the best one of all of the books he has written.
