This book is truly inspiring, mind-opening and will change the way you look at life forever. It shows you the great possibilities that are in store for every human being, most of which are untapped resources. In this respect I find this book extremely powerful and helpful.
There is one thing, however, that I find to be disturbing. The story is based on fiction as well as fantasy. This fact wouldn't be bad by itself, however, the reader gets the impression that this book is a sincere autobiography - which it is not. Thus, while appreciating the fantastic story, we should not take the story itself for real. We may, however, learn from the lessons it contains.

This is a reasonable fairy tale which can help to pass the time while on the train. However it is very simplistic and not at all inspiring since it's nothing you haven't heard a million times before. The 'insight' into life is given through a mystical, supernatural old hippie called socrates - this makes the story far too abstract and cannot be applied to real life. Dan Millman has made a lot of money out of some very gullible people. If you want to know about the meaning of life etc then go to the experts and read the views of a real philosopher. Hey..what about Socrates. Or else, try 'Sophie's World' by Josteein Gaardner, which is a far more insightful and intelligent read.

This is a guide-book in one of all ways to live your life and feel good about it. After I read it, it didn't take long before I started to enjoy every moment in life in a way I hadn't before. I didn't at once realize that it was my way of seing things that made me feel better. I thougt it was my new job or my wonderful girlfriend or our new house we'd just moved into...but it wasn't! Later it hit me that these kind of changings wasn't new to me. I'd been through bigger and more powerful things before without feeling any better. It was my way of SEING my life as an "All Time Happening" with no moment like the moment before. Sometimes I feel afraid of what is going to happen if I lose my way of "seing", my "strength", my way to guide myself through hard moments in my daily life, but for each time I get this worried it takes less time to get my personal "strength" back. If anyone would have told me 10 years ago that I, with all my heart and with love all around, should be leading projects and managing complex computer-networks I hadn't believed them...but my way of taking care of "The everyday enlightments" ...I don't know what to say...it really works, thats all! Sometimes I'd like to send my thanks to Soc, Mama Chia and Dan(the character) but I know that it is not important. What's important is to share this wonderful way of seeing to others, so they can start to live their life in their own way. I mean, this is not a school of how to live. It's a school of: HOW TO FIND YOUR OWN WAY OF TAKING CARE OF EVERY MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE, EVERYDAY! There isn't any "The only way". There's a thousand of ways and you can choose any of them, as long as you choose it and live it with your heart. I love you all, and that's for sure...

The subtitle of this magnificent book is "A Book That Changes Lives". Believe it! Dan Millman, a gymnastics student at the University of California, Berkeley, finds himself at a crucial point in his life, poised on the verge of manhood, and at the jumping off point of his own success. But somehow his life feels flat and empty. Without real meaning. That's when he meets Socrates at a gas station one day. The meeting is seemingly random, and Dan thinks that Socrates might not be playing with all of his marbles in the bag. He soon learns differently. "When you are ready, a teacher will be presented to you." This is one of the first lessons that Dan learns from Socrates, and only one of many. His initial impression of Socrates is changed forever when he realizes that Socrates is the answer to all of the questions in Dans life...or rather, Dan finds out that he had all of the answers all along, just like Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz". I owned a total of 14 copies of this book since it was published, and found that I couldn't hold on to even one of them. They were all given to friends who I knew would benefit from the parables and life lessons that Dan learns. I met Dan Millman a few years later, and found that he wholeheartedly believes every word in that book, and that first book was the impetus for all of the following "help" books that he later wrote. Don't pass up a chance to read this...it just might change your life!

In this life, some of us read many books and some of us read very few. And yet, even those with the most expansive reading lists rarely come upon a book that truly changes their lives. For me, at least, this book was one such gem among the millions. I sat down one Saturday afternoon, intending to read only the first chapter. I put the book down about four hours later in a state of wonder and awe, alive with the confidence that I could positively alter my life. What I found was that this book solidified a lot of what I had been thinking about for several years. After reading this, I felt like everything made perfect sense. I felt like I could gain the strength to meet the world on the level that I wanted to. And I still do. This book was an inspiration for me to begin to change my life in wonderful ways. Several months later, and after having read another of Mr. Millman's books, "No Ordinary Moments," I have begun to bring myself out of my self-destructive habits. I have stopped biting my fingernails; I am no longer addicted to Coca-Cola or related products; I am more in touch with and more capable of expressing my emotions. Most important of all, however, is this: for the first time since about eight years ago, I am beginning to have a positive self-image. This may not sound like anything particularly wonderful, but this book and its author have the power to change lives, and the fact remains: my life IS changing. Regardless of who you are, I recommend reading this book. Even if it doesn't bring your world into perspective or make you effect change in your life, it will at least give you another interesting view of the world, one with which it is well worth your while to be familiar. Even if it doesn't change your outlook on life, it is a wonderful and uplifting story. For anyone on any spiritual journey, or anyone that wishes to realize the potential of their life, this is a worthwhile read. I cannot think of a book that I would recommend more highly

This novel created a new image of life for me. It has got me looking at life through a different perspective. I rate this novel a five because Dan went through similar situations that I had gone through, and has gotten me thinking differently about the rough road ahead of me. He coped with the stress exceptionally well and he was also able to keep a positive mentality. Some of his experiences are very similar to mine so it was farely easy to relate to his thoughts. For example, he's an athlete going through college with very overwhelming struggles. He struggles and fights through rough experiences and still reaches graduation. He also hurts his leg in a brutal motorcycle accident which prevented him to compete in gymnastic competitions. I also had injured my leg playing a sport, and it's also preventing me from being active in my sports. He also is a unique individual that is eagared to suceed. He helps his team win a National Championship and also he finally becomes the warrior that he had been anticipating for quite a while. I admired his courageous heart and accomplishments that he achieved through the tough road to recovery. He also has a friend named, Socrates, that advised him how to cope with difficult situations in life, and how not to get discouraged. He helped Dan and I find our inner peace that's needed to pursue our goals in life. He showed us the path of becoming a "Peaceful Warrior."

I read this book a few years ago, during a troublesome time in my life, in which I was struggling for spirtual meaning to a life seemingly devoid of anything higher than chance and randomness. I approached the book with mixed emotions, hoping to find something worthwhile and poignant, but at the same time skeptical of its "New Age" undertones. I was completely, totally, pleasantly surprised. Instead of rambling on for pages with pseudoscience I found a refreshingly upbeat and spiritual worldview that did not try to dethrone modern empirical thought. It did not speak of some ambiguous, omnipresent yet hidden God or Father or Babysitter, nor did it appeal exclusively to humanity's desire for something loftier than human existence. In fact, the only thing it really seemed to say, though the book expressed this in a wonderfully laid out parable, is that nothing is so real or so important as to last forever. "Lighten up," is basically the moral of this story. And when compared to current popular works of philosophy/fiction such as the abhorrent Celestine Prophecy, which are rife with New Age psychobable and faulty logic, The Way of the Peaceful Warior is a pleasant change of pace. As an added bonus, the story, while a bit choppy at times, is actually quite good as fiction goes.

I bought this book after hearing Dan Millman on a local radio program--he sounded caring and interesting, so I gave it a shot. However, I didn't find much inspiration in "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior." Dan's whole journey of self-discovery seemed incredibly selfish and isolating, almost the essence of a male model of success (not a model that all males would agree with, but a model based on stereotypically male values and power). I wonder if others have noticed this--if women in particular have felt alienated by the path he took and message he puts forth. Dan's first wife and daughter sure seemed to get pushed aside, and his union with Joy read like pure fantasy. I know they are really married, and I wish them all the happiness in the world, but to me Dan's story read like a cautionary tale to make sure people don't make life-long commitments until they have a better idea of their own identities. To those readers who already love this book, I don't me! an to diminish its value for you. But to those who haven't picked it up yet, know that not everyone loved it!

This is great book for those of us who have failed to truly open our eyes and take notice of the spiritual possibilities that may exist outside our everyday perceptions of the world around us.
Dan Millman's story used to deliver these ideas is somewhat fantastic and even depressing at times, as we find the main character faced with huge obstacles that take a lifetime to overcome. If the reader allows him or herself to let go of "Dan's" personal struggles with his journey and realize that the massages being delivered are universal in their goal yet each individual's approach will and should vary drastically, this book offers an exceptional starting point in spiritual discovery and growth. We should also remimber that most if not all true mentors come from within and we shouldn't count on finding the mythical gas station guru to kick us in the pants an point us in the right direction.
Despite any of my above criticism, I applaud this book, has it has been instrumental in assisting me in taking the next step in my own personal growth.
