A different path of the Peaceful Warrior

This was my first book from the author and I'm not even sure what drew me to it, but sometimes the universe just works that way and you go with it. Much like The Way Of The Peaceful Warrior, the book tells a story about a man on a quest he doesn't really fully understand. Along the way, he finds a guide who leads, pushes, and forces inner exploration that takes him to a higher place than he imagined. The book is definitely spiritual, but not religious. Despite being about a pilgrimage along the Road to Santiago with some religious references, the story isn't about church or practices of the church. Rather, it's about one man's quest to find his own connection with the divine within and all around.

- Mark "I spend 90+ minutes a day in my car, Audible makes it enjoyable regardless of what's happening in traffic. My taste varies from endurance fitness to economics and from to combat stories and romance novels."
