At this point, I have read, and re-read this book enough times to know most of it by heart - not just the main story line which is pretty simple, but the lessons contained within the story that are really what the book is all about.
I initially made the mistake of trying to figure out which parts of the story were claimed to have actually happened vs which parts were just there to illustrate a point. Eventually I came to the conclusion that it really doesn't matter how much or little was fact - The basic point of the book is to guide the reader to a philosophy that is aligned to the world around them instead of living one that is opposed to natural order. Without challenging religious beliefs, the book can lead you to look at how you live, how you interact with others, and to think carefully about all aspects of your life - from breathing to eating, to exercise, to how you look at the world every minute of the day
Read it, think about it, then read it again. I don't normally take the time to write reviews of the hundreds of audiobooks I have read, but I feel very strongly about this one

Just finished listening to this audiobook. It was wonderful... so realistic despite having elements of fiction. It is incredibly fun and entertaining to read, even if read just as a novel. Reflecting on the book lessons, I realized that many of its revelations are valid even in the world we live in. Many of my questions about life got answered in this book, and it brought me closer to awakening. Enjoy!!!

This book was amazing, I read and listened. It helped aid my trips to become shorter, and it also allowed me to understand life in a different perspective. I highly recommend this book. It was well narrated, however I can only fault the fact some parts of the audible and the book differed
Words can't describe, it can only be felt. Thank you Dan Millman or should I say me?
A joyful read (listen) with important lessons for all of us, one of those lessons/teachings: be happy for no particular reason
Listening to this is an excellent way to gain further awareness. The story, a continuous metaphor draws one into the void. If you are interested in Buddhism, meditation, Alan Watts, Zen or anything the like, this is a fine addition to any works you already have.
