Publisher's Summary

This audio edition of the international best seller Way of the Peaceful Warrior is based on the story of Dan Millman, a world-class gymnast who has it all, but is troubled by a vague sense of dissatisfaction with his everyday life. He meets an eccentric old mentor named Socrates, who sets him on a spiritual odyssey that will ultimately deliver or destroy him. Along the way Dan encounters realms of light and darkness, of romance and magic, as he learns what it means to live as a peaceful warrior.
Way of the Peaceful Warrior is a rare story with the power to transform lives. It conveys piercing truths with drama, heart, and humor and speaks directly to the universal quest for fulfillment and happiness, for finding our place in the world. It is a story for all times that can inspire joy, expand perspectives, and remind us of the deeper truth we already know, that real freedom lies within us right now.

My Favorite Audiobook

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

Very realistic and fun

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!!!

Awesome book

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

A bendy story of truth and wisdom

A joyful read (listen) with important lessons for all of us, one of those lessons/teachings: be happy for no particular reason

Much ado about nothing

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.
