Publisher's Summary

In 19th century Tsarist Russia an orphaned child born of Jewish and Cossack blood grows up in a land of wealthy aristocrats, struggling peasants, and growing discontent. Sent to an elite military academy at the tender age of four, Sergei Ivanov (Socrates) comes of age training to protect a way of life he doesn't understand. When a sudden death forces Sergei to flee, he escapes into the wilderness.

From the heights of love to the depths of despair, from the threat of a mortal enemy to the search for a child he has never met, Sergei Ivanov's odyssey unlocks hidden wisdom at the heart of life. He could never have imagined that from the moment of his birth he was destined to become the peaceful warrior who would change the lives of millions worldwide. The odyssey that unfolds is not about the revolutions of history, but about the revolution in one man's heart. A stirring story emerges as Sergei encounters mentors and masters who reveal secrets about the arts of war and, ultimately, the path to peace.

    "Great Book!"

    I have read several Dan Milman's books and loved everyone of them. I expected more of a self help type of book told in a story, but it turned out to be one of the best stories I've read in a long time. Anyone who has read Way of the Peaceful Warrior will love this book and be astounded by how Dan ties it all together in the prologue.

    "Fantastic Story"

    I was totally captivated by this book. I couldn't put it down. It has both emotional highs and lows. Some great insights into life and a great ending.

    Story
    "Fascinating!"

    Once I become accustomed to the Narrator's speaking style during the reading of this book, I found myself addicted to the story of Sergei. I hard a difficult time pausing to eat or sleep. I became hungry, hungry for more chapters, and hungry to hear what lie ahead. I felt as if I were traveling along with Sergei each and every step.
    My only regret was that the story came to an end. How I wish I had a mentor like Sergei.

    "Circle of one"

    After so many years from The Piece full warrior, it is like a circle meeting the start again. So much to learn. So much distance traveled so much more to go...yet a take one step at the time, one breath at the time....learning many 'things' one being:the more I am president in the now, the more 'buck for the money' I will get out of the 'class' called life. A ray of light to you. Carsten

    "Fills in some blanks"

    Very enjoyable story, easy to listen to. No great spiritual insights as such, but fills in some of the blanks from the Peaceful Warrior book very nicely.
