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.

"Millman's fluid storytelling makes this an easy read." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
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.
Here, Now, In-The-Moment
All of the life lessons. The only important time is here and now. The joy, happiness and peace in life comes from the journey, not the destination. Many more.
Calming voice and tempo that is consistent with the theme of the book.
The many moments demonstrating Socrates' resiliency.
I can't say, but the performance was absolutely superb. Kudos to Sam Tsoutsouvas!
The characterization was quite impressive, Dan Millman succeeded in transporting his reader into a different world through characters both alive and vibrant.
I found Sergei's training particularly meaningful, it fills in many gaps made in Way of the Peaceful Warrior and paints a better picture.
No, I didn't which is a shame. Sergei's family's death was tragic, but far too predictable as were many of the plot twists.
While I did enjoy the book tremendously, I can't help but be disturbed by small inconsistencies here and there. Parts of the story that just don't fit right in my mind I applaud Dan Millman's story writing abilities but I must say I put down the book entertained, but not truly moved.
