Dan Millman

Way of the Peaceful Warrior – Book

Dan Millman — a former world champion athlete, Stanford University coach, martial arts instructor and Oberlin College professor — has authored 16 books published in 29 languages, including his classic, Way of the Peaceful Warrior (released as a film with Nick Nolte by Universal in 2007).

A popular international speaker, Dan has influenced people from all walks of life.

Way of the Peaceful Warrior is based on the story of Dan Millman, a world champion athlete, who journeys into realms of romance and magic, light and darkness, body, mind, and spirit. Guided by a powerful old warrior named Socrates and tempted by an elusive, playful woman named Joy, Dan is led toward a final confrontation that will deliver or destroy him. Readers join Dan as he learns to live as a peaceful warrior.

This international bestseller conveys piercing truths and humorous wisdom, speaking directly to the universal quest for happiness.

During his junior year at the University of California, Dan Millman first stumbled upon his mentor (nicknamed Socrates) at an all-night gas station. At the time, Millman hoped to become a world-champion gymnast.

“To survive the lessons ahead, you’re going to need far more energy than ever before,” Socrates warned him that night. “You must cleanse your body of tension, free your mind of stagnant knowledge, and open your heart to the energy of true emotion.” From there, the unpredictable Socrates proceeded to teach Millman the “way of the peaceful warrior.” At first Socrates shattered every preconceived notion that Millman had about academics, athletics, and achievement.

But eventually Millman stopped resisting the lessons, and began to try on a whole new ideology–one that valued being conscious over being smart, and strength in spirit over strength in body.

Although the character of the cigarette-smoking Socrates seems like a fictional, modern-day Merlin, Millman asserts that he is based on an actual person. Certain male readers especially appreciate the coming-of-age theme, the haunting love story with the elusive woman Joy, and the challenging of Western beliefs about masculine power and success.

~ My daughter read it and really wanted her dad and me to read it as well. It is a great thought-provoking book. Very worth the read.

When someone asks me to name my favorite among all the books I’ve written,  I ask them what a parent of three or four or six children might say if asked to name their favorite, and they get the point: I love them all. No one is better, only different.

Certainly my first, or signature book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, is best known, and close to my heart. Yet each book provides its own unique facets. And yet . . . and yet . . . I do have a special feeling about The Four Purposes of Life.  Because it truly delivers on the promise of its subtitle — “finding meaning and direction in a changing world.”

This book, which offers hope as well as encouraging reminders, is both timely and timeless, exploring and answering deep (yet often unasked) questions at the core of our lives:  What am I here to do? What do I really want?  Is getting what I want going to take me to where I want to be? And finally, What is the purpose of my life?

This book contains some important elements from earlier books, but for the first time places them in their proper context.  After reading it once, and even again, most readers will experience a quantum leap in wisdom and perspective that can last a lifetime.
