This book, along with the works of Joseph Campbell, are what set me on the path something like 20 years ago. When you see the claim that it is a book that changes lives you might feel a little cynical about that, but I know it was true for my husband and I. Great book that I am grateful to have read.

Great book. This was actually my first exposure to these types of teachings, and it really opened the door for everything else. I should probably go back and read it again, I'm sure that it would resonate a lot more with me now (as all of these books tend to over time).

I highly recommend you also check out Dan Millman's "The Journeys of Socrates", which tells the story of the life of "Socrates".

http://www.amazon.com/Journeys-Socrates ... 062&sr=8-1

It's more of a story than a book of teachings, but it's a really good story. And of course there are many lessons inside of discipline and awakening.

Thanks for bringing this back up.

I am giggling, after the discussions in ..and other natural laws thread
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=9381
based on Dan Millman's book - the Life you were born to Live; and discussions in the NDE, clair (abilities) and synchronicity thread; about seeing anew, I was thinking - No wonder Millman is such a peaceful warrior, employing the knowledge; Peaceful Warrior would be a good book for those newly discovering the power of the natural laws to read, or to read anew. :lol:

This is an incredible book. I read it when I was about 12 because I was interested in fighting arts back then and thought it was a martial arts adventure novel :D Then I read it and nothing was ever quite the same again...I credit this book with giving my ego a good shake up and starting me on the path :)

Brilliant book! I read it first er..... must be about 10 years ago, but only saw the movie this year. The film version is good too, surprisingly good (I wasn't optimistic :oops: ) and I'd certainly recommend it, though for me there's more in the book. I say get either, or both - it's on my Not to be Missed list.

You may enjoy another of his books - "The Life you were born to live".

There's a part discussion on it here viewtopic.php?f=46&t=9381

But, I'd still suggest ----- finish your exams first!!!! (This is the 'mother' speaking :wink: )
