This is THE book that changed my life literally. It suggested yoga as a way to learn to meditate...I am now a full time yoga instructor, and am truly happy.
Skimmed, enjoyed the review.
Good to read along with Way of the Peaceful Warrior.Here’s some takeaways copied from the book:The only way we can “change our past” is to change our behavior in the present, because the present will soon become our past. We also shape our future by the actions we take right now.No matter what we’re thinking or feeling - whether we’re sad or motivated, shy or assertive, confident or full of doubt - our quality of our lives will always depend, in large part, on what we do today. Today is the door...
This is the 4th book I've read by Dan Millman and it's yet another gem. If you haven't read "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" (WOTPW) - arguably Dan's most popular book - go read that first before you read this one. This book expands on many of the possibly-confusing quotes and concepts in WOTPW in a consistently useful and insightful way.Much like my copy of WOTPW, my copy of this book has numerous highlighted passages, perfect for quick bits of inspiration or reason enough to read the book all ove...
One of the best books I have ever read, This book has changed my life. I came from from a place of having a good childhood, blessed parents who bought me everything , and got mostly what i wanted in life. Yet, I was lonely, alone on the inside, materialistic things couldn't buy me happiness anymore. I have a job that I hated, I was in pursuit of girls after girls, and was going through a depressed, hatred, "Why me" attitude in life, till I found a Socretas at work who told me to watch the movie....
I had high hopes for this when Millman mentioned that some of the woo woo moments he experienced were possibly due to it being late and him not having a full grasp of how much time passed. However, as the book progressed and he began advocating cleansing fasts, detoxes, and other forms of bullshit, this got harder and harder to read. Look up the facts, people: toxins don't work that way; they are processed through the liver, and unless you're eating a high fat low fiber diet, which I guarantee m...
I was given this book by a friend and colleague to read after viewing the film based off of first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior. The movie was life changing and so reading this book for further analysis is quite helpful but it's so good so for that I'm willing to back track and read the first book after I finish this book despite the fact that I've seen the movie. I don't want to miss anything as I continue in Dan Millman's series of books upon the Peaceful Warrior in all of us.
I actually liked this better than the original book.
Dan Millman comes to me always in special moments. This time wasn't different. After the 'Way of the peaceful warrior', I already knew I want to read his next books as well. After couple of months, I dived into 'The Journeys of Socrates' which was way different than his first book. Normally I would be just disappointed and put it back on the shelf after not being fascinated by first pages or chapters so I did put it back on the shelf but rather thinking that the timing is just not good. I will t...
I haven't read the previous book so the format was a bit strange but actually turned out to be quite refreshing as I read on.Excellent teachings in a condensed form, will definitely return to reread this and check out Millman's related books!Very good!!!
A very good chance to relive the awesome story that is 'Way of the Peaceful', but with a handbook-like approach. A good read if you enjoyed Way of the Peaceful Warrior.
Fun and a Easy ReadI In Joyed reading Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior. It is a fun and easy read. Seeing the movie or reading The Peaceful Warrior is recommended but not required.
Another oneDan has put together such inspiration with these books. I'm glad to have stumbled across his writings as they have proven beneficial to my every moment
A good companion to the way of the peaceful warrior <3
Parallels and pre-dating to the celestine prophecy by James Redfield in terms of folding in idease that are titled as new age. Ideas of focusing and acting in the now (which aren't so new)are similar to how we perceive animals to be - like a puppy, or cat. Other ideas: "Mind is illusion, being is body". moderation is like warm tea - embrace with an awareness and celebration, controlled desire with understood consequences and not excessiveness.
Though I thought the Way of the Peaceful Warrior was quite straightforward it turns out that there were things that needed to be explained, and it was also nice to get some more info from 'behind the scenes' :)
The "companion" to "The way of the peaceful warrior," in which he really overexplains all the lessons in the former book. Unnecessary. But then, I got something out of being reminded of some of these simple truths again.
Should be titled Regurgitation of The Peaceful Warrior. Not so much a "companion" as it is a breakdown of what the original book was about. Some nice quotes in it, but really a useless book.
Elaboration on certain topics discussed in “Way of the peaceful warrior” by the same author. It makes sense to read this book only if you read and liked “Way of the peaceful warrior” book.
This is a book to put to use, not to peruse. Using what it explains will take the book off of the shelf, and you into the life you are meant to live.
Good book, goes a bit further into many key passages in the original Way of The Peaceful Warrior. Thoroughly enjoyed both books.
Das Buch ist eine gute Ergänzung zum "Pfad des friedvollen Kriegers". Millman gibt Interpretations- und Umsetzungshilfen. Ohne das Hauptwerk gelesen zu haben weniger empfehlenswert
Eh. It's a play-by-play of the book, including sections of the book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior. I loved that book…but this one isn't as good.
Reviewed this book for my running blog. The author has a nice way with highlighting many principles we all know but rarely follow.
Another great bbok...
