At many points in Dan Millman’s seminal story of personal transformation, the old warrior Socrates shrugs off Dan’s questions with a laconic “It’s the House Rules.” Here, Millman takes more than 100 of the book’s most interesting and enigmatic passages and explores in detail the key ideas behind them, showing their genesis in spiritual philosophies old and new. Drawing on 25 years of experience since first writing the book, he reveals an evolving sensibility and perspective, he drawing practical lessons that readers can apply directly to their lives from even the most mysterious passages. Millman gives readers fresh insight and wisdom by clarifying seemingly paradoxical statements and applying essential teachings to life's toughest questions. Whether readers are coming to Way of the Peaceful Warrior for the first time or belong to its legions of long-time fans, The Peaceful Warrior Companion deepens their experience of this beloved spiritual classic.

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. Read full review
