The Way of The Peaceful Warrior – Book Review


Way of the peaceful warriorEarlier this year I hired a coach to teach me how to develop my intuition.

During our first session he suggested I pick up The Way of The Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman.

The plan was to observe the antagonist’s tactics for growing the main character.

Instead, I became the student.

The Illusion of Happiness

Before this book, I’ve always thought happiness was something you strive for.

That success was necessary to be happy.

How wrong I was.

Happiness is available this very second.

When you let go of the illusions your mind’s created around what it takes to be happy, things change drastically.

It’s not about wealth.

It’s not about achievements.

It’s about being here, now.

Who Can Benefit

I’d recommend this book to anyone, but if you’re…

  • new to personal development,
  • bouncing back from a shortcoming
  • are someone who chases lofty goals

this book is a must read.

What I didn’t Like

The book starts slow.

If you’re familiar with meditation, mindfulness, and the like, it may seem a bit dull at first.

But hang in there. The proof is in the pudding.


I’d like to note that the links above do provide me with a small amount of commission, with no added costs to you.
