In 19th century Tsarist Russia an orphaned child born of Jewish and Cossack blood grows up in a land of wealthy aristocrats, struggling peasants, and growing discontent. Sent to an elite military academy at the tender age of four, Sergei Ivanov (Socrates) comes of age training to protect a way of life he doesn't understand. When a sudden death forces Sergei to flee, he escapes into the wilderness.

From the heights of love to the depths of despair, from the threat of a mortal enemy to the search for a child he has never met, Sergei Ivanov's odyssey unlocks hidden wisdom at the heart of life. He could never have imagined that from the moment of his birth he was destined to become the peaceful warrior who would change the lives of millions worldwide. The odyssey that unfolds is not about the revolutions of history, but about the revolution in one man's heart. A stirring story emerges as Sergei encounters mentors and masters who reveal secrets about the arts of war and, ultimately, the path to peace.

    " I loved Millman's Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior but this book, written about 20 years later, is even better. The story,perportedly true, is well developed and very exciting in showing Socrates (not the famous philosopher)journey both physically and spiritually to become self-actualized. The book emphasizes how one can raise conciousness both internally and externally with regard to one's own body and the physical world. While not philisophically challenging, the added dimention makes this book much more that just another great adventure. If you like this book, read Trader by Charles de Lint. "

    " I learned that life throws nothing but change at us, and it's people that are truly amazing. "

    " Great Book! While on a trip to the gulf coast, I had found a book to read really inspire and motivate myself for the week I had business. Pretty interesting material if you're into motivation and historical texts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhiannon | 1/13/2014

    " This book is the most powerful, compelleing and insperational jounery that you as a reader will ever go on full of hope loss and guidence you will read this book and never want to put it down untill you get to the end. the end of this book is just mind blowing I recomend everyone to read this book as it sets the bar high for novels from this genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kortnie | 1/8/2014

    " This is one of my new favorites. It was a very good read with a lot of good life lessons for anyone that reads it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis Berketa | 10/29/2013

    " The Journeys of Socrates began slowly, but I found myself being drawn in by the story and eventually couldn't put the book down. The book makes you think about your own beliefs on how life should be lived and I guess I found that some of the 'lessons' taught were in line with my own ideas on life. This book may not appeal to all people, as there are many who do not wish to question themselves, but it is well worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nazim Suzaly | 10/22/2013

    " I highly recommend this book to all kind of readers. The way Dan describes every single action is just way too vivid that every single loss that Sergei went through was so real. Even when his first horse died I almost shed tears! lol haha. But the book itself is a journey that everybody should know. I personally think it is better than Alchemist. The only regret I have is finding this book only 8 years after it has been published. If only I have read is sooner... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 10/20/2013

    " This book tied in the relationship of "Socrates" with Dan in "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior". I loved it as a prequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 10/8/2013

    " This book was AMAZING! It is about the hardships of life, the choices we are always presented with, and how they form who we are! I recommend it to EVERYONE! "

    " This book sat on my shelp for a long time. It's one of those times when God nudged me to read it - now. It was so compelling that I spent the whole day devouring it. And it is now my favotire book, and a lasting reminder to "Stay calm" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake Sanchez | 5/13/2010

    " Really good. The fiction was alright, not the best I've seen. But I'm a sucker to all the Peaceful Warrior references and the self cleansing philosophy it promotes. I would recommend reading Way of the Peaceful Warrior first, it will help anyone appreciate this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adelicia | 4/20/2010

    " Heartbreaking, powerful story. Of the three Peaceful Warrior books, this one was by far my favorite. Still very spiritual, but much less preachy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzy | 4/1/2010

    " This is what I call a book! It has everything in it... Drama, war, romance, mystery...the list goes on. The 'Peaceful Warrior' books are a must read! This one is my favourite out of them all though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 3/30/2010

    " I did like this one heaps. Good story, quite sad in bits though. Made me want to keep reading the saga, but truthfully, this is the only worthwhile one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate | 8/16/2009

    " One of my favorite paradigm shifting books ever. Is it really fiction? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 6/4/2009

    " Although the first half of this book moved slowly for me, the second half was powerful and suspenseful. Everything comes together brilliantly in the last few chapters. I still like The Way of the Peaceful Warrior better, but this is definitely a book worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 5/16/2009

    " Metaphysics and existential philosophy for the masses thrown in a warm, crunchy martial arts story shell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 3/29/2009

    " Socrates is an intersting character that appears in other Millman books. I liked the character and just had to hear his story. An entertaining story to be sure a bit of supernatural spice is thrown in to spice the story up.
