"This story is mine, but the way belongs to us all."
-- Dan Millman
Dan Millman's books and teachings have been a guiding light to millions of people. Now comes the true story of his search for the good life, a quest for meaning in the modern world. In vivid detail, he describes his evolution from childhood dreamer to world-class athlete, including the events that led him to write the spiritual classic Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Over the course of two decades Dan was guided by four radically different mentors: the Professor, a scientist-mystic; the Guru, a charismatic spiritual master; the Warrior-Priest, a rescuer of lost souls; and the Sage, a servant of reality. Each of them generated mind-expanding experiences that prepared Dan for his calling as a down-to-earth spiritual teacher. This book also contains commentaries by his wife Joy with her perspectives of the four mentors and their life together. At times funny, at times poignant, this memoir will delight Dan's longtime fans and inspire new generations of readers who wish to live with a peaceful heart and a warrior's spirit.
