      Not much here, except for a lot of Dan and anecdotes of some random people he happens to know The numerology section is absolutely non credible bs, and the zen mindfulness section is mostly valid and important.One valuable quotation There is truly nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment A person s life is a succession of moment after moment When one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do and nothing else to pursue Hagakure, The Book of the Samu [...]

      This is an incredible book It serves almost as an guide on how to live life while also retaining its self help esque style and values I loved this book a great deal and would recommend it to anyone who s currently living life as I m sure many of you are One of the most empowering and fulfilling books I have read in a long time.

    3. Brenda says:

      An overviw of Millman s other books, I thought this might be a good introduction to his work While there were a few insights worth remembering, I felt like this was a too shallow treatment of a deeper subject.

    4. David Calhoun says:

      Started off promising, with good tidbits here and there, but it turned into a mess of numerology completely of of nowhere, random out of context quotes from famous people and celebrities, and random self promotion of the author s other books.

    5. Jen says:

      It was OK Not quite what I expected and not as powerful as Way of the Peaceful Warrior It served a purpose for me in the few days it took to finish It would be great for recent college grads to read I did underline many passages, so worth it, but is not quite what I was hoping for at this time Yet, it still got the job done of changing my focus back to being spiritually based again from my mind running amok in trying to make sense of it all The present moment is all we haveoh yeah

      Most of us tend to focus our energy in one or maybe two avenues We see things in a very either or way Either we make family a priority or we build a successful career Either we make money or we follow our calling Balancing what we have is difficult enough so doing it all seems rather unrealistic The Four Purposes of Life tells us that not only is having it all possible but having a balance between all the parts of our lives is crucial The book looks at the four purposes and is taught in stages o [...]

      I read this book upon a friend s mention on life path numbers and how the author deals with that The numerology part on life paths were much realistically handled than many other sources did on the subject, since it is easy to go hoaxing and selling self confidence statements It rather tells you to, well, go do it The rest of the book sounded like a crash course on being productive existentialists who can cope with global stress life with a flavour of numerology for the confused, well civilized [...]

      Amazing book , recommend it to any person feels lost or disappointedthese are some of its amazing words i liked Earth is a perfect school, and daily life is the classroom Lessons repeat themselves until we learn them If we don t learn the easier lessons, they get harder We learn and grow through challenges, and every adversity has hidden gifts Life is an experiment, a laboratory of self exploration Fulfillment lies not in the work itself but in the quality and care you bring to it Tyrants, dicta [...]

    13. Robert says:

      Dan Millman is a wonderful writer and life guide Every time I pick up one of his books it is a game changer This book although short in page numbers is anything but lacking From the first page to the last, the book is full of wisdom on how to live a life that is truly yours I would recommend this book to anyone I believe the wisdom in this book can serve everyone and help them on their own heroes path Thank you Dan for your journey and helping us on ours.

    14. Laura says:

      I like Dan Millman and his easy to read and understand concepts but I found this book to be a little boring As I was reading I was waiting for something to touch me but it really didn t Maybe it s because I am familiar with a lot of the concepts he writes about or maybe it s because I didn t feel like he generated a lot of enthusiasm for his subject matter Whichever the reason, I have read better books of his and wouldn t recommend this book before others.

    15. Tommy Acierno says:

      I ve enjoyed Dan s books since 1999 The sub title for his first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, is a book that changes lives I m happy to say that I was one of those changed individuals However, I found this book to be largely a review of his previous works which I ended up needing However, I was hoping for fresher material.

    16. Deirdre Cavener says:

      The ClimbThis book crossed my path this morning and I dove in with vigor I couldn t put it down until the final page There is no fluff in this book it Is a short deep read and well worth the time.

    17. Caro Nam says:

      I enjoyed the first half of the book The rest was okay, but it became very repetitive redundant and too abstract for my taste Good summary of the important things in life but far from groundbreaking.

    18. Heather says:

      Pretty good Never really goes too in depth though Not sure about the whole life path number thing I didn t come up with the numbers I expected, although the I think about it the I resonate to the numbers that did come up Don t know what it means for me yet.

    21. Stacey says:

      This one was good, but nowhere near as good as Way Of The Peaceful Warrior Still a promising read.

    22. Heather says:

      Reader s Digest version of his other works A good reminder or a good intro.

    23. Gregory says:

      His book Way of the Peaceful Warrior is still his best work This one was OK but as another reviewer said nothing really fresh Much respect though.

    24. Cdawg says:

      A short read that delivers some simple truths with a light touch It is like eating a light salad versus a 24 oz steak it is delightful and fresh not heavy and moribund.

    25. Royale says:

      A waste of a book in my opinion A rehash of concepts and no actionable advice.

    26. Pamela says:

      lovely overview of how to life a happy, well balanced life blueprint for living.

    27. Marc says:

      Classic Millman.

    28. Veronica says:

      It s a great book I had many light bulb moments reading this book It contains many sound advice for those who feel lost confused about what they should be doing with their lives.

    29. Lily says:

      I got a lot of insight into my own view on life in general and what my life path could be It doesn t offer a clear cut answer but it sure opens the pathway as to where to go.

    30. Joshua Alexander says:

      Simple wisdom and a nice reminder of important aspects about our life purpose.
