This audio edition of the international best seller Way of the Peaceful Warrior is based on the story of Dan Millman, a world-class gymnast who has it all, but is troubled by a vague sense of dissatisfaction with his everyday life. He meets an eccentric old mentor named Socrates, who sets him on a spiritual odyssey that will ultimately deliver or destroy him. Along the way Dan encounters realms of light and darkness, of romance and magic, as he learns what it means to live as a peaceful warrior.

Listening to this is an excellent way to gain further awareness. The story, a continuous metaphor draws one into the void. If you are interested in Buddhism, meditation, Alan Watts, Zen or anything the like, this is a fine addition to any works you already have.

During his lifetime, legendary martial artist Bruce Lee formulated a complex personal philosophy - a synthesis of Eastern and Western ideals - that extolled the virtues of knowledge and total mastery of one's self. Most of his philosophical writings could be found only within the personal library of the Bruce Lee estate - until John Little was given permission to publish them for the wider world.

Alan Watts is wonderful to listen to and his style of presentation is just brilliant. He treats the subject matter with great humour and insight. Listening to him speak is also a joy and I have gained much from this particular work of his.
