`You've learned body control and even some mind control, but your heart has not yet opened. Your goal should not be invulnerability, but vulnerability - to the world, to life, and therefore, to the Presence you felt. I've tried to show you by example that a warrior's life is not about imagined perfection or victory; it is about love. Love is the warrior's sword; wherever it cuts, it gives life, not death.'
This novel, which has been a constant bestseller since it was first published in 1980, tells the story of Dan Millman, a young athletics student who, haunted by nightmares and unable to sleep one night, goes out for a walk and wanders into a petrol station. There he meets an old pump attendant who seems strangely familiar, even though Dan has never met him before. The pump attendant - or Socrates, as Dan calls him - seems to know a great deal about the hidden side of life and, after a bit of persuasion, agrees to pass on what he can of his wisdom to Dan. And thus Dan sets out on the way of the peaceful warrior.... Rich in insight, there is much in this entertaining story that can help you to change your life for the better.240pp, 140mm x 216mm, softback, 2006
