9780060750237: The Journeys of Socrates (Peaceful Warrior Saga)

An inspirational tale that tells the incredible life story of Sergei Ivanov, affectionately known as Socrates, a sage whose wisdom was destined to change the lives of not only author Dan Millman but also the countless readers of his first book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior.

In the heart of Tsarist Russia in 1872, an orphaned boy of Jewish and Cossack descent seeks to find his place in the world. The Journeys of Socrates is an odyssey of courage and love, revealing how a boy became a man, a man became a warrior, and how a warrior found peace.

Dan Millman first described the wise enigmatic man he called Socrates in Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Now, in telling the life story of that old service station mechanic, Dan reveals universal truths about all our lives and reminds us of a courage and love as strong and ancient as the roots of the world. From tales of life at a Russian military school to the flight of a fugitive, survival in the wilderness to marriage and the search for family, The Journeys of Socrates is full of tragedy, triumph and hard-earned wisdom from the soul of a peaceful warrior.

Review:

“Millman’s fluid storytelling makes this an easy read.”
— Publishers Weekly

From the Author:

I devoted four years of my life to writing The Journeys of Socrates. Each of my books has a different purpose. For Journeys, my intentions included: relating the life of my old mentor; addressing a number of themes, especially how a warrior found peace -- how to break the cycles of revenge and retribution even when they seem justified. My other books, including Way of the Peaceful Warrior, convey didactic material and reminders for living. In this new book, I did not want to clone my first book, but rather to write a strong and original story. It includes many reminders about life, but they are found in the subtext (and more directly in conversations later in the story). As Sergei's mentor reminds him: In combat and in life, expect nothing, but be prepared for anything. I would advice readers of Journeys to do the same.
