Dan Millman is a former world champion gymnast, college professor, and martial arts instructor. His books have inspired more than three million readers in 28 languages. He has taught at numerous writers conferences and speaks worldwide, presenting Peaceful Warrior seminars to people from all walks of life.
Journeys, the prequel to Millman's novel Way of the Peaceful Warrior published 25 years ago, begins with the violent birth of Sergei Ivanov in 19th-century tsarist Russia. Young Sergei is sent to an elite Cossack military boarding school for intensive training, and in the course of saving another student's life, he makes a powerful enemy. When he leaves the school, his odyssey begins in a quest for revenge. But as he moves forward, Sergei encounters masters who reveal secrets about martial arts and the path to peace. Although Sam Tsoutsouvas's narration is sometimes rather flat, the ending is exciting and moving.
