Yet another first-person spiritual odyssey, this one from a gymnast whose shaman is an old grease monkey. That so many gurus in this kind of literature live humbly reminds one of the old New Yorker cartoon in which the society matron asks her capitalist husband, "If you're so rich, how come you're not smart?" To this observer, Millman is a bit young, his life too charmed to speak authoritatively about enlightenment and cosmic wisdom, but millions of avid readers disagree. However one takes his professions of sagacity, as narrator as well as author, he has ample skill and showmanship, though one gets the impression that one has heard it all before.
