In 1980 Dan Millman published a New Age semi-autobiographical novel, WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR, which focuses on a 94-year-old guru named Socrates. This prequel tells the story of Socrates's earlier life in Russia. Millman himself speaks briefly after the close of this narrative, describing the circumstances that led him to his spiritual teacher and the stories of Socrates's history--but these will be of interest primarily to those who take Millman's claims seriously. The most enjoyment comes from Sam Tsoutsouvas's rich and varied narration. Millman's prose is clunky, and he tends to overexplain, but Tsoutsouvas's delivery is masterful, changing a thin story into something like classic radio melodrama with his breathy pauses and his growling of the villain's names.
