This is the first book I ever read about what I call "Conscious Living." It talks about the benefits of present-moment awareness, explains the real source of happiness, and, in general, demonstrates the way to live a more peaceful and fulfilling life. Although I have read many books on this subject since (I even wrote one myself), I will always be grateful to Dan Millman for leading the way with his inspiring story of one man's search for truth and meaning. Even if you don't read this book, then go see the movie! It does an excellent job of capturing the high points of Dan's story, and presents Dan's message in a deeply moving way.
