The beginning of a new year is always a great time for reflection and asking the big questions to help you make the new year the best ever. That's why I read Dan Millman's "Living on Purpose" book which includes 25 questions and answers to life's universal questions. Although I applaud the questions, quotes and stories, Dan's answers seemed a little too simplistic for me. So, I would only recommend this book to someone who is just starting their spiritual search.

Note: I enjoyed Dan Millman's num

I have learned from and have been influenced by Dan Millman for years. It's surprising that I never read his book “Living On Purpose: Straight Answers To Life's Tough Questions” until now. I found this book to be very enjoyable and full of practical advice that can help anyone along their journey of personal growth.

The book contains twenty-five principles, or as Millman calls them, “House Rules.” These start with rules such as “Earth is a school and daily life is our classroom” and continue with

La unica cosa que me dejo un poco contrariado es que el libro en si es como un blog de preguntas y respuestas, claro con la sabiduria del guerrero pacifico.
El contenido es bueno, con muchas notas y frases inspiradoras e interesantes que a pesar de que mucho ya me lo se de memoria, no esta de mas re visitarlas.
Una lectura express, que aunque peculiar si recomiendo.

Absolutely loved it! It's weird how I agreed with 98% of what he said while engaging readers onto a better quality of life and perspective. Definitely a must read! And it's quite quick to read too. If you don't like dreadfully filled pages, this is a good choice.

Just questions & answers on how to live your life. After reading it a second time recently, I was surprised to find not only similarities but actual references to Constructive Living (see book by David K. Reynolds). Definitely some good advice here.

When you feel like life is really giving it to you and you're up against a wall. This can bring you down from the ledge in about 45 minutes.
