Despite his success, college student and world-champion athlete Dan Millman is haunted by a feeling that something is missing from his life. Awakened one night by dark dreams, he wanders into an all-night gas station where a chance encounter with the enigmatic Socrates starts Dan on a spiritual odyssey, which throws his perfect but shallow life into total disarray. With a unique blend of Eastern philosophy and Western training, Socrates' insight and wisdom help Dan recover from a devastating motorcycle accident and takes Dan on a journey that tests the limits of his mind, body, and spirit. Discovering that he has much to learn and even more to leave behind, Millman's story is a moving tale about the power of human will.
