Basic and unconvincing,
This review is from: The Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives (Paperback)
As far as this type of book is concerned I'm fairly well read and knowledgable and in the real world I have followed this interest for over 30 years, so have a certain self taught epistemological 'expertise'.
The book is poorly written, stilted and totally unconvincing. In particular the dialogue is totally unconvincing. If I had to venture a guess I would say the book is a work of fiction based within the framework of the author's real life. Perhaps if I was new to the genre I might have read the whole thing. As it is I've been unable to finish it because it doesn't move me.
Even the name of the protagonist Socrates is unconvincing because the rather basic priciples espoused are mainly Eastern rather than Greek.
There are far better books than this out there if this is your interest.

I've just been moved to write a review myself the book was so bad. But I got a bit emmotional maybe and just blew it out. You have been a bit more measured... and absolutely right on the money. Totally unconvincing and without soul. Very poorly written..... Albert

You don't need to venture that "guess": the author clearly states in the intro that, obviously, this is a work of fiction. The name also is so explained.
I agree with your other opinions though.
