Way Of The Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman

I listened to this as an audio book. I was a bit skeptic with the subtitle of “A Book That Changes Lives” but I can say that it will (or should) change your outlook on life. Part fiction, part based on his life, Millman takes you on his journey as a young college student at UC Berkeley. As a varsity gymnast chasing his Olympic dream, he has everything a young person could want with his whole life ahead of him yet doesn’t truly feel happy. He meets a wise old man who makes a major impact on his life and challenges his ability to thrive. Watching his own death from a distance, Millman is able to get his priorities in line and become a warrior at peace.

Marley & Me, John Grogan

Are you a dog person? Follow along as the author and his young bride decide to buy a puppy to dip their toes into parenthood. As they navigate life and a growing family, their sometimes wild but always loyal canine is close by. Marley is a constant reminder of the saying, “a dog is man’s best friend.” This one had me laughing and crying. This book was later made into a movie starring Jennifer Aniston.
