Summary:

In nineteenth century Tsarist Russia an orphaned child born of Jewish and Cossack blood grows up in a land of wealthy aristocrats, struggling peasants, and growing discontent.Sent to an elite military academy at the tender age of four, Sergei Ivanov (Socrates) comes of age training to protect a way of life he doesn't understand. When a sudden death forces Sergei to flee, he escapes into the wilderness.
From the heights of love to the depths of despair, from the threat of a mortal enemy to the search for a child he has never met, Sergei Ivanov's odyssey unlocks hidden wisdom at the heart of life. He could never have imagined that from the moment of his birth he was destined to become the peaceful warrior who would change the lives of millions worldwide. The odyssey that unfolds is not about the revolutions of history, but about the revolution in one man's heart. A stirring story emerges as Sergei encounters mentors and masters who reveal secrets about the arts of war and, ultimately, the path to peace.

    Great story! Keeps you hooked in. One of my favorites books!

    Well, I think this book would have been much better in an unabridged version. At least I would assume so, considering the "choppiness". I think entire portions of the book that would have given more detail, and hence a more complete picture, were eliminated. An example of this would be his time spent with the monks. He spent YEARS there, but that detail of how his time was spent is missing/vague. I found myself not caring all that much about any of the characters, and found the antagonist to be more of a caricature than a character. Again, I think the abridgement made this happen.
