    great shorter bk on life. He defines three main aspects of life, basic needs, mental needs, and spiritual needs. A good build on his original books.

    I just watched a movie last week called Peaceful Warrior, about a gymnast who's inspired by a mythical, elderly gas station attendant. The movie is based on the life of it's writer, whom also wrote No Ordinary Moments. Some people may find this to be sluggish and "another run-of-the-mill" self help books, but it's so much more. Read between the lines and you'll discover so much more. I just watched a movie last week called Peaceful Warrior, about a gymnast who's inspired by a mythical, elderly gas station attendant.

    I'm in the middle of this book now and finding it rich with solid information and encouragement. We need new paradigms, open minds and hearts today and I'm in favor of anything that helps us get there. I like how he clearly tries to be open to all the traditions and focuses on the needs of human beings in practical, sensible ways that anyone can read, understand and perhaps try.

    I think that this is one of the most important books for living every day life and being aware of the joy that can be found in life. This book will increase both your awareness of your surroundings and the joy you take in living because (as the title suggests) there are NO ordinary moments.

    I felt that this book actually brought about more change in my life than "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" did. This is a truly inspirational book and is a must have in your collection.

    I liked this even more than Dan Millman's other books, because it seemed to go a bit deeper. Have reread parts several times and still love it! I liked this even more than Dan Millman's other books, because it seemed to go a bit deeper. Have reread parts several times and still love it!

    This book took me far longer to read than I expected, but maybe I was just resisting all of the incredibly useful information within it. While slow going at first, it really started to pick up after the first section. As usual, Dan does a fantastic job of applying the lessons and insights to anyone's life. While we all come from different places, times, situations; we do still have a lot in common, and that often has to do with how we struggle and suffer.

While slow going at first, it really started to pick up after the first section. As usual, Dan does a fantastic job of applying the lessons and insights to anyone's life. While we all come from different places, times, situations; we do still have a lot in common, and that often has to do with how we struggle and suffer. Dan hones in on those things and offers ways to open up the resistance and relieve the pain (most of which we choose to hold on to for no other reason than its familiar). Like many of Dan's books that I've read so far, this is another one that would be easily worth reading once a year to review the info and see how it can help you move forward with your life (mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally). While I highly enjoyed Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives, The Journeys of Socrates, and Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior: Teachings from the Lost Years, I have to say that I enjoyed this book THE MOST out of all the Millman books I've read. That being said, I highly doubt this book would have made such an impact if I hadn't read the other 3 first, knowing what Dan has gone through. In my option, this book is the missing link to the trifecta of books that Dan is best known for.

    I really loved this book. It was easy to read, loaded with practical advice that wouldn't scare anyone off as being too out there. Dan really has a way to relate to the average Jo out there, to set out an easy starting point and to make spiritual lessons seem ordinary, even though the book is called No Ordinary Moments.

    I read this book frequently. It can always send a message which has purpose in my life now. It reminds me not to let the world around me draw my focus away from my greatest joys; introspection and self-evaluation leading to a deeper understand of self and self improvement.

    Dan Millman (the author) melds zen philosophy with principles taken from a number of the major religions to form a life guide. You may not agree will a the principles with in the text but you will still benefit from the introspection the book forces you to conduct.

    It builds on the foundation on being a peaceful warrior from a person's core level and up. Great for Dan Millman enthusiasts and those practicing interrelated spiritual disciplines.

    I read it everyday to remind myself that there are no ordinary moments and every single day is especial. There it it goes, another moment that I can not get back.

Reading this book gave me a much better insight into some of the things I was struggling to understand and realize from the original text. Thank you for this follow on book. The first one changed my life, this one helped me refine it. I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in a more meaningful, mindful life.

    No ordinary moments made me look at my own coping mechanisms and basic everyday behaviour. This book is a more provocative read than Millman's other books. A well written book with lots of exercises therein. Sometimes with the presence of many exercises the book can come across as a manual than a "smooth reading" book. I recommend this to anybody that wants to look deeper at their everyday behaviours. No ordinary moments made me look at my own coping mechanisms and basic everyday behaviour.

    Excellent, but it lost me when Millman started referencing energy fields & hippie stuff. I really liked the exercises, they're practical, simple, and helped me through so much.

    This book was written in 1992, almost 30 years ago, but the insights and sentiments are so appropriate for today that it hardly shows its age. Dan Millman was obviously a man before his time - at least in North America - as he seamlessly blends old wisdom, modern psychology and practical action.
