Rating this book 1 star may seem unfair: After all, there is much valuable information, and a good bit of superficial representation of dr. Chopra`s Indian heritage. But my reasons for giving a low evaluation:
- There is a painstaking process going on in medical circles, where the establishment gradually learns to accept new (or maybe rather ancient!) approaches to health, from vegeatbles/antioxydants to meditation. Books like this is an insult to research-oriented doctors, abounding with unsubstantiated claims - and it closes many scientific minds to looking into the potential of meditation to keep and regain health, given dr. Chopra`s fame, fortune and public standing, which obscures the view of workers of more substance, like dr. Dossey. In other words, dr. Chopra is doing the slow-working, more humble-minded doctors that work in the alternative field a disservice and is slowing down the rapprochement between the medical establishment and those who use meditation, sound and the like.
- In doing so, he is selling false hopes and capitalising on people`s fear of death, becoming one of the richest doctors in history in the process. Is it not better to learn to accept aging and prepare for death? I have met many people who have bought Chopra`s books and attended his workshops, but none who have had a fraction of the effects of his methods that he claims. Where is the ethical aspect in this?
- Having worked with a large number of cancer patients through the years, following their fears and struggles, it seems like an insult to ordinary humble workers to say "Reprogram your quantum mind and get rid of the cancer". If Chopra could show one case of a person who could do this, including himself, I`d be willing to change my view of this as a condescending way to treat suffering humans who need compassion and good palliative care, not easy solutions that give the responsibility to the patient, whereas the doctor stands with no soil of the human factor on his hands. This is a travesty of the Hippocratic ideal, and will strengthen the view of alternative doctors as superficial, money-loving peddlers of false hopes. 1 star rating is inevitable, I hate to say. Luckily, there are many good sources of the same knowledge that Chopra embezzles. (Hope I haven`t been too harsh, I have no wish to attack Chopra, but I wish to strengthen a more substantial approach to the issues of aging, health and dying).

Attacking the so-called teachings of people like Dr. Chopra is a thankless task. Specifically, they mean well (unless of course they're just capitalizing on the public's desire to find meaning in their lives, and live longer and better lives.) It's a pity that Chopra doesn't substantiate any of his claims with data. He tries, but fails because he can't; and in so doing he tries to affiliate his ideas with revolutionary thought in physics and biology. He'd like the audience believe that his thinking is a natural outgrowth of theories proposed by such luminaries as Einstein, Schrodinger, etc.. Nothing could be further from the truth. Then again, perhaps Dr. Chopra is nothing more than a New Age snake oil salesman, and a spin-off of the '60s cult-of-gurus, appealing primarily to aging boomers who are desperately trying to give life meaning beyond science. Given the fact that Dr. Chopra is charging upwards of $700 per person (as of the early '90s) to dispense a "primal sound" compatible with that person, I suspect that his motives are about as murky as his thinking.

This book is filled with timeless wisdom. It inspires us to look deep within ourselves to the true healer inherint inside us all. Chopra reminds us that Spirit is eternal, ageless, and not bound by time. As we cultivate a more soulful way of living, we not only have a more joyful life, but we are filled with this joy in every moment. Thanks Deepak Chopra for guiding our thoughts to the endless streams of consciousness within us waiting to be born. -- Samuel Oliver, author of, WHAT THE DYING TEACH US: LESSONS ON LIVING.

Dieses Buch ist ein Muss fuer jeden, der sich um seine physiche und mentale Gesundheit kuemmert und eine hoehere Ebene des Bewusstseins und damit des Lebens selbst erreichen will. Deepak, einer der grossen Weisen unserer Zeit, vereint in wunderbarer Weise Quanten Physik und Medizin mit der 5000-Jahre alten Weisheit der Vedischen Schriften. Besser ist nur noch die persoenliche Erfahrung - am besten in einem Seminar mit Dr. Chopra selbst.

The things that impressed me most about this book are: The insight of many scientific research done on the subject so far. The opening of new hope for people who has a poor family health history. The positive mental as well as habitual approaches recommended would inevitably help to improve health in general. Great Stuff for all health conscious people.

I was very impressed by this book. Chopra has the credentials in the western medical science and the background in the meditative practices of the East Indian culture. The way he melds and correlates the two seems effortless and natural. My rating would be 5 stars if he would have refrained from his "how to" chapters.
