Author Notes

Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India in 1946. He was educated as a medical doctor, specializing in endocrinology, at All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He served as Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, and has taught at Tufts and Boston University Medical Schools. He recognized limitations in the ways that his medical education approached treatment of individuals. Introduced to the ancient methods of Hindu healing, known as Ayurveda, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he saw a way to add a spiritual dimension to treatment of illness. Chopra's thinking led him to develop a theory that he called Quantum Healing, which combines Western and Hindu medical practice.

In 1984, Chopra brought Ayurvedic medicine to the United States, and within a year he established the Ayurvedic Health Centre of Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He is also the founding President of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and eventually founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing.

He has written more than 55 books including Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old; Creating Health: How to Wake Up the Body's Intelligence; Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams; The Shadow Effect and Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet; Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges; Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being; and The Healing Self: A Revolutionary New Plan to Super Charge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life. He has won numerous awards including a Quill Award for Peace Is the Way and the grand prize at the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards for The Book of Secrets. He also writes novels including The Return of Merlin; Soulmate; and Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment.

Booklist Review

Chopra, known for his philosophy of better living through quantum physics, returns to his central message: that the mind-body connection is a major player in all facets of health. Here he puts aging under the microscope and concludes that to age or not to age just might be a question we have some control over. Though at first it seems as if Chopra is saying that illness and even death might be obsolete, he backs off from that premise a little, acknowledging that, on a practical level, doing away with death is still a little tricky. Still, he contends the concept is valid; after all, he argues, there are spiritual masters who are said to have lived for several centuries. More useful for ordinary mortals are Chopra's discussions about how the body takes its clues from the programming it receives. He urges readers to realize that the body is a product of awareness, that beliefs, thoughts, and emotions cause chemical reactions in cells, and that if you change your perception, you can change the experience of your body and the world. Many of the practical suggestions Chopra offers--involving exercise, dieting, and relaxation techniques--are not news, but he does provide a genuinely fresh way of looking at the aging process, empowering his readers to make choices that will positively influence the way they age. There's no doubt this book will attract an audience, but skeptics are sure to ask, Does any of this work or is it just more New Age mumbo jumbo? Like my grandmother used to say, "Try it. What can it hurt?" (Reviewed May 15, 1993)0517592576Ilene Cooper

Publisher's Weekly Review

Chopra ( Quantum Healing ) is one of our perennial gurus, appealing to millions but offering them a suspect brew of panacea and escapism. The message of his new book? ``We are not victims of aging, sickness, and death. These are part of the scenery, not of the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.'' The basis for his belief, Chopra argues, is quantum physics and the work of such scientists as Heisenberg, Bohr and Einstein, with whose help Chopra proposes to tell us how to stave off the inevitable changes brought on by mortality and the passing of years. He advises us on how to ``defeat entropy,'' to ``believe'' enough to offer palpable resistance to processes of physical alteration, and to ``reinterpret your body'' such that renewal will come of it. He himself believes in ``a land where no one is old,'' and where ``we create our bodies as we create the experience of our world.'' He is also a proponent of ``the science of longevity,'' and cites research by doctors (sometimes nameless) to back himself up when expounding upon it. But alert readers will finish the book with unsettling questions, the result of a book that is rife with inspirational conviction but at times thin on substance. 150,000 first printing; major ad/promo; author tour; BOMC and QPB selection.

Library Journal Review

Chopra, a proponent of the Indian Maharishi Ayurveda system of healing, has written a book that combines philosophy, biology, and modern health research in an attempt to convince the reader that the effects of aging are largely preventable. Since the practical suggestions are mixed in with theory, case studies, and rather complicated biological data, the book sometimes rambles and seems disorganized. Several of the recommendations about diet and exercise contradict each other. Followers of Chopra will demand this book. For libraries that have the author's previous books ( Perfect Health , LJ 6/1/90) and large alternative medicine collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/93.-- Natalie Kupferberg, Montana State Univ. Lib., Bozeman (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
