"Thoughtful and thought-provoking." (Publishers Weekly)
There is a ton of information packed into this book and all of it is wonderful to hear. Every section has something of interest and I was eager for more down to the last minute.
i wrote an enthusiastic review about the abridged version of this book. the unabridged book provides lots more detail which makes understanding of the content much easier. the only disadvantage: you miss deepak's gentle voice, because the unabridged audio book is narrated by another speaker. but still: a good voice!
I appreciate this book . I also own the hardcopy, but prefer the spoken word in this case, also because it is narrated by a person whose first language is English. The information is extremey worthwile, and I enjoy reading the book in addition to listening the audio version. I highly recomend this title; I find it the best of all his books.
I found the narrator was an excellent choice for coveying the power of this book. Deepak has a beautiful voice however sometimes its uniqueness can cause the listener to lose the focus on the powerful message of his work.
This book is a tool kit for a spiritual life and i have been making incredible strides since the first download.
There is no padding or gimmickery,just pure heartfelt spirit to spirit transfer of the truth.
Buy this book and you will be transformed.
I enjoy Deepak's voice and wish that I would have paid closer attention before I bought this book. I can't follow more than 5 min with this narrator because he is so boring and lacking in personality. I'll pay more attention in the future, but if hearing Deepak narrate his own books is important to you, don't buy this one.
I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I have. Don't we all love the "Aha!" moment when suddenly something we've always wanted to know, or hear, or (insert your own word here) suddenly pops up, as it can only really do in an audio book. And there were several of these experiencers for me, and I've been around, and around again, philosophy, religion, history, etc..
This book is a favorite for me, now, by a favorite author, and I wish I was rich enough to buy a copy for everybody in America, I'm that sure that nearly everyone would get something valuable out of it, as long as they listened carefully, and perhaps listened again. Everytime I listen I catch new, exciting things that somehow get by me the time before. This is a surprising, hard to categorize book, a gift of love, surely, from Deepak to his fans and to the world.
I enjoyed the "content" of this book but it was really hard to listen to with reader's voice lacking passion for the information he was relating. The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire (read by Deepak) was fantastic, and I expected the same emotion with this book. Instead, I found myself looking forward to it being over. The secret I learned from the "Book of Secrets" is only by Deepak audiobooks read by the man himself.
I have read this book and just finished listening to it. It is deeply insightful, one of my favorites by Deepak. The reader has a very relaxing voice, you can really get into it.
After my first listen, I think this is a lovely book that goes into depth regarding spiritual ideas. I like that Deepak Chopra's work tends to encompass ideas from so many ideologies and scientific theories. To me, his work contains so much breadth yet manages to stay concise and readable. One thing...the narrator here does have a nice voice, but I am a big fan of Deepak's voice and narration, especially his most recent audiobooks. Would love to hear this narrated in his own voice.
"Force for good in the world"
I appreciated having the book read but would have liked to listen to the author as he has such a lovely voice. I would also consider having a print version to underline important points.
It is challenging and inspiring. Lots of new things to learn and try for myself.
All of it.
No because it needs to be assimilated in small chunks as there is so much to take in.
If everyone who reads Deepak Chopra puts his suggestions into practice the world will be a better place.
"A MUST for anyone on a spiritual journey"
Deepak Chopra is one of the most fascinating spiritual teachers I have ever come across. If you are I a sporitual journey then Deepak Chopra should be high up on your reading list. He covers a vast range of topics and rarely repeats himself in this book or any of his others here on audible meaning you never get bored of listening to his wisdom. Although it gets quite deep in places it's fine if you listen to it in several parts. If you are going to start with just one of his books then start with this one it's by far the best of many of his fascinating reads!
