Concise and powerful

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-25-04

Concise, powerful, inspiring, practical, never boring, nice recorded (although you have to get used to the funny accent of Deepak Chopra).
I listened already two times in two days and I'm intending to listen to it many more times.
For each of the seven spiritual laws, you first get some theory and then some assignments how to bring the theory into practice.
To give one example of an assignment : "try not to judge anyone today". Much more difficult than it sounds, but the results can be tremendous.
I have read and listened to a lot of self development books in the past.
Of the short ones, this is one of the best in my opinion.
