Publisher's Summary

A 15-year-old boy is walking through a swirling fog on his way to school when a voice calls out, "Come here. We need to talk." Out of the mist emerges an old man with a white beard. He is a fantastic figure, as wizardly as Merlin, as wise as Socrates, as peaceful as Buddha. Whoever he is, the old man has appeared on that very day to change the boy's life.

"You are old enough to learn about things," he says mysteriously. "And who is going to teach you but me?" The old man gives the boy four days of "soul training", a time of riddles, tricks, parables, and fantastic twists that bring out surprising answers to each of four burning questions about spirituality:

  • Do I have a soul?
  • How do wishes come true?
  • What is the supreme force in the universe?
  • How can I change the world?

The boy was Deepak Chopra, who grew up to write and teach about the same invisible things the old man had taught him. "The old man with the white beard showed me the spiritual side of life," says the author, "where real passion and excitement come from. So before you begin, take a deep breath. The story could turn out to be yours."

Excellent, but not my favorite

Would you consider the audio edition of Fire in the Heart to be better than the print version?

It takes a little more concentration than many of his books, so reading it may be better.

Would you recommend Fire in the Heart to your friends? Why or why not?

I would definitely recommend this book, however it does not flow as easily as most of Chopra's books. From the description, I thought I would be listening to one of Chopra's novels. This is more like his non-fiction books. Great information though.

Which scene was your favorite?

Chopra and his teacher are in the road watching the boys tease someone. He learns a valuable lesson from that event.
