You can live to be a hundred and enjoy each of those years as a fully functioning person—or so says Chopra Unconditional Life , , etc. An intriguing set of Census Bureau statistics cited here notes that the number of centenarians is twice what it was ten years ago- -and is expected to double again by the millennium. Prolonging fruitful lives is not a question of mind over matter, Chopra contends, but, rather, of mind and matter—mind and body—together at one with the universe. In discussing how awareness—or lack of it—affects the physical symptoms of aging, for instance, Chopra builds an authoritative base using research from Harvard, Duke, and Stanford that shows that mental, social, and intellectual activity can keep people vital and alert as they age.

I know so many people who adore Deepak Chopra and I will say he writes in such a magnificent vibrant way. This book was to long for me and I just wasn't interested enough to stay with it. I did like some of what I read. I consider myself a spiritual person so these types of books are going to appeal to me. It was way to long and some of it was very complicated.
Maybe I just did not "get it" which is fine and I will admit reading it felt like a chore. On the other hand.. Had it been condensed maybe I would have appreciated it more. My favorite part was the Heart Transplant patient who started assuming characteristics of the person whose heart he received. Now that's the stuff I like to read about and I will say I have hear d of things like that happening, not just the one cited in this book. Philosophical and Spiritual books interest me but this one was to lengthy.
Some people seem to rave about Deepak Chopra. Chopra has much similar to say as Weil and somehow need desperately a good book editor to help him say it. Perhaps the problem is everything has to link to his idea of quantum where he is drawing on quantum physics to bolster his case. For someone who is conscious only of the material world, power is limited to material forces In contrast"unbounded intelligence, freedom, and power are inherent in the unified field that Einstein and the ancient sages shared in their vision.
Immortality dawns when you realize that you deserve your place in the eternal flow. Yes the way we think and our emotional lives have an effect of our physical bodies. Yes faith and belief has an effect on us both physically and emotionally. Both Weil and Chopra have the same premis but one is far more convincing and easier to read. View 1 comment.

I started reading this book hoping this one will be a little bit better than his other books. However, it made a long road trip quite entertaining. First of all, advices he gives are ridiculously narcissitic. To go through the routine he suggested, one must be wealthy enough to support two maids or have a slave-like wife who does nothing but her husbands biddings.
I doubt any husband w I started reading this book hoping this one will be a little bit better than his other books. I doubt any husband will do the same for his wife. Secondly,I grew up in India and met plenty of men who followed similar regimens with the help of maids, wives, and daughters.
I doubt that they lived any longer or had respect of others. Most of them were cranky old men obsessed with themselves. Mar 22, Charuga rated it really liked it. I enjoy Chopra's books. Biostat 29 baby!!! View all 3 comments. Aug 15, Barbara P rated it really liked it. What a treasure of a book!
It was timely to read this book as John and I are now in the older generation. He spells out so clearly the difference between growing older and staying youthful in mind, heart and spirit. He reminds us that yes, the years go on but disease is what makes us older and much disease is preventable.
He also reminds us that all of our life experiences are stored in our cells and there What a treasure of a book! He also reminds us that all of our life experiences are stored in our cells and there are many ways to bring healing and restoration to old "tapes", etc. I have made two resolutions I will act on when we return home. Don't know just how they will coincide but determined to begin. I have chapters lined up but need to be serious about both these matters.
May 14, Josh rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. Shelves: booksread. Deepak Chopra offers us nothing new in this book. He simply reinforces practical ideals for living a long, healthy life, body and soul. Great book to read and discuss. Jun 15, Pawan rated it really liked it. This is slightly a different type of self-help book where he is specifically dealing with the concept of aging of human body and how we can have better control over it.
He has used research results from various fields as well as examples of societies from all over the world to show that aging process is not same for everybody. In some societies, life-style helps people to age better and people remain active till very old age where as in some other cultures it is quite opposite. His thoughts are that we human beings should be aware of our own aging process and being in touch with our own self and making some slight adjustments to our life-style itself can improve our health and help us to age better.
The techniques that he has mentioned are very simple to follow and practice. He also discusses on how life of human beings is not one life but a combination of millions of cells which are taking birth and dying all the time in the human body.
His idea is that our own thoughts can make these cells sick or healthy making their life small or large thereby increasing the age of human body itself. As is with most of the popular self-help books, narrative style makes a lot of difference. If the author can make things look simpler to do and execute and can relate to the common problems people face, people will come back to read and will like the book. In this aspect, the author has done a good job here. The parts in the book where he uses advanced concepts of physics like quantum mechanics and entropy baffled me and I really could not relate to those concepts.
It almost looked like a desperate attempt to relate psychological concepts to physical sciences which is probably not required.
