The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success:
A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams
If you are considering a book by Deepak Chopra, you probably already have some affinity with the sort of message he is conveying.
Reviews of this book can range from “Life changing!” and “Stunning!” to “This new-age drivel makes me sick….”
Deepak Chopra is in fact a respected author of 70 books with 21 New York Times bestsellers. Originally a doctor in mainstream medicine he was no lightweight, with teaching experience at Harvard, Boston and Tufts Universities and a position as Chief of Staff at the Boston Regional Medical Centre. In the early 1980s, he became involved in the TM Movement and turned to Ayurvedic and alternative medicine. Since then, he has been an in-demand speaker and commentator on the spiritual and personal development, alternative health, and “how to be a success” circuits.
While containing some New-Age ideas, with some not unlike those outlined in far less credible books such as The Secret, these spiritual laws are generally pretty good common-sense ideas and well worth a read for their generally gentle course to achieving one’s potential.
However, although the book is only 128 pages, it is not necessarily an easy read. Whether Mr Chopra’s writing style is not as easy as it appears to be at first glance, or the ideas that he propounds need frequent putting aside so that they can be contemplated at leisure, it is probably not 128 pages you will breeze through.
But it’s definitely worth making the effort.
