Hello all!

 

I am new to these boards but am currently interested in reading a book by Deepak Chopra. Can anyone recommend a good book for a newbie??

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Deepak Chopra

gotjack28 -- if you like Chropra,  I suggest you snoop around some of the threads on this board.  There are several lists of books that have been meaningful or just of interest to a number of people for a variety of reasons.   I suspect that you will find one or more that would appeal as an upcoming read for yourself.

Re: Deepak Chopra

Thanks! I was browsing my local stores selection and although they all seemed to be an interesting read I didn't want to start with something 'heavy' and turn myself off.

Re: Deepak Chopra

I hav enever read one of his books, but have read of him and his ideas for years.  I am favorably impressed so I probably should bite the bullet and download an ebook!  I was most impressed by his reported interaction with Michael Jackson - refused to prescribe mood altering meds, but offered to walk with him on his journey.  I thought that was an ethical stance in a context where so many others make other devastating choices.
