5.0 out of 5 stars A shift in perspective 27 Sep 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is exciting as it marries scientific research with ancient wisdom. To some people, who have had no contact with ancient wisdom, that could be irrelevant and it is the scientific approach that will grab them. To science-only enthusiasts it will maybe open their minds to new thoughts on a very insiduous and deep-set attitude on the whole question of ageing. To people who are familiar with ancient wisdom it will come as no surprise that we have the inner power to make all sorts of changes to our life by taking up the "ability to respond" i.e.responsability for our lives. I should love all OAPs to be presented with this book at Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars To understand your immortal nature... 18 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
In this wonderful book (a must!), Deepak Chopra explains in a very understandable way and from A to Z, the difference between growing old and growing sick, being the last one, the accepted condition in our Western cultures for anyone over 45 years old, but amazingly, this does not have to be... it's actually a matter of awareness! biological age depends on psychological age he says, implying that knowledge of true nature is essential to overcome the fear and sorrow feelings that are really responsible for our cells' inability at a certain point of age (beginning at around 30 years old) to rejuvenate themselves; "the habit of fear has sunk so deep that the body remembers to carry it out, even when the mind is resisting with all its might".

We are not these bodies, but the thoughts that create it and those ones come from the Field... and it is right here where this book grows interesting; unity is what we should always aim for. Our physical world and our inner world (quantum) are closely related, forming the unity that gives consistency to the world we perceive, but perception is reality and ours is conditioned to think we are trapped in time and space so, we grow old and die because we expect that. We interpret that as the end, while it is really transformation. The moment we understand that the nature of our awareness is timeless, this process of growing old can stop and even reverse. It's our unique capacity of consciousness among all living creatures, which gives us this possibility.

After reading this book, I can also see, that in a couple hundred years from now, many aspects of our Western, modern medicine, will be seen as not very different to that from the middle ages in our eyes today... a wonderful read that will give you a completely different view of life, death, health, sickness, aging, healing and eternity. A tool, more than a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most important book I've ever read! 30 Dec 2010
By Sparkyb
Format:Paperback
This marvellous book has inspired me, at the deepest level (down to the DNA of every cell in my body), to understand that my mind is in danger of accepting the normal ageing process but that there is an alternative. Simply think and act younger and, whilst I won't live eternally, at least I'll lead a more active and fulfilling life. I was particularly impressed by the information about the group of people from an old people's home who commenced a regime of weight training and noticeably increased their muscle mass in a short period of time. They were aged from 87 to 94!

I'm a golf pro who was in danger of accepting that my game was going downhill and that it was 'par for the course' as I was nearing my 60th birthday. A few months after reading the book I'm enjoying better ball stricking and better scores thanks to my new attitude.

There are so many jewels of information in this book that they are too many to list here. Just buy it, read it with an open mind and you will be as impressed as me, I'm sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forward to a fabulous old age! 11 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book considers human ageing as an aspect over which we have much positive (and negative)control. Revelations of extensive research into mental and physical aging processes, and the positive outcomes of intervention on the simplest of levels argue strongly that we all have the power to grow wise, healthy, strong and respected.
I have enjoyed this book tremendously. Readable, to the point and practical, there is much to absorb yet so little to do in a real sense. I was already looking forward to a ripe old age, now I feel empowered to develop the path to a fabulous old age!

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring book on mind & body 31 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
An inspiring book on mind & body When I first read the book, I could not put it down. My only adverse comments are that the brilliant supporting researches which are quoted in the book could have been referenced similar to a research publication. Then it could gain creditibility with the medical and scientific community. Neverthless it is a great book for liberating people abilities. Well written and a joy to read. --This text refers to the paperback edition of this title

This book is a revelation. It contains all the info, as up to date as it could be at the time of writing, about the mind/body and is based on relevant research. It is not a spiritual book as such because it deals with facts (in the main) but it brings together science and 'spiritual' ideas in a way that should be totally acceptable to those who do not consider themselves on a 'spiritual' path.

Read and take on board this information and you will not be disappointed. All of my family and friends will get a copy for Xmas. 10 STARS.
