To me, the subtitle, "The Soul's Journey into the Mystery of Mysteries," is indicative of where you need to be spiritually and mentally in order to fully appreciate the enlightenment that unfolds before you as you proceed from chapter to chapter. You need to be on a "journey" towards discovering the true essence of the purpose for your life.
If there is a force that binds the nucleus of an atom together to create "you" and everything in existence, surely there is a purpose for your life.
In this book, Dr. Chopra plays the role of "help-mate" by taking his knowledge of religion, quantum physics, and neuroscience to help you on your journey. If you are truly on a journey towards discovering the true essence of the purpose for your life, this book is a "must read."
Knowledge is power, reading is fundamental, and life is a journey. Enjoy this book and your journey.

Should be: How To Know Deepak.
They say the brain is hardwired to believe in God. Actually, we believe in God due to habit, not evidence, not reason, not choice. We still live in a stupid society that thinks 'God', a total unknown mysterious piece of squish, is the answer to hard questions like 'Who am I? How did I get here? What is the meaning of life? Is there life after death?' This is answering the unknown with the unknown and is seriously bogus logic. I could have written a book 'How To Know Unicorns' and could have used the same exact logic as Deepak Chopra who hides his Hindu based malarky behind his multitude of degrees and titles. Ayurveda, his Hindu style medicine promises practitioners of life 200, 300 or more years. In fact, Deepak informs us elsewhere, that the human body actually has no termination date, no end except that people eat wrong, exercize wrong. And this is science? Had Deepak Chopra, a supposedly educated man ever heard of Telemeres? In The Chicken Soup series, an essay by Deepak Chopra about his daughter informs us with a serious tone that Hindu idols actually drink milk! What a miracle! What malarky! This book is another of his con-games designed with only one purpose in mind. Make lotsa lotsa money and build mega mega empire, and gain biga biga influence so you can appear at $25,000 or more a hit on talk shows, which also promote your books! Let's get one thing clear, Mr. Deepak Chopra like other charlatans from India like Mahesh Maharishi Yogi and Bhagwan Sri Rajneesh is no fool. These guys know that Americans are sick and tired of Xian hogwash. But do they replace it with education, freethought and reason? No they replace fundamentalist claptrap with either New Ager, or Old Age superstitions. Science education, meanwhile in the good ol' USA lags behind every developed country in the world, and falls far behind many developing nations. Go ahead and buy this book and his others and pay for his vacation to San Tropez, while impoverishing yourself, and filling your head with pleasant sounding drivel. This is all a pipe dream. Let's see if Mr. Chopra lives beyond 100, much less 200, or 300 as he ought to if his 'divine' principles had any validity. But then he knows his critics won't be around either 100 years from now.

Notice this book is a "miniature"!
Seriously, this tiny book is smaller than the palm of your hand. As for the content, I didn't find it interesting or helpful. Dr. Chopra is a prolific writer, but I have yet to find much substance in his pretty words.
