I read the sample and liked it. But I was disappointed because I kept waiting to get to the good part, that never really came. The book really did not get to the point on how to reinvent yourself specifically. It is really not a how to book. It was filled with alot of general knowledge, and other peoples personal stories, but i did not find it helpful.

    Reconnecting with the Soul

    This book delivers both more than I expected, yet less than I had hoped for. After reading the introduction, I was expecting much more of a scientific-spiritual bridge between cellular biology and medicine on the one hand and the influence of consciousness and the soul on the body. But in the end, Dr. Chopra focused on the latter.

    The book does contain valuable information, mind you, combining the deep human understanding of a wise old family doctor with the spiritual guidance of a mystic. The problem is that the gems are somewhat buried in a plethora of semi-relevant anecdotes and case studies showing how our consciousness can change physical processes. I think it is fair to say that this book is a synthesis of many of Chopra's books over the last twenty years, but lacks the brilliance and insight of his lectures.


    In essence the book is about rediscovering the emotional and spiritual compass in ourselves that can make life a joyous, creative expansion of learning and being all that we can. That compass is the "still small voice" of our soul. This is certainly an important message for our time. Our soul not only guides us, if we listen, but helps nourish our body with life force. Dr. Chopra points out the many and myriad ways we distract ourselves and drown out its messages and starve the body and spirit of real nourishment.

    Depending on where one is in one's journey, therefore, the book can be a real revelation or an articulate restatement of things he has already written and we have already read. From an author as penetrating and prolific as Deepak Chopra, I was hoping for more of a breakthrough book; a unified field theory of the spiritual and the material. There are hints of it here, but room for much more.

    Worth Reading

    This book is motivating and inspiring. The message provides access to new ways of thinking about who we are as our "self" and how we respond to our world. It begins the process of breaking down already beliefs about who we think we are and insightful ways of recreating that "self" we think we know.

    Inspiring

    A good but difficult read. I found it to be inspiring and insightful though boring at times.
