Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Returning to the themes of alchemy and wizardry he introduced in The Return of Merlin (LJ 7/95), perennially popular author Chopra here articulates a 20-step guide for discovering the wizard within and taking control of the spiritual journey of one's life. Beginning with the proclamation that the omniscient wizard is within all of us, Chopra uses a weird and eclectic combination of Zen koan, Jungian analysis, Hindu mythology, and alchemy to lead seekers in the way of the wizard. Chopra's thinking and writing is replete with the fuzzy mysticism and superficial spirituality that characterize his other works. Although Chopra's faithful followers will likely demand copies, the book is not recommended.

Chopra is big. His message about attaining joy and fulfillment by recognizing the mind-body connection has struck a chord that's reverberated beyond New Agers into the general public. Still, he basically has only one message, leaving him no choice but to try to jazz it up with each successive book. Recently, Chopra ventured into the world of fiction with mixed results. This time, he blends a bit of folklore into his "lessons" about 20 principles for reintroducing magic into one's life. Invoking the Camelot legends and using Arthur and Merlin (also the focus of his novel, "The Return of Merlin" [Je 1 & 15 95]) as metaphors for the eternal seeker and inner wisdom, Chopra gives readers the tools to find the enchantment in their own lives. He did this succinctly and plainly in his recent best-seller, "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success" (1995); here, unfortunately, the jaunt through Camelot obscures the basic message rather than enhancing it. Nevertheless, Chopra is a brand name by now--demand will be heavy.

I read this book when I began studying magicks and other pagan/occult matters. What I found inside this book truely changed my life and outlook on things. I read this as often as I can and always learn new things and to see things differently...I highly highly recommend this book to everyone of every religion and belief system.In this book the ways the author explains follore lessons and intergrates it into real life is remarkable and everyone can learn from it. I myself have again found my innocence....

Sadly, Chopra needs to spend some time in a physics class before he's qualified to make any pronouncements about the nature of humanity or the universe.
