A beautiful story told by Deepak & his brother. I enjoyed discovering Sanjiv. Many moments of joy, intrigue and validation for me. From the get go Deepak establishes that he's a democrat and definitely paid off to tout their story no matter what. That became annoying even at the end of the book having to speak about global warming and that "this country is more anti-immigrant that I ever remember." I'm not sure where Deepak got that from when I started to work at the hospital 20yrs ago I was the only "brownie" as he put it. Today more than 1/2 the staff I work with daily are non Americans. 25yrs ago when I went to immigration the only persons in the room was my husband and I, 10 yrs later it was hundreds just here submitting their papers. At times I found Deepak to be too agenda driven. None the less it's a great read with a lot of great insight and stories from both brothers and I enjoyed it!

This is a wonderful read - told in alternate chapters by Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra it reveals much about their upbringing in India and their early careers in the USA. While I enjoyed the chapters by Deepak Chopra more than his brother's they relate how they assimilated into American culture and particularly western medicine. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad. Family is so important to south Asians, and the pursuit of a good education. Americans can learn a great deal from these two brothers about health, pursuit of happiness, treatment of others no matter their cultural or religious differences and the strength of family.
