Every now and then I pick up a book to motivate me to take better care of myself. I can never go wrong when I pick up a Chopra book. His books look at both the mind and body and steer me towards spirituality and an "all things in moderation" lifestyle. I trust his information and his sincerity in urging us to live a more healthy life.

Deepak Chopra's latest book gives me a 'waking up' experience. No one understands the body/mind/spirit connection quite like Deepak and he suggests that to reverse aging and grow younger (for vanity or health or energy reasons) is part of the potential we all have within us. 'Whether you choose to activate this choice and implement this possibility is up to you.' The book is easily divided up into a 10-step program you may wish to commit to over a 10-week period.

I had the pleasure of meeting (and having my picture taken with) Dr. Deepak Chopra at a presentation he delivered as part of the promotional tour for this book. His message is nothing short of transformational! After hearing the lecture and reading the book, I finally found the courage and inspiration to finish my own book titled, Rat Race Relaxer: Your Potential & The Maze of Life. I enjoyed Grow Younger, Live Longer so much I even included it in my book's suggested reading list.

I have regularly practiced Transcendental Meditation (TM) for a number of years, having originally become interested in it through one of Dr. Chopra's first books. I have found the practice to be a helpful one, and regularly recommend it to others. I have also experienced Ayurvedic health treatments and have read about the practice. As a result, I always look forward to reading Dr. Chopra's new books. Grow Younger, Live Longer is an update on Ageless Body, Timeless Mind. The authors describe the Ayurvedic principles (practiced in India for many hundreds of years) of self-healing in a more detailed and understandable way than in any of Dr. Chopra's earlier books. Long-time practitioners of Transcendental Meditation will find little new in the book. Those who do not meditate now will find the book an easy, comfortable way to begin mind-body integration in ways that will probably help physiological and psychological health. The authors argue that by forming ten new habits (by following the recommended practices for at least 10 weeks), you can 'reset your Biostat (your biological or functional, age) up to fifteen years younger than your chronological age.' Your Biostat is determined by various measures of your body's functioning, as compared to the average of people of the same sex and age. That point is not proven, however, in the text of the book. Many references care made in the notes. I am aware of studies done by practitioners of Transcendental Meditation that show such effects, which may be part of what the claim is based on. Some scientists have criticized the studies for potential bias because practitioners conducted almost all of the studies. The authors are not recommending TM, but rather other versions of meditation. Some nutritional and relationship studies have shown reversals of such biological markers. You are encouraged to psychologically reframe aging to 'an opportunity for greater wisdom, love, creativity, meaning, joy, and increased mental and physical capacity.' 'The real purpose of the book is to remind you, the reader, that this deeper reality, the domain of pure potentiality of spirit, is who you really are.' 'To know a person's body in the future, examine their experiences now.' This sort of writing will remind you that Dr. Chopra likes to use Quantum physics as a metaphor for explaining the potential benefits of spiritual practices. The ten steps are as follows: 1. Change Your Perceptions. 2. Take Deep Rest. 3. Eat Healthy Food. 4. Take Nutritional Supplements. 5. Enhance Mind/Body Integration. 6. Exercise. 7. Eliminate Toxins. 8. Practice Flexibility and Creativity in Your Consciousness. 9. Encourage and Experience Love. 10. Keep a Youthful Mind. Each step comes with three recommendations. I also found much more scientific explanation here than in his earlier books about why these changes should be helpful. These were most detailed in the nutrition and exercise sections. The recommendations were explained in enough detail that I think that most people could understand and follow them. You will also find at least half of these food, water, and exercise recommendations in the better health books. The emphasis on spiritual and pscyhological practices is much stronger here. A good book on the importance of love from the scientific perspective is Dr. Dean Ornish's Love and Survival. The book also ends with a long section of vegetarian recipes from various cuisines (Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, French, American, and Middle Eastern) for seven sample menus. These have fairly extensive lists of ingredients, and you may need to buy some provisions you don't have now. Tamari sauce is a good example of something that is not present in many American larders. This book will probably be most appealing to a retired person who finds her- or himself feeling disconnected from a meaningful purpose. The practices here would be most helpful in that situation, and

She pads around camp quietly. Her violet eyes look around for a threat or a new comer. She is nervous, as it is Reigns first time leaving camp alone. Or leaving camp at all.
