I seem to be going through a series of books dealing with serious topics through humor. Is this a trend or is it something more personal?

This book is written about achieving spiritual optimism but I think it applies to all facets of life – relationships, careers, hobbies, everything.

As I contemplate what to say in this review, it occurs to me that perhaps there is nothing ‘new’ or ‘enlightening’ in the ideas conveyed in this book but Deepak Chopra has a new way of presenting the ideas that feels fresh. For example, rather then being stuck in a rut, he describes it as an addiction to the past. Same idea but by looking at it differently if feels different.

A little ‘new-agey’ but a quick read that will leave you feeling better then when you started.

I can always count on Deepak to have some good words and insights to help on my path. The title was weird and almost turned me off but I'm glad I read it. He gives a well-worded reason to meditate toward the end of the book. ( )
