This only gets 1 star because zero isn't allowed.

I can only assume that this has over 4 stars on average because the typical person who seeks this book out is already prone to believing the nonsense within.

I am a scientist, with a PhD in Materials Science and plenty of quantum mechanics in my background (though obviously, I don't know it anywhere near as well as a dedicated physicist in the area w

Deepak Chopra is an endocrinologist who starts doubting the supremacy of the western approach to medicine. That doesn’t mean he denies his training altogether. But he cannot forget his Indian roots, either. In fact, when he finds out that mind and body are able to cure a person if they work together, or kill her if they work against each other, he returns to the traditional Indian medical approach that they call Ayurveda.

Ayurveda means “the knowledge for long life” in Sanskrit. Because it com

A super book that explains the science behind the seemingly magical ability to heal yourself with your mind, your thoughts and feelings. Truly insprirational reading. If you're into science, spirituality, or both, you will very much enjoy this book. If you're struggling with a desease, this line of thought is definately worth a try. Lots of case studies inclulded.

Whoa! There is so much bullshit in here! Don't know where to start. If you think you have learned something from this book, write one or two things down and ask a local expert about the subject. Then tell him what you 'learned' in this book about it, prepare to be laughed at!

Deepak Chopra’s book, long in the tooth now as a passing fad – is interesting for me in what it says about human psychology, especially Americans. And that is, a desperate need to animate their spiritual selves now vacated in a high tech, capitalistic world that increasingly dominates them. Chopra fills that need with a New Age mix of Eastern mysticism, pseudo-science, junk science, and outright snake oil. He uses enough (far too much) science jargon to make those who live in our “science enviro ...more

Deepak Chopra's books are interesting. Some of the points he makes stays with the reader.

I abandoned this book after about 100 pages, it's just too technical.

This was a great book. It really is fascinating how our bodies naturally rejuvenate and heal. We have a new liver every 6 weeks; how neat is that! Our minds are such powerful tools and I believe influence our bodies... there is a disconnection and connection between the two and the way we think about things, like illness, the more we will see it in our lives. It's like the person who wakes up in the morning and stubs their toe, then spills their morning coffee, and the person starts focusing on ...more

I'll preface this review by telling you that I have a bone spur on my left heel, and related plantar fasciitis, and I've had pain when walking/running for the better part of this last year. I have tried stretching, and some very expensive prescription orthotic inserts. I have been very frustrated with how slow the healing process has been. My husband loaned me this book as a possible alternative solution.

Deepak Chopra may be commonly known as more of a "woo woo" spiritual author, but he is also

Recommends it for: Patients
n this book, Deepak Chopra narrates about the killer disease "Cancer/Tumor" and how it affects the people's perception about the world once they are caught by this deadly disease. He aims at shifting the mind of the reader, so they can believe that any chronic illness in their body can be healed. Completely, without traces.

He narrates about the peculiar cases, where some patients had banished this deadly disease from their body miraculously. He initiates this powerful belief in the reader's mind

I gave this book 5 stars because of my curiosity to explore "Quantum Physics" and its relationship with human body. Deepak Chopra is a good writer but unfortunately he fails to convey his message to his audience. I think this book would have been well understood if 'Quantum Theory' had practical grounds. The mystery attached to neuropeptides remains shrouded. A deep research put forwarding consolidated facts and proofs is required. Otherwise, its pure hypothesis.

Inspirational, mind expanding and really interesting look at the boundary between the body and the mind. For anyone who has experienced the limitations of modern medicine, this is a great exploration of what where medicine finishes and the power of spirituality and the quantum universe picks up.

"The vital issue is not how to win the war but how to keep peace in the first place."

Ive never been disappointed with a book by Deepak Chopra and the worst thing I can say about this one is that it's way too short.

This was my first experience reading a book of Deepak Chopra's and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I appreciate that Chopra has a medical background in endocrinology as well as Ayruveda. It made for a very interesting interplay between Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and attempting to find a balance between the two. What I liked most was that there was never an attempt to discredit one field of medicine, but rather a focus on using both as a means of rounding each other out. Th ...more

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you are correct. Quantum healing, a book about the power of the mind and the ability it has to heal. At many points I found the book boring and repetitive, thus the length of time it took me to finish the final two chapters. The book was written in 1989 and many of the examples, in my opinion, were dated; though each chapter did include an update entitled "expanding the topic" to update the research and information. It takes reading to the second to ...more

La palabra "Cuántica" es utilizada aquí de manera arbitraria. Se usa para identificar un mecanismo que no está completamente comprendido y que no es particularmente abordable por la lógica diaria o el sentido común. En lugar de "Curación Cuántica" este libro debería titularse por ejemplo "Medicina Mente-Cuerpo".

El hecho de que mientras una quasi-partícula se desplaza en el espacio, la probabilidad de encontrarla en diferentes sitios al mismo tiempo es no-zero, se malinterpreta comunmente por 'ub

Fascinating. As the title implies, Dr. Chopra explores the frontiers of the mind/body with the knowledge and limitations of today's medical world and the world of physics, as well as the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda. He explores what is known and not known of people who have spontaneously healed from their terminal ailments. He does this with simplicity, clarity and sincerity. If I wasn't convinced of the many benefits of meditation, I am now.

Dr. Chopra states that much of his time is spent ta

Every now and then, I have an attack of optimism that convinces me that now, at long last, I'll have time to spend an hour or so every day improving my Spanish skills. The reality is, that'll happen when I retire from my day job--at which point I'll no longer need to have conversations with Spanish-speaking families.

But lack of time is not really what bogged me down in reading Quantum Healing. It was the repetition of the same idea, over and over again--basically, a rather new-age version of "mi

Recommends it for: spiritually aware people, especially physicians
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I do wish he would have referenced his assertions so that more research could be done by the reader, however. I also found that some of the assertions were loosely strung together and were not the easiest to follow. I do appreciate any effort to break through into the mystery of this realm of "quantum healing" and appreciate the opportunity to read more about Dr. Chopra's beliefs about it. The one failing of the viewpoint that Doctor Chopra takes in this book, in my ...more

Though I can't swear by the "science" on this subject, I can state that Deepak Chopra explains his take on the mind/body medical relationship very simply and clearly. I find it difficult to accept any of the "experts" in this field as having guessed any better than their peers, but authors like Chopra and Dr. Lewis Mel-Madrona are definitely easier for we novices to understand. The anecdotal stories by both authors make the books (Any of Mel-Madrona's "Coyote" books!) wonderfully worthwhile and ...more

So many examples from scientific and other experiments in this book show that there is much more to life than the physical body. Our belief (whatever that is and wherever it is located) affects our physical body.
Today, after so many books have been written and so many discoveries have been made, Quantum Healing appears very basic and 'old news'. But it is still fascinating to read about the grown elephant who is tied up with a flimsy rope. Because he had learned as a young elephant that the rop

This book is totally mind expanding.  It goes into the quantum physics of healing.  Ultimately Deepak means that the more bliss we are able to experience on a daily basis, the more we increase our health and our chances for doing "the quantum leap" ie going from being ill into complete health.  It is the most inspirational and motivational book on why it is so important for us all to meditate on a regular basis.  Fascinating read.

Everybody needs to learn about Quantum Physics. It should be taught in high school along with chemistry and biology. Deepak Chopra is a wonderful teacher of our times. In simple language he explains how scientifically we are all One. He brings proves personal power with physical facts. Although his works would fall into the woo woo shelf, he would be the most down to earth author on the shelf.
