It was a pleasant surprise that all the recipes in this book were vegetarian and very close to vegan. Usually the only non-vegan thing was a teaspoon or two of ghee - easily replaced by oil or Earth Balance or omitted completely.

Interesting book about body-mind connection. Start with choosing your biological age (within 15 years) and as your mind sets on that number, you are making healthier choices with exercise-nutrition-mindfulness-meditation. Nothing outrageous in this book, a good read, and you'll find yourself being more mindful about your health as you read it.

Eat healthier. Drink more water. Get more sleep. Exercise more. For the most part the ideas presented are common sense. Eliminate toxins from your body, mind and soul. Make love the most important thing in your life. Maintain a youthful mind. Dr. Chopra presents his ideas as 10 practical steps and the first step is probably the only one that will stretch your imagination. I found it interesting. He shows us the Vedic Seers idea of the "subtle" body. "At a quantum level: a field of energy, transf ...more

Nice read. Excellent points.I do agree with the author that one of the most profound ways to reverse aging is a spiritual one. The only people who have lived for 100s of years are the seers. When we stop abusing our body-mind and soul we never decay.If you are spiritually inclined and consider your body a temple to house your soul then this book is for you.
One error in the book that I hope Dr. Chopra corrects is on page 223 he says the second yoga is Dwarpa yuga, it is Treta that is the second y

I have a few Deepak Chopra books and find them all to be very interesting and thoughtful and full of great ideas. I haven't put a lot of his ideas to practice on a regular basis (old habits die hard) but he's writing from a unique perspective of a scholar, a scientist and a spiritualist combined- which I tend to have most faith in that combo. It's a good 'mix' of these elements. You cannot have faith of spirituality without belief in Science and vice/versa (in my opinion)I believe we all have mo ...more

I really love this book, but I've been "reading" it for a long time, swearing I wouldn't consider it completed until I could follow all of the suggestions offered (which all sound incredibily healthy and relaxing), but I just have not been able to follow through (which is why it's only getting 3 stars instead of my typical 4 stars for a book I love). I tend to get stuck trying to find time for 20 minutes of meditation twice a day - in my heart I really want to do it - in reality I have failed mi

This was an excellent book abundant in many health boosting advice which I found myself agreeing with for the majority of the book

Deepak teaches us to look at our health beyond just physically ... But beyond emotionally and spirituality too which is key in my opinion

I'd recommend this book to anyone in improving your health whether your a novice or pro in the field - as your true human potential health wise is discussed in detail and will open to you more genuine ideas which might have not cons

12/16/08: My baby sis Amber gave this to me for my 40th birthday. Should I have been offended? ;) I'm already well past 41 now so I think I better get going on it soon. I realize anyone who knows me personally is going to be shocked that I've never read it before, but my youthful look and feel is just organic. (I so wish you all could hear me laughing out loud at myself after typing that sentence! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)

It's always good to take a break and concentrate one's reading on something about self-improvement and this work by Deepak Chopra fills the bill. It leads one to think more deeply about life in general and one's own life. Along the way it gives 10 steps to reverse aging, and who doesn't want that? Chopra discusses thinking, eating, nutrition, sleeping, and much more, all with a view to looking and feeling 10 years younger. Interesting.

Recommends it for: Anyone who is into holistic and spiritual care. Not only Western thoughts and medicine.
Recommended to Adriana by:
It all starts with our mindset does it not? To be younger we have to know we are not old. That we are indeed young. That our body will take care of us if we take care of it. And then after thinking it, we must be it. Action follows thought. There is a lot of ogic in this book, as well as a lot of new ideas. Chopra shares 9 useful tips with us and advises us not just in a practical manner but in a spiritual one as well.

"Grow Younger Live Longer" starts with the mind set of thinking and acting younger. From this foundation Chopra builds in nine other useful tips. Deepak’s advise as you might expect is practical and spiritual. The book is well written, easy to understand and encouraging. It all starts with the statement "my biostat is set at a health xx years of age. I look and feel xx years old. I was both educated and entertained by this book.

mi incuriosiva il titolo "Mente giovane corpo intelligente" e ne ho dedotto che fosse in assoluto la cosa migliore del libro, che prevede di metterci solo due ore prima di andare a letto, tra massaggi con oli essenziali, bagni rilassanti con musica e candele più tisane varie, il tutto da fare non più tardi delle nove mezza, eh già ma se io riuscissi ad andare a dormire prima delle nove mezza invece che arrivare a casa a quell'ora non sarei certamente stressata, comunque, andiamo avanti.

Recommends it for: anyone
A fascinating approach to anti-aging, it focuses on spirituality and life force energy, tapping into it, and having a young and flexible outlook on life. It also has some wonderful recipes in the back (the hummos is to die for, as my husband can attest!) Overall very inspiring, can't wait to read more of Chopra's work.

With Deepak Chopra I'm usually able to use about 50% of what I read and can discard the other 50% without compunction. That's how I'm reading this book. I enjoy the notion of resetting my biostat to the age I choose--and when I read Chopra's recommendations, almost believe I can do it.

Amazingly, I think I do, or at least attempt to, 90% of this. It's pretty much common sense, except for a few oddities. It's the basics for living a healthy and happy life with some mystic mojo thrown in for good measure.
Many interesting chapters - a ten step program to better health. Last 60 pages are recipes, so was finished as they are mainly oriental and different kinds of herbs and spices. Good book to have on your shelf for vitamin reference.

Nothing I really didn't know that was in here. It still makes for an interesting read though, and a fast one at that.
