I love this book. Simple but by no means shallow, this book effectively takes you along the Buddha's journey from birth to enlightenment. It's a history lesson and novel combined. Chopra's storytelling is vivid and engaging. This is really not a book for scholars or Buddhists but for all people to read and enjoy. It answers the questions, Who was the Buddha and what happened to this young man that I should care? Deepak Chopra's book is an entertaining voyage into the essence of awakening without confusing translations and doctrine based studies. It stirs the heart gladly.
