Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Chopras present some life lessons through a dog's point of view in a charming new book. As Deepak's grandson Gotham engages the neighbor's dog in a blissful game of fetch, Deepak sagely observes: "What we witnessed is play and innocence at its best," or, as Gotham put it: "Dogs innately understand not just the desire for play but also the need." Chopra takes us on a series of events affecting the Chopra households, including a hilarious cross-country plane trip with an untranquilized dog, an expensive trip to Italy, and the events surrounding an elderly relative's grave illness. Along the way, we learn the valuable lessons that man's best friend can teach us: "dogs-like the universe-don't hold grudges. They forgive and evolve." The younger Chopra even relates an incident in which his dog was a better judge of character than he was. The one sour note is a lengthy detour on Michael Jackson, whose death occurs while Gotham is on a bike trip in Italy, contributing little to the book. That aside, this glimpse into the softer side of the Chopra family should significantly expand the family's fan base.

From Booklist

Framed as a series of vignettes about the family dogs Nicholas and Cleo, Gotham Chopra’s book is more about life as the son of famed doctor and spiritualist Deepak Chopra than it is a dog story. While Nicholas and neurotic Cleo are clearly important characters in Gotham’s life, the best parts of this book are made up of his conversations with his father while his mother was on an extended solo trip to India. Gotham, a foreign correspondent, is very different than his father, and his often-irreverent take on the famous Deepak offers a refreshingly frank perspective on a man many revere. Dog lovers may be disappointed by the lack of dog-focus, but those interested in learning what being Deepak’s son has been all about will find plenty to satisfy their curiosity. --Jessica Moyer

I don't have a dog in my life right now, but this book makes me want one! Such sweet stories, father and son conversations, life lessons shared and philosophies considered. It's about the big picture, and the beautiful little details that make up our daily lives. You'll feel like you're one of the family, walking along and eavesdropping on precious moments. We're kindred spirits, people and pets, experiencing, learning from one another, growing together. "Walking Wisdom" is a wonderful gift. Thanks, Gotham!

GOTHAM IS HILLARIOUS ! I bought this wisdom book to read between novels. Thought it would be intellectual, ho hum and slow moving. I couldn't put it down.Gotham hooks you with the way he words every sentence and phrase and has a special style that combines excitement, humor, and in between this is what is so much needed today....wisdom and the opportunity for us all (evolved or not) to look at ourselves and our worlds...to know it was (and is) okay to be imperfect but we all can also change. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. More Gotham Please! Strong emphasis on how to raise a kid in todays world, how to love your family members even if they are different from you. Has the ability to poke fun at God's vice president, Depak Chopra (his father), without offending. GET IT.

If you are a Deepak fan then this is really a great read as it gives insight into the private life of this Teacher of Life... from his son, Gotham's perspective. If you are a dog lover, then you will appreciate Gotham's as well as his entire family's TLC of their dog, Cleo. These are definitely good, decent people on planet Earth. Plus Gotham has a wit to his writing that keeps it all moving to the point that you know it will all come to an end but hope for a sequel.

I had much fun reading this book in kindle version. I created another image of Deepak Chopra and your fabulous family after reading the book. I felt closer to them even living so far away (Brazil). Family Chopra have all my love and respect. Thanks to Gotham for sharing these gifts (histories) with us.
