The reader begins with an overview of issues surrounding fatigue in our modern world and then takes a dosha quiz to determine their "type" according to Ayurvedic medicine. Having read several books on the subject of the Ayurvedic philosophy, I have to say that this was the best quiz to determine dosha I have seen thus far. Subsequent chapters have various recommendations for specific doshas when applicable. Dr. Chopra centers his text on several "Primary Energy Principles" which are statements emphasizing the connection of the body/mind and the fact that we derive our energy from the abundant energy resources of nature; lack of energy indicates an imbalance or block in this flow.
As with any Ayurvedic resource, the recommendations for overcoming fatigue are incredibly holistic. Beginning with key principles surrounding diet (by dosha) and good digestion, Dr. Chopra also encompasses issues of stress reduction (using breathing meditation, yoga postures, alternate nostril breathing exercises, and self-massage), tapping into the natural rhythms of the day (principles of good sleep, limiting high-focus or stimulating activities after dinner and before bed, getting fresh air and sunshine, getting exercise with recommendations by dosha), and paying attention not only to the health of the physical environment surrounding you but also of your mental and spiritual well-being. I found this last chapter to be particularly profound as I know many people who take to heart a "fitness plan" and never stop to examine why they do not experience passion or joy in their personal pursuits; they have stopped growing as people and the stagnation affects their bodies in profound ways despite their surface "care" of it.
If fatigue is an issue for you (is it not an issue for anyone?), this book is a recommended purchase as you will refer to it again and again as you seek to regain health and vitality in your everyday life.
Much of a person's feeling of fatigue often starts with the mind, and Chopra gives wonderful advice in overcoming that obstacle. He gives valuable advice on how to reduce stress, and in the process, much of our common maladies should disappear.
When we feel energized, good things usually happen. We're more productive, more creative, and much more fun to hang out with. Those who haven't read this book, who constantly harp on their travails & in the process, bring everyone around them down, would be well-advised to pick up this wonderful book and follow the instructions carefully. You'll thank the good Doctor later.
