If you are a fan of "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success" then you will LOVE Deepak's new book, The Ultimate Happiness Prescription! It's the same kind of format: accessible, practical wisdom to use every day of your life. Each chapter is one of the seven keys to joy and enlightenment. You will want to memorize them! The insights are profound, and simply life-changing. This is the book we have been waiting for from Deepak, the one we will read over and over again and cherish each time! I am going to get several copies to give as holiday gifts this year.

I received this as a gift from my mom one Christmas and didn't have to get further than the title before I exclaimed "Oh GAG" and tossed it aside. Yeah, kind of bratty response, but the fact of the matter is that people who need this book the most are going to be the most turned off by it at first glance.

I disagree with the book's description. I didn't desire happiness, at least as it is commonly defined. I never asked for everything to be all puppies and dandelions, I didn't want to go through life with a silly grin on my face. I just wanted to get up in the morning looking forward to the day for a change.

Luckily, I ended up picking up The Happiness Prescription again a few months later and giving it a chance. The book isn't about forcing yourself to stay positive or smiling when you just don't feel like it. It cuts through the cheesy BS that is so often spouted by motivational authors, and gives you helpful guidelines towards creating a more fulfilling life.

I can only speak to my experience, and as someone who struggled with long-term depression, I think this book is a great place to start. It didn't cure any of my issues, but it did serve as the first step towards changing the way I think.

The best qualities about this book are 1) its readable 2) short and pithy- the writer does not assume the reader is an idiot and babbles on about one thought for pages on end. He gets to the point 3) organised beautifully with exercises at the end of the chapters to help you develop the theories presented

I like this book for its message and writing. I would give it a shot. I don't know if there are better book out there, but this lil book is a good read and I think you will find the principles useful.

You don't have to be New Age to enjoy Deepak's new book. The way he writes indicates that he has an intimate knowledge of happiness and this state of being is achievable no matter what your religion. The main chapters include:

Be Aware of Your Body
Find True Self-Esteem
Detoxify Your Life
Give Up Being Right
Focus on the Present
See the World in Yourself
Live for Enlightenment

I liked the chapter on body awareness because it teaches you to control your negative feelings. I also liked the idea of not putting anything into your body unless it will nourish you. This of course will require the reading of many books on nutrition.

The idea of giving up "being right" will be difficult for most people. I think it is still important to be able to defend your point of view. What would life be like without spirited conversations?

In the end, this book is more about eliminating unhappiness by changing your behavior. If you take the advice in this book and "release the need to change anyone else" you will probably be much happier because you won't constantly be disappointed.

For me, happiness is the feeling of love radiating from the core of my being. Being unhappy is when negative emotions fight to take away that feeling of love. This book has some of the pieces of the happiness puzzle so I recommend it along with some other selections that include:

Spontaneous Optimism: Proven Strategies for Health, Prosperity & Happiness

Recently I've read a lot of spiritual and self help books, and I really loved this one by Deepak Chopra for it's identification of really fundamental principles to live a happy life. The problem I find with spiritual and self help books is that they have too many words, too much advice. How do we really know the advice is complete and and basic enough to applied to our whole life. I got this thought of "complete" and "foundational" from the book Mylife Framework: A Model For A Successful Life Based On The Yoga Principles by Sunil Sheoran. This book may not polish your heart and feeling with flowery words but cuts to the core of all the spiritual philosophy and summarizes how to live a good life. A good - candid complement to Chopra's excellent motivational writing style. Coming back to Chopra's book, although the book doesn't provide a structure for life but it really highlights thoughts that are enough to live a happy life. The best thing, they are not too many advice, just seven principles and only in 144 pages, so I'd definitely recommend it. Definitely worth the time.
