We all know the Ten Commandments—and unfortunately most of us try to use the philosophy of "thou shalt not" (eat too much, work too hard, etc.) to command ourselves to make changes. David Simon, noted researcher and co-founder with Deepak Chopra of The Chopra Center, suggests a different path: instead of dwelling on the negative, embrace the positive and make commitments to live a better life. In doing so, we will transform our intentions (losing weight, spending more time with family, etc.) into concrete actions that will make change happen.

This short, precise book is not a lecture, but a practical primer on thoughtful change. There is a continuing hunger for Eastern philosophy and spirituality among Westerners—finally, one of the West's top experts, who has been writing on, lecturing, teaching, and practicing Eastern thought for over three decades, has melded these principles with our core Western beliefs, giving us a new perspective on the basic way we live our lives.

Key Features

  • Very warm and engaging tone, excellent writing, and numerous anecdotes make for a very compelling reading experience.
  • No "new thought" jargon: just precise, easily accessible advice. This is a breakout book.
  • Helps us focus on the simplest answers, much in the tradition of books like Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.
  • The ten step approach is familiar and comfortable.
  • Small, inexpensive and beautifully packaged hardcover makes this a perfect gift or daily reader.
