Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Deepak Chopra states that within each of us is a book of mysteries waiting to be opened, and when it is, the secrets of the universe will be revealed to us. The secret of love is to be found nowhere but within us, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, and faith, and the most elusive secret of all: who we truly are.

We all want to know whom to choose as a partner, what job to take, how to teach our children well. This audiobook, a crystalline distillation of insights and wisdom accumulated over the lifetime of one of the great spiritual thinkers of our time, isolates 15 secrets, among them, "What You Seek You Already Know", "Life Hurts When It Is Unreal", and "There Is No Time But Now", that can open our eyes to truths that point the way to transformation and enlightenment.

A Deepak Chopra favorite

I loved this book so much I restarted it from the beginning as soon as it finished, so I can listen to it again. It is a magnificent book for anyone interested in learning about our spiritual nature and the benefits of its wisdom.

Enlightening all the way through!

There is a ton of information packed into this book and all of it is wonderful to hear. Every section has something of interest and I was eager for more down to the last minute.

above expectation

I appreciate this book . I also own the hardcopy, but prefer the spoken word in this case, also because it is narrated by a person whose first language is English. The information is extremey worthwile, and I enjoy reading the book in addition to listening the audio version. I highly recomend this title; I find it the best of all his books.

Deepak has excelled himself

I found the narrator was an excellent choice for coveying the power of this book. Deepak has a beautiful voice however sometimes its uniqueness can cause the listener to lose the focus on the powerful message of his work.
This book is a tool kit for a spiritual life and i have been making incredible strides since the first download.
There is no padding or gimmickery,just pure heartfelt spirit to spirit transfer of the truth.
Buy this book and you will be transformed.

even better than the abridged version!

i wrote an enthusiastic review about the abridged version of this book. the unabridged book provides lots more detail which makes understanding of the content much easier. the only disadvantage: you miss deepak's gentle voice, because the unabridged audio book is narrated by another speaker. but still: a good voice!

Not narrated by Deepak!

I enjoy Deepak's voice and wish that I would have paid closer attention before I bought this book. I can't follow more than 5 min with this narrator because he is so boring and lacking in personality. I'll pay more attention in the future, but if hearing Deepak narrate his own books is important to you, don't buy this one.

WOW! What A Book!

I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I have. Don't we all love the "Aha!" moment when suddenly something we've always wanted to know, or hear, or (insert your own word here) suddenly pops up, as it can only really do in an audio book. And there were several of these experiencers for me, and I've been around, and around again, philosophy, religion, history, etc..
This book is a favorite for me, now, by a favorite author, and I wish I was rich enough to buy a copy for everybody in America, I'm that sure that nearly everyone would get something valuable out of it, as long as they listened carefully, and perhaps listened again. Everytime I listen I catch new, exciting things that somehow get by me the time before. This is a surprising, hard to categorize book, a gift of love, surely, from Deepak to his fans and to the world.

Hard to listen to...

I enjoyed the "content" of this book but it was really hard to listen to with reader's voice lacking passion for the information he was relating. The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire (read by Deepak) was fantastic, and I expected the same emotion with this book. Instead, I found myself looking forward to it being over. The secret I learned from the "Book of Secrets" is only by Deepak audiobooks read by the man himself.

Great inspiration...!

This is a good book. My only critique is the Narrator just plows through the chapters as if the book were one giant paragraph.

Worth reading many times!

I have read this book and just finished listening to it. It is deeply insightful, one of my favorites by Deepak. The reader has a very relaxing voice, you can really get into it.

good book to tap into spiritual self

this is a really great book to read if you are needing a boost in understanding what your path is in life from a spiritual perspective. This book will help give you a lift up into tapping into some of the things that you may need to in your journey. It opens the door for a deeper understanding of self in your life journey to do the work that your soul needs to do. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a short read that needs a little boost in historical journey.
