Publisher's Summary

From Israel to Afghanistan to Iraq to the war on terror, the world is shaken by unending conflict. There has never been a better time for a book on peace, and Deepak Chopra, drawing from a timeless wisdom tradition, shows us where the path to peace truly lies. According to Deepak Chopra, "If the way of peace is to succeed, it must offer a substitute for everything war now offers.""The Seven Spiritual Paths to Peace" teaches how each of us can put an end to these things. To end war we must stop reacting out of fear. As Dr. Chopra puts it, "Violence may be innate in human nature, but so is its opposite: love. The next stage of humanity, the leap to which we are poised to take, will be guided by the force of that love." This seven-step program offers a framework for changing the reader's consciousness.

What the Critics Say

"Chopra's affirmation that 'our true identity is at the level of spirit and nowhere else' has the ring of truth and so does the rest of this simple, practical, inspiring book." (Publishers Weekly)

We Can Do This

This book is a bit depressing becuase it examines war before it covers peace. However. it is enlightening in that it shows that we as individuals do have power and responsibility on the issue of Peace. Whether you agree with Deepok's political opinions or not, his solution is plausible.

Does not promote peace

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm disappointed because I really like Deepak. But as someone from the south I'm tired of the entire population being painted with a broad brush and southerners used as the bad example. It's no different than saying "________ (fill in an entire part of the world or race) are all (fill in a disparaging remark)." It does not promote peace to disparage a whole section of the country. I'm sure Deepak has many followers there. As for Sherman and his bunch burning Atlanta to the ground, after the Union army finished that feat they turned west and wiped out the natives. No one ever mentions that part. They aren't heroes.
