Publisher's Summary

The authors of the New York Times best seller Super Brain present a bold new understanding of our genes and how simple changes in lifestyle can boost genetic activity. The leap into "radical well-being" is a promise waiting to be fulfilled.
"You are not simply the sum total of the genes you were born with," writes Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi. "You are the user and controller of your genes, the author of your biological story. No prospect in self-care is more exciting."
Learning how to shape your gene activity is at the heart of this exciting and eagerly anticipated book from the best-selling duo behind Super Brain, which became a nationwide hit on public television.
For decades medical science has believed that genes determined our biological destiny. Now the new genetics has changed that assumption forever. You will always have the genes you were born with, but genes are dynamic, responding to everything we think, say, and do. Suddenly they've become our strongest allies for personal transformation. When you make lifestyle choices that optimize how your genes behave, you can reach for a state of health and fulfillment undreamed of even a decade ago. The impact on prevention, immunity, diet, aging, and chronic disorders is unparalleled.

Critic Reviews

"The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era. This hard-core materialistic view has been a kind of psychological enslavement that has pushed many people into nihilism and despair. In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi discuss new evidence that our genes are not our masters, but they respond in large measure to our choices and behaviors. The resulting view honors not just the body but mind and spirit as well - a vision that is as bright and hopeful as the old view was morbid and depressing. Super Genes is an important book." (Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters)
"In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic science and argue persuasively that adapting one's lifestyle can maximize the potential to transcend the inherited susceptibilities handed down to us from our parents." (James Gusella, PhD, director, Center for Human Genetic Research, Harvard Medical School)
"Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior is now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, our perception of the environment. Super Genes, by Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, is a paradigm-shattering synthesis of epigenetic science that offers an easy-to-understand explanation of the mechanisms by which consciousness and environment control our genetic activity. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi's contribution is a valuable resource that empowers us to become the masters of our fate rather than the 'victims' of our heredity." (Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, epigenetic scientist and best-selling author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution, and The Honeymoon Effect)

A bit technical, but overall Fascinating

Any additional comments?

A lot of scientific knowledge at first, but these first few chapters lays the groundwork for understanding why the lifestyle changes they suggest are so important. Fascinating read!

I'm so impressed

Wow this has been a great ride. Personally I've been working on my own wellness routine over 23 years. I have to tell people around the world this great message for humanity. I'm so grateful that when the audiobook finished I cried on my knees thanking the universe for this tremendous and valuable information. I'm going to hear this 100 times to memorize each part of this book.

Thank you authors for leading us to enlightenment.
