The Ten Commitments: Translating Good Intentions into Great Choices

David Simon, Author, Deepak Chopra, Foreword by . HCI $16.95 (197p) ISBN 978-0-7573-0406-4

Grounded in both Eastern and Western spirituality and featuring an introduction by Deepak Chopra, in this book Simon (a neurologist who has co-authored several Chopra books) wants readers to turn away from a "commandment" mentality to a "commitment" mindset. For example, the Mosaic commandment against graven images is here transformed into a personal commitment to authenticity; the commandment to observe the Sabbath becomes a commitment to relax; the admonition to honor one's parents becomes a commitment to practice forgiveness in daily life. Though there's little new here, Simon writes in a positive, concrete way, giving readers daily schedules and checklists. He blends examples from his patients' and his own life with doses of Eastern wisdom from the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads and Ayurvedic healing. (May)
