    1. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! There's so many life lessons that you shouldn't miss! This book is a must read to all of us. For us to understand ourselves more in much deeper and clearer perspective. This book made me surrender to my mother after we had a small fight. I love the part which Dr. Chopra shares the concept of: What is most important to us, TO BE RIGHT OR TO BE HAPPY??!!! Most of us chose to be right yet we ended up being wounded and unhappy. We all seek for happiness and we just couldn't find [...]

    2. I've never read any Deepak Chopra books before, perhaps now I know why. I contemplated giving this a 2 because it was filled primarily with vague statements and murky instructions. It reminded me of the Family Guy episode where Brian writes a best seller. But alas, there were some good ideas in there - even if you had to extrapolate a bit to get them. The problem was the instructions for each of the 7 keys were even more vague, in fact, some just didn't make much sense at all. Or perhaps it's ju [...]

    3. This book will forever be a favorite. It's mind and life changing. I just wanted to read and read and did not want to put it down. It's very deep and needs to be reread to sink in. The only thing I didn't like about it was how he says at the end of the book that we become God and have God consciousness. That is not possible and stems from ignorance of the qualities of the Creator of the universe. Other than that, the book is priceless and I'm now interested in reading more of Deepak Chopra's boo [...]

    4. الكتاب فيه حوالي 5 أفكار متدرجين في الصعوبة لازم يترسخوا في قناعاتك عشان تكون أكثر سعادة 1- العيش والتواصل مع الناس من خلال الذات الحقيقية مش المزيفة 2- لا مزيد من الجدل لأنه ينشئ عداوات الأفضل ألا تجادل ولا تصر على كونك على حق لا تجادل فتكون أكثر سعادة في علاقاتك 3- العيش هنا و [...]

    5. Deepak Chopra gives us the keys to enlightment. It is now up to us to open the doors. This was a quick read and extremely helpful. The writing style is easy to follow. I finished this book feeling lighter and inspired. One of my favorite "self-help" books.

    6. ملخص كتاب وصفات الطبيب للسعادة القصوىديباك شوبرامعادلة السعادة السعادة= النقطة المحدده في الدماغ + الاحوال المعيشية + النشاط الطوعيHappiness = set point + conditions of living + voluntary activitiesالعامل الاول في المعادلة: النقطة المحددههي النقطة الطبيعية التى تتأثر بالمعتقدات والوالدين ، و تتأثر هذه [...]

    7. Quick review for a quick read. A library read that was recommended to me regarding texts on mindfulness. I really enjoyed it. "The Ultimate Happiness Prescription" is one of the most concise, inspiring reads that I've picked up in its respective genre. Chopra's explanation of the seven keys are logical, honest, encouraging, and informative. While admittedly much of this may be simply stated, I think revisiting the affirmations helps in one quick guide that's easy to flip back to and put to pract [...]

    8. When you see the world in yourself, there are no more outward obstacles to happiness.The inner and outer worlds are mirrors of each other. They change accordingly to your level of consciousness."Our self-image is created when we identify with external things.I enjoyed this book and the keys to happiness. I definitely agree with him on most of the things he talks about. Although he has written many books so far - I still sometimes have issues reading some sentences by him for some reason. Maybe b [...]

    9. I did not like this book as much as his previous books. A short, quick read.On page 13, he unveils his formula for happiness:Happiness= Set Point + Conditions of Living + Voluntary Activities. We all have a certain set point, which is how naturally happy you are. Unhappy people seem to interpret situations as problems, while happy people see the very same situations as opportunities. He says researchers have found that around 40% of our happiness relates to this set point. One of the goals is to [...]

    10. Knjiga prepuna poučnih savjeta o životu, radosti, sreći. "Upute" kako se nositi sa samim sobom na svakodnevnoj bazi, kako si olakšati život. Zašto bi bilo komplicirano, kada može biti jednostavno? :)Preporučam.

    11. My dad brought me this book as a gift ❤️❤️ i loved it so much and I learned a new things like :1-be aware of your body 2- focus on the present 3-see the world in yourself

    12. This is one of my favorite thoughts from the book: "Most people are trapped trying to impose their viewpoint on the world. They carry around beliefs about what is right and wrong, and they hold on to these beliefs for years. “I am right” brings comfort, but not true happiness. The people you feel wronged by will never apologize and make your wounds and grievances go away. The people you judge against will remain isolated from you. No one has ever been made happy by proving that they are righ [...]

    13. This is a very quick read - (139 pages) and I picked it up because I was wanting to learn more about meditation. Instead, I learnt that happiness is about understanding about enlightenment. I come from a very western, individual culture and I was interested to read about how every part of us has been part of something else at some time. I liked the illustration given at the very end of the book where the author kissed the lips of his grand daughter after a trip to the beach and could even tast t [...]

    14. في هذا الكتاب الخفيف في الكم (١٣٤) صفحه، العميق في الفكرة يناقش الدكتور ديباك تشوبرا السعادة وكيفية الوصول لمرحلة السعادة الدائمة. بحيث يكون كل ماتقوم به في حياتك من إنجاز او إبداع نابع من ذلك الشعور المستمر بالسعادة. بعض الناس يظن ان الوصول للسعادة ناتج عن تحقيق إنجاز او ثرو [...]

    15. من أجمل الكتب اللي قرأتها ويناسب مرحلتي بعد كتاب حديث السكون اللي قرأته في عام 2013.قرأت كتاب لديباك بالانقلش يمكن عام 2012 ولا أدعي أني فهمت لأن ديباك بالنسبة لي كلامه أعمق بكثير من أني أدركه كله جملة واحدة، لذلك فضلت أرجع أقرا له لكن بالعربي، ومن هنا تجدر الإشارة إلى إن ترجمة جر [...]

    16. I consider myself a pretty happy person so I picked this up as a means to help deepen that contentment - I thought it was a nice reflection piece of reading and it helped me to be more conscious of certain aspects that I may have overlooked in the idea of maintaining deeper happiness. It is a quick read and it is not meant to be a "have all the answers" type of book. If you can read it with an open mind and a forgiving heart, I think it can help each person view different (and difficult) aspects [...]

    17. A very quick read, but one with excellent insight. Each one of the seven keys described are definitely necessary to find the correct inner state in life. I particularly liked the advice which states that we remain constant in the face of any adversity that comes, peaks and melts away. Hence, our focus should be the self and not the situation. Extremely well written, and a must read.

    18. Note: I listened to this on audio. This was a tough one to listen to because I felt like I wanted to "re-read" every other sentence, and that's not easy to do on my iphone. I will definitely be re-reading this one in print. Love Deepak's voice though. Very soothing!

    19. singkat sajanarik, inspiratif namun sayang kurang detail. Untuk Deepak Chopra, lain kali cobalah lebih keras lagi. buku ini tidak buruk malah bagus tapi sayang bukan hasil terbaik anda. saya tunggu. :)

    20. While i am reading this book, there is a smile on mu face and and i feel deepest happiness from inside :)Thank you Depack Chopra

    21. my first chapter (part) was my favorite because I have tried to be in uncomfortable situations and my body was giving me danger signs before being in that situation so I like the book at general but the first part was the best.

    22. An easy read with some great 'To Do' tips. Just worth the read if you are exploring your own awareness and/or happiness and what you can do about it.

    23. A quick read. But a lot of what he talks about is more discussion and can only be experienced through practices in the long term such as meditation.
