Review: The Ultimate Happiness Prescription: 7 Keys to Joy and Enlightenment by Deepak Chopra

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 practice. Many of the principles here encourage mindfulness and note that happiness isn’t a byproduct of having things from the external world, but rather comes from within and being honest in a unified mind, body, and spirit approach. I enjoyed the read immensely, and I definitely could see myself coming back to this for years to come. Chopra narrated the audiobook as well, and I give it extra notation for his clear diction and soothing voice.

Overall score: 4/5 stars.
