In Brotherhood, Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra reveal the story of their personal struggles and triumphs as doctors, immigrants, and brothers. They were born in the ferment of liberated India after 1947, as an age-old culture was reinventing its future. For the young, this meant looking to the West.
The Chopra brothers were among the most eager and ambitious of the new generation. In the 1970s, they each emigrated to the United States to make a new life. Both faced tough obstacles: while Deepak encountered resistance from Western-trained doctors over what he called the mind-body connection, Sanjiv struggled to reconcile the beliefs of his birthplace with those of his new home. Eventually, each brother became convinced that America was the right place to build a life, and the Chopras went on to great achievements - Deepak as a global spiritual teacher and bestselling author, Sanjiv as a world-renowned medical expert and professor at Harvard Medical School.
Brotherhood will fascinate and inspire those who still believe in America's capacity to foster achievement and reward hard work.

Difficult to listen because of accents always nice to have the authors narrate but accents were so strong.
"Another lovely and insightful Chopra Classic"
Yes I am always glad to hear Deepak's voice and enunciation
The color and diversity of Deepak's wide range of topic and wisdom are always fulfilling.
the interplay between their respective stories and their memories and humor.
it was profound...ina unique manner
this is a comprehensive review of some of Deepak's vast experience in the human life. it adds so much more vlue to Deepak's wide experience and philosophy and yes science.
I loved the frankness of this memoir. The fact that it was narrated by Deepak and Sanjiv made it even more personal and special. I enjoyed hearing about their triumphs, their disappointments and each of their love of family. Sanjiv first seemed gruff and opinionated, but I grew to really love and appreciate him over the course of the book.
