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.

"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"
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.

"Easier Said Than Done"
Interesting to know that your genes are not necessarily your destiny and that small changes in your life can render them malleable. Really liked that the suggested changes in each section were broken down into "easy choices," "harder choices," and "experimental choices." The authors also encourage only making one change per week with the goal of it becoming a permanent one. I did attempt some of the easier changes, and I have to say that they are easier said than done! I will keep trying.
"Mind Expanding Book"
I would recommend this to those who are wanting to learn more about who you are and what your potentials could be if you awakened to the possibilities within your DNA.
I can't say one moment, but I really enjoyed some of the studies that were done to explore the potentials within our DNA.
I loved his voice and his narration was very good, not dry, but right there with with right emotional inflections for what he was reading.
I just see the whole potential for DNA Activation work that will arise up from the science that is being presented. It is time for the science and the spiritual teachers to bring their knowledge together.
It is a very stimulating book and wonderful to listen to so you can think fully along with the audio instead of having to read as well. Found it expanded my mind more than reading.
"Worth your time"
The world is changing around us. Medicine is struggling to keep up with the tremendous paradigm shifts.
Taking charge of your own health is the only solution. In this informative & easy to understand book. You will take a significant step in your journey.
"Knowledge Before The Masses"
This is a very informative book of what is known of the epigenome, and what is to come in the future. It talks a little about what we can do to start changing our DNA now, by changing our habits. It is not a how-to book, but it gives us a head-start, until specific gene treatment, of some sort, will be available to ward off diseases of the body and mind, which will be passed on to the DNA of unborn children and their children's children.
"amazingly interesting there is hope!"
My family always said their obesity and tooth loss was genetic. I found this book amazing! it gave me hope and a sense of determination to save my children from reversible damage. thank you both for sharing your knowledge.
