Dr. Chopra’s talk, in a sense, distills a lot of relevant material from his book: The Big Five: Five Simple Things to Live a Longer Life and his latest book, published in December 2017 by St. Martin’s Press and co-authored with Gina Vild: The Two Most Important Days: How to Find your Purpose and Live a Happy and Healthy Life.
The Two Most Important Days is a life-changer of a book. It connects happiness with finding your life’s purpose and shows you how to start achieving both. The philosophy and poetry are inspiring, and the book is also grounded in studies, psychology, science, fun facts, and exercises-so it’s a wonderful balance of theory
This book has been extremely well received:
“Every life has its trials and tribulations. Yet you’ll find each challenge and opportunity is a touchstone to higher consciousness and leads you closer to a life of love, compassion, joy, equanimity, and self-realization. This majestic book has much wisdom to savor and practical steps to help you navigate life’s many forks. I promise it will delight!”
“The Two Most Important Days has something for everyone. Skeptics will find research data, poets will find poetry, seekers will find spiritual wisdom, and everyone will find warm, down-to-earth, common-sense approaches to making life richer and more satisfying. You will be inspired as you read it cover-to-cover and then return for practical reminders of what you can do today, in this moment, to bring more joy and meaning to your life.”
–Robert Waldinger, M.D., director of Harvard Study of Adult Development
“Sanjiv Chopra and Gina Vild have gracefully woven the wisdom of generations and recent scientific research into a delightfully practical understanding of how each of us can achieve happiness. And, importantly, how we can share it with others–family, friends (and foes) and a world in need of joy and healing. Keep a note pad handy as you read. You will definitely find yourself saying ‘Wow, I can do that!’ And, smiling to yourself.”
-Ambassador Richard Celeste
“This book is an absolute gem, radiating a sense of joy and wonder throughout its pages. It inspires reflection and offers simple yet important changes that will bring renewal and purpose to one’s life. Grounded in science that explains how gratitude, forgiveness, meditation, yoga, and friendships boosts what’s known as the ‘happiness quotient,’ this books illuminates a path forward with practical and engaging exercises and inspirational poetry.”
