A quick internet search of Deepak Chopra will bring up the statement that he believes “that a person may attain “perfect health”, a condition “that is free from disease, that never feels pain”, and “that cannot age or die”. Chopra is quite an interesting person and knowing his background, what do you think would be included in his book entitled Radical Beauty?
The focus of the book is on achieving inner beauty that will in turn transform the external being. It involves a holistic approach to life through the pillars of healthy living – internal and external nourishment, sleep, living naturally, avoiding excessive stress and inflammatory foods.
The presentation of the book is consistent with the message. Radical Beauty is a beautiful book to admire – its simple cover design incorporates the beautiful co-authors – but, surprisingly enough, the interior may be even more attractive. The layout is very readable and the information is accessible in resource format. There are lots of red and pink hues in the book, and yet the focus is on practical tips ranging from why you should avoid drinking straws to why you should eliminate foie gras and other offal products from your diet, to a more in-depth understanding of the different types of breathing and how to achieve the deepest one.
Spanning 300+ pages, Radical Beauty outlines how to replace inflammatory foods with more healthful options and recipes for meals and beauty treatments like the ayurvedic oil massage and nail treatments. There is lots to read and love in this book and just think, this could help you live a longer, healthier, happier and most importantly, more beautiful life.
Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
