Super Genes: A Book Review

Super Genes: Unlock the Astonishing Power of Your DNA for Optimum Health and Well-Being by Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi

This book is WAY outside of my normal reading. Quite honestly, I thought it would be a little, well, over my head with its use of big medical and/or psychology terminology. Despite that, I was intrigued by the subject matter and thought it might be worth giving the book a try.

Written by two doctors - one medical and one a PhD - who apparently wrote the New York Times bestseller Super Brain, this book promised to tackle how we can shape our gene activity to influence the rest of our life. Like I said, fascinating concept, right? For decades, medical science has believed that genes determine our biological destiny. However, new genetic testing and knowledge suggests that, while our genes truly do dictate parts of our lives (eye color), there are other genes that are dynamic, responding to what we think, say and do. The authors present that the lifestyle choices we make can optimize how our genes behave, creating change in other areas of our lives.

Overall, I thought this book was good to read once. It had some empowering ideas and examples, and I like to think that I can apply some of what was recommended in parts of my life to improve my health and overall well-being.
