Fools Rush In Where Angels Fear To Tread
on February 9, 1997
Deepake Chopra outlines a type of therapy that is supposed to prolong life, known as Ayudavistic therapy, a form of Indian folk medicine untouched by Western scientific advances.
This book is largely devoid of merit, and acceptance of the contents rests largely on uncritical acceptance of Chopra's statements. In one section, where Chopra discusses the "connectedness of the universe," there is an attempt to bolster his argument throught the use, or misuse, of presentation of a quantum physics theorem. His own understanding of Bell's theorem consists of a deep misunderstanding of what quantum physics is and how one may generalize from its theorems.
All-in-all, a bad book, which free mixes science with pseudo-science to yield an unpalatable concoction
