Walking Wisdom is a memoir of spirituality across three generations. Looking back as a new father, Gotham Chopra considers the lessons he wishes to pass to his own son. When reflecting back on the strongest influences in his life, the first was no surprise: his father. But the second was unexpected: his dogs. Growing up, Gotham Chopra and his sister were exposed to everything from the Bible to biology, from the Bhagavad Gita to Brave New World. They were also the ubiquitous and unwitting guinea pigs for their physician father's endless spiritual experiments. Gotham's childhood was part spiritual, part scientific and totally unique, but somehow he ended up (relatively) normal. Walking Wisdom is a poignant and powerful narrative that chronicles all of the love and licks that come with having a dog, along with the contradictions, complexities and the consequences of having children.

Gotham Chopra is an award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker. Deepak Chopra is the author of countless bestselling books, including The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and Quantum Healing.From Publishers Weekly:
The Chopras present some life lessons through a dog's point of view in a charming new book. As Deepak's grandson Gotham engages the neighbor's dog in a blissful game of fetch, Deepak sagely observes: "What we witnessed is play and innocence at its best," or, as Gotham put it: "Dogs innately understand not just the desire for play but also the need." Chopra takes us on a series of events affecting the Chopra households, including a hilarious cross-country plane trip with an untranquilized dog, an expensive trip to Italy, and the events surrounding an elderly relative's grave illness. Along the way, we learn the valuable lessons that man's best friend can teach us: "dogs-like the universe-don't hold grudges. They forgive and evolve." The younger Chopra even relates an incident in which his dog was a better judge of character than he was. The one sour note is a lengthy detour on Michael Jackson, whose death occurs while Gotham is on a bike trip in Italy, contributing little to the book. That aside, this glimpse into the softer side of the Chopra family should significantly expand the family's fan base.
