In Brotherhood, Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra reveal the story of their personal struggles and triumphs as doctors, immigrants, and brothers. They were born in the ferment of liberated India after 1947, as an age-old culture was reinventing its future. For the young, this meant looking to the West.
 
The Chopra brothers were among the most eager and ambitious of the new generation. In the 1970s, they each emigrated to the United States to make a new life. Both faced tough obstacles: While Deepak encountered resistance from Western-trained doctors over the mind-body connection, Sanjiv struggled to reconcile the beliefs of his birthplace with those of his new home.
 
Eventually, each brother became convinced that America was the right place to build a life, and the Chopras went on to great achievements—Deepak as a global spiritual teacher and best-selling author, Sanjiv as a world-renowned medical expert and professor at Harvard Medical School.
 
Brotherhood will fascinate and inspire those who still believe in America’s capacity to foster achievement and reward hard work.

The warm memoir follows the lives of brothers Deepak and Sanjiv Chopra, who left a comfortable life in post-war India to develop their professional skills in America, both achieving success following in their father’s footsteps as healers—Deepak as bestselling author, physician, and speaker, and Sanjiv as professor of medicine and faculty dean for continuing medical education at Harvard Medical School.

Reading a joint memoir by two brothers was a novel experience. What was more and inspiring was that these brothers, each famous in his own right, started out lives very similar and then diverged considerably.
Sanjiv and Deepak Chopra are renowned practitioners and teachers of Western and Eastern medicine, teaching, and spirituality respectively. Through this diverse view they have managed to maintain the ties of brotherhood and it is heartening to note that proud as they are of being Americans, they cherish their Indian roots and upbringing. I would recommend this book to anyone.
