WALKING WISDOM by Gotham Chopra with Deepak Chopra (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Gotham Chopra considers himself a pretty average guy, but his childhood wasn’t quite so average. Growing up, Gotham was exposed to the deepest reservoirs of knowledge that his famous father, Deepak, could find. A newly minted father himself, he’s contemplating the influences he wants to draw on for his own son. The first was no surprise: his father. The second was unexpected: his dogs. From Nicholas, the blaze of energy who turned the family upside down, to Cleo, a rescue mutt with food issues, the Chopra dogs taught the family about curiosity and wisdom, open-mindedness and passion. But what else? And how did these lessons compare to the ones that Deepak himself imparted?
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio's narrator, Gotham Chopra. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
