The Resume

    (October 22, 1946- )
    Born in New Delhi, India
    Advocate of traditional Ayurvedic medicine
    Wrote 'Creating Health' (1987), 'Quantum Healing' (1989), 'Perfect Health' (1991), 'Ageless Body, Timeless Mind' (1993), 'The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success' (1994), 'Everyday Immortality' (1999), 'Grow Younger, Live Longer' (2001), 'Golf for Enlightenment' (2003) and 'Life after Death: The Burden of Proof' (2006)
    Runs the Chopra Center for Well Being in La Jolla, California

Why he might be annoying:

    He layers technobabble about quantum physics over traditional New Age babble to make his ideas sound scientific.
    The Journal of the American Medical Association repudiated an article he co-wrote after discovering he held a financial interest in the ayurvedic products discussed in the paper (1991).
    He was sued for plagiarizing part of 'Ageless Body, Timeless Mind.'
    He has recorded several music CDs.
    He claims to know how to prevent aging, but does not include a current picture on his web page or his recent book jackets.
    He delivers lectures about the evils of materialism at $25,000 a pop.

Why he might not be annoying:

    Much of what he advocates -- eat less fat and sugar, don't drink or smoke, relax, etc. -- is healthier than the average American lifestyle.
    He says his mission is 'to heal, to love, to transform and to serve.'
    He advocates disarmament, environmentalism and economic sustainability.
