Self-help mogul Deepak Chopra will join the growing ranks of celebrities hired to draw from their “broad network of contacts” to “initiate, recommend and submit” books for publication at divisions of Random House. Unlike Dana Perino or Ruth Reichl, Dr. Chopra will have his own eponymous imprint at Crown, Deepak Chopra Books. According to the press release, “The ultimate goal is an ‘expanded science’ that bridges spirituality.”
Dr. Chopra is already something of a one-man imprint: according to his web site, where he is described as “a global force in the field of human empowerment,” he has authored more than 55 books, including The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success; The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success for Parents; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes; Kama Sutra: Including the Seven Spiritual Laws of Love and Golf For Enlightenment: The Seven Lessons for the Game of Life. Followers of Dr. Chopra can rest assured that if there is any remaining area of their lives lacking seven spiritual laws, he will eventually get around to it.
