The Icedrop' is more than just a book, or a guide, or a course. It is all of these and more. Not many times does something change your life and the way you look at it. This book has the potential to do it.

It isn't something that I put together on the spur of the moment. The message shared in this book took years to learn. It didn't come to me in a flash of inspiration or enlightenment. Thirty years of life experiences stand behind these timeless concepts.

As a heart surgeon for children, who later changed gears to also take on roles of non-profit fund raiser, writer, entrepreneur and coach, my career has seen many twists and turns driven by ambition, and a desire to face and conquer challenges.

Along the way, I learned many lessons. Some were painless. Others, painful. A positive attitude towards enquiring, learning, testing out and confirming these lessons is what this book is about.

From this rich experience were distilled the concepts which I highlight throughout 'The Icedrop'. Concepts that could change the way you see things - forever. Simple shifts to the way you think, that will help you harness your real power and true potential. Patterns of behaviour that will convince you that it's ok to follow your heart.

Well, ''The Icedrop'' has been almost 15 years in the making!

When I first started writing it, I had returned from extensive travels around the world to finish my medical training. There was plenty of learning compressed into that 5 year period, as I went from London to Australia, and returned to India but moved to a different city - before coming back home.

A few years before this, my friend John Harricharan, a widely acclaimed and reputed author who has penned some classics including "The Power Pause" and "Morning Has Been All Night Coming", encouraged me to share my ideas about harnessing emotion to tackle difficult life situations. He urged me to write from the unique perspective of a doctor, a heart specialist.

So I did. And 'The Emotion Prism' was very popular among readers. That encouraged me to start on another work with a similar, if not related, message.

I had no idea back then that it would stretch out to so many years, and that the book itself would grow and evolve along with me!

These truths, concepts and philosophies are universal. They are eternal, have existed for ever so long. All I have done in my book is to write about these concepts and illustrate them using an allegory - the travels of Adrian Ice Drop.

What's new in this book, and unique too, is that the message is presented as a story - in a way that is enjoyable to read, simple to digest and easy to embrace. As a reader, you're able to relate better to an Icedrop's story than a dull, dry discourse or lecture.

The choice of title is representative of the book itself. A water drop is familiar. But an "ice drop"?

Still, think about it. Ice is just another form of water. It melts to flow, then vaporizes to float. It takes different forms, acquires different properties, to achieve different results. Yet it's essentially the same thing... with the same power, potential and capabilities.

It's just like that with you, and me, and everybody else.

That's the reason why we can relate to Adrian Ice Drop. Imagine ourselves as being on the journey he takes. Identify with the different forms he adopts along his travels.

And finally, if 'The Icedrop' helps reveal the true potential lying within you, it will have been worth writing.

Everyone loves to listen to a story. It makes the process more enjoyable, entertaining, fun. Much more so than listening to a dry discourse or studying a "how-to" manual. Far from diluting the message, this style makes it simpler to follow and understand.

No author can feel strongly about something he or she hasn't experienced. I use some examples from my own life, ones that have affected the way I looked at things - my career choices, behavior and relationships, financial and business activities, everything. And I think this powerful emotion conveys itself to readers through the book, and adds impact to the message I'm trying to share.

But they aren't exclusively based on my own life. As a doctor and entrepreneur, I've had the privilege of interacting with thousands of people. And I've drawn from their experiences, too.

In a word - Everyone.

The reason is simple. These truths are universal. They should - and will - benefit you, no matter who you are, where you live, or what you do. People from different professions, ethnic groups, countries, religions and cultures have benefited from them. You can too.

And if you're thinking this is going to be a complex, lengthy, difficult process - stop. Nothing could be further from the truth. Indeed the danger with a book like this is that you might think these ideas are too simple to really work.

The simple concepts that will form the crux of your strategy to transform your life are not at all complicated. To understand and apply them, you don't need to be a genius. Anyone can learn to use them. But it takes time.

It is always difficult to accept something new, something different. Old habits die hard. But if you persist they can be beaten. If at first you have some difficulty with wrapping your head around these concepts, remember your life will be much better when you've learned - and accepted - how powerful you really are.

Oh, and be patient. Don't give up. Change, especially inner change, can be a slow process. But give it time, and it will happen.
