Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D., a 20-year researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health and the celebrated psychiatrist who pioneered the study and treatment of Season Affective Disorder (SAD), brings us the most important work on Transcendental Meditation since the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Science of Being and Art of Living - and one of our generation's most significant books on achieving greater physical and mental health and wellness.

Transcendence demystifies the practice and benefits of Transcendental Meditation for a general audience who may have heard about the method but do not necessarily know what it is, how it is learned, or what they stand to gain, physically and emotionally, from achieving transcendence. Dr. Rosenthal clearly and practically explains the basic ideas behind transcendental meditation: It is a nonreligious practice that involves sitting comfortably for 20 minutes twice a day while using a silent mantra, or nonverbal sound, to attain a profound state of aware relaxation.

Alongside exclusive celebrity interviews - in which such figures as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Martin Scorsese, Russell Brand, Laura Dern, Moby, and David Lynch openly discuss their meditation - Dr. Rosenthal draws upon experience from the lives of his patients and a wealth of clinical research amassed on Transcendental Meditation over the past generation (including 340 peer-reviewed published articles). He provides the fullest and most accessible book ever on the broad range of benefits of this remarkably simple practice - from relief of anxiety, stress, and depression to new hope for those experiencing addiction, attention-deficit disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

    " Not very well written, but a compelling subject. Going to give it a try. "

    " I bought it to get some background on the tm method before I went to pay for the classes . It didn't give much of a overview of how it worked and spent most of the rest dealing with the benefits of meditation. Not really what I was looking for "

    " I started reading this but then it got into the whole "you need an official TM teacher to help you" bit coupled with all sorts of celebrity name dropping and it reminded me way too much of scientology. I'm sticking with Pema Chodron and awareness meditation. "

    " I learned a bit more about transcendence from this book, but mostly I was encouraged that many of the people reported in the book talked of benefits coming after months of doing TM. I've been doing it for one month,and that means chances are it's going to get even better! "
