Publisher's Summary

Bob Roth is one of the world's most sought-after teachers of transcendental meditation - a highly effective form of meditation that goes beyond mindfulness to produce a deeper and long-lasting sense of peace.
Every day we face a growing epidemic of stress. People of every race, age and income all make the same confession: 'I am so stressed'. There is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to life's stresses: the transcendental meditation technique. With scientifically proven benefits, improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity and memory, this method has a direct impact.
For nearly five decades, Bob Roth has helped bring transcendental meditation to millions of people around the world - in 35 countries across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. Once a sceptic, he learned the art from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation.
As Co-Founder and Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob teaches frequently at inner-city schools, veterans' hospitals, battered women's shelters, homeless shelters and prisons. Bob is also the go-to meditation teacher for leading figures in the worlds of media and business.
Beautifully presented, Strength in Stillness is a simple, classic guide to calming your mind and body.

It’s not about TM techniques

This book is more of a series of examples on how TM played out for people doing it. It doesn’t cover the how to TM and it sure sounds a lot like a prospective way to sell the reader into joining a TM center.

A superb outline of the benefits of meditation

What did you like most about Strength in Stillness?

The book discusses the use of meditation in today's frenetic world to relieve the effects of stress. Its main focus is on TM, Transcendental Meditation. However, it does not teach the practice, which needs to be learnt from a teacher.

What other book might you compare Strength in Stillness to, and why?

There are numerous other books on meditation. This is succinct and is without philosophy.

Which character – as performed by Bob Roth – was your favourite?

This is not a fictional book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The testimonies of folk who have benefitted from the technique.

Don't recommend

I bought the book to to learn what TM is - instead it is yet another talk by Bob Roth with no answers.
In fact the book is, in many ways, simply a repetition of his Youtube videos available for free.
I would not recommend wasting money on this book.

Peace at a price.

It costs $1500 to reap the rewards of transcendental meditation in Newcastle. Really!
Surely Hugh Jackman and Jerry Seinfeld can’t be wrong?
I’ll take 2!

Gross Misrepresentation & Lack of Courage

What disappointed you about Strength in Stillness?

"... one of the world's most sought-after teachers of transcendental meditation", and yet he makes no attempt to teach transcendental meditation in this book. He merely tells you that transcendental meditation is a worthwhile practice.

"Strength in Stillness is a simple, classic guide to calming your mind and body." No, it is definitively not a "guide". This is misleading and deceptive. This book is not a "guide" of any kind, not in calming your mind and body, and not in transcendental meditation. It is a simple sales pitch as to why you should see a teacher who will "guide" you in transcendental meditation.

The book itself is nothing other than wasted potential as it does not have the courage to even try to impart the teacher's knowledge and wisdom onto its readers, rather once it has interested readers with eager and open minds it turns them away and sends them to find what they are searching for elsewhere...
