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.

Inspirational yet "Informercional"
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would add more specific meditation instruction.
If you’ve listened to books by Norman E. Rosenthal before, how does this one compare?
What three words best describe Gildart Jackson’s performance?
His tone of voice and style is very inspirational and motivational.
Was Transcendence worth the listening time?
Yes and no.
Any additional comments?
There was plenty of wonderful telling of how important transcendental meditation is. I believe it, I would have liked less selling of meditation centers and more information about the meditation process itself.
