A simple, straightforward exploration of Transcendental Meditation and its benefits from world authority Bob Roth.

Oprah Winfrey and Jerry Seinfeld. Ray Dalio and Ellen DeGeneres. Gwyneth Paltrow and Howard Stern. Tom Hanks and Gisele Bündchen.

What do they have in common? The answer is a Transcendental Meditation teacher named Bob Roth, who has spent the past forty-five years helping many thousands of people access their innate creativity and power through this simple, nonreligious technique. Roth's students range from titans of business and the arts to federal prisoners, from war-scarred veterans to overworked moms and dads.

Medical experts agree that the epidemic of stress is damaging our physical and emotional health at younger and younger ages. While there is no one single cure, the Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to stress and life's challenges. With scientifically proven benefits-- reduced stress and anxiety, and improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity, and memory, to name a few--this five-thousand-year-old technique has a clear and direct impact on our very modern problems.

Once a skeptic, Roth trained under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the twentieth century's foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation, and has since become one of the most experienced and sought-after meditation teachers in the world. In Strength in Stillness , Roth breaks down the science behind Transcendental Meditation in a new, accessible way. He highlights the three distinct types of meditation--Focused Attention, Open Monitoring, and Self-Transcending--and showcases the evidence that the third, Self-Transcending, or Transcendental Meditation, is a uniquely accessible, effective, and efficient way to reduce stress, access inner power, and build resilience.

Free of gimmicks, mystical verbiage, and obscure theory, Strength in Stillness offers a clear explanation for how Transcendental Meditation can calm the mind, body, and spirit.

An advertisement for an expensive form of meditation that isn't really any better than various other forms you could learn from a book. Definitely not a guide to Transcendental Meditation -- because a guide to Transcendental Meditation would defeat the entire purpose of Transcendental Meditation, which appears to be to take your money.

Reads as an infomercial, complete with locations of TM centers across the U.S., in the very back of the book. Small snippets from very famous TM practitioners such as Jerry Seinfeld and Russell Brand throws off the whole flow of the book and the entire point of TM, which is where it should be about you and your own senses, not other personal accounts from others. It's great that it has worked for them! But this book and TM should also help you, too! It doesn't! This is not a good book for those looking to start using TM, or are even curious about its usefulness.
