Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal is the world-renowned psychiatrist and author whose research in describing seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and pioneering use of light therapy have helped millions of people around the world. His newest book, Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation,* explores the value of this ancient technique for healing and transformation in the modern world.

Dr Rosenthal's broad-ranging book will appeal both to newcomers who want to know the basics about this ancient technique, and to seasoned meditators wishing to broaden their knowledge and deepen their understanding about it. By presenting a mix of fascinating stories, published research, and his own clinical experience, Dr Rosenthal illustrates the value of the Transcendental Meditation program in promoting cardiac health, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping people suffering from traumatic stress and addiction.

He devotes chapters to the benefits of TM for helping children in inner-city schools, as well as for rehabilitating people who are often left behind, such as prisoners and homeless men and women. Dr Rosenthal emphasizes that TM can especially help highly successful people to live fuller and richer lives. He illustrates this in interviews with prominent meditators such as Paul McCartney, Martin Scorsese, Moby, Russell Brand, and Laura Dern. Dr. Rosenthal's central point is that because TM changes the brain, it can help a vast array of different people to live longer and better lives, and achieve lifelong success.

Transcendence is garnering superlative reviews from diverse quarters. Filmmaker David Lynch calls it 'the best ever book on Transcendental Meditation: accessible and substantive, engaging and scientific, practical and profound. A very enjoyable read that can change your life, for good.'

''Whether your troubles are deep or you simply know life could be better and healthier, read this book.'' — Candy Crowley, CNN anchor

''Dr. Norman Rosenthal's Transcendence: Healing and Transformation through 
Transcendental Meditation is a profoundly important book about a topic that you need to know a lot more about. . . . Dr. Rosenthal is one of those rare professionals who is able to mix authority and accuracy with riveting stories that read like a novel. In Transcendence, he has given us all a gift that will enlighten, entertain, and perhaps even transform.'' —Mehmet Oz, M.D., Emmy Award-winning host of The Dr Oz Show and Vice Chairman and Professor of Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University.
