Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D. talks about his book ''Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation'' Tuesday June 7, 2011 at 7PM (PST) on the Los Angeles radio program ''Center Stage with Mark Gordon''. Listen 'live' on 88.9 FM and at

''Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation'' 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.'' Cardiac surgeon and media personality Mehmet Oz calls Transcendence ''a profoundly important book . . . incredibly valuable.'' 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, high-caliber research and his own clinical experience, Rosenthal illustrates the value of TM in promoting cardiac health, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping people recover from drug and alcohol abuse. 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.

But Rosenthal emphasizes that TM can help even highly successful people to live fuller and richer lives. He illustrates this in interviews with celebrities such as Paul McCartney, Martin Scorsese, Russell Brand and Laura Dern, all of whom have practiced TM. 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.
