The noted research psychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author explores how Transcendental Meditation permanently alters your daily consciousness, resulting in greater productivity, emotional resilience, and aptitude for success.
Most of us believe that we live in only three states of consciousness: wakefulness, sleep, and dreaming. But there is so much more. In Super Mind, clinical psychiatrist and bestselling author Norman E. Rosenthal, MD, shows how the incredibly simple daily practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) can permanently alter your state of mind during the routine hours of waking life - placing you into a super-mind state of "cosmic consciousness" where you consistently perform at peak aptitude.
In his most ambitious book yet, Rosenthal shows how TM is more than a tool for destressing or for general wellness. It is a gateway to functioning physically, emotionally, and intellectually at levels we never knew we could attain. Written in Rosenthal's trademark style of restraint and intellectual carefulness, Super Mind explores how we can aspire to so much more than we ever thought possible.

I am a fan of meditation including transcendental meditation. I thought I could learn something from this book. Alas, to my disappointment this book is simply an exercise in name dropping of famous or accomplished people who use TM. You can get a better understanding of that by seeing the same people talk TM on you tube. Almost all of the research presented is based on subjective responses to questionnaires. While the author admits his bias he carefully choses examples that favor TM and goes so far as rigging the game by the examples he choses for other forms of meditation. I repeatedly found myself annoyed to disraction by such a thinly hidden agenda. If audible would allow it I would give it a zero rating.
After starting TM just a few days prior to downloading the book, I was anxious to have additional insight. The audio book was enjoyable and I'm very pleased with my purchase. The various accounts from Dr. Norman Rosenthal's experiences himself with TM and of some of his practicing colleagues was fascinating. After listening to the book, it further solidified my belief in TM and I even sent it to several friends I thought may benefit from listening to it. I highly recommend it to anyone considering TM.
This is an infomercial - not a book. Please share with your readers ahead of time that they will not be learning the practice. This felt misleading. I am still interested in finding a teacher but had no idea that this was not shared at all until hours in to the book.
Change the title to "Testimonials: The big book of TM Anecdotes." Or write something actually instructional.
That seems unlikely
Not sure anyone could make that much testimonial interesting, but I found the reader tedious.
What a waste of money... This book is just as useless as Transcendence... No instruction on meditation... Just stories on how others benefit from meditation...
