Read Super Mind: How to Boost Performance and Live a Richer and Happier Life Through Transcendental Meditation Online Free - The noted research psychiatrist and New York Times-bestselling 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, M.D., shows how the incredibly simple daily practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) can permanently improve your state of mind during the routine hours of waking life--placing you into a super-mind state of consciousness where you consistently perform at peak aptitude.
In his most ambitious and practical 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.

Although I absolutely believe in the value of meditation, this book was pretty unsatisfying. Except for the MRI/brain activity studies, I didn't find it especially convincing. I quit reading at about the 75% mark. Here are some reasons why:

So before we talk about this book, we need to talk a bit first about the subject of "transcendental" meditation...
As regular readers know, I've been meditating daily now for around two years, in my case a very atheistic, Western-friendly style of meditation in which you concentrate on your breath...

This is not a "how-to" book but more of why do TM and why you need to spend a not insignificant amount of money to learn how to do it. Maybe one day but not for me now.

The book is really just a long list of examples of the benefits of TM meditation. While I found it somewhat inspiring, there really isn't any instruction or "how to" achieve these benefits other than telling the reader to go and meditate.

Just a long commercial for TM. You'll not learn TM from this book. Apparently the only way to enlightenment costs four days and about a thousand dollars. I'm going back to Mindfulness. At least it's free.
(Gave an extra star because I used to audiobook version. I love Dan Woren!)

Interesting, but I'm not paying $2-3,000 to learn the "proper" way of doing it.

Interesting pitch for transcendental meditation as a way to improve one's life. Filled with anecdotes and stories of people who have used the technique and achieved great success in life. Doesn't explain how to practice TM, but contains a lot of references and resources for people interested in t...

Describes many people's experiences with TM. Not really a how to. Seemed like the whole book was one big ad with some scientific findings sprinkled in.
