“In the ongoing transmission of India’s practical wisdom to the West, nothing has had a bigger impact than Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his Transcendental Meditation. This engaging and comprehensive update of Jack Forem’s seminal book is well timed, as the knowledge it contains is vital in our stressed-out, plugged-in era.”
— Philip Goldberg, author of American Veda: From Emerson and the Beatles to Yoga and Meditation, How Indian Spirituality Changed the West

“As a rabbi and longtime practitioner of the TM program, I particularly appreciate the new chapter on Religion and Spirituality in Jack Forem’s book. Jack quotes Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s teaching that religions have ‘one common ground: that the light of God is kindled in each heart.’ This is what TM accomplished for me in my life. I never would have desired to become, nor would I have been able to succeed as a rabbi, without the spiritual awareness that the practice of TM awakened in me.”
— Alan Green, Senior Rabbi, Shaarey Zedek Synagogue, Winnipeg, Canada
“Many books have been written about the Transcendental Meditation technique and the array of benefits enjoyed by those who practice it. Jack Forem’s book stands out not only because it is eminently readable and entertaining, but because it is such a clear and comprehensive introduction to TM, the principles behind it, and the research demonstrating its effectiveness. It’s a joy to read and a breath of fresh air.
“In addition to delineating the value of TM for individuals, Forem explains cutting-edge, paradigm-shifting research showing that groups of people practicing TM together have significantly reduced tension and hostility in the environment. He argues persuasively that in TM, we have a technique to benefit the individual and at the same time generate harmony and reduce stress in society as a whole.
“This is a book to read and take to heart.”
— Gary P. Kaplan M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neurology, Hofstra University School of Medicine
“Jack Forem’s new book on Transcendental Meditation offers a wealth of research with real-world examples of how TM can increase personal and corporate success and effectiveness. This book offers numerous examples of how this simple technique has had a tremendous effect on people from all walks of life. I know it has helped me, my family, my company, and my clients.”
— Nancy Slomowitz, President & CEO, Executive Management Associates, Inc., author of Work Zone Madness! Surviving and Rising Above Workplace Dysfunction

If you've been on the fence about TM and would like to know the facts about it, this book will tell you all you want to know and more. It's very well written, easy to follow for anyone, and will help you make an informed decision. It's a great read!
TM is a life-changing/enhancing practice. I'm so happy I was led to it those many years ago, and will continue doing it as long as I'm still living on this planet.
Now Forem has come out with a new expanded and updated edition of his original book. I think it is wonderful that he has done so. Forem is an excellent teacher and writer. This book is so comprehensive, so well written, that anyone interested in TM would learn in an easy, balanced way all that is necessary to feel secure in starting its practice. For those already practicing TM, this book will have a refreshing influence and is well worth your time and attention.

while not revealing the personal instruction itself. In many ways this book provides more information that the info sessions at the TM Center. I plan to purchase additional copies of this book to give to friends and family who may be interested in this spiritual technology.
