Over the past month, Dr Norman Rosenthal's new book, Transcendence: Healing and Transformation through Transcendental Meditation, has landed on the bestseller lists of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly.
Dr Rosenthal, a prominent Georgetown University Medical School psychiatrist and researcher, has also addressed large crowds of doctors and other professionals about the profound and practical value of the Transcendental Meditation program.

During his talk in June at American University in Washington, DC, Dr. Rosenthal described his motivation for writing this new book:
''For anxiety, for problems with alcohol abuse, for anger management problems, I saw people responding. I referred them to the local TM Center and they would respond. I would see it in my patients, I would see it in myself, and I would see it in my research. I (started to) feel like I would have to write a book on the subject, and I looked in the research literature and sure enough there were hundreds of publications, many of them in first-rate journals. The subject just captivated me and the result is the book, Transcendence.''
