RehashAug 01, 2006
By James F. Quaid
This book was nothing new only a rehash of previous books on TM.
The author was lacking in "Technique". The title suggested he was going to give you the how to to TM; however, he obliquely suggest signing up for the TM sessions at about $1,500.00.
This book was nothing but a sale's pitch to sign up for the TM course.

TM now costs $2,500.Nov 27, 2007
By M. Schroder
I was very interested in transcendental meditation after reading David Lynch's book, "Catching the Big Fish." After calling my local TM center, and after a few emails, it comes down to paying $2,500!!! There are plenty of free meditation classes, which I am going to take instead of paying this shameful sum. Also, "Meditation for Dummies" is a great book to compliment any beginner.

Good message but no technique here, you'll need more than a few bucks.Jul 04, 2009
By Steven J. Turner
I gave this 2 stars because the essence of the message of TM is a good one, and the technique (although not included in this book) I believe is a good one for some. It didn't agree with me but I meditate in a very similar way where I watch my thoughts for a while and then let the technique go. It loses three stars because the whole TM movement do themselves a great disservice by charging so much for courses.
May I recommend checking out True Meditation by Adyashanti. You get a book and cd with guided meditations and he explains what meditation is in it's purest form. His message rings so true for me. It's essentially the same message that TM teach at a fraction of the cost. Basically, begin with a technique then eventually let it go and with a bit of practice you can reach unconditioned consciousness within a few minutes of meditation with very little effort. Listen to the guided ones first then try on your own. Go for it, you'll feel so much better for it.

Does not teach the TM Technique!!!Feb 01, 2010
By Dr. Bob
"Dad & kids"
For the past few months i have been doing meditation daily. Since then i have been reading up on different forms of it. I ordered this book in order to learn about the TM technique, but it fails to teach it. In the chapter about the technique all it said was what the technique does, then at the end of the chapter, it says, the tm technique can only be tought by a practitioner and cannot be written down, therefore enroll in a tm program asap and buy a mantra, whoopie! THIS WHOLE TM ORGANIZATION IS A SCAM! if it were truly what Maharishi wanted, it probably would not be so, but all this book really is just an advertisement, a long brochure on why one should study tm. I would not recommend reading it.
