August Book of the Month: Everything You Want to Know about TM

Cosimo's Book of the Month for August is our extremely popular Everything You Want to Know about TM--Including How to Do It, by John White. Wildly popular in the 1970s and '80s, Transcendental Meditation (TM) continues to be one of the most accessible forms of Eastern spiritual practice in the West. But does it live up to its hype? In this objective exploration of TM, consciousness researcher John White looks at what's billed as "a simple, natural, and effortless mental technique, practiced twenty minutes a day" and takes on its critics as well as its cheerleaders.

The book has received popular acclaim as well as criticism for its controversial subject matter. Comments from readers include:

"I applaud John White for writing this book and I enjoyed reading it very much. His critical writings about spirituality and the science of TM were very insightful and thought-provoking."
"This little book is the best book on Transcendental Meditation I have ever read... Read this book and you will have a balanced view of TM."

 "This book is unique in that unlike most books telling readers how great TM is, White gives the pros and cons of TM from every point of view... To me, everyone who wants to learn TM should read this book carefully."
Everything You Want to Know About TM is available as a paperback book and an ebook from Kindle and Nook.

John White is an internationally-known author in the fields of consciousness research and higher human development. He has published 15 books and his writing has appeared in publications in the United States and abroad. He has published three books with Cosimo, including A Practical Guide to Death and Dying and his children's story, The Christmas Mice
