Russell Simmons, entrepreneur, co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, All Def Digital and bestselling author of Do You! and Super Rich, knows you can find those things through meditation. Phil Jackson, Oprah, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Jobs, David Lynch and more, have all found, as Russell has, SUCCESS THROUGH STILLNESS. 


First explaining how Transcendental meditation can help readers live a calmer, healthier, more mindful, spiritual and successful life, then explaining exactly how to meditate, including giving a mantra, Russell’s new book, SUCCESS THROUGH STILLNESS: Meditation Made Simple (Gotham Books, March 4, 2014, Hardcover, eBook) keeps all of the clutter at bay: Russell cuts to the chase and gives aspiring meditators only the information needed to get started.


SUCCESS THROUGH STILLNESS is the first step to get to a more mindful, and ultimately more successful life.
