No Description

Right now the Beatles are back with Ringo Starr getting knighted and rocking Radio City Music Hall in New York City, John Lennon getting his own USA postage stamp, Paul McCartney getting nearly 33 million views on YouTube for Carpool Karaoke, Paul doing a secret concert at Grand Central Station in New York, and Paul releasing his first album in 5 years, which hit #1 on Billboard’s chart. 

In November, there will be the re-release of the remix of The Beatles album (a.k.a. the “White Album.” So the Beatles are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago, when the “White Album” first appeared. That album was written in Rishikesh India under the influence of Maharishi. The book Maharishi & Me lifts the veil on the true meanings of these songs and the true story about the Beatles in India.

It is the only book in existence that provides career and job search strategy to individuals who work on Wall Street or want to. It is a best-seller in the careers category.

The reaction always: “Wow, do you mind if I ask you about the book?”
