Tom North is the author of True North — The Shocking Truth About "Yours, Mine and Ours." They appeared to be the blissful Beardsleys, the happily blended family — eight of Helen North's, ten of Frank Beardsley's, and two children from their union. A family so famous in America that Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda played the parents in the box office smash — Yours Mine and Ours. But they were anything from blissful; in fact they were the beaten and battered Beardsleys True North is much more than an inspiring and powerful account of a man who rose to success against all odds. It's a story of how Transcendental Meditation (TM) brought peace to Tom North and saved his life. It brings to light how effective meditation is as a means for healing trauma survivors and especially those who have endured any form of verbal, physical or sexual abuse.
