"Patti Montella was committed to changing her life in order to reach for the highest and the best. Through the guidance and teachings of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, she has experienced what it means to be transformed mentally and spiritually. She followed the path of compassion and kindness first to herself and then through her efforts to teach others. This required a holistic approach to living—spirit, mind, and body. Her testimony of her journey to wholeness will give you insights into your own personal journey. I recommend this book to all who are seekers of self-change."
—Dr. Barbara King, global spiritual leader
"It is possible to be vulnerable yet brave, joyful yet authentic, and intelligent yet innocent all at the same time? Yes, it is—and Patti Montella is proof! If you want to exhibit all of these characteristics yourself, do yourself a favor and read her excellent book, Becoming Unshakeable."
—Dr. Raj Raghunathan, Zale Centennial professor of business, McCombs School of Business, The University of Texas at Austin, author of If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy?
