If you're a fan of Mr Tolle's books you will love this. Even in silence Eckhart teaches you peace. One of the most charming things about this book is Eckhart's humor. He makes you laugh and he makes you STOP thinking.;)
Since I'm a Tolle fan my opinion will be a bit biased as I feel all his books are worth a read/listen. I love his voice. He's soothing. It's like meditation.
I ranks at the top.
The entire story. It's life changing, thought provoking and difficult to put into words. I know I will listen to both parts,,, probably forever over and over because it is that deep.
His melodic voice and clear and concise explanations.
Yes. Some laughing no crying.
I'm halfway through this and while i enjoy some of the stuff he has to say. Every second sentence he makes himself laugh. Example Him: "When something bad happens your ego looks for someone to blame" /laughter and crowd laughs even harder Me: /scratching my head in confusion cause i don't understand why he is laughing.
There is also one member of the crowd who has a very annoying laugh. I would love if someone did a version where his and the crowds laughter is edited out
I love Eckhart's teachings and thoughts. This book was excellent for that, a little deep for me at times, but worth it. Yes, there was VERY annoying background breathing and laughter as others have pointed out. I have listened to this a number of times and do get more out of it each time (as I do most audibles). The questions at the end were useless for me, but that is for me, maybe you will get something out of them. Do purchase it.
I love Eckhart, if u like him at all, do yourself a favor and continue to experience his knowledge and insight.
Hearing Tolle talk is a meditation in itself. This audio book is to be experienced, not merely for the sake of listening to words and gathering information. I listen to it over and over again and enjoy the experience every time.
Absolutely the best I've heard yet. There is so much to learn in this series. I've listened to several of his lectures and his series on Oprah and I thought this was the best one yet. Other reviewers have commented on an audience member laughing too much, however I didn't notice it as too much, too often or out of place. There were several points that were hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud along with Eckhart and the audience. Excellent work!
This lecture series has been life changing for me; with instruction for living a life not based on mind thought but with present awakened awareness which observes the mind. As for the mentioned laughing audience member; that is one funny laugh and it had me laughing too!
