I loved paper book. I have small problem with this audio book- the voice too much meditative, almost no emotion and kind of boring, hard to listen in long time period.
I expect little more uplifting voice from the book.
I love book, overall concept. Thank you so much!
voice, it feel too computerized, I listen Tolle on youtube he is more fun and livable there
Personally yes because I am always on the go and I find it difficult to find time to sit down and relax and read.
Letting the past go... Live in the moment... the past can be crippling.
Yes, the book is how I want to live my life. Stop thinking about the past because for me, it is hurtful and painful ~ you cannot change it! Stop sharing your "victim" stories and try not to think about the future, it can make you extremely anxious, and, it may never come! Enjoy the moment!
I continually listen to this book over and over to help me stay in the now... stop daydreaming and thinking about the past and or future...
I have been listening snippets of Eckhart for almost a year. This book puts all his teachings into one book. The question and answer format is fantastic. He explains all the teachings slowly and methodically.
It reaffirmed my belief to stay in the present but did not explain spirituality well. The author talked in circles. The format was to answer structured questions but the answers never seemed to come! This book could have been shortened dramatically and gotten the same point across.
Shortened it and not talk in circles.
The ideas are helpful as self-help but not spiritual enlightenment.
Great book! This book has the power to transform your life.
His voice connects you with stillness.
No, it should not be rushed.
Life is good - ALL the time!
I would consider the audio edition of The Power of Now to be better than the print version because reading it was so slow it really had no life. To hear the question-answer production made it very interesting and easy to follow. I was hooked and listened to the entire book in one sitting.
I liked Tolle's approach to describing The Power of Now. He made no apology when the questions came from a foundation of confusion. Rather, he redirected the focus back to "the now," and gave me a whole new perspective on mindfulness and personal responsibility.
I was not thrilled with the long monologues by Tolle. He has a monotone quality to his voice, which came dangerously close to droning. However, he knows his own material best, and it was only a couple sentences before I was excited about what I was hearing.
There was not one particular moment in the book that moved me. The entire body of the book is so valuable, so insightful, so eye-opening that I cannot pick one moment.
This is a book that I will read (on paper) and have read to me (by Audible) over and over again. It has become a staple in my spiritual library.
Please read and listen ! Let's not suffer from a lack of knowledge !
To realize everything is good.
Sitting on park benches for 2 years.
Yes. To understand I am an extension of God doing His work in the universe.
If you read only one book ever, read this one.
This is one of the most powerful, spiritual and encouraging, books I have read and listened. Tolle is a good narrator (not to everyone’s taste though) but what he teaches is worth listening every line of it. This book has to be read more than twice.
Most powerful line: "You can't fight darkness with darkness" and continues you have to “bring in the light” and this says it all.

very calming read.
yes but it requires to digest, I listened for about 30 minutes per day till I was done, always looked forward to hearing more. still wanting more but it is what it is and I must continue to learn that.
this is a Must Read, Must Hear, do it. And if you're married, listen with your spouse, good conversation starters for a spiritual couple!
Useful. Inspiring. Grounding.
Can't really compare the book to another author's book. However, the author reminds me of Byron Katie. Both authors project peace and teach that thoughts are tricky and not to be taken seriously. He also reminds me of Deepak Chopra and his teachings about "watching the thinker."
He speaks in a slow "mindful" manner. Better to listen to while walking. His voice is soothing and can lull one into sleep.
I related to the activation of the "pain body."
Will listen to this book over and over. Can't absorb it all in one reading.
