Achieve higher consciousness.
Mr. Tolle answers pointed questions in each chapter.
I enjoyed hearing the voice and intonation of the author.
No. You need to digest this book over a period of days, or even weeks.

If there were concepts or doubts you had with A New Earth then The Power Of Now will definitely answer them. However it is a lot more painful to listen to than A New Earth due to the verbose nature of it. It is more like a huge FAQ.
it was a book I just couldn't stop listening to - it was inspiring and delivered in such an effective manner
Not often that a book gets my attention to this extent. Last one was a decade ago. This is a great, worthwhile listen. I was fascinated by the author and how he delivered his message - I have been thinking about it ever since. It will be a book I will return to frequently - you will not be disappointed.
This ranks hight in my top 10.
That he gives us a new perspective from which to look at life, or at least, one we should more often adopt.
Be in the now!
This is a timeless book, that always applies. I have read it multiple times. Highly, highly recommend it!
I enjoyed Tolle's narration and the ease with which he expressed the tools of the book.
The secret of the power of intention by Dr. Wayne Dwyer. It gives the power of the brain a little more relevance and control and is a bit more self motivating and inspirational.
the whole book was awesome and enlightening
read this book and then practice what it teaches EVERYDAY!!
Yes, there is a great deal of information to digest and things can be missed. Perhaps due to the fact that the concept shared with you is so mentally rattling that your still absorbing the after effects.
Provides a comprehensive expression of suffering.
I have listed to it 4 times and right down some of the quotes to help me when worried or feeling regret or self pity.
No I have never heard of this book. My brother found a hard copy on the ground and decided to give it a read.
Catching yourself before you complain. I practice this today. The need to make your inner being highly conscious and aware of negativity to avoid allowing it to spread to others and cause them pain.
The concept of the "Pain Body's" and how they attach themselves to our ego. A "Pain Body" can only exist if we feed it and acknowledge it. By observing it we can stop the pain and suffering both physically and emotionally within us.
Make sure to rewind it frequently
I was led to this book after listening to Oliver Burkeman's book 'The Antidote' and whilst I am totally inspired by Eckharts revelation about the self and the influence our mind has over our perception of the world and I have a real empathy with his teachings it is spoilt in a major way by the publishers complete loss of the point with her totally ego driven introduction. There is no need for the inane comments and it put me off for over a week before I continued listening only doing so because I had nothing to do. Everyone I recommended it to switched off after these comments with the feeling it was just another 60's all we need is love crap. PLEASE REMOVE IT. All that is needed is Eckharts introduction and an explanation of the format of Q & A. Otherwise the message is just lost before it starts as the open minded listener has been biased.
I am very happy that I continued to listen and I recommend the book but don't be put off by the first few minutes please, It is beautifully spoken by Eckhart and he draws you in with the real sincerity of his personality and conviction.
I would recommend listening to 'The Antidote' to Chapter 5 then break off to this book then back to the other.
The complete conviction and honesty expressed by the Author and the gentle way in which he expresses himself
His voice and warmth of calm teachings
Every moment that brought a new understanding building on the one before
REMOVE THE SPOKEN COMMENTS AT THE BEGINNING BY THE PUBLISHER PLEASE
I have listened & read to this book several times since 2001 when I first joined Audible and bought this book. It continues to guide and encourage me through life. Maybe he is picking up more of a North American English accent. This book is timeless. There are only a handful of books that I have listened to or read more than once. I also enjoyed Tolle's "Practing the Power of Now" and "The Art of Presence".
In the book, Eckhart answers questions that I might have asked, some down to earth answers backed with his own experience and that of known teachers.
Other similare books I recomment are Pema Chodron's "Getting Unstuck", Byron Katie's "Loving What Is", Adyashanti's "Falling Into Grace". They all deal with coming to terms with "what is" , self acceptance and acceptance of others, being in the now; of getting out of ego control and the "story" in your head. On a spiritual growth vein, I can also recommend Scott Peck's "The Road Less Traveled" which I have read 3 times since the 1980's and listened to twice.
He has a calm voice. It may take a little getting used to his monotone and accent, but the material is worth it. It is interesting that Eckhart's aceent seems less pronounced over the years since this audio book was produced. If you here him speak there is a noticable difference.
This book open up the secret that hide deep inside each of us. But please do not just read this book. Make a study of it and start living it. As the master said " to read a book about insaintness would not make you insaint."
There is no other book quiet like this one.
The whole book is a learning and discovering proses.
Truly from start to end.
If you looking forward to see the light you will find it in this book. Just practice what you preach
