This book is so stupid and horrible to listen to. Good example - the author quit his job, moved, and was floundering around. When he was totally broke, he won the lottery and things turned around for him.
Moral of the story is??? Play the Lotto?
I read "Power of Now" and this book has no less gravity. A simple and focused attempt at ambushing the disguised and dangerous ego that possesses many of us. I'm a healthier father and a more caring mate having read these books. To the author, thank you.
The audio version is especially powerful when listened to on walks among the people and the trees. A great companion indeed.
The worst narration I have ever put myself through. Authors are not always the best readers of their own work. The concepts introduced are pretty deep and an occasional pause to allow them to sink in would seem to be called for. But the author blows through so quickly that you don't even realize when one chapter ends and another begins. Read the book, it's well worth your time. But don't buy the audio unless you can find it narrated by a professional.
First....Eckhart Tolle is a fine reader and I love his tone, accent, and presence that he conveys. I'm listening to this in my car on a one hour commute and find my self fully immersed after one day. He draws from many areas of spirituality and explains things ins ways the not only make sense but are easy to try to do. I say 'try' because mindfulness of ones self is much easier said than done! Ahhh...the work never ends. That's ok.
This book is just not one you are going to be able to understand due to the author narrating it, with his low voice and very heavy accent. I tried turning it up, adjusting the tones, just a total waste of money.
I would have enjoyed the content I am sure but will learn that I must get the written version. I use audio during walks so I won't be able to do the written.
I don't know what's wrong with our world, I am not even sure that there is something wrong with it, but I always have the impression that something is wrong.
Tolle has managed to tackle this impression from a new angle, outside psychology, sociology and religion (although he uses religious texts to show us that he has not invented anything new), bringing a new convincing perspective to my view of the world.
Moreover, Tolle has succeeded in connecting some dots in the infinite complexity of life, which I had no idea that could possibly connect to each other.
It was hard to stick with this book because of the pace and accent of the narrator. I wish I could've enjoyed it more because of what I've heard about the book. But if you're really interested in reading this book, I don't think listening to this one is the way to go.
This man's voice is so void of passion and personality I just can't listen to it any longer.
I got through 2 hours in the car and felt myself falling to sleep.
I really enjoyed this audio book. I believe anyone can get something out of this book, its very enlightening information.
