    Winner of the 2010 COSTA Biography Award. A total of 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox: potter Edmund de Waal was entranced when he first encountered the collection in the Tokyo apartment of his Great Uncle Iggie. Later, when Edmund inherited the ‘netsuke’, they unlocked a story far larger than he could ever have imagined.…

    Story

    de Waal says "I was a potter who wrote books no one read"and "the moment when I knew I could write was with the Vienna chapters."
    In the early part of this book,I asked whether I wanted to hear this detailed account of his forebears in Paris in the 1800s and these netsuke that they acquired but it was being so well read I was carried along into this moving & poignant account of the path through Paris to Vienna and then expulsion in World War 2 by Hitler . This path takes these netsuke to Japan and then to their now life with de Waal's family in England.Go with them.

    In this original audiobook, bestselling author Eckhart Tolle continues to teach us how to let go of the past and future to live in the now. Tolle urges us to shed our mind-based sense of self, enter the portals of the eternal present, and live vividly in the present moment.

    The first half is Tolle as good as always but the second part is music to meditate by.Nothing wrong with this but the prospective purchaser should be told.
