    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Before I buy it I read all reviews, and the negative ones made me hesitate. Finally I decided to try it - and I'm so glad I did!! This book is now my all time favorite - other spirituality, self-help or philosophy books seem so unenlightened, so incomplete. A must-read for anyone with big questions, big problems, or simply not 100% happy (does this leave any one of us out?) You will love this book - if a single book can lead you to enlightenment and can elevate your consiousness above everyday problems, negativity and conflicts, then this is it!

    Getting to Yes is a straightorward, universally applicable method for negotiating personal and professional disputes without getting taken -- and without getting angry. It offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict -- whether it involves parents and children, neighbors, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats.

    Overall

    If you want to learn more about negotiation from a theoretical or academic standpoint, then this is a great book. It presents principles and covers many different negotiation areas, including international conflicts, domestic disputes, market negotiations, etc. If, however, you have a specific problem in mind, e.g. marriage issues, negotiating for a better salary, or negotiating for buying a car, then this book is not very helpful. Your attention will start drifting away as instead of getting advice for your particular situation, you'll hear about terrorist negotiations, negotiations between nations, etc, with little (if any) applicability to your problem. I specifically bought this book hoping it would help me negotiate with car dealers, but this didn't happen. To solve a particular problem you'll be better off getting a book that deals directly with that problem, e.g. there are books that deal directly with marriage conflicts, work conflicts, etc.
