Publisher's Summary

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. They can be used to bring you into the Now, the present moment, where problems do not exist. It is here you find your joy and are able to embrace your true self. It is here you discover that you are already complete and perfect.

Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language in a question and answer format. The words themselves are the signposts to guide you on your journey. There are new discoveries to be made along the way: you are not your mind, you can find your way out of psychological pain, authentic human power is found by surrendering to the Now. When you become fully present and accepting of what is, you open yourself to the transforming experience of The Power of Now.

    "The Power of Now"

    This book took me awhile to get through. I found I was thinking deep throughout this book. It seems to me that living in the now is not something I do like I would like to. I have been unaware of slipping into the past or future more than I would like. I will enjoy reading this book again.

    "Truly Transformational"

    "How will I know when I have surrendered? When you no longer need to ask the question."

    I have found it to be much more of a process than I wanted or liked, but I do find myself settling into "now" much more easily and frequently. There is nothing more beautiful yet simple. This book, among others, has been a "finger pointing to the moon" for me.

    "Life Changing"

    This audiobook was great and I genuinely consider it to be life changing. Tolle's teachings made me realise the root of my anxieties and hence unhappiness.
    He gets quite spiritual at times, which doesn't particularly appeal to me, but the overall message is a wonderful one and has made me appreciate 'the now'.

    "Buy it NOW!"

    The incredible power of this book stems from the simplicity of its teachings. Tolle presents a system so simple and undebiably true that it cannot help but work. I am not so sure I would have taken so much from the written book, so the audiobook is definitely the recommended format to absorb this timeless teaching. If you do only one thing to improve your life, then make that reading this book.

    "Present Moment Awareness"

    This book opens the door and gives a glimpse of a world I had not experienced since childhood. That of living in the present moment. A beautiful but very indepth read.

    "I was sceptical"

    Initially not sure whether this would be any good and thought maybe other reviewers were desperately looking for something that the rest of us knew was a bit 1960's and zen like. Maybe they are - maybe not. I don't think I am but I did find this surprisingly inciteful and useful. Lots of really down to earth good advice and good philosophical (and dare I say it) spiritiual food for thought. But to reiterate: useful and pragmatic from the start. Have listened to some bits a few times as it seems to make me think of things slightly differently each time.

    "I now live in the present"
    Would you listen to The Power of Now again? Why?

    This was recommended to me as a book I should read. I am glad I did.
    The book explains how we rush about in our daily lives, earning money and supposedly living. But how often do you sit and think about what you are doing 'now'.
    I have learned to enjoy living in the 'now'
    To listen to the sounds of nature and actually see nature growing.
    There is so much beauty around us.
    I would listen to the book again, if only to remind me, if I should forget, to live in the 'now'


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Power of Now?

    The most memorable part was actually realising that I can listen and be in the present and it is peaceful and calm.


    What about Eckhart Tolle’s performance did you like?

    Eckhart's voice is calming. He pauses several times to allow you to take in what he is saying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I listened to this book in 2 days. When the author told me to enjoy the moment, to listen, feel and taste the now, I felt that my life is suddenly going to be richer in experiences.
    This has proved to be so in many experiences since.

    "Find TRUE & PERMANENT HAPPINESS - Amazing book"

    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the author for producing this book, an amazing, truly life changing experience. I recommend listening to this title in small chunks to really take in the PEARLS of WISDOM. Free yourself from your mind, find your inner happiness.

    "Eckhart Tolle"

    Eckhart Tolle is an extremely inspiring man. I love this book and his other books also. His ideas are great and having implemented some of them already in daily life I feel a lot more positive than I have in the past. Releasing how far away we are from living life like we should in order to be happy and healthy is amazing. I'm not sure I could dive in like the author did and live happily homeless but I have definitely taken as much of his advice as I can. My only slight issue is that his voice is very calming and hypnotic to the point that I found myself getting a little sleepy while listening but that can also be reviewed as positive because he is very easy to listen to. I would definitely recommend this book.

    "Fascinating calming experience!"

    I bought this book to listen to whilst on holiday and am so pleased I did. It is the first book of this nature I have listened to and what a life changing experience... You need to listen with an open mind and take what you want/ need. It has helped me understand the power of being in the present. Listen and try for yourself! I intend to buy another of his books next :)

    "New-age drivel"

    Perhaps I was under a misapprehension when I bought this book - I was expecting something about meditation and the philosophy of living in the present.

    Sadly, it turned out to be pseudo-religious with an author that claims lots of answers but can substantiate none of it. He answers with generalisations (the best one was where a voice says something like "Are any of your claims proven?" and Tolle replies with "Do it, and you yourself will be the evidence)", and when he started banging on about "energy fields", "life energy", "energy polarity", and how women feel pain because of the rape and subjugation of previous generations, I was just laughing at the stupidity.

    Now, the one useful point here is the idea of living in the present and not dwelling too much on the future or the past. I really hoped this would elaborate on that area, but to be honest it didn't really move on after the first few chapters.

    The performance is ok - Tolle has a calm, steady tone although they have put a bit of an echo on the sound, so it sounds like he's trying to hypnotise you. There is an annoying cymbal that is meant to break the chapters but just sounds a bit silly to me.

    So in conclusion, I bought this based on the other rave reviews. I guess others must have a very different view on the subject. Maybe if you want to believe this stuff and don't require real evidence or substance and are happy to trust people on the basis that they claim to know, then you might get on fine with this. Personally I am disappointed - there may be some useful stuff here but it gets drowned out by the unsubstantiated claims.

    "Incredible and life-changing"

    This book is unbelievable. Eckhart Tolle's words resonated so deeply with many of my own experiences and difficult times. He makes life seem so simple and straightforward somehow. This book is very empowering, uplifting and has real power to change lives... I plan to listen to it at least once a month to remind myself about all that is wonderful about life and the human condition. I just can't recommend it highly enough.
