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.

"One of the best books to come along in years. Every sentence rings with truth and power." (Deepak Chopra)
"A reminder to be truly present in our own lives and liberated from our past and future. It can transform your thinking." (O: The Oprah Magazine)
Absolutely yes. It's reaffirming to know that the NOW is all there is and will ever be. This is an audio book that you should always keep close to you as you go on living. We face many challenges in life, the Power of Now makes full sense of them.
It's logic and the power of the message. It all starts from within and it all ends there. The one thing every human on earth is searching for is closer to us than we really thought. Our inner most being is where everything happens and once we are in touch with it we have made a giant step towards God.
The voice and manner in which Eckhart Tolle delivers this audio book is hypnotizing. You can't escape the effects of the words on your mind and soul.
With every section you find points that almost seem to be one of your personal experiences. You can't help yourself from affirming those moments with a spontaneous spurt of a loud "YES". My advice to you when listening to this audio book is to be by yourself, as those kind of reactions to the words are guaranteed to attract attention.
I would recommend this book.
The bible, koran or any other spiritual book. Although this book deals with spiritual things in a down to earth way.
Very lazy sounding reading, one of the only things that really bugged me in this book
Great book to make all of us live in the now and not dream about the future until we pass away. A very great book.
His voice just puts me to sleep, and his accent makes it hard to understand. I wish there was a different narrator that is not the author!
The narration is horribly monotone and boring. both the author and the interviewer. I was interested in hearing this book but I cannot sit and listen to it for longer than a few minutes. I cannot rate the story because I cannot get into it.
Boring. He is bored and monotone. Doesn't sound enlightened at all. Depressed maybe.
All of them
I prefer audiobooks since I am a busy body. I can become enlightened while cleaning my house, cooking or crafting.

no characters other than you
Life transforming. It will either mean everything to you and change your life, or it will mean nothing. Take the chance. This book changed my life.
Probably not. There was some content that resonated with me, but not enough to recommend.
While much of the book resonated with me and contained, in my opinion, solid truths, there was simply too much far-reaching content that simply had no basis whatsoever except for the author's opinion. Tolle stated these opinions as absolute truths, but without any substantial backing. For example he would take verses from the bible and give his version of what they mean. That's fine....lots of biblical interpretations out there. His, however, were soooo obscure and far-fetched that you'd have to simply blindly believe that he had some direct-connect to the truth. Many didn't make much sense and I found myself thinking "how on earth did you interpret this verse to mean that?" I'm not a bible purest whatsoever, I just don't see how he can make the interpretation claims that he makes.
That said, there was certainly some very thought provoking and worthwhile content. For me, about 50% interesting, enjoyable and worth considering. The other 50% ho-hum to highly questionable.
Yes. Using a male and a female voice to ask questions is very distracting and breaks the sense of continuity in the philosophical presentation. Worst yet, the unnecessary, shocking rings that keep sounding throughout to separate sections. I found them to break my concentration and overly annoying.
Yes, only if the ding-dong sounds are eliminated .
Profound, life-changing philosophy
I could not make myself finish listening to the entire book because of how disturbing the intermittent ding-dong sounds were.
I purchased this audiobook to help me deal with my terrible life problems. The way the audio was presented made it impossible for me to benefit from this otherwise great book.
I loved paper book. I have small problem with this audio book- the voice too much meditative, almost no emotion and kind of boring, hard to listen in long time period.
I expect little more uplifting voice from the book.
I love book, overall concept. Thank you so much!
voice, it feel too computerized, I listen Tolle on youtube he is more fun and livable there
Personally yes because I am always on the go and I find it difficult to find time to sit down and relax and read.
Letting the past go... Live in the moment... the past can be crippling.
Yes, the book is how I want to live my life. Stop thinking about the past because for me, it is hurtful and painful ~ you cannot change it! Stop sharing your "victim" stories and try not to think about the future, it can make you extremely anxious, and, it may never come! Enjoy the moment!
I continually listen to this book over and over to help me stay in the now... stop daydreaming and thinking about the past and or future...
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
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'.
This makes you put everything into perspective, and I found it truly inspiring. I definitely will be getting some more of his stuff.
This audiobook is very deep. I do not think I would have been able to read it as a book as I would have found it very heavy going and I would have missed out.
Someone commented on the author's "monotone" voice but I think his voice is quite soothing to listen to. Its a voice who belongs to someone who is at peace with the world.
This book is a little gem and will teach you how to create space for yourself in our busy world.
"The Bible of All Self-Help Books"
If I could give something to every human being in this world it would be The Power of Now. Eckhart Tolle speaks with an authority that is so obviously from pure consciousness. I have many others in my collection, but this is the one I return to again and again. Without doubt, his words are divinely inspired.
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.
