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 way to stop seeking and BE free now."

    Like most, I have suffered greatly during this incarnation. I have sought to find/liberate myself in countless ways, through physical possessions, accomplishments, relationships, philosophies, self help, spiritual seeking, affirmations and other ways, with nothing other than temporary relief to show of any of these.

    The information, and more important, the vibration that Eckhart Tolle brings forth, in this book and the others, as well as the many live recordings from his workshops, is of a purity, a simplicity and a depth that I have yet to knowingly encounter among humans.

    If you truly seek peace inside, look no further, you have found the way. Soak in this recording with your entire being.

    This was a really great book. I like the audio delivery the most because I can listen to it in the car (when my children aren't around so I can focus!).

    "When the student is ready the teacher arrives"

    I love Eckhart Tolle, I have learned so much from his teachings. I first listened to this book about 10 years ago and at that time I was not ready or able to listen. Now, I finally understand what I was missing. His teachings have changed my contentment in life and my acceptance of my life. He's helped me cope with all that seemed to be wrong.

    I eased into his teachings by first downloading the free podcast of the Oprah interview with Eckhart, going chapter by chapter through his book "The New Earth". It was a Webcast and people all over the world listened and called in with questions for Eckhart. Once I understood him, I was ready for this book and will continue to seek out his books and appearances. Oprah helped make Eckharts teachings more accessible for me and now his calm, peaceful delivery makes complete sense.

    If you are ready to look at your life from a different lens, these teachings can do that. It is not a story so I did not give that part a strong rating, but it is organized in magnificent fashion.

    "Soothing and timely reminder to slow down"

    I join all the other reviewers who have praised this audiobook. Eckhart Tolle's voice is soothing and his message is a reminder to take life one day at a time. Even if you're not "carrying around a lot of pain", which hopefully is most listeners, the overall theme of the book is a valuable perspective on how to live your life calmly.

    "Ground Breaking"
    What made the experience of listening to The Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    I wish I listened to this audio when I first heard of the book. I came to truly understand what "living in the now " actually is.It was something that I overlooked , never thought was really important. But it turned out to be the missing link that I was looking for in my personal development journey

    "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.

    "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.

    "A profound spiritual book by an enlightened master"

    There is a very good reason why this book/audiobook has sold millions and it is not because of clever publishing. Eckhart Tolle is one of the great living spiritual masters alive today. I have read probably 2000 books on spiritual life and been a transpersonal psychotherapist for 30 years, alongside practising meditation and yoga for 50 years.This short book is at the top. As a wise friend said to me "He speaks FROM the truth...not ABOUT the truth. He knows. You do not have to go far on the internet to find endless confirmations of what I am saying. It can be read/listened to indefinitely and every time it is fresh, because it is a transmission of truth, not ideas and theories about truth. It is also a manual on the path to enlightenment through the practice of presence ie. being here now His instructions are crystal clear. and you won't need an interpreter to know what he is saying and how to do it. It is Eckhart Tolle himself who reads the book. Very important as the vibration of truth is in his voice as well as his words. Worth its weight in platinum.

    "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'.

    "A Very Worthy Listen"

    This popularity of this title stirred my interest. A quick google search revealed a lot of people who found its contents to be life changing and I've since heard of some groups that meet regularly to discuss its content or "teachings". I was a little sceptical but curious none the less. Eckhart Tolle's voice is very mellow and soothing so it makes for easy listening. I like the way he has alternate voices posing questions on his teachings which he then responds to (though at one point in a somewhat frustrated/condescending manner - which I found rather hilarious given his calm demeanour) It gets a bit preachy in places with frequent references to god, and was a little bit far-fetched in other places. For the most part however I felt there was some very interesting ideas here that I could apply in some small way to my own life, such as letting go of past experiences through which you identify yourself with and focusing too much on a future that might never be. Although I loved his idea of relinquishing all time, even he admits himself that's its not very practical in today's world. Overall it made me feel grateful for the wonderfully imperfect circumstances which I find myself in right now - Cheers Eckhart!
