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.

    "Wow"

    This book/audio book can be a life saver. I didnt realize how much of my life I was literally missing out on because of how much I was living in the past. Also realized that a lot of the pain in life is self imposed by our being too caught up in the past, and in the future. Absolutely amazing insights can be garnered from this work.

    "Mind Blowing"

    I have listened to this book repeatedly now for a couple of weeks. His wisdom around spirituality, psychology, philosophy etc speaks an absolute truth to every fiber of my being. This is the first book that has ever had such a profound effect on the way I view myself, life, happiness and we are all practicing exactly the things that keep us unconscious and unenlightened. Amazing book!

    "This Book Makes You Look at Life Differently!"

    I really enjoyed the book. It was recommended by my boss. This was my first audio book. It was easier than I thought to listen to.

    "The Power of Credulity"

    Nonsense through and through.....Is that my "pain Body" talking or is it my inner body...collective pain body. This book is loaded with world class bullshit. This book would be laughable if so many weren't taking it seriously.

    "Philosophy of Eckhart Tolle"

    After reading many of Eckhart Tolle books, I regard him a pure" prophet" of our times. His teachings are simple but deep rooted and share the wisdom of all spiritual philosophies known to mankind.. For me personally, the benefit I derive is that I can look at my own ego objectively. Every day life is simplified so much that I do not have conflict with the world anymore. I suggest this book to anyone seeking spiritual guidance.

    "Insightful points obscured by dogmatic approach"

    While the contents were had some great theories in some respects, the fact that any dissenting thoughts are dismissed because they must not be enlightened enough smacked of religious dogma. Very similar to a clergyman saying if someone has doubts about a teaching they must not have enough faith. Faith, enlightenment- they should be subject to questioning.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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 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.

    "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.

    "Couldn't finish it"
    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book because it is so badly read I couldn't finish it. I know its meant to be amazing, but I just didn't take in any of the information because of the narrator.

    "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.

    "Completely unlistenable"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Utter nonsense, give it a miss and use your credits on something else that's not total tosh.
