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.

    "Great book, but hurt my ears"
    If you could sum up The Power of Now in three words, what would they be?

    Uplifting, encouraging and enlightening.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eckhart Tolle?

    At first I had an issue with the narration because the voice was very hypnotic. It took me a while to be able to listen and remain alert. A soothing voice is ok, but not when there's so much to take in. Honestly, I almost kept falling asleep. It really took a while to build up tolerance and be able to follow along while remaining alert. And this is not to say it was boring — not at all, just very, very soothing, but not in a good way for the purpose at hand.


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

    Practically every sentence and every word.


    Any additional comments?

    While I appreciate the way the audiobook conveys the breaks and/or pauses between chapters or even within the chapters themselves (something I feel all audiobooks should have, by the way), the tone used to indicate these pauses is an extremely high pitched, echoing tone. It literally hurt my ears throughout the entire book. And it distracted a lot from whatever came after it (because it echoes in the background as the story continues). This is why the performance of this title gets only a one star. This is really a book best left to traditional reading and not listening to.

    "The most important message in the history of mankind"

    This book is astounding and the truth that emanates from it is undeniable. This book will change your life in an instant if you choose the now. I never write reviews but this book is that important for every single human on the planet to read/listen to. Listen for yourself and you will experience what I mean.

    "Powerful for anyone seeking enlightenment"

    A friend suggested this book to me and I procrastinated on picking it up but once I finally cracked it open I could not stop reading. This book gives detailed instructions on how to be aware and present in every moment of your life worth engaging. There are some groundbreaking concepts in here for me, including the idea of using the mind correctly and not always analyzing or problem solving just for the fun of it. This helped with my anxiety as I act as a "watcher" over my thoughts and definitely grounded me in my struggles with rejection and abandonment. I have this book 5 stars because it helped me see life differently. I hope someone else finds this to be their missing link to the puzzle of life and self awareness.

    "Life changing"

    It's like a guided meditation to truth. I have been on this path for a long time so chapter 9 and 10 were profound for me and where the dots were connected for me. Those most tired of this life are the closest to enlightenment. That revelation was gravity for me.

    "this book changed my life!"

    before I got this book, I thought life was about pleasure and fame and fortune. I tried drugs, sex, money and always ended up frustrated. now that I've listened to this audio again and again and again, I have the keys to true peace and contentment. it's who I am. I'm already a success. everyone already has what they are looking for because of who they are, not what they can gain. don't get me wrong, I'm still playing the game of life and working building my business and learning every day. But I know it's a game. it's like building castles in the sand. it's all going to be washed away, so let's just do it for the challenge and fun. let's find out our gifts and talents and share them with the world. this book is priceless! allot of people think this book doesn't make sense. they just weren't ready for it. for those that don't like his voice, who would you rather hear? someone who is enlightened, or someone who still has an ego? I like hearing Eckhart because his voice is full of that wonderful peaceful energy and you can tell he knows what he is talking about.

    "Amazing if you've begun to understand."

    An amazing man tells you the truth and reveals how to end your pain. If you've already glimpsed understanding, this book will show you how to grasp it. If you haven't, you may be like these fools calling it "mystical caca" or "psycho babble." I feel sorry for them. Eckhart lays it out very simply and yet they still don't understand. This book is a great guide to inner peace.
