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 powerful insight for a more aware life"

    loves it. I was able to see where I had issues and begin to release those areas. I am more aware of being present and effortlessly finding peace.

    "Powerful"

    I read this book by Tolle after reading 10% Happier by Dan Harris. As the fruit of reading it, I experienced my first full week of conscious awareness and was finally free from over thinking. I also experienced grace that cleared obstacles from my path while running my errands during the weekends. I am grateful that I finally found the antidote to self sabotage to life. Thank you, Eckhart Tolle.

    "Mind Blowing!!! A Must Read for Everyone!"

    I could write about everything I learned and what I loved the most, but I think it would be more fitting to ask a question to whom ever reads this review...
    Are you truly awake? Do you want understanding about what you feel and why you feel the way you do?
    After finishing this book I now truly understand how deeply I was sleeping and how I have robbed myself from truly living! I now write this post more awake than I have ever been... Thank you!

    To your Awakening! Be open minded and enjoy the ride. You will not be disappointed.

    "Great find!"

    A friend of mine recommended this book and I am so glad I looked it up. I had heard many negative things about Eckhart's teachings a while ago, but I found his work fascinating. These are important life lessons.

    "Eloquently told"

    The narrative met my expectation & exceeded further.
    Actually living in the now and the immensity of that is expressed in simple easily understandable words.

    "Meditative experience"

    At the beginning, it was difficult to concentrate on this audiobook. But once I grasped the basic concept of being present, I began to really enjoy the meditative experience of Tolle's narration and use some simple techniques in my daily life. A worthy listen for any student of life.

    "listen to the preview"

    I see the irony in my review, but the insane slowness of the reader and exaggerated repetitions, makes me anything but more Zen. not worth a listen.

    "One of the most powerful book ever"

    I put this book in the top three of the most important books of my life journey.

    The authors almost mystical delivery can put some people off. However after years of studying zen meditation, this book helped to connect many dots.

    I highly recommend it.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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'.

    "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"

    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.

    "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.
