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)
I think a lot of the book was interesting.
The narration was the really weak point of the book for me. I understand the narrator wrote the book and is a spiritual teacher, but the slow, monotone pace of the narration was brutal to me. I usually listen either when I'm jogging or before going to bed. I rarely have a problem with my mind wandering with an audiobook, but I would constantly have to bring myself back to reality.
I think I might buy the book and read it because the content did seem interesting, but I do encourage people to listen to the sample before buying to decide if you really want to listen to that style of narration.
I don't normally write reviews, but I wrote this one strictly to encourage people to listen to the sample narration before deciding whether to get the audio version of this book or another version
Possibly, I think the philosophy contains some valuable insights, but spiritual enlightenment? If Mr. Tolle is happy, I'm happy for him.
The narration is fine.
There's no place like home.
This book will change your life… anyone who doesn’t think this is an incredible book just couldn’t comprehend Eckhart Tolle message. This is a MUST READ!!!!!
This is a truly wonderful book. The format, however does not allow listening by chapter or any other small segments, making it a very unweildy 7.5 hours of listening.
I did find this book to be "thought provoking" (dare I admit this after reading the book...), but challenging to get through because of the monotonous repetition of NOW, NOW, NOW. At times I felt like I was listening to the old 3-Stooges (sp?) parity about who is on first, what's on second, etc. It does feel like a good concept, and I will probably listen to it again to see if I can get more out of it on the second time through.
Don't throw your money away. The book's impossible to listen to thanks to the horrible author who is also a lousy narrator. In the introduction he doesn't mind telling us how he came to the realization of his "philosophy": he was deeply depressed and close to suicide when he decided to break with everything, even with himself, to come out of it(!). If you don't want to have serious problems don't "help" yourself with his advice. It's unbeleivable how this book made it so far. Thanks.
I thought I would enjoy this book but it put me to sleep and when it didn't I wanted to cry it was so saddening. Yuk.
I am going to read the 4 agreements.
Holy cow, that is the first and last time I take advice from Oprah's reading list! What a collossal waist of 7hrs and 39mins...! I found both the narrator and the content exceptionally bad.
