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.

    "Utter garbage!"

    Total waste of a credit. As has been said by some, this is a mumbo jumbo rehash of other philosophical rubbish not a "new" way of life at all. The droning monotone of the author doesn't help either - AVOID!

    "Interesting book, but the narration held me back"
    What did you love best about The Power of Now?

    I think a lot of the book was interesting.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Whatever"
    Would you listen to The Power of Now again? Why?

    Possibly, I think the philosophy contains some valuable insights, but spiritual enlightenment? If Mr. Tolle is happy, I'm happy for him.


    Has The Power of Now turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration is fine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    There's no place like home.

    "The Power of Now"

    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.

    "Thought provoking but monotonous"

    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.

    "The best audio book I've read to date"

    This is one of the most helpful books I have ever read.

    Reading it could be the best use of your current now.

    "Do NOT buy this book, power of now"

    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.

    "OK"

    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.
