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.

    "Mind=BLOWN"

    By far the most empowering, life-affirming, transcendental material I've ever experienced. I only wish I had known about it sooner, the lessons within could have saved me from years of needless suffering. If you've ever felt alone, abandoned in the meaningless void of existence, searching for purpose or a shred of genuine connection, do yourself a favor and get this book!

    "Very useful"

    I enjoyed it so much I'm going to listen to it through a second time immediately. I found it very useful for my everyday life and can feel a difference already.

    "This audiobook is actually terrible"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I honestly don't know. I've studied Buddhism, and that's sort of the baseline of this book, but if you know even the first 2 hours worth of Buddhism, Eckhart comes off as a jackass and not a buddhist. If you're a Christian, you could be turned off by the fact that he is not a Christian. If you're atheist, there is a lot of circular thinking that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, so if you want a laugh, it's probably there.

    Really, I could only see someone enjoying this book ironically.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Eckhart Tolle again?

    NO. His voice is terrible, his tone is condescending and it's almost funny to listen to how highly he thinks of himself.

    For instance, this is what kind of things happen within the book:

    -Eckhart Tolle droning on about some sort of metaphysical stuff and how you think your mind is your body and your body is your mind but they're actually separate. You think time is real but it's not because only the body recognizes time but the mind doesn't. You think that your thoughts are real things but you're not because they're your mind and you are not a part of your mind even though your mind thinks you are.

    -Every time Eckhart says something that he thinks is "profound" there is a little bell ding, kind of like in Zen. Only when they do it, it means something totally different. It's almost like he thinks what he has said is so beautiful he needs to give you brain stimuli to MAKE SURE you know what he thinks is so important you'd have to be dumb to miss it.

    -A 'third party you'-character asks questions like "Hey, I have a job and a life, I can't just not think." to which Eckhart will reply with a condescending answer like you're an idiot because you don't understand his world and you live in a totally inferior world where 'jobs' and 'life' matter.

    The set up of this audiobook is so hilariously awkward and embarassing that I can't listen to it for more than 15 minutes without feeling embarassed I'm listening to it and turning it off. In that time, I'm unable to pick up any information because I'm so weirded out by the goofy format of the book.

    Plus his voice is annoying naturally, even if he dropped the weird style, it would still be annoying to listen to his weird accent with a constantly condescending tone.


    How could the performance have been better?

    First off, Eckhart needs to not read it for reasons mentioned above. Second, they need to reformat it because the current style is laughable. Third, about half the material could be cut because it doesn't say anything useful. You could argue that I 'just didn't understand' but it's quite hard when he spends the first half of the book telling you how dumb you are for living the way you do. God forbid we didn't all become self-help book writers.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Now?

    I would have cut the whole book. I don't know how this book got funded, to be quite honest.

    "no words can describe the value of this message."

    I listen to it over and over. the peace and joy we all 'seek' is inside us all the time, but it gets covered up by mental noise. this book will help you find the off button.
