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.

    "Profound and enlightening"

    Eckhart has a voice that is pure heaven to listen to. His message will bring peace to anyone, no matter what your circumstances. Since I have listened to numerous recordings of his work, I would recommend The Findhorn Retreat, Stillness Speaks, Living a Life of Inner Peace before this one. I found this one exceptional of course, but very heavy in concept. A new listener needs something much shorter so they can aquire the peace necessary before Now.

    "A Step Closer to Enlightenment"

    Few books change your life and thinking as much as this one will. This book was amazing. It presents concepts that have been hinted at by other authors, teachers and philosophers but are presented here in a unique way. The logic is sound. Because of the depth of the content it is best to listen, stop and absorb what is being said. Think about and feel what he is saying and your soul will understand the truth. Though much of what he says is not to think or judge, I'm guessing most of us need to pass through this stage before we can open up into unconditional acceptance of the "now". Begin the journey here.

    I have already listened to it several times and am considering getting the written version - it is that good. This is a must-have for anyone who is seeking their own spiritual wholeness. If the tone of his voice or his manner of presentation bothers you that much, then perhaps you are not ready to hear and accept the substance.

    "LIFE ALTERING WITH A PLUS"

    I've meditated and read many books in 62 years and have never had so many positive changes from any as I have from "The Power of Now". If you're "ready", this book might be for you. I found it more effective as an audio book than when reading it. It also appealed more to me than Byron Katie.

    "The voice in your head is not you!"

    This is a FANTASTIC book. It is great for all spiritual and non spiritual people. I learned how to free my mind from noise. I now understand much more about the meaning of the sayings of Jesus than I ever have before. Many of the parables make sense now. Find fulfillment and understanding by listening to this with a quiet mind. Listen to at least the first chapter, you will either get it or you won't. Love it or hate it, freedom or slavery. It's kind of like The Matrix...

    "Life changing"

    As the spiritual elements of my life and existance have evoloved, I found this book to be probably one of the single most important tools in my journey. Erik's concepts while deep and sometimes hard to fully appricate, are non the less easy to grasp. As I listened to this book I found myself "finally understanding" some very important realizations that only Erik could fully put to words.

    "In Depth Explanations"

    Eckhart Tolle provides well thought out question/answer format for his perspective of "now" and presence of being. He provides answers with teachings from Buddha, Old Testatment, and many other followings. It is easy to follow the idea structure, and you will be filled with a new worth or be looking for it after.

    "The power of now"

    I have suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder for 26 years and have in the last ten years had an alcohol problem. I am not cured. However listening to this book and recently reading this book i have found alot that helps me now.
    I only hope that this book and teaching will help people as much as it is now helping me.

    "The Power of Transmission"

    Eckhart Tolle proves with this awesome work that the flowering of a new gnostic expression of reality is alive and present, here and now. As Jean Klein would say, "the perfume of the Source" exudes from every page of this book which has the power to transmit the underlying essence to the reader, beyond a simply intellectual understanding of the words. The Power of Now is the single most significant book I've ever read and has had a profound impact on daily life.

    "Humility ridden, self proclaimed prophet"

    To it's defense I must say I didn't finish it - but that said I can say I don't quit many books. The author (who also reads parts) is a previously depressed guy who one day hux-flux found enlightenment and then found his call to teach it. That's all good - but this guy is almost totally void of humility and is not teaching as much as tutoring. Early on he flips the secret of God, we have misused the phrase but he knows what it really is! On top of that he speaks with a voice someone would use if he wanted to portray a stereotypical Asian wise man on Saturday Night Live. Keep browsing past this one, there are a lot of better books on similar enough subjects. I want my credit back!

    "ideas good, audio experience monotonous"

    This seems almost like I listened in "random" mode. It does not flow. The ideas sometimes are clear, but they present little progression. Disappointing after listening and reading _A New Earth__. Sandy

    "Absolute must read to make sense of our mad world"

    Fantastic read
    I had an abusive child hood
    2 suicides in the family
    And as bad a divorce as you could get
    This book has helped me me understand why I have kept sane
    And helped me why I have felt as I understood it as
    Numb / Empty /
    I think all I have done to continue to live this wonderful life I have been given is to surrender to what is and the now
    And forgive the past

    An excellent narrative by a most calming and empathic author. If he can be it; I can be it too is how it left me feeling. Hopeful and playful at the same time. The Silent Witness in the Room.

    "Good start into the spirituality"

    Excellent book. A very good introduction into the spiritual domain. However, I keep going back to it and every time discovering more and more depth.

    Read very well, but I find the bell sounds between passages a little too loud - they startle me sometimes and ruin the flow.

    So glad I bought this, it's amazing as an audio as, for me, it resonates much deeper. Just listened twice pretty much back to back and hear something new each time. A real life changer!
