Publisher's Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

    "Grace"

    This book changed my life in the darkest of days in 2007 struggling with a terrible drug addiction. Ten years later, At 48, I just celebrated my sons 7th birthday. I felt it was time to review and continue my journey. I can never be more grateful for anything in this world than the words on those pages. They were the beginning blocks of my new foundation, that glows brighter with each passing day.

    "A Fantastic Book For Seekers - Thank You Eckhart"

    A great book about a contemporary spirituality - that aligns quite nicely with psychology I might add. Best part is that it is narrated by the author. -yes, this book changed and helped me.

    "amazing book."

    I have listened to it over ten to fifteen times, and continue finding wisdom. Eckhart Tolle is A Gentle Leader who guides through the power of self-evident reality. not for a single moment do I need to suspend belief and unquestioningly accept a story that I am told. I think the beauty of this teaching is that as you look into yourself you discover a whole dimension of existence that was before buried by our busy lives and our constant doing. highly recommended!

    "Even better as a talking book"

    I loved this book when I was first give it in India by a wonderful and selfless man who thought I needed it (and I did). I will ever be in his debt. This book truly changed my life by changing the way I respond to the 'chattering' in my head. I hope it will do the same for you. Buy it and listen, but be warned, this is not a book for the car, I found my concentration was on the book and certainly not on the road.

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!

    "Mind-blowing Stuff"

    I must be honest here, I have spent my life so far being a bit of a cynic about anything that isnt completely factual with the exception of emotions and creativity, and am as such a total atheist. But I'd been having a hard time and was informed by reliable sources (ie. Russell Brand...) that this book is pretty remarkable.

    The opening lines of the book had my sighing and preparing myself to be utterly correct in my preconception that this would be a very hippie dippie book and would not on any level relate to me or my life, with its subject of the beauty of flowers. As beautiful as I agree flowers are I initially did not see how this was relevant.

    Throughout the course of this book I had several moments of pure clarity and a genuine challenge to my previously held beliefs that I found utterly fascinating. I am, probably to my detriment, a very opinionated person and I really appreciate and enjoy anything that legitimately changes my mind.

    This book changed my mind.

    If you can get past the connected one-ness of the universe dialogue and see the truth that lies between the lines of what I initially thought to be meaningless. At least to me anyway.

    And it genuinely helped. I'm not going to go into my personal issues in a book review, and everyone has their own intricately differing situations, but it was refreshing to see things from a new perspective and therapeutic to have the soothing voice of Eckhart reading his wisdom aloud, like my own personal therapist.

    What made the experience of listening to A New Earth the most enjoyable?

    The way it was told


    What other book might you compare A New Earth to, and why?

    I cannot compare it to any other book since it is unique.


    Which character – as performed by Eckhart Tolle – was your favourite?

    N/a


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me stronger as a person.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has enabled me to deal with some very difficult situations of late. Having bookmarked several areas in the book - I find myself returning back to those bookmarks and listening again and again to gather infinite wisdom!

    "hypnotic"
    Where does A New Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top


    What did you like best about this story?

    its message


    Have you listened to any of Eckhart Tolle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    No, it is ultimately repetitive so the message is best heard over multiple sittings


    Any additional comments?

    If everyone read this book and could understand what the author was trying to say, then the world would be a much happier and healthier place.

    "Pure Genius... but play it a double speed"

    Seriously I love the work of Eckhart Tolle but if I had listened at normal speed I would have had to give this a 1 star review. He speaks so painfully slowly and without any drama or character to his voice that it is almost impossible to listen.

    The audible app allows you to play back at different speeds and what do you know if you play him at 1.5x he sounds much better.
