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.

This one I often hear again and again especially chapters 5,6,7. My mind stills down, start accepting the realities of the present moments and I use this as one good source to listen!. Great one, I recommend this and Power of Now always !!
Loved the book, love Eckhart. Some people may not enjoy his voice but if you have heard him speak it would be odd to hear someone else saying these words.
My problem with the audio book is how they break out the "chapters". It is no correlation to the written book and I cannot imagine why.
Great messages in the book, but quite frankly I thought this was a computer reading the book because it sounded so flat and artificial, which is distracting.
Read by someone who has a better (more engaging) speaking voice
Yes as the message is excellent
I will listen to it over and over in order to truly incorporate, integrate, and reflect the ideas of this book. I love that it was also read by Mr. Tolle. I believe I can thoroughly get the messages and ideas from the book because the author is reading it, and they know what they meant and wanted to express when writing the book.
I am my favorite character that needs to grow and change.

Really allowed myself to detach from the dramas of everyday life and enter into the world of the now. Had a profound shift on my consciousness and tied well into the teachings of other books like Think & Grow Rich - but from a welcomed different perspective.
I am never disappointed when listening or reading Eckhart Tolle..His voice is very relaxing and he gets to the point...he doesn't always say things that you want to hear, but after he says them, you can't dispute them...for me anyway...Eckhart just makes you stop and really think about life.....Living your life seems easier and makes a lot more sense... I find all his works incredible
A New Earth is a must read for all those interested in deepening an understanding of themselves. It is the blueprint for awakening to your life's purpose. The language is simple and inviting.
Enjoyed this listen. Great exercise in thought and awakening.
Great reminder to be in the now and the power of breath.
It's always nice to hear the authors words in their own voice.
