    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book to use as a refresher for the power of now or as a introduction. If this is your first Eckhart Tolle book then I think it is a great book to see if your ready for his teachings. You will either feel the desire to know more or you will not. If you want to jump in head first then read, the power of now first and use this as a refresher.

    Story
    "One book to read in different times of life"
    What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    As any good book on self knowledge, this one has short passages of tremendous depth. Repetition is essential to capture these core concepts due to a important fact described by the book: rarely we can listen without any kind of internal noise or mental process. In my case I listen one chapter several times and always find "new" passages.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Practicing the Power of Now?

    There are quite a few. One interest thing is to discover that you have not really listened to it and everytime you revisit a chapter there are parts that seem brand new.


    What does Eckhart Tolle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's about the media, the channel. Eckhart's voice and tone leads to a more concentrated listening. Some sentences are subtlely emphasized and the understanding varies with that.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    We are always attracted to mental projections and live most of our time in toxic states. An educated mind opens way to the now.

    "good but a bit of a repetition"

    I love Eckhart Tolle's books, but having read the Power of now and A New Earth I found some of this things wore pure repetition of earlier books, but still his words and the way he says them bring me a big sense of calmness and peace

    Story
    "Cogent book goes right to the essence of our task"
    What made the experience of listening to Practicing the Power of Now the most enjoyable?

    Tolle's insights are crisply articulated in this book. It is full of valuable practices to suit many different situations, moods, etc.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tolle is the clearest and most accessible person speaking about - and perhaps ever to speak about - the importance of presence, for individuals but also the world.


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

    I wept a few times, as I was completely taken by the profundity of what he is sharing.

    Story
    "Lucid, compassionate, freeing"

    Tolle iiuminates gently and clearly the sense that we all have of what Aristotle refers to as the Prime Mover and Tolle refers to as Being. I'm particularly taken by his concept of the thinker as an egoic function identified with the past and the present AND resistant to the NOW. Worth reading and studying again and again for the ways in which Tolle brings the spiritual life alive in everyday life. I've looked a long time for a teacher like Tolle.

    "Life changing!"

    I have been listening to this book for a year and learn something new each time. When I follow his advice I'm at peace. True peace. But I have to practice daily or I return to my chronic negative way of thinking.

    Story
    "Life-changer"
    Would you listen to Practicing the Power of Now again? Why?

    If you've already read "The Power of Now" there may not be a need to read this one, but I'm glad I read both to fully grasp Tolle's ideas and plant them firmly in my mind.

    I am a changed person thanks to this book, I now view pain and discomfort as a means for growth, I am much more mindful in my daily life and especially during disagreements which results in faster healing and a closer connection with my loved ones.
