These short, clear entries are organized into ten topic clusters ranging from "Stillness and Silence" and "Beyond the Thinking Mind" to "Relationships" and "Suffering and the End of Suffering." Whether listened to individually or in topic clusters, these entries take on a rare transformative power.
While its message is broad and profound, Stillness Speaks is also highly practical. Eckhart Tolle shows us how to be with another in a relationship that can contain and weather all things, how to sit with a dying person, where to find wisdom, how to free ourselves of guilt, and how to control our constant stream of thoughts. Underneath the words, and in the spaces between them, we find the power of stillness, a vibrantly alive state existing only in the present moment. Stillness Speaks draws upon the essence of all spiritual traditions, offering a message that is both ancient and contemporary, filled with timely and powerful wisdom.

"Enticing spiritual insights that expound on inner stillness" (Amazon.com)
Listening to "Stillness Speaks", written and narrated by Eckhart Tolle was a wonderful experience. This audiobook actually gives you the chance to contemplate the key learnings in real time, by introducing the much needed silence during the audiobook. I needed to get used to that for a bit, but then found it to be an excellent way to "absorb" this book. Eckhart Tolle would probably tell me I still used too much cognitive reasoning instead of just "being", but hey, I am making progress. :-)
There are so many profound insights in this book, you have to listen to it for yourself. Multiple times.
Reading the book brings a gentle inner peace. Yes, I'd recommend this book to anyone.
I've listened to the Power of Now and A new Earth. This audiobook has longer pauses and a little boring.
Reading the book is better.
Here and now
This book is really slow, but that's the point, to slow the mind, to awaken the stillness inside you. I wouldn't buy this book as your first Eckhart Tolle book. As always Eckhart doesn't disappoint.

Write better questions!!!!!!!!
A soothing philosophic lullaby. Drop the needle anywhere and press pause at any time.
The space between the words.
All of them.
I really liked the principles Eckhart discusses. I love the way he summed it all up in chapter 1 and even mentioned the rest of the book is for those who still need more examples. You could just read/listen to Chpater 1 and that's the whole book!
Practicing stillness more often; being in silence is extremely important even if you don't subscribe to his teaching.
Because of who he is and what he is teaching, some may think the reading a bit on the slow side, but I thought it added dimension to the book. That's all part of the principles he's trying to get across.
