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.

    "Wished it had a different narrator."

    Honestly I couldn't listen to this book because of the author's voice. Totally a personal preference but I found his voice super irritating, hard to follow, and overall distracting. So, I'm going to have to read the hard copy of this one.

    "Beautiful"

    Extremely peaceful read I really enjoyed listening to his voice he surely has come along way and is very insightful and informative about life and organizing thought and life performance really helps you appreciate life. Becoming thankful is key to happiness and peace. I really enjoyed The fact that he brought God into it in his own way and didn't make it sound religious but more of a relationship with the peacemaker, with the joy giver. Very informative read about controlling thoughts.

    "Its ok but nothing profound"

    I do not believe in an invisible sky daddy (god) Eckart references the bible (the same book that says slaves and rape of your enemies women is ok) way to much for me. He quotes jesus alot as well and he has this attitude of his way is THEE only way to achieve enlightenment.

    "Power of Now"

    Changed my way of thinking, and my life by helping me recognize the existence of the Spirit of Life in every single living thing. Seems easy to think, but along with it goes a reverence of life for each living thing.

    It also taught me the meaning of appreciating the moment and dealing with problems by asking God for guidance, doing what I can in the moment, and being at peace until the next momental opportunity.

    I listen to the different chapters every night before falling asleep, as there seem to be parts in chapters I missed the first time. It's a very intimate reading, unlike his other audios which take place in a group setting.

    Highly recommend this audio to anyone who wants to expand their spirituality and love for each moment of their life by learning to be present in each one.

    "Very philosophy heavy and non practical"

    Although I like the main concept of giving power to the present moment I found the book to be very abstract in several key areas, making it hard to learn how to actually live in the present moment.

    "Present Moment Awareness"

    This book opens the door and gives a glimpse of a world I had not experienced since childhood. That of living in the present moment. A beautiful but very indepth read.

    "Buy it NOW!"

    The incredible power of this book stems from the simplicity of its teachings. Tolle presents a system so simple and undebiably true that it cannot help but work. I am not so sure I would have taken so much from the written book, so the audiobook is definitely the recommended format to absorb this timeless teaching. If you do only one thing to improve your life, then make that reading this book.

    "I was sceptical"

    Initially not sure whether this would be any good and thought maybe other reviewers were desperately looking for something that the rest of us knew was a bit 1960's and zen like. Maybe they are - maybe not. I don't think I am but I did find this surprisingly inciteful and useful. Lots of really down to earth good advice and good philosophical (and dare I say it) spiritiual food for thought. But to reiterate: useful and pragmatic from the start. Have listened to some bits a few times as it seems to make me think of things slightly differently each time.

    "Life Changing"

    This audiobook was great and I genuinely consider it to be life changing. Tolle's teachings made me realise the root of my anxieties and hence unhappiness.
    He gets quite spiritual at times, which doesn't particularly appeal to me, but the overall message is a wonderful one and has made me appreciate 'the now'.

    "Find TRUE & PERMANENT HAPPINESS - Amazing book"

    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the author for producing this book, an amazing, truly life changing experience. I recommend listening to this title in small chunks to really take in the PEARLS of WISDOM. Free yourself from your mind, find your inner happiness.

    "I now live in the present"
    Would you listen to The Power of Now again? Why?

    This was recommended to me as a book I should read. I am glad I did.
    The book explains how we rush about in our daily lives, earning money and supposedly living. But how often do you sit and think about what you are doing 'now'.
    I have learned to enjoy living in the 'now'
    To listen to the sounds of nature and actually see nature growing.
    There is so much beauty around us.
    I would listen to the book again, if only to remind me, if I should forget, to live in the 'now'


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

    The most memorable part was actually realising that I can listen and be in the present and it is peaceful and calm.


    What about Eckhart Tolle’s performance did you like?

    Eckhart's voice is calming. He pauses several times to allow you to take in what he is saying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I listened to this book in 2 days. When the author told me to enjoy the moment, to listen, feel and taste the now, I felt that my life is suddenly going to be richer in experiences.
    This has proved to be so in many experiences since.

    "Eckhart Tolle"

    Eckhart Tolle is an extremely inspiring man. I love this book and his other books also. His ideas are great and having implemented some of them already in daily life I feel a lot more positive than I have in the past. Releasing how far away we are from living life like we should in order to be happy and healthy is amazing. I'm not sure I could dive in like the author did and live happily homeless but I have definitely taken as much of his advice as I can. My only slight issue is that his voice is very calming and hypnotic to the point that I found myself getting a little sleepy while listening but that can also be reviewed as positive because he is very easy to listen to. I would definitely recommend this book.

    "Very repetitive"

    I fell asleep listening to it often: soothing voice but boring. Also, I hated that he spoke of religion so much, this books assumes that the listener is a christian, if you are atheist or jewish or muslim or else, don't bother.

    "Trash talking, uses a lot of pop(hardly)-science language,"

    Using terms such as 'energy field' is just non existent, the message is great, being president is well presented but the language is very very hard to listen to at some point. Coming from a PHD physicist.
    Read with a grain of salt.
    Also a lot of religious 'propaganda' and preaching, which isn't good for a non-religious topic
