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.

    "The Power of NOW"

    " WE ARE A SLAVE TO WHAT WE ARE NOT AWARE OF" - this book helps us free ourselves from the slavery of UNCONSCIOUSNESS. I dont know how to put in words how thankful I am to come across this kind of book. For me... every word... full of substance...necessary for awakening.

    "Deep thought provoking"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only if I felt they were ready to hear this type of knowledge.


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

    I had several memorable moments that are specific to my life events, but they may not have meaning for some one else.


    What about Eckhart Tolle’s performance did you like?

    He has a wonderful soft soothing deep voice that was relaxing and easy to listen to.


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

    Goodness no! This book book has complex and deep thought provoking information that needs to be heard and digested in bits & pieces (at least for me anyway), plus it's 7 hours long, who has that kind of time?

    "Unbelievable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was one of my first contacts with Buddhist thought in such depth so for that reason I see it as ultimately the best beginner place there is.

    Since listening to Eckhart Tolle I have listened to many others and still feel Tolle broke through to me and felt like a great spring board into the ideas. However you get there, right?

    Peaceful and insightful his voice takes some getting used to but is worth it.


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

    I have to speed up his audio cause he can speak too slowly. 1.25

    "The voice in your head is not you!"

    This is a FANTASTIC book. It is great for all spiritual and non spiritual people. I learned how to free my mind from noise. I now understand much more about the meaning of the sayings of Jesus than I ever have before. Many of the parables make sense now. Find fulfillment and understanding by listening to this with a quiet mind. Listen to at least the first chapter, you will either get it or you won't. Love it or hate it, freedom or slavery. It's kind of like The Matrix...

    "Fundamental reading"

    The Power of Now
    Eckhart Tolle approaches the Sculpture of Enlightenment from a different side to most Spiritual Teachings and the approach introduces a simplicity which clears the path to Truth. The simplicity is not going to appeal to all because it does not entertain you mentally, in fact the approach works because it does just that - it stops you from THINKING and places you in BEING and from that platform comes your best chance at realising the Truth about Everything. The Audible book - narrated by Eckhart - has a meditative quality about it due to Eckhart's serenity, this alone will help illustrate what Eckhart is trying to communicate through the words. Highly recommended if you're serious about your search for Truth.

    "The power of now"

    I have suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder for 26 years and have in the last ten years had an alcohol problem. I am not cured. However listening to this book and recently reading this book i have found alot that helps me now.
    I only hope that this book and teaching will help people as much as it is now helping me.

    "In Depth Explanations"

    Eckhart Tolle provides well thought out question/answer format for his perspective of "now" and presence of being. He provides answers with teachings from Buddha, Old Testatment, and many other followings. It is easy to follow the idea structure, and you will be filled with a new worth or be looking for it after.

    "The Power of Transmission"

    Eckhart Tolle proves with this awesome work that the flowering of a new gnostic expression of reality is alive and present, here and now. As Jean Klein would say, "the perfume of the Source" exudes from every page of this book which has the power to transmit the underlying essence to the reader, beyond a simply intellectual understanding of the words. The Power of Now is the single most significant book I've ever read and has had a profound impact on daily life.

    "enlightening and comforting"

    I absolutely loved this. it is a 'must read' for anyone who has a sense that there is more to life than work or shopping. Tolle's voice is hypnotically calm and I wanted to say 'yes' to everything he says.

    "Excellent Book!"

    I knew about "NOW" before I read or even heard of this book, knowing that if you look to the past you get depressed and if you look to the future you get anxious. It is difficult to know their has been 'history' when their is no time. That we can remember our past and their wasn't any. Their was just NOW. Was it lots of little now's or was/is it one huge long now? A brilliant book that I have to read in small pieces often.And will carry on doing so.

    "very throught provoking book"
    If you could sum up The Power of Now in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, challenging and enlightening


    What did you like best about this story?

    put the past behind you


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

    personal experience


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

    not really - each paragraph builds on the last - it does what it says on the tin - be aware of yesterday, and tomorrow but focus on the now!!!


    Any additional comments?

    first e-book - found it very difficult to find the time to listen. life kept getting in the way :D

    This is a powerful and inspiring question and answer session with a true spiritual teacher. I enjoyed every minute of this audio book and have listened to it several times. The message is awe inspiringly simple but trying to put it into practice will be a life's work.
