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.

    "good read"

    I listened to this book in pieces so that I could fully digest the content. I did the same thing when I read the art of war. This book really makes you think and then not think. I found the content interesting.

    "The Power of An Audio Book"

    I have heard about the Power of Now for years. Having practiced meditation and studied Buddhism I thought it would be a rehash of things I already knew. Then I experienced a moment of suffering and was drawn to listen. Eckhart and the other two readers walked me through how I found myself in the situation and what steps I could take to move through it. Very authentic and powerful!

    "Repetitive but worth listening. Would recommend 👍"

    Loved it. Would recommend reading if you need advice on how to handle everyday small situations. Hard to stick with book as he repeats a lot but worth listening all the way through - repetitiveness is sometimes nice. Seems contradictory in some cases but you have to be able to read through the lines to understand completely. Takes a few pauses to comprehend, a few sit backs and reflecting is advised to fully grasp his way with words.

    "Now I am centered. "

    Eckhart Tolle does an amazing job at being able to communicate abstract and complicated topics using analogies and emotional connections. I’m so grateful that I listen to this book. His voice is very smooth and relaxing which further in Hanses the focus of meditative presents.

    "Direct and clear"

    Eckhart Tolle delivers a most direct and clear transmission of the power of presence and the Now. The Audible version is masterfully done and bookmarks can be used to reference the wide range of pointers that he delivers. This book and his transmission is a cherished masterpiece delivered from the heart of Being.

    "Joy of being"

    This is awesome book by Eckhart Tolle, he kind of answers all questions intellectual mind can ask and absolutely convinced me that only way to live is live in present. It's still very hard to put in practice though. This book does provide a solid foundation to start one's spiritual journey.

    "This book will transform your life, only if ready"

    I have read several books over the years. Most of the books I read, and listen to are personal growth books.

    This book was godsend to me. I do not recall who recommended it, nor why I had it in my library. I had just finished reading the The Personal MBA, and decided this book is next. Oh boy have I found the answers to my million questions.

    If you are a curious person and are genuinely looking to transform your life. This is your starting point. Just one piece of advice, don't just listen to this book, practice it as well.

    "Now is the Best Time "

    Although Tolle might not win prizes for narrating most books, he is perfect reading this work. His voice not just reads the words, but takes you to the meditative state he is describing. And his description of going into the now through the body is excellent. I highly recommend this book as an excellent reminder to all of us of Who We Are.

    "Life enriching book "

    Read this book! You may not even like it - read it anyway. It may make you think, you may find a new insight, you may question yourself, you may not finish it. No matter, have an inside adventure!

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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
