Publisher's Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

    "Amazing, just as the first"

    Absolutely powerful. This book and Eckhart Tolle really do carry a subtle and enlightening effect into the lives of those who encounter it. I will attest to this whole heartedly, at least in my experience. Highly recommend it.

    "Best Book of All Time"

    This one, and The Power of Now, changed everything for me. If it makes no sense the first time around (as it did for me), give it a year or two and try again. Once it clicks, you're on your way to peace. I'll never be the same... :-)

    "I honestly have not finished the book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A New Earth to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version, but I do have the Power of Now and didn't have the easiest time getting through that one. Maybe it's where I am mentally, that this book didn't do it for me. But, I do feel as if the narrator was what messed it up. The concepts seem great, but the author being the narrator wasn't the best choice.


    Would you recommend A New Earth to your friends? Why or why not?

    Um, the book, not the audiobook.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes to the yes! He's so dull! Not to be mean, but man, he's just too monotone I think.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The concept is good, I know it. But, I kept zoning out because of his voice. So, I'll just say, buy the book not the audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    If they were to release this audio book by a different narrator, I would buy it and give it a shot because I do believe can be life changing, under the right circumstances.

    "Mind-blowing Stuff"

    I must be honest here, I have spent my life so far being a bit of a cynic about anything that isnt completely factual with the exception of emotions and creativity, and am as such a total atheist. But I'd been having a hard time and was informed by reliable sources (ie. Russell Brand...) that this book is pretty remarkable.

    The opening lines of the book had my sighing and preparing myself to be utterly correct in my preconception that this would be a very hippie dippie book and would not on any level relate to me or my life, with its subject of the beauty of flowers. As beautiful as I agree flowers are I initially did not see how this was relevant.

    Throughout the course of this book I had several moments of pure clarity and a genuine challenge to my previously held beliefs that I found utterly fascinating. I am, probably to my detriment, a very opinionated person and I really appreciate and enjoy anything that legitimately changes my mind.

    This book changed my mind.

    If you can get past the connected one-ness of the universe dialogue and see the truth that lies between the lines of what I initially thought to be meaningless. At least to me anyway.

    And it genuinely helped. I'm not going to go into my personal issues in a book review, and everyone has their own intricately differing situations, but it was refreshing to see things from a new perspective and therapeutic to have the soothing voice of Eckhart reading his wisdom aloud, like my own personal therapist.

    "One of the best..."

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!

    "Even better as a talking book"

    I loved this book when I was first give it in India by a wonderful and selfless man who thought I needed it (and I did). I will ever be in his debt. This book truly changed my life by changing the way I respond to the 'chattering' in my head. I hope it will do the same for you. Buy it and listen, but be warned, this is not a book for the car, I found my concentration was on the book and certainly not on the road.

    "Pure Genius... but play it a double speed"

    Seriously I love the work of Eckhart Tolle but if I had listened at normal speed I would have had to give this a 1 star review. He speaks so painfully slowly and without any drama or character to his voice that it is almost impossible to listen.

    The audible app allows you to play back at different speeds and what do you know if you play him at 1.5x he sounds much better.

    Which character – as performed by Eckhart Tolle – was your favourite?

    N/a


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

    Made me stronger as a person.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has enabled me to deal with some very difficult situations of late. Having bookmarked several areas in the book - I find myself returning back to those bookmarks and listening again and again to gather infinite wisdom!

    If everyone read this book and could understand what the author was trying to say, then the world would be a much happier and healthier place.
