If your main focus is perfect digital quality, then No, it's not for you. Tolle has a German accent, but speaks clearly in English. I encounter no difficulties listening to this on my iPod. If your main focus is the message, this talk is fantastic! Tolle offers great insights into the workings of the human ego, and a practical guide to living each moment fully. For me, that's well worth being patient with some technical flaws.

This a 7 hour recording of one of Eckarts recent retreats. As a devoded Eckhart listener I have heard many facets of this recording in other tape before but still think it is worthwhile hearing it again in a different setting. Unfortunately the sound quality of this recording is the worst I have experienced so far in retreat recordings.

This is a good lecture to listen to after reading "The Power of Now." I've looked through Tolle's other books and most seem to be a rehashing of "The Power of Now," a sort of commercialized industry. A few are good though. The "Art of Presence" is one such good audio to listen to on my Ipod when walking or doing other things.
The unique thing about the lecture is that Tolle can direct you to pause in order to reflect or delve into a subject at the appropriate moment. This is further enhanced by the question and answer period, where I can pause after each exchange or let each question and answer section flow into the other.
I've read in other reviews that some people are turned off by his strange laugh, which it is. But if you are turned off by his laugh, then you have missed his message because you are tuned into your ego. His laugh is in fact the aspect one could focus on because it relates to a variety of concepts he explicates--or doesn't explicate if you understand his way of informing. I don't think he even knows how his laugh is a key to his work.
I think an important point to keep in mind is that one shouldn't give up on the message simply because one doesn't like the messenger. I would also not recommend that one become a Tolle-freak disciple. Listen, learn, and adapt your take on his concepts.

This is a very easy to listen seminar that offers a modern and practical approach to the most basic precepts of Buddhism. I particularly enjoyed the fact that several ideas that I had on an intuitive level were here clearly exposed.
I found no problem with the audio quality, and was indeed happy with the relevance of the text.

I listened to this lecture over a week-end as a retreat. The unhurried nature of Tolle's voice, his silence and his humor all made for a relaxing and educational experience for me.

This is the most recent talk as of January 1st 2008 that Audible has and is well worth the listen. I feel that Eckhart has in a way repackaged previous thoughts of philosophers. prophets and wise men through the ages. He has come up with new words for old words that have a millennia of baggage in their present form. But one thing is he speaks from his own experience of the Present Moment not what he read or heard. The power of this realization comes through loud and clear.
If you want to learn why you think and act a certain way and why others do what they do you can find it here in this listen. You can also learn how to change YOURSELF NOW
A Great talk

Most of the material contained here is available in "A New Earth", Buy the latter instead, it's my favorite book form Eckhart.

I love his books but this audio version was miserably annoying--the sound quality was like it was recorded on a home cassette. I couldn't listen to it, even after several intolerable attempts.

Eckhart offers a fun informative learning journey. After experiencing this audio you can't help but feel bouyant.

Some of us for some reason or another cannot attend a lecture or a retreat and wish we could ...I am one of those people ! However, this audio book transported me magically to experience the retreat as if I was indeed present . I loved the audience participation and laughter. I was instantly in the room with them all and felt I was sharing the whole experience . Eckhart Tolle's delivery and narration was in perfect, natural rhythm and I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone - whether you have read any of Eckhart Tolle's books or not !

What's written here is simply amazing. The one book I'd take onto a desert island.

Another excelent speech/workshop by Eckhart Tolle, probably my favourite so far, and this is light and quite funny!

The laughter in the audience can sometimes... How can I put it... Bring me out of the now? Other than that, make no mistake, the man's a genius!

As this appears to be taken from a live seminar with an audience it can be difficult to clearly make out what is being said.
The content is interesting, but found myself repeating parts to hear it.

Any additional comments?
This audiobook is a recording of a seminar. The author sounds like he's been smoking something illegal and like he's winging it. The participants in the seminar hang on every word the author so tediously leaks out and they laugh at every second sentence regardless of how lame it is, like a desperate person who's absolutely smitten. The author appears to be playing up to the part of spiritual guru to the point that this sounds like a really bad movie.<br/><br/>Any good message in here is completely lost in the presentation.
Great work. I enjoy Eckhart's work and this too is great. Well presented and easy to follow and understand, with many stories, and refrences that help illustrate his teachings. Although due to the format of the
presentation I did find it difficult to hear at times.
