About the book

4.1/5.0

Eckhart Tolle's message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle's clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who's ever wondered what exactly "living in the now" means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container--more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness. Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he's added markers that symbolise "break time". This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read. As a result, The Power of Now reads like the highly acclaimed A Course in Miracles--a spiritual guidebook that has the potential to inspire just as many study groups and change just as many lives for the better. --Gail Hudson

Very deep, yet amazing book. It took me 3 months to go through it, as I struggled with panic attacks at the time, and this book helped me a lot. I used to bring it on with me on planes, to help myself out of panic. The book really makes you dig deep in the now, changes your perspective of daily life and situations, and generally helps you stay calm and focused.

A true classic within the spiritual really. It takes alot to digest, this is not easy reading, but the wisdom within it is great and helpful if you take time to reflect.
