Meet the Author

Eckhart Tolle
Eckhart Tolle is a renowned contemporary spiritual counselor and bestselling self-help author. At the core of his simple yet profound teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution.

Biography

Eckhart Tolle was born in Germany in 1948. He spent his teenage years living with his father in Spain, then moved in his early 20s to England where he attended the Universities of London and Cambridge. Following a period of intense personal crisis, he underwent a profound spiritual awakening at the age of 29. He embarked on a long, transformative inner journey that effectively dissolved his old identity and changed the course of his life. Today he is recognized as a great spiritual counselor and an author of inspirational self-help guides. He remains unaffiliated with any organized religion or specific philosophical tradition.

In his first book, The Power of Now (1999), Tolle stressed the importance of living, fully present, in the moment. His powerful message of active self-awareness resonated with millions of readers -- including kingmaker Oprah Winfrey -- and launched a range of related literature and teaching materials. In 2008, Winfrey selected another Tolle title, A New Earth, for her influential Book Club, joining the author for an online workshop. A sought-after public speaker, Tolle travels extensively, taking his teachings throughout the world.

    This book changed my life.

    I would advice everyone to read this wonderful uplifting book. It has helped me so much in my everyday life. I can know say that it¿s made me realize things I never really thought could be possible. When I was at a point in my life where I thought I hit rock bottom, and was looking for an answer. I found The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment By Eckhart Toll, and realized that the answer I was searching for was my self. I have found so much peace in life. I am no longer taken over by my past or the future I am now a watcher of my mind and thought¿s. Thank you for such a self healing way of living.

    Life Changing

    I was Interduced to Eckhart Tolle, by my Sister she read his books A New Earth (Awakening to your Lifes Purpose) and Power of Now guide to Spiritual Enlightenment. I started out with these two books and didnt stop. They have been Life changing for Me. His teaching brings a whole new look on Life, You and the world we live in. I hope you get as much growth as a spirit as I have.

    I've already bought several more books for my friends.

    I'm at a time in my life where I'm looking to combat the daily stresses and anxiety that often overwhelms me. My buddhist friends says this book encompasses everything she grew up learning and studying through Buddhism, but is framed for a Western audience. It's an amazing read which I will pull out again and again and is placed right next to my bed. Whenever fear, anxiety or stress start to creep up... I will most definitely pull this book out to ease and caress my racing mind.

    Excellent Condensed Version of Big Book

    If you want to cut to the chase of THE POWER OF NOW, this is the way. This is a condensed version of that book and it makes the main points and gives great exercises in a format that is quickly readable. I benefitted from reading both and highly recommend them.

    Inspirational. Must read.

    This book reminds us of the present and how the future and the past could all be insignificant. However, Tolle is not recommending that we stop worry about the future, but how we live the present will better prepare for the future.

    I' have read 4 of Eckhart Tolle's books.

    This one is an abbreviated version of The Power of Now, along with ways to practice The Power of Now.  

    His philosophy can speak to anyone - to any religious, personality, or beliefs.  

    In this review I thought I'd let Scifi fans know what The Power of Now means in Scifi terms.
    The Power of Now means having a mental presence or experiencing a None-Linear state of mind.

    canged my life and saved my life

    The tape was life altering, I cryed and felt and change of being. I felt at peace. I felt hopeful that I could be happy and that I was making life all to hard. This was a since of release that has change me for ever,and the poeple around me. I had read Deepak and that started me on the journey, but he was very deep and hard to assimilate, to every day life. Eckhart tolle's voice is so soothing and it is easy to take in. I play it over and over again and still get something new each time.

    This may be the best and most useful book I have ever read. I find myself picking it up every day and rereading parts to get myself back on track. It's a wonderful way to live, in the present without the ego. It is life changing!

    Useful one

    I chose this shorter version of "The Power of Now" after reading and loving "A New Earth". It is good, but for some reason I didn't catch me as much as "A New Earth". I have been reading one chapter at a time. Maybe when my mood is more open I'll enjoy it more.

    NOW

    Live each day as if it were your last. Be in the moment. Carpe Diem. However you put it we need to know it. Living in the present takes care of the past and the future. That is the same message in my favorite spiritual book, I Talked To God And He Wants To Talk To You. Don't dwell on the past or worry about the future. Live Today.
