Is a celebration of the old idea of enjoying the moment. It deals with the power of the ego, the importance of ‘the now’ and then how we go about exacting the transformation that we all need, leaving the reader feel more empowered, happier and more at peace, even after just one chapter.
Eckhart is a spiritual teacher and author who was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada. Eckhart Tolle is the author of the number one, New York Times bestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
There is a reason why a whole book has been devoted to the singularly most popular and most widely promoted piece of self-help thinking out there, because it works and it makes a difference. If there is one thing that you’ll want to master it is the principle, propagated here in Ekhart Tolle’s book, ‘living in the moment’. And yet Tolle makes it feel fresh new and makes you look at the principle with new eyes and an open mind.
Tolle’s writing style is engaging, relaxing and completely compulsive. Not only is the message uplifting but the books structure and voice is soothing in its delivery.
Following the guidance in this book WILL make a big and immediate change in your happiness and how you view your world. Certainly he’s touched on something as he’s already sold over three million copies in North America alone. And I’ve yet to meet anyone who has read this book and not come away from the experience raving about it.
This is without doubt one of those books you will want to just read and re-read over and over again.
