    The audiobook version is great. Recommend reading short sections instead of all at once., May 22, 2017

    This book offers many great passages on how our minds and egos can be the most destructive forces in our lives. We are conditioned by society to always live in the future or the past as opposed to simply living in the moment. We have computers and technology that help connect us accross distances but lead us further away from the people that are right next to us. How many times are we glued to computer/phones while we ignore the world around us. People search for answers to Life’s greatest questions in religons that want you to believe that there’s a paradise waiting for us after death. Why should such such a paradise exist if we can’t be there right this moment? If it causes us to forget about all the joys and experiences we encounter during life why should we have so much hope for it?

    There is much potentail to what the author lays out in this book but it is up to the reader to follow what is written. While some people may not agree with some aspects of the book or feel that there is too much repition the central message is clear: Start living in the NOW and stop letting your mind control your life. This is not one of those books you should read fast but would be great in small chunks. Any philsosophical text requires one to read a passage and take some time to digest/think about what they read. I puchased the Audible version of this book as well and feel it would be great to listen to passages while on walks through nature or just during meditations. The fact that the author himself narrates the book adds another layer to the information he presents.

    During my reading/listening of this book I never found any strong religious overtones so while there a some Biblical references he does bring in some Buddhist concepts as well as Taoist ideas. It’s not a preachy book in that sense which kept me reading (It probably would have deterred me from reading it otherwise). I don’t have much of a relgious background (my family did not have any religious affiliation growing up) which is why I find the ideas in the book easier to accept over the literal interpretations of, say, the Bible. I think anyone regardless of religious affiliation would find something in this book that would coincide with what they already practice.

    This book is something I look forward to rereading/listening to in the future (which doesn’t exist if you accept what the author states) during walks though nature. I recommend the audiobook version because the author does a good job with the narration and it wasn’t much of an extra cost for it.

    I was experiencing crippling anxiety, and due to lack of insurance, I was unable to seek help. I was worried about my relationships and jobs suffering due to this, and found myself in constant fear of a breakdown. I found this book and it literally changed my life. Recommend this to anyone. Very thankful for this book.

    This was a really amazing book. It literally changed my life. I have been reading a lot of self-development and psychology books and there are similar messages in all of them, including this one. This book just approaches it from a more simplistic “just do it” kind of perspective without all the scientific jargon of how you are rewiring your brain.

    The end goal here is that amidst the spiritual undertones of the book, what Tolle is really educating people about is self-awareness, which is the cornerstone of growing emotional intelligence. I was reading Daniel Goleman’s book, “Emotional Intelligence” at the same time and the parallels were quite obvious. The additional benefit that Tolle offers is walking through some meditations and affirmations and presenting the information in a way that is like an easy to digest conversation.

    After I was about halfway through the book, I had a moment of sitting in my car by myself, and had the thought, “I don’t have to take this bulls*** anymore, I am not a victim,” and then I laughed for about five minutes and many months later, still feel great about all of the things I was able to let go of.
