From Publishers Weekly
According to Tolle, who assumes the role of narrator as well, humans are on the verge of creating a new world by a personal transformation that shifts our attention away from our ever-expanding egos. This idea is well realized through Tolle's remarkably well-paced narration. Naturally, the author understands his material so thoroughly that he is able to convey it in an enjoyable manner, but Tolle's gentle tone and dialect begs his audience's attention simply through its straightforward approach. Something about this reading just seems profoundly important, whether one agrees with the material or not, and listeners' attention is sure to be captured within seconds of listening to Tolle's take on the universe in which we live. Originally released in 2005, both book and audiobook were reissued when Oprah Winfrey chose the title for her book club this year. A Penguin paperback. (Feb.)

His treatise on EGO became tiresome until I realized how important the information had become that my own ego was fighting me for dominance while beneath my Mind, my Spirit was struggling upward for dominance. I let go, and the rest of the book flowed.
Tolle certainly takes you inside. Periodically he will suggest a method for Feeling, for practicing standing in the Present Moment ... the NOW of life ... Eternity in the presence of the creating Source.
Throughout the book I worked ... some days struggling to release all thoughts cramming their way through my brain ... a busy mind that never ceases. I was successful without realizing it until several days after completing the book these stupid thoughts begin again. My countering is to pick up his book each day ... randomly open to a section and read to the end of the chapter keeping me in the Zone of Presence. I also take his advice and when I find Ego slashing and dashing to my forebrain, I stop. Right then. And breathe. One ... two ... three breaths, listening to the in and out. Feeling the moment on the out breath when everything stops. Centering on that moment, my Mind stops, the brain relaxes. Stupid thoughts vanish. I return to the Present Moment .... a space, personally. I never choose to leave.
As Tolle says, "A new species is arising on the planet. It is arising now, and you are it!"

Read this book. Study this literature. Practice this method. You may grow more spiritually through these ten chapters than in the past ten years.
This is a way to help you unlearn all that you think you are and need to be. It will take practice to learn to be present in each moment...we aren't use to doing that. We pride ourselves on multi-tasking! It's so simple, and yet so difficult, especially when everyone around you is asleep to this way of being. One by one hopefully we can awaken.
I tried to listen in each week with Oprah and Eckhart. It helped to clarify a few things, but I still have questions. I am also re-reading The Power of Now, which is similar in many ways. I enjoy the interpretations of Bible passages and parables in a way that I was never made aware of til now. It really makes sense!
