His writing style is unbearable. For example, "It is a misperception of your essential reality that is beyond birth and death, and is due to the limitations of your mind, which, having lost touch with Being creates the body as evidence of its illusory belief in separation and to justify its state of fear." JFC.
I finally put this book away for good after reading half of it. I really don't understand the book's popularity. It's like everybody is nodding, smiling, and singing Tolle's praises, when the reality is that nobody gets it because there is nothing to "get." But nobody wants to say it.
It taught me how to disconnect from the insanity of the mind. I had spent my life reading thousands of books trying to "figure it out" to make my way to a place of happiness and functionality, what Tolle explains that trying to solve the problems of thought from the level of thought is an impossibility. When we let go of mind-consciousness we do not become a meditative vegetable, instead, we gain access to the consciousness of our whole body and a more advanced awareness. I know it sounds weird, but it works. When I can stay present everything I do becomes more effective, and my social skills are way better now then they have ever been.
I don't mean to say that this is the be-all and end-all to human growth, but it has in fact saved my life, so I figured it at least deserved a good review. I am no longer helpless in the face of crushing memories and emotions. Thank you, Mr. Tolle.
Side note: I tried to return it but Amazon is charging $5.99 to return it (shipping), the book costs $9.49. My refund total is about $3 and some change. Is it even worth the trouble of packing it up and going to the post office to drop it off?
Hmmm...maybe I'll just leave it on my bookshelf. The cover color is nice. It matches my decor.

My recommended books are
Grow rich While You Sleep by Ben Sweetland
TNT: The Power Within by Claude Bristol
Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz
There's no waffle in these books.
Basically get the habit of success thinking instilled in you mind by disciplining yourself to think that way. Initially you have to force yourself to think success thoughts rather than letting your thinking run on autopilot, being influenced by the outside world. The more you force yourself to think success, the more your mind will do it.
Thinking habits apparently take 21 days to form so as they say, your result will reflect your efforts.
Your subconscious take notice of whatever you think and feel.
