The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
It's no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light. In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, ''the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.'' Featuring a new preface by the author, this paperback shows that only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment.

I can't take it. The publishers have a downright creepy devotion to Tolle. The author himself sounds condescending and remarkably full of himself. I'll try skimming the dead-tree version. That might let me winnow out the platitudes. Read full review
A book I read over and over again. The lessons in living in the present moment. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to slow down and live life as it is...not how they are wanting it to be different. Read full review
