This review is from: The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle (Paperback)
Eckhart puts into modern day language and understanding, spiritual knowledge that has been around for thousands of years but was clouded in mystery and obscure terms.
'The Power of Now ' is primarily a self help book dealing with the control of our ever inner 'chattering minds ' It's said that to elliminate this problem is to become ' Enlightened ' the term refered to by Buddha. Eckhart points out that incessant mind chatter normally revolves around our past events or our future wishes but never about NOW! As such most of us are going through life living inside our heads never living for the moment, ignoring the full glory of 'Now.' In pschological terms by paying full attention to whats going on in our life at any one moment, and so quelling the inner voice, we open up the gates for new insights and revelations about ourselves and our place in the Universe: Creating feelings of extreme well being.
I can testify to the truth of this philosophy. However to remain constantly in the present 'Now' is not easy but when one achieves it, even for 10mins or so, the rewards are manifold. Of course with greater practice the time scan improves.
Much of the 'The Power of Now ' is written in question and answer form. All questions coming from student questions that have been put to Eckhart over the many years he has been teaching.
A brillantly easy read for those looking for inner peace in a mistaken Society that implies materialism is the path to happiness.

Mr. A. J. Hickman says:
In the book review, in the third paragraph, for the words 'time scan' ought this be 'time span'? In the final paragraph should 'society' really start with a capital letter?

unnecessary pedantry from Mr Hickman.
Mr Ringham's original review was excellent

I always look for the 'meaning' behind the written or worded statement not the content. Grammar changes with time along with the use of certain terms and presentation. However I trust you understood the message Mr. Hickman.
