Ekhart Tolle's message is simple: living in the now is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment. And while this message may not seem stunningly original or fresh, Tolle's clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm make this an excellent manual for anyone who's ever wondered what exactly "living in the now" means. Foremost, Tolle is a world-class teacher, able to explain complicated concepts in concrete language. More importantly, within a chapter of reading this book, readers are already holding the world in a different container--more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of their ability to live in genuine peace and happiness.
Tolle packs a lot of information and inspirational ideas into The Power of Now. (Topics include the source of Chi, enlightened relationships, creative use of the mind, impermanence and the cycle of life.) Thankfully, he's added markers that symbolise "break time". This is when readers should close the book and mull over what they just read. As a result, The Power of Now reads like the highly acclaimed A Course in Miracles--a spiritual guidebook that has the potential to inspire just as many study groups and change just as many lives for the better. --Gail Hudson

I don't really understand what the author is trying say.
Grow rich While You Sleep by Ben Sweetland
TNT: The Power Within by Claude Bristol
are far better books in my opinion.
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.
Your subconscious take notice of whatever you think and feel.
This includes beliefs that humanity has reached the pinnacle of its development, that we are completely separate from each other, from nature and the cosmos, and that the physical world is all there is. Based on his own personal transformation, Eckhart brilliantly shows us how to rise above our conscious thoughts and overcome our fears by ending our delusion of time to exist and gain great pleasure from living in the NOW.
By watching our thoughts and putting them into the right context, we can remove the insane burden of worrying about a hundred things we will or may have to do in the future, and focus our attention on the one thing that we can do NOW.
When we acknowledge and accept the facts and stop reacting to our thoughts, we create the space for transformation to happen. This also applies to giving others the space to express themselves and relinquishing negativity, so that we can feel true compassion and contribute towards bringing about a better world.
It is the quality of our consciousness at this moment that is the main determinant of what kind of future we will experience, so to surrender is the most important thing we can do to bring about positive change. When we surrender to what IS and so become fully present, the past ceases to have any power and we do not need it anymore - presence is the key to the power of NOW.
