Although I usually am not interested in self-help/self-improvement books, I decided to read "A New Earth" because Oprah was pushing it and I am an Oprah fan. When I say "read" what I really mean is "listen" as I multi-task. The author and narrator has a very acedemic and monotone speaking style which did not catch my attention entirely. I'd find myself only half way listening much of the time. Also, I felt the content was somewhat nebulous as he talked about ego, pain bodies, and such. It did help me to evaluate my life to a degree, making me want to compare and criticize less and making me want to just "be present" more. Overall, I did not really love this book. I am hoping that the online classes Oprah is holding will help my opinion of it to improve.
