did not like it
Recommended for: no one
Read in October, 2011

Also on my bookshelf is a review of Tolle's THE NEW EARTH. I read it because of the recommendation from Oprah. In that review I said he used 300 pages to say what he could have said in a 10 page essay. I read this book because someone I know said it was great. I think it's just another bunch of psycho-babble bullshit this rich con-man threw together. Really people....if you have issues, go get help without throwing your money away on this kind of crap. No, I did not buy it....the book is a loaner that I will eagerly return.

The message in both books, in my opinion is exactly the same...live for today. This guy is good at taking a cliche, wording it 43 different ways and calling it a book.

Back in the mid-1960's....a group called 'The Grass Roots' said Live for Today in about three minutes. Great song...download it....Michael

Anatoliy Obraztsov I said he used 300 pages to say what he could have said in a 10 page essay!!!! AGREE!! FULLY AGREE! And because of this I rated it 3! I think the author more thought about volume than about plot. About this subject I recommend to read "a crossing or the drop's history" by Anatoliy Obraztsov. Very insirational book too but has more useful information and normal volume!
