Recommended to Mandy Sue by: Cafemom group Journal Mavens
Recommended for: Anyone looking towards Enlightenment.
Read in August, 2008

Although I loved the message of this book, Eckhart Tolle's writing style is a bit boring. It took me over a month to read this and by the last chapter I couldn't wait to finish it and be done with it.

I have read many books on the same subject and have found that other authors have a better way of grabbing the reader's attention. Although Tolle did have me highlighting certain points and gave me a few "aha" moments; his over use of quotes and repeating the same message about how the ego is to blame for all our problems throughout the book made it seem repetitive and poorly written. You basically can get the same message from any book on enlightenment.

I will try a stab at his other book a Power of Now in hopes that it's not too know-it-all and more to the level of his readers.
