really liked it
Read in October, 2008

I never managed to complete reading the Power of Now although tried several times. This book was a god send, and even though it still suffers from what seems to be repetition of the same principle on every page, since it is a lot shorter I have read it in a day and feel like I have fully grasped everything that Eckhart was trying to convey in his main book. So if you, like me, find the Power Of Now a difficult read this book will definitely give you all the main ideas in a concise digestible form.
I think this book will make for a perfect every day companion as the author suggests to read one paragraph or section every day to reflect and to remind yourself of the practice. Might also make a good intro to Power Of Now if you want to introduce your friends or relatives to the ideas put forward.

Joyce Thanks for this review. I have read the Power of Now a couple of times in the past several years and each time get more from it. But after listening to the audiobook the past week on my daily walk I feel like I finally have gotten the true meaning. I may look for this one in audio form as well!

Pedro Pinto Reading this book should be a complement of "The Power of Now" - each person has its own timing to read it, to be "enlightened".
