I started reading this book last year and couldn't get through it no matter how hard I tried. It's not the easiest to read in the beginning; maybe the first three chapters. After a while, you get used to the writing and the over amount of explaining a concept to make sure the reader is really sure of what the author was trying to get across.

It felt like a lot of other "new age" books I have picked up, but it had it's own thoughts to get across.

I can say I have felt happier since reading the book. Maybe, because I am focusing more on the now and not what is going to happen tomorrow or next week. Lets face it, we are not guaranteed anything past this present moment. I still plan for the tomorrow and next week, but I don't want time to jump there, but stay in the moment I have now. (this has helped a lot while being "stuck" in my current job.)

And I think that was the point. To let go of what you are seeking and just be in the now.
