According to the author of this book ‘Eckhart Tolle’, living in the now will create a more peaceful life for you. You’ll be able to more directly solve your problems and won’t be faced with the anxiety and worry of things you cannot change. The book teaches meditations and different exercises that can be used in your everyday life in order to enhance the quality of your life. The book teaches much more than I could explain, but is really a great lesson to learn. It is not a self-help book per say, it’s a book that should be read by anyone looking to find a sense of constant well-being on an everyday basis.
The great thing about this book is the ability to learn the lessons even if you don’t have time to read the entire book. The author also released a much shorter version of the book called ‘Practicing the power of now’. This short version simply contains all of the different essential teachings, meditations and exercises that are mentioned in the book. This shorter version allows for all of the change without reading information that may not be necessary. I enjoyed the book, but would recommend the shorter version for those of you who find this interesting, but don’t have the time to read a whole book.
