Nothing very insightful here, i knew 95% of it all. The narrarator is slow and lethargic, not sure how he even got this job. You are better of reading actual accounts of what happened during recent recessions of the 20th century.

A special tome for sprituality in our present day

This book is the key to unlocking the door to our spiritual awakening. The answers have truly been laying dormant in us all along. Are you interested in true personal enlightenment? Our present day existence is quickly becoming mired in negativity, unhappiness and confusion. Over working leads to stress, anxiety and depression. My doctor recently told me that 80% of his patient's visits are directly related to one of these. Mental health is silently under siege and becoming the most important health issue of our current era. Most of us are walking around disconnected from the true source/meaning of life, in an unconscious state taken over by the ego and the mind. We are constantly re-living the past and hoping for a better tomorrow all the while forgetting about the most important place of all, the Present. It is here and deep within ourselves that we can find and confront/heal our pains and be free from all fear, unhappiness and anger. Mr. Tolle is an expert in the subject matter because he personally has dealt with such in his own life. He has mixed his experiences with his adept interpretations from other spiritual and religious teachings and combined them in a way that makes perfect sense. I personally worked myself into the ground in the last year and have been slowly making my way back. I would never wish to relive that again but deep down inside I am glad it happened because I believe now that it was time for me to change my path in life (it's never too late). This book has opened my eyes and spirit anew, I have already made great strides in not only getting better but being happier and healthier than ever before. I believe that Mr. Tolle wrote this book not for $$$s like most out there, but because he truly understands & cares about the current state of people's being. I have read it twice and will read it again to reinforce the important teachings that he has bestowed in this book. If you are unhappy, wondering why you can't get over certain things from your past, or seem unable to get out of negative loops in your life... the time maybe now to get a fresh perspective and find the real meaning of it all deep down inside. Take care and I hope you find the profound enlightenment that I did inside these pages. Thank you Eckhart, you are a modern day Sage!
