"A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle

[amazonsearch]A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
[/amazonsearch]
Simply extra-ordinary book for self-realization.  Content is same as "The Power of NOW" but expression/organization/approach is different.  "A New Earth" is more methodical, organized, thick and suited for those who like to read in nuts-and-bolts....analytical people.  It contains a lot of pages about ego-'the false self'.  While other one talks straight-to-heart and is small and less descriptive.

If you have already read this book and if you liked it, you can visit oprah.com to find free videos of Eckhart being interviewed for each chapter of this book.  It seems there are live sessions every Monday (if he hasnt finished all the chapters) where your questions can be asnwered.  Each session is about a chapter in the book.

It's a fantastic book. It is coming from a place deep in the heart; while reading it or watching Eckhart on Oprah, one feels deep tranquillity and easily enters meditative states. Is a very good complement for Vipassana meditation, although on it's own I would question it's long-term effectiveness as he doesn't give that many tools to the student.
"One may be surrounded by great beauty, by mountains and fields and rivers, but unless one is alive to it all one might just as well be dead." Krishnamurti
