This book will change the way you view life. I've suffered from anxiety and depression since I was young and after reading just the first chapter of this book I felt an instant release of both. I'm now about half way done with it and I am more calm, understanding, patient and aware than I have ever been in my life. I would without a doubt recommend this book to everyone.
This is the first book I have read of this nature, and very few books that I have read in the past have made an impact on my life like this one has. I am truly a changed person. I have more tolerance and patience towards other people. You are able to identify another persons "pain body" and deal with situations involving them. It is very true that we are controlled by our egos, and once you realize that, you right away begin to feel yourself taking charge of your life, being able to feel true freedom, aliveness, contentment. I purchased additional books to give as gifts. I highly recommend downloading from Oprah's website the online classes with the author Eckart Tolle.
This book has brought such new and beautiful perspectives into my life. I have recommended this book to every one in my life. So positive and uplifting and informative. It is a joy to read. I feel like I can relate to my nature loving husband a little more and understand what has made me fall in love with him.
This is a very good book. I enjoyed reading it. Hope everyone else will enjoy it, also.

I wanted to buy multiple copies of this book for friends and family after I read it, and watched the video class on Oprah.com. The price was certainly conducive, here at Overstock, as was the discounted shipping rate. My package came very quickly, packed well. I got a lot out of this book. I knew much of the material, but much of it I had forgotten over the years or never had it explained so clearly before. It is well worth reading and practicing in this hectic world.
In 'A New Earth', Eckhart Tolle eloquently put into words what I have known for most of my life, but was unable to express. Many pages described what I thought were very personal parts of myself, revealing them to actually be what many people are trying to achieve. He also accurately described personality traits of several friends and relatives, why our paths have drifted apart over the years and why, albeit unconsciously, we can never be disconnected from each other. Most importantly, this book stoked up the flame that was lit within me more than 35 years ago, creating an even stronger, more focused connection with the Knowledge I so dearly love.
I read the book, took Eckhart Tolle and Oprah Winfrey's classes, and am half way through reading it a second time. What's so exciting is that I'm having just as many new discoveries the second time reading it as the first! This is the first time I can say I KNOW my purpose in life! And I know it because I actually felt it, I didn't just read what one person thought it was and believe it, Tolle shows how to feel it for yourself. I'm grateful for this book because it has shown me the way to peace in my life. I hope this helps.
This book will be one of the very best ever written and it will change your life in every way. Oprah is so wonderful in recommending this book as a must read because it is so inspirational that it will have you taking a second look at everything around you. I will read it again and again.
This book was an awesome read, it made you take a good look at yourself and others. I saw alot of myself in it and was very pleased to see that I am a good person with a good heart. I am giving this book to my closest dearest friends for birthdays and Christmas. One of the best books I have read. It was the first time I had heard of this author (seen him on the Oprah Show). He is an amazing human being with a wonderful insight on the "ego". It was not only a good read, but a lesson in not making the "ego" so much a part of your life or anyone elses. Recommend this book to EVERYONE!
I did get a few interesting points but it could have been said in one tenth the length. He was awfully repetitive. I read a lot and was irritated by some of his grammar. Get the synopsis and only read it if you love Tolles theories and want to find out more.
