I often get asked by people and clients what books to read for personal development and healing. What books do I read? I have hundreds in my library from over 30 years of study, research and interest. I list a few on my main website. But if I had to pick just one book that I consider the best and most worthwhile, that’s quite easy for me to do.
That book is Eckhart Tolle’s THE POWER OF NOW.
That book is by my bedside where ever I travel. I highly recommend it above all other books. If I was stuck on a desert island and could take only one book, that would be the book I’d have with me.
The Power of NOW encapsulates beautifully what all the therapy work is about in the end, if you take it all the way. Some people just want to feel less pain, some just want to stop a bad behaviour, some just want some peace of mind, some want to improve a relationship, some want to feel happy or safe again in the world. When you get all these things, and take it further to its conclusion, you get the power of living in the present. For my mind, no one explains it and lives it better than Tolle.
