Publisher's Summary

In search of Eckhart Tolle's lost years: This unauthorized biography of Eckhart Tolle, the celebrated author of The Power of Now, A New Earth, and Stillness Speaks, among other works, presents a series of known - and not-so-known - facts about his early life, his spiritual awakening, and his long and winding quest to understand the inner transformation he experienced as a young man. 

It is the result of several years of research and mainly concentrates on the period before he became the best-selling author and world-famous spiritual teacher for which he is presently known.

As most people know, Eckhart Tolle was 29 when he experienced the sudden awakening that triggered his avid journey into spiritualism, prior to which he had suffered from severe anxiety attacks and suicidal depression ever since his early childhood. However, a vast number of people still ignore that it took him around a decade to truly understand the event that triggered his personal transformation, plus another 10 years to finally write and publish his first book, The Power of Now

Truth is, at first, he was clueless about what had actually occurred to him on the night he “awakened”, as he later confessed in an Oprah Winfrey interview published in O Magazine: 

“I didn’t really understand the process.... All I knew was I was so peaceful. Where did it come from? That was all I knew. It took me years to understand the process behind it.”

And, when interviewed by John W. Parker for his book Dialogues with Emerging Spiritual Teachers, he added: “I knew, of course, that something profoundly significant had happened to me, but I didn't understand it at all. 

“It wasn't until several years later, after I had read spiritual texts and spent time with spiritual teachers, that I realized that what everybody was looking for had already happened to me.”

What exactly took place during those 20 years? Who were the spiritual teachers he spent time with, and who else influenced him back then? When did he familiarize himself with the texts of Jesus, Buddha, Lao-Tzu, Meister Eckhart, Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharshi, and A Course in Miracles? How did he end up becoming a spiritual leader and best-selling author? And why is there so little information about most of his “lost years”?

Discover the answers now and witness the rising path of this modern mystic whose message still resonates worldwide, benefiting millions of spiritual seekers around the globe. 

Get this revealing biography now and discover Eckhart Tolle's amazing quest for the power of now! 

Namaste!

Decent book for Tolle fans. Super cheesy VO

First, most of the reviews here are completely fake. This book is decent and did fill in some interesting gaps about ET's background. Worth the little I paid for. The voice-over person is super cheesy though... he sounds like what a person sounds like when they are faking an over-the-top game show host.

A few years ago I read the Power of Now and A New Earth. These books literally changed my life and since then I've been a big Tolle fan. So listening to this new bio about him was something I really enjoyed. Great work!

If he could make it, so can I!

I always thought that my life was full of problems. But after reading this book I now realize that my problems are nothing compared to the ones Eckhart had during his troubled childhood and youth. If he could make it, so can I!

This is an awesome audiobook! It contains very valuable details regarding Tolle’s life and helped me understand the causes of his interior transformation. I highly recommend it, especially if you are familiar with “The Power of Now”.

Awful

Save your money. You’ll learn nothing new here as much is taken from ET’s books or are quotes from magazine interviews.

The narrator sounds like a computer!!
