A New Earth: awakening to your life's purpose by Eckhart Tolle

So far, I’ve only read the first chapter of A New Earth: awakening to your life’s purpose by Eckhart Tolle and I’m not sure what to think of it.

The latest selection in Oprah’s Book Club, A New Earth tells readers that we humans must “Evolve or die” and promises to show us the way by teaching us to transcend our egos and let go of attachments using ideas from Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Daoism, and other spiritual traditions.

I haven’t read Tolle‘s other books The Power of Now or Practicing the Power of Now, but many friends and family highly recommend his work. I hope he lives up to the hype (the NYTimes doesn’t seem to think much of him).
