The power of now by Eckhart Tolle
This Oprah Winfrey praised book guides you to inner peace and helps you to be present, something most of us need to practice on today. Tolle gives you the tools to live, as he calls it, in the now and how to avoid thoughts of the past or future. According to Tolle the present moment is the only thing that is important and thoughts of the past and/or is created in our thoughts and will sooner or later cause us pain and despair. Even though it might seem a bit too zen at first it really makes you think of how you perceive your life and your own surroundings.
