Robert Toru Kiyosaki (born April 8, 1947) is an American investor, businessman, self-help author, motivational speaker, financial literacy activist, and occasional financial commentator.

He has written over 15 books which have combined sales of over 26 million copies. Three of his books, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant, and Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, have been on number one on the top 10 best-seller lists simultaneously on The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and the New York Times. Rich Kid Smart Kid was published in 2001, with the intent to help parents teach their children financial concepts. He has created three “Cashflow” board and software games for adults and children and has a series of “Rich Dad” CDs and disks.
Many people like and dislike Robert. Many say he contributed to the Global Crisis. However his books is still a great source of knowledge and he also predicted the crisis and warned his readers that it was coming. Personally, I’m still a fan, because I read from his books that it was coming. A lot of people missed this information though and say because of his books, there were a flood on ill-informed investors.

Eckhart is a spiritual teacher and author who was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey.
Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada. Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Timesbestseller The Power of Now (translated into 33 languages) and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.
One of those, Life changing books.
I will forever be in Debt to you Mr Tolle, thank you for teaching me how to slow my mind down and admire the breeze.
If you think too much, this book is for you. It consists of ten chapters. In first chapter, Ekhart Tolle talks about the purpose of the book stating that it can be totally useful or meaningless for whom to read it. It will be useful if at the end, you are peaceful. He mentions,” The ideas and concepts presented here [in the book] may be important. But, they are secondary. They are no more than signposts pointing toward awakening. As you read, a shift takes place within you. The book’s main purpose is not to add new information or beliefs in your mind or try to convince you of anything, but to bring about a shift in your consciousness.” However, the book can be meaningless if one is not ready spiritually.
In the Oprah’s interview, Mr.Tolle shows a way to manage the voice in the head stating that whenever it comes, do not pay attention to it. “If you resist ego, it will persist”, he emphasizes. Just let it be there as it is. This way, you are the awareness behind it and as awareness comes in, unawareness goes away.
In the end, the book has promising news. By being awakened, we build a new earth. The new earth is not a utopia. The new earth comes when external world is in accordance with the internal world and when we are egoless, in the surrendered state, in oneness with ourselves, others, the whole universe and God. So, this awakened individual can change everything on the earth because outer life is not inseparable of the consciousness within. And, it mentions it is already happening, “A new species is arising on the planet, it is arising now and you are it.”
“For me this is one of the best spirituality, happiness books of all time. Face it, people study Law to become Lawyers, in the same way studying his books will bring an unbelievable sense of inner peace and ‘clicking’ moments” “I most strongly recommend Eckhart Tolle, in particularly this book to anyone that thinks too much, or is feeling the effects of internal conflicts. “
The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is a book by Eckhart Tolle. Published in the late 1990s with an initial printing of 3,000 copies the book’s sales’ growth accelerated in 2000 after Oprah Winfrey recommended it in her magazine.
All you really need to do is accept this moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now and at ease with yourself…..ECKHART TOLLE is a contemporary spiritual teacher who is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition. He writes with the timeless and uncomplicated clarity of the ancient spiritual masters and imparts a simple yet profound message: There is a way out of suffering and into peace.
