You are too kind Spirit. It's well worth spending the few dollars to have the book. It's so dense and complicated I'm almost hesitant to recommend it to most people though. It's taken me SO long to make head or tail of it in a practical way, I can't imagine most people being able to comprehend it at all.
@Burris: Eckhart Tolle books are lovely, but I recommend some other things. FREE Online Course Offer :: Understanding Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now
This is a free course and absolutely brilliant.
And I recommend this (also free and wonderful) course. Transmission of the HEART - Awaken Beyond the Mind and Ego HEARTgazing - Transmission of the HEART
It's also worth heading over to the Oprah website. You can watch her webinars with Eckhart Tolle, and her soul series talks with "awakened teachers" like Byron Katie, and other people like Wayne Dyer. Those are the ones I watched.
