The book is intended to be a guide for day-to-day living and stresses the importance of living in the present moment and transcending thoughts of the past or future. Published in the late s,  the book was recommended by Oprah Winfrey  and has been translated into 33 languages.
The book draws from a variety of "spiritual traditions",  and has been described by one reviewer as "Buddhism mixed with mysticism and a few references to Jesus Christ , a sort of New Age re-working of Zen.

Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible". It is the cause of untold misery and unhappiness. In Chapter Three, the author writes: "In the normal, mind-identified or unenlightened state of consciousness, the power and creative potential that lie concealed in the Now are completely obscured by psychological time.
You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You can find yourself by coming into the present. Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be. In Chapter Four, Tolle says that "tomorrow's bills are not the problem" and can be a "core delusion" that changes a "mere situation, event or emotion" into a reason for suffering and unhappiness.
