What I'm Reading Right Now
I was quite put off Tolle's book, because it starts off saying, "One day, 112 million years ago, the first flower bloomed..." Obviously that never happened. You had thousands of years where things resembled flowers, and over a long period these can to resemble flowers more and more. There was never a 'moment'. Quite a disconnected opening gambit, and it's made me want to toss the book into a fireplace to stay warm and otherwise occupied by something interesting (flickering flames in this case).
