I have really been appreciating books by Eckhart Tolle of late. Anyone else read him?

I did not read his books but i have been watching podcasts of the Oprah show where she was presenting one chapter of his last book ("New Earth"?) every week with him. It was great, very inspiring, and also funny to appreciate the contrast between Oprah, being very exhuberant, wearing colorful clothes and Eckart, always collected and wearing the same clothes as my geography teacher at school, if you know what i mean...

He is definetly a very good teacher and his eyes were glowing most of the time. He also looks strangly young for his age. What i liked a lot in this tv show was that people from all over the world could ask questions and make comments through Skype, this made the show very interactive and vivid.

What do you like most in his teachings?

I also really like his stuff.
The way i see it if you follow his advice then you mould your perception to adopt a specific view of reality.
Its a stalking exercise. In this instance we are stalking 'spacious awareness'.
His explanations and instruction tell us what to do with our awareness in order to hold this view.
First we have to move our assemblage point to this new place, then practice holding it there.

I'm not sure how to describe it. He kind of takes the way a lot of people talk about Buddhism and modernizes it - makes it more balanced, makes the language less extreme and easier to understand and make practical. He has some great practical tricks for finding happiness - just reading the book you feel how happy and simple this guy is. It's really amazing that just reading it, I feel it's impossible to think anything or do anything but just enjoy. It's a liberating book for me, and I'm not really sure why.
