Having read and benefited massively from The Secret, then bought and not read The Power, I was unsure about The Magic but knew I'd want at least to see what was in it. Once again Rhonda has brought a fresh slant on the Law of Attraction. Personally I wanted to quickly read through the whole thing with the intention of going back to the start to do the exercises but as soon as I started reading I found my days became so much happier, more relaxed, flowed better and Magic is happening because of that! Unlike the negative reviewer who said you have to take action, well we take action all day every day... I'd say The Magic is more about deciding whether you are going to focus on appreciating what you have in your life, in front of you, right now or whether you always feel there is not enough.
What I particularly like is that you CAN figure this stuff out by yourself, but Rhonda has such a wonderful way of bringing more detail to mind so that you can better visualise and really FEEL the gratitude. I found that this really did make me just feel happier about what I have and where I am in my life and less worried about everything else. This automatically changes your mindset, your body language and how you go about your day, which is why things go better. Change your thinking to gratitude and you will see the world in a different, more joyful way.
I haven't even gone back to the beginning yet and I want to buy more copies as gifts for family and friends. If you only ever read one book this is one that can make a difference to how you see your life, even if the only action you take with it is to read it and refer to it for inspiration. This is not an instruction manual on happiness, it's a reference and a guide to a more joyful life.
