Format: Hardcover
This is one of the few self help books (having read a few!), that actually does help you bring about change, rather than leaving you with a short lived determined but unfocused buzz. Highly recommended.

Beware: this book is identical to "presence: how to use positive energy for success in every situation" !!!

I needed help being heard. 4 Nov. 2008
By MLSchoenfeld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Maybe someday I'll come back and write a proper review. Right now, I just want to issue a warning: If you purchase Presence: How to Use Positive Energy for Success in Every Situation, do NOT also purchase The Second Circle: How to Use Positive Energy for Success in Every Situation. They seem to be exactly the same book, except for the title. I ordered both, after I somehow got the impression that they were two different books, based on the different titles.

It Works! 20 Aug. 2010
By Dennis Kear - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In her book The Second Circle: How to Use Positive Energy for Success in Every Situation, Patsy Rodenburg distills her concept of Second Circle energy, developed over decades of work around the globe with people from all walks of life. While her background is in the theater, working with the world's leading actors, the techniques she's developed can be applied by anyone, regardless of his or her vocation, to transformational effect. This is no abstract philosophical or metaphysical treatise. The writing is completely grounded in the work at hand, each idea seeming to spring spontaneously from the moment. Anyone fortunate enough to have worked with Patsy will immediately recognize her voice and spirit on every page. The book is chock full of practical exercises and examples. The bottom line: it works!

A very important book! A gem for generations! 21 Sept. 2012
By Rico D. Del Rosario - Published on Amazon.com
I devoured this book as soon as I received in but soon realized it needs a slower, more alert and careful reading. I just finished reading it the other day and I must say, Patsy Rodenburg's "The Second Circle" deserves a second reading (and a third, a fourth, and so on). There is just so much gems of practical advice in the book: it's a treasure chest!

Patsy talks about the energy we were all born with as our birthright. She explains the three Circles of energy, and her thesis that living in the Second Circle is the only way to live fully in the present life. She then gives exercises to initiate us into Second Circle and help us abide in it.

Now I am a slow learner. I don't read a book and then be able to say, "A ha! I got it! I know what the author is trying to say." This is good because this book deserves to be worked through. The exercises have to be experienced to be able to encounter Second Circle and BE in Second Circle.

The exercises work and I am seeing much improvement with my work and relations. I plan to integrate these exercises into my life.

If you see "The Dog Whisperer" on TV, what the show host is talking about with dogs, that Presence, is exactly the same with what Patsy is talking about, but Patsy shows you how to use this Present Second Circle Energy into every area of your life.

The principles and exercises are applicable to whatever situation you are in. Read the book, try the exercises, experiment with the principles, and suit them to fit your life!

Great read, great advice 28 Oct. 2012
By ReviewEr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Second Circle is a cleverly written book, yet extremely accessible - so no fears about difficult and boring chapters that drone on about the same advice and about something that only the author would have discovered which is totally innovative and not taken from other sources.
I got onto this book by the author's work within the acting world and find her link with every-day life interesting and to the point.
It's another way to look at what's going on in your life and/or the lives of people around you and it includes sound advice and simple yet 'deep' thoughts on why we do what we do, what could be wrong with it and how we can improve it.

Very helpful with undergrads 16 Feb. 2014
By lkeg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fascinating approach to working with young beginning actors. Have found it most helpful in rehearsal with untrained or minimally trained singing actors. Would recommend it highly.
