I absolutely love this book - so inspirational and thought provoking.. I was a little sceptical to be honest but it really does make you think in a positive way.
I decided to try a couple of experiments by visualising a blue butterfly and thinking continually how I would see one (not likely I thought...you don't get many blue butterflies!) Well, on my way home from work next day, I glanced in to a neighbouring garden...and they had a solar blue butterfly that you put in your plant pots! I thought ok...perhaps that was coincidence, so when I lost my memory stick I visualised that I'd lost it at work and it was on my desk. The next morning I got to work & my boss had found my memory stick outside and had put it on my desk!! I was amazed!
So, yes, I really do believe there is something about the power of attraction. I completely recommend this book - it makes you think about things in a completely different way and I'm continually referring back to it.
I'm thinking about getting the audio CDs too so that I can play it in my car to and from work.
You really won't be disappointed!

Format: Hardcover
The Secret is just the latest in a long line of Law of Attraction books that have been published through the years. I've read most of them, this one is a huge seller and made the author a millionaire because of the way it has been marketed. And it's a cynical marketing ploy too, and ruthless in its determination to be unopposed by any dissenting voices.
When I first heard about the LOA (Law of Attraction) I truly believed I had found the answer to everything and totally believed in its validity, only to look around many years later and see that nothing had actually changed. I didn't manifest the things I believed I would and don't know anyone else who has done so either. One friend who was singing the praises of The Secret when he first read it two years ago, has now given it away, completely disillusioned and feeling worse than he did before he read it and started following its 'advice'.

When all the affirmations, visualising, asking, believing, etc, doesn't work, or only in very limited or small ways, then the person who had grasped onto what seemed like the answer to their prayers, ends up feeling betrayed and without the false hope they had been given by this money-making spinner for the people selling it to gullible and vulnerable people, who, by their purchasing of the book, the CD, the DVD, the follow up books about what to do when it doesn't work or things go wrong(!) are putting money into the bank accounts of the people responsible for this 'spiritual marketing' as it is known in the trade.

Format: Hardcover
I am not a psychologist, or self help guru - just an ordinary guy who wanted to improve the quality of his life. I was recommended this book by a former work colleague, as he had read it and said he was inspired by it. I brought the book, and having now read 'The Secret' myself I have to say it is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever read, and I can only advise against people being conned into buying it.

Basing its premise on the Laws of Attraction, the outline of the book is that thinking positively can lead to a lifetime of happiness in terms of relationships, in attaining wealth, health, keeping slim, and other aspects of your life. The claim made in the book, is that this so-called Secret has only been known by the world's elite going back in time, and only now is it being passed down to mere mortals like ourselves.

Seriously? My parents have been telling me to think positively and believe in myself since I was about seven years old - if only someone had told them they could package that advice up and string it out into a book, we would have been laughing all the way to the bank like I presume Rhonda Byrne is! The quasi-religious hocus pocus of the last few chapters adds to the view that the author is simply waffling on, writing what people want to hear. It is easy to think positively, it does not always lead to positive actions.

This book is as much of a self-help book as 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', and is simply a folly of marketing. I am embarrased I brought this book, and can only advise others not to do the same.

I work in personal development and this book is a rehash of about thirty others. Save your money.
Self help is like self abuse....you have to do it yourself. You can wish for things as long as you like but unless you take action, nothing happens.
If you want to know what the secret is...I will tell you...
the secret is, people want to get on in life. If you tell them you can help them...they will bite your hand off. If you can dress up a lot of ideas and tips and techniques and pitch it in a style and manner that is different then people will buy it, in droves. This book is nothing more than a placebo. File it under snake-oil.
By the way, some very respected people are in this book and are quoted. Please do not think they believe it....it's a form of marketing for their own books and websites.
Cosmic ordering? Pah!
Heres an example. Sit and wish for a copy of 'the secret'. You could do that from now until doomsday and you wont get one. Order it from Amazon and youll get it next day. Thats the difference, you have to do something to get something. Thinking about it wont make it happen.
