This book is an excellent introduction to The Law of Attraction and to the science of thoughts and feelings attracting what we experience in life. It has many respected authors and teachers quoted and gives a few ideas of how to use the information. I felt it fell short on offering very many practical applications though. Esther and Jerry Hicks have written: The Law of Attraction and Ask and it is Given and both those books go deeper into practical application. Another very practical book is Quantum Success by Sandra Anne Taylor. The Secret is an excellent introduction or reminder but you will want to read more deeper books on the subject in order to fully make The Law of Attraction work for you!
This book was the biggest disappointment ever! I heard from a friend that it was the book to read, it is not. She quotes other people & then tells you what it means, are you kidding? I haven't seen the dvd maybe I'm missing something. Bottom line think it and you can get it, really? I am a huge believe in the power of a great attitude and positive thinking but not to make me rich, thin & beautiful (those are supposedly the things you can get, which are the only things that make you happy, right?) if those are what you are looking for you are looking for the wrong things for the wrong reasons. If you want to be a better person there are lots of great books that can help you get what you want, try Covey, Sarah Ban Breathnach, or even Zigler. Hope her millions $$ make her happy...
I just don't understand what the big deal is about this book. It is just a bunch of stuff that is supposed to be inspirational. The secret is that the author made millions on this book. It didn't give me any information that I didn't already know or have read before. I guess if we take the information literally if we all want it bad enough then we can all be miltimillionaire, super models with no cares in the world. Lesson learned: If Oprah speaks everybody bombards amazon.com and purchases. (At least she is getting people to read) Glad this book was given to me!
The positive message of the book is uplifting, though what it describes is no secret at all. It is a well known psychological fact established in the twentieth century about positive thinking. The script follows very closely that of the movie by the same name. It is well worth the read.
This appears to be a bunch of baloney. "The law of attraction:" Not science, not even sensible. It only takes 15 pages to invokes quantum physics, a red flag for bunk. While I'd like to unload this book for a credit, you'd spend your time more fruitfully reading from the American Library Association's list of banned and challenged books. They, at least, relate to real human experiences, and have won prizes for literature. This one rates a Razzie.
I actually listened to this on CD. I would like to acquire if for my personal collection. It was motivational and uplifting with a positive message. I believe we have the power to create our own experiences and The Secret provides assistance with maintaining a positive outlook.
