The theme throughout the volume focuses on transitioning from the formulation of an idea or concept through actualization by utilizing  the power of positive thinking. Negativity only gets in the way of progress by blocking creativity and leading to depressive modes of behavior and ultimately bad outcomes. In addition, the book provides a considerable argument on how to break out of negativity through relaxation and imagination.     The author demonstrates how frequent …

This is one of those books that you will love or hate. I really enjoyed it as I believe that the energy we put out there is what we get back. The book focuses on thinking positive and controlling your own destiny. If you are struggling in your life or feel like you are surrounded by negativity it is a good book to help get you back on track. There are some world renowned spiritual teachers involved in this book and I cannot imagine they can all be wrong. That being said it can be a little over …

        I enjoyed the secret. Reading this book made me feel like I have some control over my life and that made me feel a little bit better about  being able to deal with difficult situations that occur.        I would recommend this book because it brings back a positive attitude. I think this is very important in life and this book gives you some ideas on how to tap into that attitude.     The book basically is a book on …

Waste of time, there is no secret to life, the book is a scam!
review by . October 05, 2010
Pros: Excellent concepts, easy to read.      Cons: none      The Bottom Line: If you are looking for a truly inspirational book, this book is definitely the one to read. Really great writing about real concepts.      One thing that I have learned throughout my many years of education is that if you are going to achieve anything in life, you have to be forward thinking and make it happen for yourself. Things don't just tend to come to …

   This is simply one of the best books that i have ever read. It literally changed my life because of all the good info that was in the book. It made me realize that  i was not only in control of my own life but everything that was happening around me. After reading the book i was a more confident person with many new goals that i once thought was impossible. I got a chance to read the book and watch the movie, even though both shared the same information i was very happy about the …

The true secret: convince a bunch of people that you have the secret and they will shell out cash to buy it from you.
review by . June 29, 2010
   The Secret definitely has it's pros and cons. i checked the book out of the library after having watched the original movie (where Esther Hicks/Jerry Hicks/Abraham) were included in the discussion of the enlightened experts featured in the film.      There tends to be a strong division between those readers who swear by this book and those readers who are bent on discrediting the author and the panel of experts in the film.      For me personally, …

I enjoyed the book. It was repetitive but at least it made you think more positive in the end.

A shortcut to read what the universal spiritual sense teaches. Kind of a bible without God. You can read Proverbs and earn much more!

Quick Tip by . July 14, 2010
Absolutely atrocious abortion of rational thinking. It takes a simple concept like positive thinking and tries to spin it as the magical answer to everything. It quote mines most of the historical figures it mentions. The whole "law of attraction" is bogus, as it WILL NOT work. Those who tell you it does work are guilty of selection bias and the placebo effect.

Gives you a new way to look at things in your life.

This book is good. It pointed me to a lot of nice authors. A couple of the people in this movie are cheaters though, so beware.

This book truly unlocks the secret of life. I live by the rules of this book. I only put out positive energy into the universe so that I can receive great things.
review by . July 02, 2010
Though not widely publicized and thus not very well known the Secret is one of the best self help books, also made into a movie with real life accounts, of our generation.  Though at times it seems that the book becomes over dramatic and too farfetched from your personal life the overall message be sent is unbelievably valuable. The Secret emphasizes a principle call the “law of attraction” which basically states that a person’s mental wavelengths concentrated on something …

A good enough introduction to the Law of Attraction.

The secret is grossly under rated !

Entertaining but absurd
Quick Tip by . June 26, 2010
Very intersting ideas on the powers of the mind and believing in what you want in life. I think it could be possible, but I cannot say for sure. It is very thought provoking and makes you wonder if you can really make things happen by believing them

I find it useful for every person. Tells us about common things anr rules in the Universe. But most people don't remember them, and if even remember - don't use in everyday life. It's a pity((
