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 hard enough can cause that thing or even to happen. Though most people (including myself) are initially skeptical about this it is easily tested on one self. I for one was very skeptical when introduced to this principle but since then have tested it on several occasions only to see incredible results. Even if the principle in itself is inherently irrational and nonfunctioning the law of attraction builds up an individual’s self confidence and focus onto something specific to a point where he or she is able to achieve it. So, skeptical or not, I would highly encourage anyone with an ambitious goal or two to read this book and try to apply the principles explained to your goal. You never know, the thing you want the most could be just a few brainwaves away.

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.
Quick Tip by . July 15, 2010
A shortcut to read what the universal spiritual sense teaches. Kind of a bible without God. You can read Proverbs and earn much more!
