    this website is too kind one star means didn t like it I hate, hate, hate this book with absolute passion sorry if you like oprah but she seriously did the world a disservice by recommending this book apparently there is a dvd also that i don t even think i could stomach so here s the concept behind The Secret You can attract good things to you through your good thoughts Ok, I m on board with that It has worked for me Ooh, I already knew the Secret too bad I didn t use it to make millions like this chick But no, it goes further You attract bad things to you through your negative thoughts Well, negative thoughts are pretty useless, so I can see benefit in trying to decrease or eliminate them And one time true story I did get robbed while traveling after worrying about it for 3 weeks BUT There is no gray area with this one According to the author, people who are raped, killed, maimed, tortured they all bring it on themselves with their negative thoughts The people in Darfur should be thinking here comes the food, there go the guns The book goes on to say that weight management is simply a matter of thinking thin and not looking at fat people for real , that if you have a stack of bills to pay you should instead picture checks coming in, that you can have everything you want through visualization, such as your hands on the steering wheel of your car, and that you can cure your cancer watching funny movies There is a weak chapter at the end about how you can use your Secret powers for the common good, like world peace, but why would you want to waste it when you can be driving your new Hummer I would go so far as to say that this book is not only BAD but it is DANGEROUS It promotes the self absorbed, materialistic, shallow outlook of predominantly rich white people to the exclusion of the rest of the planet while managing to blame them for their problems and justify those in possession of the Secret for not using their visualized wealth to promote social change Aah, brilliant genius avoid this book do not give money to this woman and her brilliant marketing pyramid

    A horribly written and assembled collection of tripe it has no cohesive voice, no cohesive theme, and is completely facile in its analysis I literally threw the book across the room when I read, Quantum Physicists will tell you the universe was created from thought No, numbfucker, they won t Not to mention the facts they assert don t have citations to lend those assertions the slightest hint of credibility.If you want me to believe that thinking positively will lead to success because your energy and focus will follow and, in turn, develop into what you hope for then fine, I ll go down that road with you but this is just shit.This is What the Bleep do We Know blended with The Celestine Prophecy blended with a steaming turd My wish, universe, is that this book be banished to Cthulu s hell mouth and regurgitated as Kevin Trudeau s doppelg nger Make it so

    I had a long review and I got too many responses to it Comments and emails, and strangers connecting with me because of this review.So I deleted it.Here is what I will say nowI once gave this 5 stars I have since changed it to 2 stars.My focus is on something else now This book is fine but I don t recommend it any but other books insteadIf you are looking for control over yourself and future, Its in being as close to God as possible.How to do that and what that looks like is a much longer explanation and individual for everyone.Good luck on your journey

    went to dinner with the boss lady the other night she went on and on about this wonderful book it was truly life changing and she was already seeing the positive results of applying principles from it in her business and personal life.she wasn t able to really articulate any ot those principles, so she just gave me a copy went through it the next day.holy crap my employer, the person that i am financially dependent on, is a fruitloop am updating my resume now.

    Should this book be classified as FICTION or NON FICTION I have no idea, but what I m inclined to do is classfying it as DELUSIONALThe Law of Attraction Whatever you send out of positive thoughts to the Universe comes back to you, ten fold at least It s a bit like karma and positive thinking with a twist You want to money comming to you Just visualise it and it will happen You want to be thinner Just visualise that food has 0 calories Quote from the book Food cannot cause you to put on weight, unless you think it can Well, I guess that s why this person is so insanely fat she must believe that the food she eats has many calories and fat Someone should have explained to her that it s 0 calories and good for her Yes, people ARE that stupid to believe in all the stupid claims that Rhonda Byrne writes By all means, I m all pro positive thinking I ll go as far as to say that yes, negative thinking gets you nowhere and that positive thoughts healthier for you the glass is half full and all that BUT. Jeez Luise This book is just up there next to Paulo Coelho s The Alchemist worst self help fantasy BS ever written But what is even worse is that the author blames people for their own misfortune you get AIDS too bad, you were not thinking positive enough you are a raped child too bad, you were not thinking positively enough you get hit by a bus too bad, you were not thinking positively enough your dying of starvation too bad, you were not thinking positively enough You ended up in the gas chamber in WWII too bad, you were not thinking positively enough You get the idea Needless to say how incredibly condescending and trivializing this must appear to people who are enduring pain and distress in their lives whether that be emotional, physical or professional is irrelevant It s actually quite disgusting when you sit back and think about it That ms Byrne s getting away with it and earning millions on it at the same time is beyond me She must be the most positive thinking person in the world.http watch v usbNJM

    I wasn t interested in reading this book I thought from the reviews of friends that it was pretty obvious stuff However, I listened to the audio version I sort of laughed at first and thought, duh I promised to listen to the whole book on CD, and as I listened, the connections between what the author is trying to communicate, and what many world religions try to communicate is huge I am not a religious person I found this book inspiring because I wasn t being told that God created the universe and that if I pray to Jesus that HE will take care of me Finally, I was getting a confirmation that if I live a positive life, and if I really attempt to understand the connection between why I am here, and why the world is here, then I can live a better life There are even segments of the book that answered all of my cynical questions such as, then just focus all your thoughts on getting revenge to those you hate , I didn t give myself this disease , and I am a victim Many folks think the whole book is bunk because it gives an air of personal responsibility, and I can see why they would hate that It s so much easier to blame others There are parts that I think are simplistic But who says life has to be all that complicated Why not try living this secret to life for a year and see what s possible I highly reccommend LISTENING to this book I think I would have a hard time reading it.

    God, I am so sick of The Secret I just can t understand why everyone is so enthralled with it That book is at the top of every bestseller list and it s total crap You re not going to get what you want by thinking about how much you want it I mean, yes to positive thinking and all that, but the part they left out was that you actually have to DO something to make things happen Jack Canfield whose involvement should turn you off automatically didn t really sit around staring at the ceiling waiting for a million dollars to fall out of the sky He sat around writing nauseating stories and then got rejected by a ton of publishers before someone who likes nauseating stories bought his book I mean, Chicken Soup for the NASCAR Soul Come on, guy Now you re just making stuff up.Don t get me wrong, The Secret has some valid points You should envision your dreams You should think about your goals constantly and imagine what you would do if you ever achieved them But you should also think about and envision the steps you need to take to get there Then you should act Do something The world is not just going to hand you what you want.Just a quick edit I forgot to mention the absolute worst part of The Secret It s your fault that bad things happen to you That s right, your negative thoughts bring negativity into your life and cause horrible things to occur Your father died in a tragic accident Your fault Your baby mama took off with the kids and won t let you see em Your fault Laid off and can t find work Your fault If you could just think positively all the time, you d live a charmed life and trouble would never darken your doorstep.Ugh.
