The secret book what is it about
The Secret (The Secret, #1) by Rhonda Byrnethis website is too kind. one star means didnt 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 dont even think i could stomach. so heres the concept behind The Secret. You can attract good things to you through your good thoughts. Ok, Im on board with that. It has worked for me. Ooh, I already knew the Secret! too bad I didnt 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!

The Secret Is Everywhere...
The Secret is a best-selling self-help book by Rhonda Byrne , based on the earlier film of the same name. It is based on the belief of the law of attraction , which claims that thoughts can change a person's life directly. The Secret was released as a film in March , and later the same year as a book. The book is influenced by Wallace Wattles ' book The Science of Getting Rich ,  which Byrne received from her daughter during a time of personal trauma in Byrne re-introduces a notion originally popularized by persons such as Madame Blavatsky and Norman Vincent Peale that thinking about certain things will make them appear in one's life.
Several years ago there was a lot of talk about the book The Secret. It was on the best sellers list for a number of months. When a friend offered to lend me her copy, I decided I was curious enough to take it. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Skeptical at first I now realize that many of these concepts have been true in my own life. There are many I have discussed and used with clients. You may recognize some of these from previous lists.
THE SECRET - the book that changed the world, by Rhonda Byrne. Translated in 50+ languages. #1 on New York Times bestseller list.

And I watched the DVD four times. I go to the Website every day! I felt like whispering to her, "Psst! The Secret is that you have too much free time. My initial instinct was to call The Secret a crock and forget about it. But I was curious. Googling confirmed that my party companion wasn't the only obsessed fan; millions of copies had sold within months.
