    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Overall

    Plenty of people have written about the content, so I will write aout the actual recorded version.

    For whatever the content is worth, I think this makes an excellent audiobook. The reading is clear and enthusiastic. The sections of the book are well broken up and there is a different voice that reads the end of chapter summary, so you know where you are at the end of a section. The use of different voices is exceptionally good - I think it breaks up what might otherwise be a pretty monotonous reading. All of the voices are different and yet still expressive. While the main reader has an Australian accent, she is easy to understand; all of the other readers have American accents.

    I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for two things though:
    1) the music is awful new age-y stuff. it's not at all necessary and what they picked was just terrible. it's not enough to distract from the reading, but it'll date the audio pretty quickly.
    2) there are a couple of sections where the reader (the author) is clearly in love with her own ideas and you can hear the "look how amazing i am!" in her voice. it's kind off-putting in the sense that what she's describing isn't all that remarkable.
