    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.

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    Wow, what a great book. This book shows just how powerful thoughts can be. It shows how we create our lives with our thoughts. Many have been briefly introduced to the concepts of this book by wise people with phrases such as "You can be whatever you want to be if you want it bad enough." What this book does is take some of the mystery out of cryptic phrases like this and explains exactly how to think your way into being and doing whatever it is your heart desires. Keep an open mind when reading this book. Thoughts are more powerful than you can possibly imagine. This takes blind faith to the next level.

    "Sound Advise"
    Overall

    You know when I first started reading this book, it seemed kind of dated to me, like advise from a 1950's doctor. But as I got deeper into the book, things started sinking in and a realized the context of this book is timeless. I most enjoyed some of the stories about how some of the greatest most powerful people dealt with some real trying situations. Good and bad things happen to everyone. How we are able to cope with them determines our general happiness in life. If I catch myself starting to worry about things, I read the book again and it helps me deal with life and renews my confidence that everything will be ok. There are real tools in this book. If worrying has caused you even a slight bit of unhappiness I would recommend this book. I imagine people have probably paid alot of money just to learn some of the lessons in this book.

    The choice is yours, and you'll have to live with the consequences for at least the rest of your life. Will you take the blue pill - skip this audiobook and go on thinking of The Matrix as just a movie? Or will you take the red pill - listen to this book, and find out just how far down the rabbit-hole goes?

    Alan Rither says: "Be prepared for serious philosophical thinking"
    "Thought Provoking"
    Overall

    This book consisted of multiple philosophy professionals giving their own personal views of how themes throughout the Matrix movie tie into the teachings of philosophy. Because of this "Multi-Author" format, some were better than others. The book links the scenes from the movie with anything from traditional Greek philosophy to feministic ideas of penetration in a male dominated world. Using parts of the movie as philosophy examples is a good way of introducing the subject to someone who may otherwise never get the opportunity to learn about it or even care about it for that matter. If you are the type that would like to think more profound thoughts than your grocery list or what's on TV tonight, then this book is for you.
