    "Great production of an audio book"

    Really enjoyed this audio book. The production was wonderful and made it easy to listen to, understand, and enjoy. Instead of someone just reading straight through a book, it was filled with audio clips and interview sections from different people. I assume these were excerpts from the movie, but it was a wonderful audio format that others should emulate. I liked it very much. Oh yea...the message was good too. Full break down into the power of positive thinking. It has made me a more positive thinker.

    "and the truth shall set you free"

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I come from a very different background, I am a Muslim and I am fascinated by the book.

    I believe this magnificent work is a convergence of what has been revealed so far from what is known. Everybody who was exposed to self improvement was familiar with the bits and pieces that were shared here and there, things like how faith or positive thinking can make a difference.

    But here we are, with the Secret revealed in its grandeur.

    Thank you.

    "Say what?"

    Interesting idea, but not presented with much basis in fact. Redundant in its presentation and a bit droll in content. The aggressive focus on material wealth was shallow and a bit kitchy.

    "The Secret"

    After listening to this book I purchased it also in paperback. A great book for inspiring you to think of your daily actions and how they reflect on not only your outlook but how others view you. Great for getting you back on track to a more positive way of life.

    "Best thing to happen to me lately!!!"

    This book has changed my life in such a short amount of time that I wish that I'd found it sooner! Sure the law of attraction has been around for years but it wasn't until I found it in the format that Rhonda Byrne has put it in that I actually UNDERSTOOD it, the implications and was able to APPLY it. It's all about timing and being open to it and I finally found the thing thats been missing in my life. I am listening to this book regularly as well as watching the DVD because I truly believe immersing myself in this philosophy and life practice will effect the change I've been needing in my life. If you haven't gotten this yet. Do yourself a favor!!

    "Makes you think"

    I think it gives some wonderful suggestions on positive thinking, gratitude and visualization. I wish it focused less on material wealth and more on relationships, health and other things that bring us happiness.

    "Awesome"

    What a wonderful and refreshing view of what is actually achievable in this life. I am a genuinely upbeat person who expects and receives the best life has to offer - this audible takes my optimism and up beat nature and enthusiam to dizzy heights. It is anchored in a lovely spiritual and dare I say biblical underpinning. On first listen I was a little critical of the cheesy Americanisms of some of the speakers (apologies to Americans). My advice is - "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water" - stay open to and listen to the message. So good to hear an Australian woman breaking through with such a strong and revolutary message. Thank you Rhonda for reinterating a message I received at age 21 and forgot. This audible came along and reminded me with passion that I can have and deserve to have what I desire.

    "Fantastic Book - Life Changing"

    I grew up in a very religious environment but personal spirituality was not really discussed. This book is a great way to really help you analyze the way you think and the thoughts that you have and help you make an overall change in the way you look at things. It's not rocket science by any means but its definitely an eye-opening book that has the information in it to truly change your life and help you react to life's situations. Its helped me out in every aspect of my life and I find it important to listen to bits and pieces of the book every day or so. If you are like me and were a negative person expecting the worse out of every person and every situation, it can be challenging to change but it's doable. I highly recommend this book to entrepreneurs and other business people as well as mothers. Its definitely worth the time and money and I believe that everyone that has an open mind will benefit greatly from the teachings of The Secret.

    "Priceless"

    This book is uplifting and inspirational. I have thoroughly enjoyed The Secret and I've been practicing the techniques on a daily basis. The techniques are easy, fun and they don't cost anything! The Secret is priceless! Thank you Rhonda Byne.

    "Terrible advice and quite offensive"

    The author claims that the victims of Nazi Germany PUT themselves in that situation due to their negative thoughts and thinking.

    The author claims that patients with cancer and other critical illness's have brought on their disease with their thoughts and can heal themselves with thought alone.

    The rest of the book is in my opinion just a spin on the 'positive thinking' sales pitch popular in life coaching through the 1990's and a protracted advert for the authors movie on DVD and related products.

    A fool any his money is so easily parted...

    I requested a refund of my Audible credit

    "There is no 'Secret'"

    I brought this book about three years ago but only writing my review now as I believe time was a true test. I initially brought this as two close friends raved about it and curiosity led me to give it a listen. I was quite angry at the underlying message of this book - that you, and you alone, are responsible for what happens in your life, and all external interactions are a result of you attracting that to yourself. Others have highlighted what this implies for the sick and disabled. Of course this book has a great defence mechanism, that should you find fault with it then your not practicing the 'Secret' correctly; No I didn't, but my friends and many others did and did it deliver the life changing guarantees if offered? No in the slightest.

    The only thing I can commend it for is that it probably will put you in a positive frame of mind for a while. If so then good, use that to DO things to get on with life but don't expect the universe to give you everything, its busy enough without tending to greed.

    "If you like simple answer"

    Positive thinking is one thing but blaming victims for being victims is beyond my resistance. With in the first hour you will read that victims of the genocide, crime, rape, murder, have attracted this evil by there way of thinking. It never mentions how babies and very young children attract this kind of horror.
    If you like simple answer and are stupidly materialistic this book is for you. If you want to believe that cancer, Nazis, hunger, and natural disasters are made up by your mind this is your book.
    I can not believe that intelligent people are not lining up to denounce this garbage.

    "1 star is being generous!"

    This is related to the laws of attraction and is basically consumerist non-sense aimed at those gullible enough to swallow it. Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. This is so transparently ugly and stupid that it seems impossible that anyone could take it seriously. Take out the buzzwords and pseudo religious nonsense about what you 'manifest' for yourself, ignore the vague prose and you get the message that thinking positively serves you better than thinking negatively. To sane people this is laughable, like the Tooth Fairy or Ouija boards. If you're falling out of an airplane, the law of gravity trumps the law of attraction.

    "Missing 1 vital thing."

    Determination... This books puts out that with positive thinking alone you can sit back and all will fall into you lap. Total rubbish. If positive thinking was so powerful there would be no point playing sports as our teams would never loose, we would never get illnesses etc etc. Complete rubbish.

    "The Secret to Life!"

    This is one of those rare books that really can change your life! I have listened to it about 6 times in the 3 weeks I have had it, and still want more. I feel more energised, positive and most of all, happier! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to improve their life in simple but profound ways.

    "Empty - Made for the sake of making money"

    This is your typical run of the mill self-help/inspirational swindle - a money maker and nothing more. Full of empty platitudes and inane cliches that you've heard a million times before.

    This book does more harm than good with it's wishy-washy 'ask the universe and all shall be granted' approach. Here in the real world you have to work hard and persevere to get want you want.

    I can not believe someone who knows me recommended me this book, what a load of nonsense! The whole notion that you don't get on in life through hard work, talent, privileged and opportunity is comical! I'll get myself to work, you sit at home wishing your bills are going to turn into cheques.......
    If Rhonda Bryne has the power to just will cash her way, why is she charging for book, video and audio!?

    "Fine content, marred by the delivery"

    I rated the content at 4 stars since the book provides a good overview of the 'New Thought' philosophy as it has developed over the 20th century. However, I found the audio slightly marred by the authors delivery, which was a heady combination of stilted, breathless and needlessly over dramatic at times. Other voice acting for the classical 'New Thoughters' (Wattle, et al) was fine, and the 'experts' voices are just the experts voices. since most earn a steady living doing presentations, their delivery is fluid and clear.

    Overall, a good addition to the 'concious creation' canon, that pays its dues to the founders of the field, but a professional narrator would have improved the packaged that final star.

    "Coincidence"

    At the same time as I saw this on audible and downloaded it, I had several unconnected references to it from friends and family, all quite positive. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the authors delivery is not very professional, but taking a leaf out of her book we can smile and be thankful! She is certainly full of enthusiasm for which she gets full marks. I have been investigating similar material for about 25 years, but this is the first time I have seen it presented together in an easily digestable manner. Even the narrow minded sceptic can listen and try out the simple philosophy, without much fear of ridicule. She gets 10 out of 10 for me for shear effort and strength of character to make this happen! Go on try it!
