    Story
    "This is the biggest sham of something much deeper"
    What disappointed you about The Secret?

    The shortsightedness of the metaphysics theories, and the complete misunderstanding of consciousness science.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Bagavhad Gita


    What character would you cut from The Secret?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    Rhonda Byrne said on a radio show that the tsunami victims in Indonesia in 2004 brought it on themselves...? Enough said.

    Story
    "Christian slanted happy-talk."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The beginning sounded great. After only a few minutes of it, I was highly anticipating the rest of the book. It comes off as a science based method to improve one's life using positive affirmations or, as the author and her cohorts put it,


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rhonda Byrne again?

    Not unless she drastically changes her view of reality.


    Have you listened to any of Rhonda Byrne and contributors ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance and presentation was the only good thing about the book. There were several different voices and plenty of music. All of the actors seemed very sincere and enthusiastic.


    Was The Secret worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If you value reason, logic, and scientific method: STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK! Seriously, it belongs in the tarot card section of the bookstore.

    Would you try another book from Rhonda Byrne and/or Rhonda Byrne and contributors ?

    Perhaps


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    the story would be more enjoyable if the book focused more or personal development through the law of attraction rather then on using the law of attraction to get material things.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Please don't read this book!"
    What disappointed you about The Secret?

    Firstly I expected a story, not a self-help book. There was nothing in the blurb to warn me that it was not a conventional novel.


    What could Rhonda Byrne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not write it in the first place. It was utter unscientific nonsense.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Even if I put my utter horror and disbelief aside for a minute and pretend that I could swallow such nonsense, the book is endlessly repetitive. The "secret" is revealed in the early stages of the book and then endlessly repeated.


    What character would you cut from The Secret?

    There are no characters. It is a long tedious lecture on the "secret" with "professionals" adding their deep and meaningless insights.


    Any additional comments?

    Please post this review to prevent other unsuspecting listeners from making the same mistake. It was a complete waste of money.

    "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.

    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.
