Publisher's Summary

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. It has been understood by some of the most prominent people in history: Plato, Galileo, Beethoven, Edison, Carnegie, and Einstein, along with other renowned inventors, theologians, scientists, and great thinkers.

For the first time, all the pieces of the Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life transforming for all who experience it.

In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want. You will learn how to use the Secret in every area of your life. You will hear from modern-day teachers - men and women who have used the Secret to achieve health, prosperity, relationships, and happiness. They share their incredible stories of using the Secret to eradicate disease, acquire massive wealth, overcome obstacles, and achieve what many would regard as impossible. Through them, you will begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that is within you, and the true magnificence that awaits you.

    "Great information, weak delivery"

    While I like the subject matter and feel that it is important, I don't think it offers anything new, nor does it deliver it in a particularly effective or enjoyable manner. I found it very similar to parts of the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" Also, similar information is available from Dwyer, Chopra, Myss, and even Brian Tracy if you venture to the business section.

    "Not new, but wonderfully delivered."

    You've probably heard most of the messages in this book because they've been around for ages and the overall secret is alarmingly simple to comprehend and practice - and I can tell you from first hand experience it works. The real gem of this audio book is that this story is masterfully crafted and lovingly delivered. There's passion from the first word and it's infectious. This is a first class production and a very enjoyable listen. Don't be surprised if you end up with all you asked for... that's it!

    "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.

    "Amway Self-Help"

    The premise of "The Secret" could be interesting and useful for those who need a lift. However, for those who are looking for a scholarly walk through self analysis and enlightenment I suggest looking elsewhere. The book feels like a term paper written using the National Enquirer as it's lead source. The message is clear from the outset concerning the power of positive thinking but the author rambles amd repeats the same message so much it feels like brainwashing. "The Secret" can have a place as an important message in our lives, but this is simply an extravagant marketing commercial for the people who need to hear the message the most. The author name drops several well respected figures in history but their connection with the "The Secret" is unclear. Just because one chooses to quote Einstein and Churchill in their book it simply does not make the message anymore earth shaking or relevent.
    Perhaps those who are in need of self-analysis would be better served reading from scholars who offer substance to their logic and not best-sellers on Oprah's list.

    "Great Book"

    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.

    "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.

    "Good companion for the DVD"

    I purchased the audio version a few weeks ago and enjoyed listening to it, but heard that the DVD was very different. After viewing the DVD, a lot of the content is exactly the same, but there are visual illustrations that will help you if you are more kinetic or visually receptive.

    As far as this being some kind of silly vibe nonsense, having lived using these principles since about 1983, I can vouch for it being as effective as you are bold and patient enough to ask and take action on.

    Even if it didn't produce dramatic results for many people, the shift in attitude and clarity produced by thinking this way make life more enjoyable and positive for everyone. Thankfulness, love and focusing on the good around us instead of the inconveniences are always going to produce a better life regardless of the circumstances.

    Has "The Secret" made a difference in my life? I was diagnosed with infertility and have 6 amazing children. Several "incurable" diseases healed in my family. I've gone from visiting food banks and having my house in foreclosure 3 times to making about 3 times my areas average income and in the process of taking my company to a higher level now that my children are older.

    I couldn't list the hundreds of small things that have just "shown up" ranging from a perfectly fitting wedding dress for $99 dollars that was the exact copy of a picture I'd torn out at age 16 and hadn't looked at until after the wedding when I was 20 to connections with people to household items I wanted or my children wanted.

    "awsome book!"

    I think anyone who says this book is a phony has no idea the power of the mind; it follows the same principles of Think and Grow Rich. You can litteraly will yourself - good or bad- and are not a victim uless you think that way.

    "Absolutely no valuable content in this book"

    This book is hocus pocus, even dangerous if people who don't know better in a poor financial position take the advice literally. Actually at one point advised to treat (pretend) a bill as if it were a cheque! Terrible advice throughout this book and the author doesn't explain how she was successful before selling this nonsense.

    "horrific"

    The only secret that needs sharing is don't waste your money on this book. From the beginning I was shocked and disgusted, that apparently we attract our own heart ache by the fact, it maybe, our worst fear! This is a huge insult my 2 year old son was murdered, did he deserve that? did I or his older brother deserve and actually attract that heart break? No I don't believe we did. For a book that supposes to build you up and give positive focus for me I couldn't get past this disgraceful belief.

    "Sales not science"

    Having read some excellent books on the power of the mind, I was very excited to start 'The Secret' however within a few minutes I knew this was not one of them.
    I completely believe it is true to have belief, goals and that thinking stuff can make it happen - but that could be explained in one chapter and with a lot more scientific depth. The so called 'doctors and professors' in her sound very lame - I get them impression everyone involved in the book is just after a quick buck! It is airy fairy with little back bone - especially compared to the likes of 'go wild' and 'spark'

    Thus is the worst book I have ever read. I can,t find anything positive to say. No science no fact just a collection of quotes and ramblings. Don't waste your time reading this.

    "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

    "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.

    "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.

    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.
