Many people who have read The Secret audiobook or seen the DVD of the same name report that their lives have changed completely because of this book. The idea behind The Secret is to bring to the masses the secret of happiness and success in everything you do. Most self-help books are not like this because they generally focus on one thing—doing well in business, overcoming depression or having a good relationship with your significant other, for example. The Secret, however, claims that it can give you everything that you want and also that the answer is really simple and has been known by great people throughout the centuries.

Rhonda Byrne claims that all great people have practiced the method she promotes in The Secret and she gets people who are well-known in their fields to talk about their rise to success. So The Secret is largely made up of quotes from people who have been successful in their chosen occupations. Some of these examples are really interesting, like the one of Jack Canfield who made $100,000 by making a fake $100,000 bill (just adding more zeros to a $1 bill) and pasting it on the ceiling above his bed. Every morning when he woke up, he would see the bill, close his eyes and visualize having that $100,000 per year lifestyle. Finally, after a month, an idea came to him and he ended up making $92,327 that year.

In another example, John Assaraf had just moved to a new house and was unpacking when his son came in and asked what was in a certain box. That box contained Assaraf's vision boards where he would put up pictures of the things he wanted in his life so as to attract them to him. Assaraf opened a box to show his son and while he was looking at an old vision board where he had pasted a picture of a house, he realized that he had bought the very same house and just moved into it.

So what exactly is the method that The Secret is trying to promote? Basically, The Secret claims that everything in life works according to the law of attraction. If you visualize good things happening to you, they do happen and if you visualize bad things happening to you, that's what happens. If you're a happy and cheerful person, more reasons to be happy and cheerful will come to you and if you're anxious or depressed, you invite negative things into your life. Fortunately, it's possible to change your thoughts, to deliberately think positive thoughts and visualize wonderful things happening, either by just closing your eyes and living them in your mind or using physical reminders like vision boards.

The writer of The Secret, Rhonda Byrne is an Australian radio and TV producer. She initially produced a DVD of "The Secret" and later wrote the book as well, which was endorsed by Oprah Winfrey. She has also written "The Power" and "The Magic". The Secret was on the New York Times bestseller list for 190 weeks and Rhonda Byrne was named one of TIME magazine's top 100 People Who Shape Our World in 2007. Rhonda says that the idea about writing The Secret came to her when she was at a really dark point in her life. She had worked herself into exhaustion, her father had died suddenly and her relationships with people were all suffering. At this time, she was given a copy of The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles and this changed her life, giving her the idea for The Secret. After that, she found that she saw the secret in many other places and realized that it had been present throughout history.

You hold in your hands a great secret...

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 single 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 in life.

Listening to it in my car never gets old. "

    " First time ever to see a book telling people "don't work". It was stupid to flip a page after the other while it could be summarized in less than half a paragraph. "Imagine that you own a Laila world and it will be attracted to you"!!!!! Seriously this is what it says. You need to do nothing and the secret is a stupid law of attraction that nice or bad things will be attracted to you based on our positive or negative attitude towards thing. you dont need to run after things such money or love, it will come magically alone if you are just positive!!! Literally that what it says. Of course you can try reading it ourselves I you like that crap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosie Ritchie | 1/16/2014

    " Unlike the rest of the world I wasn't overly impressed by this book. A lot of it is taken from E & J Hicks, Teachings of Abraham. Much better books that really do explain 'the secret' of getting the life you desire. "

    " I liked it and can actually relate to some of the things that have happened in my life. I read some of the reviews and I was a little surprised. I can only assume they don't believe in the ...."Secret" Read it with an open mind, if you read it with a closed or set mind your not going to like it. "
