The tenth-anniversary edition of the book that changed lives in profound ways, now with a new foreword and afterword.

In 2006, a groundbreaking feature-length film revealed the great mystery of the universe-- The Secret-- and, later that year, Rhonda Byrne followed with a book that became a worldwide bestseller.

Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. 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 book, you'll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life--money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You'll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that's within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.

The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers--men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

Amazing book. I recommend!!
Changed a lot of my perspectives, and I feel in control of myself. Controlling what I think about and how I think about things is something that makes me feel great!

This is one of the most pretentious, boring and misleading books I have ever read. It's definitely NOT about a "secret" as it has been openly written about for centuries, and practiced for a long time, especially in competitive sports and business practices. There have also been hundreds of books written about this, at least since the 1970's (I even own one from that period). The book can be reduced to one statement: "Whatever you believe in, you can manifest". And this concept is repeated, in various boring forms, without exaggeration, about a thousand times throughout the book. I was disappointed because I though she would reveal the source and contents of some of her mysterious ancient sources. However, she barely mentions them, and the main old source appears to be - the Bible. Don't waste your time with this nonsense - it is only the author's scheme to gain riches through her sales and speaking engagements.

Great book for people who want to learn more about their thoughts and become more aware of the thoughts they are having.

As a Christian, I know that the Law of Attraction is not true. There are many valuable principles presented in this book, but they must be toned down and taken with a grain of salt. I believe that faith and belief are very powerful...but unfortunately, the grains of truth or so scattered in with untruths that I couldn't recommend this book. I would instead recommend you read "The Secret Things of God" and anything by Norman Vincent Peale, especially "The Power of Positive Thinking" for a truthful, balanced view on belief and its power.

This book is so so so awesome because it say that positive thinking is the key to a happy life. It is true, if you want to win the soccer tournament and you have to think positive and you can win. Think guys when it somes to soccer games we all think positive so that we can win the game. i am going to apply this into my life.

I sincerely hope that no one is deterred from reading this book based on the randoms listed on this site. Much like everything else in life, there are varying degrees of belief & skepticism. Take what you will but do give this book a shot.

Personally, I believe in much of what The Secret proclaims as it puts out the basic principles of positive energy and good karma only in a nicely gift-wrapped way to make it sound "new" and "revolutionary".

Based on my experience, The Secret does work, however its not as easy as it seems either. It requires people to follow a daily regiment of positive thinking, inward reflection and active mindfulness; easier said than done on most days.

After a couple years hiatus (hey, I'm lazy, too). I've decided to give another serious chance at this way of living (that is what it ultimately).

- Keep at it.
- Do it daily.
- Don't chase results, those will come eventually.
- Be strong because it takes will power to do this (well, anything really).
