I do get the positive thought process of this audio book however the reader lost me half way through due to the.
Reviews Shellanee Brock I appreciate books like these. To have the possibility of success at your fingertips and understand how is the key. I have taken notes and will practice this lifestyle. Positive brings positive, and negative invites negative. A good read I recommend it for all ages. Amara Schubert I disliked the simplistic language used in this book and that the beginning of the book was meant to appeal to our greedy side "You can have money!
Dont waste you time. Dan While its important to keep positive attitudes, maintain a clear goal, and eliminate negative thoughts from interfering with your life, I feel that this book oversimplifies this and its airy presentation glosses over some of the hard truths of life.
Lilly Couldn't do it after 10 minutes - packed it back up and sent it back. Couldn't understand the reader - may have been a great book, but the reader killed it! Anonymous This book was more commentary of the secret. But the actual secret is spelled out for you. Along with an action plan to achieve it. Very "new age". Anonymous Basic, sometimes too basic; "positive outlook, gets positive results" book. I could pass on this one. What do you get? A potent mix for a new cult of "The Secret" followers.
If it sounds too good to be true, rememer, it always is. Some secret. Anonymous This book is truely a waste of time. I can't believe that there are people out there who actually listen to this crap! After 30 minutes of listening I put in the last cd and listened to the last 5 minutes. There was no change, it was just as dull in the end.
I wasted a rental getting this book and then didn't even listen to the whole thing, I couldn't. Save yourself! Don't rent this book!
It is not worth the 3 stars the average gives it. Donec in tortor in lectus iaculis vulputate.

Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids.
Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People , has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
Wallace D. Wattles was an American "New Thought" writer who wrote this amazing little book in It caused a sensation then, and continues to be popular today. In fact, Rhonda Byrne said that part of her inspriation for her best-selling book and film The Secret came from this book. 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. I am giving this book 4 stars, not because the author was so spectacular, but because I think this book is very important as an intro to the Law of Attraction for people who really don't know much about it. You will also hear a lot of quotes from other people in The Secret, I suggest looking deeper into their work if one of their quotes is especially meaningful to you.
I normally prefer the complete, unabridged version of most Audiobooks, for maximum reading pleasure. In "The Secret," however, I found the unabridged audio version contrary to the themes and purpose of the book: There's too much negativity. Interviewed experts rant ad nauseum, with far too many examples of how our negativity affects us. I watched the abridged DVD several months after discarding the present audiobook.
The minute DVD format was both tight and focused. The downside of negativity was appropriately presented, without being "dragged out" at the reader's and the book's emotional expense.
Not Recommended. I think it it a great book on audible but its a book that walks a fine line on being great and completely awful Read it.. If you are not ready, put it aside until it calls you. It puts in easy to understand language much of what most religions have taught for ages without the need for control.
Listen carefully. And think back on your own experiences to find that what is being said is true. Even if you don't believe, you'll at the very least begin to think about your thoughts and maybe you'll end up happier.
Worth the investment. This is one of those incredible life changing books. In addition, the recording is superb. Once in a while a book has more impact in the audio version and this is a perfect example. I would say a person would be better off listening than reading in this case. This book deals with what the author says is the immutable law of attraction that rules the unverse, just as the law of gravity.
The premise is that you can get what you want, be it money, fame, love, good health, a parking space, just by asking, believing and waiting. Good things happen to those people who emit positive what I call vibes, and bad to those who emit bad vibes and that everything that happens to us is because of these "vibes" we emit.
I'd have to disagree with the premise of this book. Bad things happen to good people, regardless of their vibes, and sometimes good stuff happens to bad people. However, I do believe that our thoughts do influence our lives and that if we "believe it, we can achieve it. So read this book for what it's worth and draw your own conclusion; an interesting read, but not entirely factual or believeable. Plenty of people have written about the content, so I will write aout the actual recorded version.
For whatever the content is worth, I think this makes an excellent audiobook. The reading is clear and enthusiastic. The sections of the book are well broken up and there is a different voice that reads the end of chapter summary, so you know where you are at the end of a section. The use of different voices is exceptionally good - I think it breaks up what might otherwise be a pretty monotonous reading.
All of the voices are different and yet still expressive. While the main reader has an Australian accent, she is easy to understand; all of the other readers have American accents. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for two things though: I agree with the content of this book in most ways.
I think our minds do in fact create our lives. However, I think it is a waste to focus that power on gaining material possessions, as seems to be the focus of this book. There must be something more useful than stuff houses, cars, and bikes, as suggested in the book to manifest in ones life.
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 Full break down into the power of positive thinking.
It has made me a more positive thinker. 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. Has The Secret put you off other books in this genre? Any additional comments? I can relate to both camps, the concept here is really "be positive" and focus on key outcomes as this ultimately drives success and behaviour - but the essence of this book is about wishing for success and that process alone will secure that success.
I don't like the analogy that links illness such as cancer or a disability as being a result of negative thinking This must have been written as part of a ceremony to secure tenure in a cult. 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. 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 '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. 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. 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? 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.
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.
Seriously, think and the universe will bring it to you. Get off your arse and work for it and it will happen! Complete self serving drivel. I finished this audio very quickly, I really enjoyed the narrators, there was a few different people, they all sounded like a breath of positivity, I found it very comforting. This was a bit like confidence hypnosis and ii got a bargain 2in1 deal.
The information was relevant. I'm going to keep this and come back to it often for reference. There has been flooding and bad weather here and their voices felt like a ray of sunshine. I closed my eyes and imagined blue skies and the bright warm sun. The next day, all of the flood waters had gone, the sky was blue, the sun shone warmly and the birds tweeted. I've just finished the book and feeling extremely positive and inspired and I'm very excited for what my future holds!
Absolutely love it!! The power of one. My self. The power of the mind blowing power that I've always had with in me and not known it until now. This really works. Not only is the general concept uninspiring but the constant contradictions within the text make it hard to follow and really accept.
Don't waste you precious time or money. This book is fucking brilliant, so good even I was able to think of 15 words for the review.
Listen to the secret and be inspired. A great presentation that ticks all of the boxes and will leave you feeling great. I'm no longer a grumpy old man.
Listen to it over and over again and your life will change. Nothing but gratitude for this tittle. A very impressive and thought provoking book. Performance is if a high standard but the message is what will change your life, if you let it!
Will listen again and again to fully digest the message. Loved it, it has truly helped me to change the way I think, between starting it and the end I have already changed habits. Would highly reccomend to anyone wanting to better the lives of themselves and those arou d them. Was great to listen to it this time. I was intrigued by the content of this book, but could not get past the Frist few chapters and the women reading this is incredibly annoying to listen to.
Do not recommend this audio book at all.
