Incredible!!

I cannot say enough about this book. After never listening to an audio book before I am left open mouthed and exhilarated at such an amazing audio experience. I never expected every person in the book to be talking to me, I felt as if I had my own private book reading read to me by all of the individuals in the original story. Absolutely blown away!!

Difficult to listen to

I personally didn’t like the Australian accent. I really didn’t like the stranger background music and how the actual content of the book was so drawn out with pauses for music and multiple different voices/people reading. I haven’t gotten ok the way through it yet but I might not be able to listen to the audible. It’s painful to listen to and absorb the information.

Excellent book

I really enjoyed this book, the beginning is a little annoying and they keep repeating the same thing about, “the secret” but, this book has put everything together for, it’s joined information that I had been trying to understand for years. And really put the things I was looking for into perspective. I would highly recommend this book.

Life Changing - Wake the eff up!!!!

I loved the combination of science and mind through metaphysics, Quantum Physics, and use of historical references. Even better, it ties the 'religions' of the world to the creative source. Essentially harmonizing politics, religion, and faith into the Universal Consciousness. The same energy that Einstein, Tesla, and all the greats explained ...but were labeled by the "power brokers" of 'society' as nonsensical. Shunned for their science and even killed for their unwavering dedication to bring truth to light. The elite 1% literally hiding the truth from humanity by discrediting the truth being told by said true sayers (Einstein, Tesla etc.).

Thus, keeping humanity weakened by surrounding us in negativity all day every day. Through financial hardship(s), fight mentality, limiting our belief systems. As well as, the everyday news & television, which pours negativity into the world at an alarming rate. This 'negativity feed' allows them to remain as the elite 1% ... the "Power Brokers" of society as we know it. All while we serve as modern slaves, working day in and day out, only to serve someone else and not our own truth. Society is simply a negative thought process portrayed to billions by the elite 1%, used to keep us down in fear, negativity, and control. Creating their wealth and happiness, while sumulatenously ensuring our own unhappiness... wake up now!!!! This is not the first book I've read on the subject, but it is the easiest step to begin to understand...
be the change you want to see 🕯🦋🙏🌌💗

Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction

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. After getting turned on to this stuff, and you want to know more, I recommend looking into Ask and It Is Given by Esther & Jerry Hicks, The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer, and my favorite, The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire by Deepak Chopra. 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.

You're better off with the DVD

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 90-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.

Wonderful

Read it..over and over again until it clicks. 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.

perspective

I think it it a great book on audible but its a book that walks a fine line on being great and completely awful...let me explain...well, I believe your opinion of the book it going to be based solely on how literally you believe in the "secret" as described by the book ...meaning...if you take it as "if i think it..it well come "...you will think the book is a joke ..and idiotic..and some reviews i think reflect that...yet on the other hand I say its a great book because on the other side of things(how I take the message) is from the "perspective" that if you believe in something and keep a tunnel vision type focus on achieving it...anything is is possible..i think the book is truly about ones focus...simple as that...some say its like an 'adult fairytale" but isnt that the same as a person's having dream to create something from nothing (or like such goal as creating ones business,etc)...so again...how you take the words of the book will be how you view it...rather as a terrible book or great inspiration.

review of the audio only--not of the content

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:
1) the music is awful new age-y stuff. it's not at all necessary and what they picked was just terrible. it's not enough to distract from the reading, but it'll date the audio pretty quickly.
2) there are a couple of sections where the reader (the author) is clearly in love with her own ideas and you can hear the "look how amazing i am!" in her voice. it's kind off-putting in the sense that what she's describing isn't all that remarkable.

The Secret is Toxic Positivity

Have you ever been in a car accident? Have you ever gotten sick? Maybe a disability? According to this author, you have brought all these things upon yourself because your thoughts are not focused on the positive

I agree that a positive mindset can help you live a happy life. But The Secret tells us that happiness and gratitude are the only emotions we should allow in our lives. This kind of thinking is dangerous and encourages denial of reality.

Humanity has a wealth of circumstances and emotions. I think the positive mindset and daily gratitude are good takeaways from this book but it’s larger message that anyway who has experienced unfortunate circumstances has their own thoughts to blame is a toxic idea.

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.

Great production of an audio book

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...the message was good too. Full break down into the power of positive thinking. It has made me a more positive thinker.

fantastic

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.

Say what?

Interesting idea, but not presented with much basis in fact. Redundant in its presentation and a bit droll in content. The aggressive focus on material wealth was shallow and a bit kitchy.
