“The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne Review

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.

This book is another sort of a mix of nonfiction and self help book which as we all know some people will love and others will hate it. And there is nothing between hate or love when it comes to books like this. 

The whole idea is pretty good. Because it’s for the most part that “good attracts good” and “bad attracts bad” which sort of make sense which a lots of self help book lacks now on days. 

The writing style is bad, for the most part the writing is nothing but “do this and this will happened if you believe”. The writing style will make some people hate this book. Because it almost feels like the author didn’t care about putting good enough effort to this book. And all she did want is to collect pay checks for this book. 

This book could have had the potential to be so much better if the author would just cut out the quotes of other people and but more effort in the writing style. 

The whole book for the most part is just a collection of quotes from doctors, scientist, random people and the rest of humanity. And there is no origin story to “the secret” or something supporting that’s the real thing. All we get is that Albert Einstein believed in it and it’s real. 

There is no background to it and no evidence to it. If you want to believe it, no one on this blog is telling you that you can’t. I’m just saying that some people needs evidence supporting everything. 

I give this book 4 / 5
