1.0 out of 5 stars The secret is send cash and you will get nothing, August 22, 2011
This review is from: The Secret (Hardcover)
I would give this a minus if I could. Save your money. You will get nothing for your investment other than a bunch of babble and double talk.
Folks there is no free lunch in life and there is no one secret and that is the true secret. My wife got it from a friend. She said read this.

I wanted to keep an open mind so I read it. If I had paid for it I would have asked for my money back.
Most motivational speakers /magic insight books are snake oil at best. The authors making a fortune preying on the hopeful, upset, and damaged human beings looking for comfort and reassurance but never doing anything of consequence themselves other than espousing babble as solutions for happiness and comfort. This Secret is the bottom of the barrel.

There is not one thing in this book that you can take away from your reading that is going to improve the quality of your life or make you happier. Nothing that will last longer than the reading the last page.

Like most of these types of books, ( words without actions, false promises, and delusional simple untruths) someone claiming something that does not exist, but ideas that appeal to the human spirit in our darkest moments. Times we are lost and down. But sadly you will only be throwing your money away. Give it to charity instead.

Bruce Bain says:
Andy, it is amazing how many people are passing copies of this book to others, with recommendations.
Unfortunately, such people are unable to articulate objective support for the teachings of the 24 Master Teachers.

Neither can they explain how Master Teacher James Arthur Ray used the Law of Attraction to "attract" a conviction on three counts of
Negligent Homicide.

I can explain it... murderous, hateful thoughts and feeleings. Attraction is attraction.

Thank you for the comment "Rolio".

ISSUE THE FIRST

=======================================================

"I can explain it... murderous, hateful thoughts and feeleings."-----sentence 1 of a 2-sentence comment by "Rolio" on Aug 26, 2011 11:19:19 AM PDT regarding the review of "The Secret" by
Rudy Andl on Amazon.com

====================================================


.

.
(1) Your comment is not entirely clear.
Is it your intention to show that Master Teacher James Arthur Ray is demonstrating murderous and hateful thoughts and feelings, since he was indicted for three counts of Negligent Homicide?

.

.

(2) Is it your intention to show that reviewer Rudy Andl and reviewer Bruce Bain are employing
murderous and hateful thoughts and feelings, in their reviews and commentary concerning "The Secret"?

Your remarks are vaguely constructed I think.

.

.

ISSUE THE SECOND

=================================================

"Attraction is attraction."----sentence 2,

==================================================

.

.

(1) This is a tautology, and tautoulogies do not generally express any veridical power.

(2) The Question remains "Rolio". If the Law of Attraction exists as a Scientific Law, then there will be Scientific Evidence for it. In fact, there are 18 known Scientific Laws currently acknowledged by Science, and the Law of Attraction is not one of those candidates even considered by Scientists for inclusion in that category.

(3) The point here, is that the 24 Master Teachers and Rhonda Byrne, have engaged in a bit of creative fabrication which is intended to foist a misrepresentation of Fact upon the reading public.

The Forces measured by science, are in fact, objectively verifiable, and no scientific measurements have ever been published by the 24 Master Teachers and Rhonda Byrne which have been subjected to Scrutiny in a Peer Reviewed Scientific Publication.

.

-------------------------------------------------------------

CONCLUSION

It seems you have difficulty coming to terms with what the rest of the world refers to as
Reality. This is why mankind has developed over the centures, specific classifications for knowledge.
Science, Philosophy, Law and Theology, all serve to place human conception in an appropriate context.
These contexts, are classifications which Rhonda Byrne and the 24 Master Teachers seem to be unfamiliar with.

It goes without saying then, that their publication is poorly and inadequately researched,
at the very least. At the worst, it is an attempt to misrepresent Scientific Fact.
