All you need is a good title it seems. After that all you need is a bunch of Amazon log-ons so that you can write glowing references.
This book is the most appallingly written book ever--there are elementary spelling, grammatical and factual errors that any real publisher would have spotted straight away, on every page.
Apparently, India doesn't need a capital letter, and was ruled by the English (sic) for only 90 years, while Warren Buffet (sic) invented Microsoft Windows.
The author has just shamelessly stolen the most cliched parts from other pop-psych books such as Greene and Covey and has presented them (poorly) as if they are Earth-shattering revelations. There's more insight on the Oprah show.
The book is something which has been presented to turn a quick buck: double spaced, big font, with new topics starting every couple of pages immediately following empty space.
The author spends the first 30 pages explaining why this book is awesome, and "forbidden" why by reading it you are "trapped". He then rehashes some stuff in the middle before devoting the end 30 pages to re-rehashing what he's already covered, except this time with bullet-points!
All this from a book which is only 148 pages long.
I'm really interested in some of the reviews for this book--most of the ones that give this book 5 stars were written by people who reviewed and rated the book more than once, on the same day and also seem to have very poor grammatical skills....hmmmm.
Give this a wide berth, and save your money
I am sure that some people have been able to obtain varying positive results from The Secret. However, the vast majority of its readers will derive little or no benefit from it, for reasons too diverse to cover here in this review. If you would like to read The Secret's reviews, please look this title up and see for yourself.
This book methodically shows you how to really decide what you want from life, craft a plan to achieve your goals, and ways to keep up your initiative. If you will use the picture of the book to read the table of contents, you will note that it shows that the book sets a trap for you.
Yes indeed, the author does set a mental trap for you leaving you with only two basic choices on what to do with the information you have now discovered; You can stay where you are, or you can utilize the material and become a "Force Of Nature!"
There is nothing mystical or magical about the contents of this book. What this book does is to show you how to start thinking for yourself! No small achievement today. A few people achieve great things in their life, while most of us muddle through life wondering what happened when we get older.
If you read this book and actually follow through with the contents, you will not be waking up years later wondering what happened to your life.
