I had heard about the law of attraction before, but never took the time to investigate what it truly meant. As the book unraveled and began to reveal "The Secret," and how to apply it into my life immediately, I allowed myself to be open in receiving whatever insight I could in order to help me overcome several difficulties in my life and achieve a better quality of life overall.
By the middle of the book I chose to practice some of the techniques that were briefly described through the text just to try it out. For the past 3 weeks I have had pain in the middle of my back. I had even recently gone to a chiropractor to help alleviate my symptoms, which only worked temporarily. The moment I tried the technique of closing my eyes, clearly my mind, and speaking affirmations of confidence and healing something changed. I did not realize the pain in the middle of my pain, which I had been experiencing for weeks, was gone until about 5-10 minutes later when I stopped to stretch. I am not a blogger, I do not receive free books, or any type of compensation for this or any review I ever write. I also am usually one to dispel instant claims of miraculous effects occurring just from reading a text or saying a chant, so when I tell you my pain left and has not been back since I am shocked in a way. I still am secretly wondering when the pain will reappear, but by the continuation of applying the law I highly doubt it will. From that moment I figured if it's that easy then I wonder what life will be like once I apply it to every area of my life.
By the end of the book and my own personal testament, I was hooked. This is a life changing book and I see why it has sold millions and millions of copies around the world. It really works if you apply and believe. After previewing The Power and The Magic, I intend to read those two as well. This has easily become one of my all-time favorite books and I highly recommend it. Just try it. What do you have to lose?

I read half of it and can only assume that my friend has in fact lost her mind.
If you are looking for some good guidance on how to live life DO NOT buy this! I sent mine back for a refund in disgust!
You've been warned.
So I got this book and now I am trying to apply what it says to my life. I don't want millions of pounds or anything fancy, but I do want what everyone else has a loving Wife, Car, and Home to call my own.
These I believe by the scope of this book are achievable and realistic goals that I am setting myself. So it remains to be seen if this book truly can do what it says it can.
After reading a couple of chapters so far all I can see is a brilliant book to teach you how to feel good in yourself. To make yourself feel happy even when sad and depressed. That alone is worth more than any amount of millions. There are plenty of millionaires that are not happy at all and struggled to make more millions which in turn makes them just as miserable.
This book teaches you how to look at your emotions and thoughts and feelings and change your thinking to a better place. If you are looking for a load of quick results then don't bother. This book will teach you how to make yourself feel good about yourself and in turn, attract good things to you, but remember good things come to those who wait. If you cant then you won't get.
As books go this is old news now, but I got it for 6 pounds second hand, hardback and in good condition. For me, it is not worth the 14 pounds brand new price, but each to their own. There are many different books since using the same techniques, but with clearer examples.
If you expect to become a rich person after this book, then you may become one, but remember as the book says you need to really believe you already have the money and already are rich.
I will update this if my life changes and I do get a job and get a nice woman in my life. I will update this if I do get that house and what every average person has. I will not set a time limit, but as I reach my goals I will update this review.
This book transformed me and my life. It's a life changing book, I must say. The cover is so good and so the title.
About the content in the book-
All that we are is the result of what have thought. We are made of our thoughts; we are moulded by our thoughts. The above was a meaning of shloka from bhagavadgita. Buddha,swami Vivekananda are also some of great humans whose teachings tells us that the essence of human was his thoughts. THIS BOOK IS A GOOD ONE which tells us about law of attraction that repeated thoughts about what we want will create a force of attraction which attracts our goal towards us.
Because our thoughts become our words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits led you to your destiny.
