5.0 out of 5 stars MTV style enlightenment but it can work IF..., May 28, 2007

This review is from: The Secret (Extended Edition) (DVD)
If not for the Secret, I would never have heard about its source. The story begins with the poor downtrodden producer who receives a book from her daughter, takes a glimpse at it and becomes enthralled, with life-changing consequences. Being a curious and logical person, I wanted to know what that book was... Surprisingly, there is absolutely no reference to it. We learn that there is something called the Law of Attraction, but again we are given no clue about who came with that notion. You wonder how something so important as the Law of Gravity could have remained hidden for so long... (Try to keep the Law of Gravity a secret!) Nothing like a little Googling to discover what the Book is: it is called The Law of Attraction and you can find it right here at Amazon in written and audio versions. It was written by Esther and Jerry Hicks, 19 years ago I believe. So this is the secret behind the Secret: Rhonda Byrne approached the Hicks to make a documentary about the Law of Attraction for Australian TV. Gradually other former students and admirers of the Hicks were added to the documentary. The original run of the DVD featured the Hicks extensively. After they printed the first 200,000 copies, Rhonda's team of attorneys figured out that the Hicks were getting too much free exposure and wanted to renegotiate the terms of the contract, or else they would edit out every reference to the Hicks. Their reply was, predictably, do as you wish... The new version is ironically called "extended" when the most important segments were removed. Take whole grain flour, strip it from its most important nutrients, then sell it as "enriched" white flour, which is not good for your health. For me, the true revelation is Esther and Jerry Hicks' work, which is not at all materialistic... you'll find out for yourself... Anyway, I would never have discovered them if not for Rhonda Byrne, that's why she gets five stars.

Actually, the book that Rhonda refers to was NOT the Law of Attraction...if you go to the website you can download the book for free...it is titled...The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles. This book is where her discovery started. I have read it and found it to be more profound then The Secret. It actually shed a light on the Law of Attraction that I may not have otherwise have realized.
