I love this book! I've been studying metaphysics and spirituality since I was about ten years old, and I've read just about everything out there from Catherine Ponder to Neville to Seth to Richard Bach, as well as the teachings of Jesus, Buddha, et al. I have studied with Bob Proctor, studied A Course in Miracles for eight years and have been studying Abraham-Hicks for the past six years.This book sums it all up so well. Whether you have been into this stuff for years or are just discovering it, I can't recommend a better place to start. I recognize so much of what's in the book from what Abraham teaches, but of course, they are universal truths so it's the same no matter who is teaching it. I'm excited that this book (and the DVD) is making these kinds of teachings mainstream. I'm so thrilled that Oprah just featured it on her show.I actually got the audiobook version and I highly recommend it. I put it on my iPod and listen to it every night as I'm falling asleep.
This book helped me changed my whole outlook. I am on a new path and happy. You have to read it and watch the DVD to really understand it.
I do believe in the secret, but really it's no secret at all. Just positive thinking. Some things are meant to happen and there's nothing you can do about it, but I do believe that if you live a positive life good things do come to you. I guess you can say it worked for me. After reading this book I wanted to try to see if it worked. So I kept saying that I got the job that I'd been wishing for. I had applied and was waiting for a call back. I ended up getting like 4 calls for jobs! I swear to god! It's always like that, it seems. Like "when it rains, it pours". But I'm happily employed now. I don't know if it was because of "the secret" or not but I did try it out on that. The book was more or less like little lists and letters compiled together. It's not really anything I'd pass along to anyone.
I love the concept. Perspective is a big deal and I believe in much of what Covey says and you get what you first create in the mind. If you ignore the pyramid-scheme-esque, purple-haired, old lady, televangelist feel of the whole thing it will have a beneficial effect on your thinking.
