A Review of “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne

I’ve been interested in the Law of Attraction for some time now – most people don’t understand it, or they think it sounds like complete nonsense. I’ve been applying some of the principles of the Law of Attraction for a while now, and recently started studying it more in depth through Rhonda Byrne’s books. The first of her books I read that really explained the Law of Attraction in more detail was The Secret.

The Secret starts out by laying out the basics of the Law of Attraction. Rhonda Byrne discusses how like attracts like, and our thoughts have a frequency – as we think our different thoughts, they’re sent out into the universe and attract all things on the same frequency. The eventually return to us. In subsequent chapters, Rhonda Byrne discusses how to use The Secret, and the different processes that are part of the Secret – expectation, gratitude, thankfulness, and visualization. She then discusses in more detail how to use the Secret to attract more money, better relationships, health, improve the world, and improve yourself and life in general.

How to Use this Book

Unlike many books, The Secret doesn’t provide any actual exercises you can do. Rhonda Byrne does provide many quotes from other authors and philosophers throughout the book, which will hopefully start readers thinking about how they can apply The Secret to the different parts of their life that they want to work on.


If you’re interested in the Law of Attraction and want to learn how to apply it in your life, I definitely recommend reading The Secret and other books by Rhonda Byrne that I’ll be reviewing on this blog. If you have read “The Secret” and started applying its principles in your life, I’d love to hear your comments – please feel free to comment below.
