The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Secret is nothing more than a discussion on the law of attraction and visualization. It’s put together by the author, and testimonies from other successful people in the field. It was interesting to read, but I feel, like others who have reviewed this book, that this information is not new.
Not new, but put together all in one place and made accessible. I do believe that it was stretched out somewhat, and numerous quotes were used to hammer the information home. I did enjoy the chapters on specific topics, however.
It is an interesting read, visualization is a helpful tool, but it is nothing that we haven’t already heard about.

Not too long ago I finally became a member of my local public library – a rather antiquated way of procuring books, but still a wonderful way to find books and meet others who like to read. So I picked up a couple of books, one is a self-help book describing the law of attraction and the other is crime fiction classic.

What connects a movie star, an archaeologist, a French maid, a prime minister, a wealthy dowager, and an Italian count? Crime, of course – and the master crime-solver, Hercule Poirot. Half of them have fallen victim to a terrible crime; the others have fallen under suspicion. This collection brings together 14 stories, 14 crimes, and twice as many suspects from Poirot’s mysterious adventures around the globe. This time, he investigates the mysterious murders that followed the opening of Pharaoh Men-her-Ra’s tomb.
