The Secret in my view basically introduces you to the law of attraction and gives an introduction to some of the teachers and the teachings of the law of attraction. When reading the book, you will realize however, that the book does not go that deep into the practices of the law of attraction but, if you are someone who has ever wondered what the “law of attraction” fuss is all about, a good place to start would be here. A friend of mine did say that the book was overrated because it’s too basic (I think it’s because he has read books like Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, etc.). However, I think if you haven’t read any of these books, The Secret would be a good place to start. So, basically this is the book that provides the platform and then the rest of the teachings would follow. For example, I have learned that there are many ways or practical ways to apply the law of attraction to my life however, not all of them work for me. I think after reading the book, and if you want to know more about these teachings you will have to choose what works for you. I’ve also heard some people being skeptical about the law of attraction and where does a religion like Christianity fit into the equation? Well, if you know what the bible says about faith, you will know where the teachings of The Secret comes in, and then there’s about asking and believing you will receive. My advice to you would be; when you read these books, you should not be gullible and just believe everything that you read. Be an open-minded, discerning reader and make your own judgments!
