I am currently reading this book. I am on day 9.
I think the first remarkable change in me - is that I am really grateful for a lot of things... Its a nice feeling. Take this book and go diligently with the recommendation..
It is a not a rapid read... :)

Updated review. Now I am on day 18. Its working. Am smiling most of the times

Well, I did read it through 24 days. I some how lost it on the 24 day & I really regret it. I might start all over again.

Highly recommended by me. Loved it & the

I've been following the exercises every day from the Magic - to check out how they went go to http://www.findtherealyou.co.uk/blog/...

Here is my full book review: Rhonda Byrne is the lady who created the popular film and bestselling book, The Secret and her sequel book The Power. Her experiences in life led her to discover the Law of Attraction which then turned her life around. Her amazing ability to see the best in everything, to feel love for everyone and everything and to help so many people

So far this book is a painful slog through a torturous marsh of tangled words. If I wasn't already annoyed that the book is basically rehashing all the same messages from "The Secret" but replacing the "law of attraction" with "being thankful" , then I would still be tearing out my hair from the repetitiveness of it all. Not only that, but the author throws out ridiculous claims about studies that were done without any proof, and tells you to "rub your magic rock" without telling me how it works ...more

The Secret taught the world the law of attraction. The Power unleashed the law of love. In Byrne's latest book she drills down into something mentioned in the earlier two works: the law of gratitude.

Practice gratitude every day, Byrne teaches, and your life will transform. Studies done in the field of positive psychology advocate the life-transforming power of keeping a gratitude journal. Byrne walks you through how gratitude affects each area of life, health, wealth and relationships. But this

must read for all, everyone must not only read but also strictly follow this until it becomes a habit, my life is changing and i am sure it will change if i follow it throughout my life........

I very much subscribe to this stuff. I like it a lot, and it has completely changed my life. That's the disclaimer here. If it's not your thing and you've tried The Secret or The Power then this is more than likely to inspire the same feelings those gave you. However, if, like me, you've read those and gained plenty from them, but found yourself sliding into the less positive in recent times, then The Magic, essentially a much more straightforward, plain-speaking, less mystic, more direct instru

Whether you agree with its principles or not, this book accomplishes to put you in a state of mind of being happy and grateful for all that you have and I believe that is a trait we should always carry we us. In general it did help me just feel more joy about my days and situations. It was almost like a warm mothering blanket that told you everything is going to be ok. I myself, once I shifted my energies to be more grateful and happy, saw myself attracting better things and opportunities in my ...more

To me, there is something vaguely insidious about this book. The ideas in the book are not new - most of it is standard law of attraction stuff, which is fine, and I am totally on board with all of that. However, the idea that the big stuff in life hinges on how grateful we are is a bit disturbing. On the one hand, yes, it is very, very important to be grateful for the simple things in life: oxygen (some people cannot breathe on their own), the ability to walk (ditto), see, type messages to each ...more

I found this book to be incredibly hokey. Really, it was repetitive, and cheesy, and I had to force myself to finish it.

Nevertheless, Byrne is on to something important in this book, and I found that making myself slog through it helped me to get in touch with the power of gratitude to transform my experience of life.

I gave up on the exercises early on as they were time consuming and difficult to fit into my already packed life. However, just reading a chapter or three every day or so had a stro

I am so GLAD I bought this book!

The Magic, by Rhonda Byrne (creator of the popular film and best selling book, The Secret), is not a book to just read. It is an interactive journey designed to help you experience gratitude on a very deep level. I will be forever grateful to Rhonda Byrne for showing me how to express my gratitude. EXPERIENCING the MAGIC of gratitude through EXPRESSING gratitude is exactly what this book is all about. Only halfway through the book I began experiencing a magnificen

My favourite of Rhonda Byrne's books so far. Easy to read and apply, and so profound. This book has literally changed the way I live my life. So very grateful to her for writing it!

I loved 'The Secret' movie when it first came out, and I do believe we all have the power to manifest our life (and are in fact doing so every minute of the day, whether we are conscious of the fact, or not). So this is a good reminder to do it consciously. This book is all about Gratitude - and offers 28 daily practices to ingrain gratitude into your thinking. And that can't be bad for anyone!! In this day and age, when people seem to spend more time focussing on what they don't have, than appr ...more

This book gave you the secrets on how to "improve" your life in 28 days. If you want this magic to work, surely you should read this book slowly and read each sentence until you understand what does it mean. I am absolutely stunned on how much gratitude can bring to you. I've completed the book and i still continue to put gratitude in each day i live. It's wonderful.

This was the dumbest book I've skimmed in a long time. They could have summed it up in 4 words. Be Grateful for Everything.

28 days of learning how to be grateful. I can deal with that :)
Ding Ong
Well, one word sums up this book. Gratitude.

However, this author managed to write an entire book on this seemingly simple word. It does get repetitive after a few chapters as it explores the same value over and over again while reiterating its importance. Its written as a 'guidebook' in which over 28 days of practising gratitude can change your life. Well, it seemed rather absurd as i was reading it. It appears to be more of self-denial from my point of view.

Still i believe strongly in gratitude

Rhonda Byrne's first book 'The Secret' was one of the life changing books I've read in my entire lifetime so far. And my expectations from 'The Magic' was huge. The book is mainly about the attitude of gratitude and sadly it is only about that. The book's language is very simple and very impactful and I totally agree with the concept. I think this is great read of you haven't read 'The Secret.'But if you who already read 'The Secret' this may feel a bit stretched out. The idea is good but elonga ...more

She's BACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK, with a new hocus-pocus mixed bag of new/old age wisdoms and aphorism. She's paced herself out this time around - 28 chapters labelled as "Days" - I smell a magical seminar just around the corner.

Quote on the first page of the book reads "By this means you will acquire the glory of the whole world" THE EMERALD TABLET (CIRCA 3,)))-5,000 BC) - Huh?

Why do I feel like Dorothy going to see the Wizard of Oz after reading this?

Giving this book also a 3 out of 5 starts. This is the second book after The Secret.
Well with this book the writer is trying to remind us so far how it used to be when we were kids and believe in magic, dreams can come true, life is like a magic. The book is a lot like The Secret only said with different words and giving task to do everyday something added to the previous once. Each day that passes you are told/ asked to add one more task to the previous one (have not try to do anything from t

The Magic - By Rhonda Bryne

Very helpful and a very smooth read.
Easy to understand and fluid language.
Lets hope this brings MAGIC to my life..

I completed the 28 days exercise and it's working like magic. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to bring magic to their life.

Be grateful and thank every thing around you, air, water, atmosphere, weather, health, arms, legs, bike, car, mobile, internet, computer, family, friends and each any everything that's around you.

I just received this book and it is great! It is not really meant to be read at one or two sittings...but is a 28 day plan to change your life using GRATITUDE. Very powerful and the days are broken into very doable steps. I will post back on April 29th and let everyone know how it works...hopefully like MAGIC!
Mary Alice Sexton
I will tell you after 28 days. I am only on day 2.

ok - common sense - be happy for what you have.....
Sarah Stowe
The Magic is a phenomenal book to help pave the way for getting the abundance you deserve in life. Through gratitude all things can be achieved and it is all explained here. The 28 day program covers all aspects of life, from health to relationships to work and self. After the program the book shows you how to continue practicing what you have learned to continue receiving. If you are stuck in a rut in your life and feel as though you are going nowhere, this is the book to pick up and read! I am ...more

It's true that the bestseller book 'The Secret' has made positive change in my life at that time when I first read it. But actually, afterwards & by time I start losing that inner feeling of power it gave me. On the contrary here comes now 'The Magic' which -from my own personal view- is easier to practice & to hold on for a longer period of time!
For 2 reasons: First, I found the tool being used closer to my mind to apply & to my heart to understand which is "gratitude & countin

This book changed my life! proud of going through all the 28 practices. And at the end I discovered the Secret!

I am still reading the book and i am on day 7. The first thing that i gain from The Magic is that i started thinking positive and feeling much happier then before.

Though the exercises are time consuming so i am doing only 1 exercise at a time as Time management is not possible to do all exercises simultaneously every day. I have just started with the 1st exercise and will continue it till 27th day and then move on to the other one.

The Book is really helpful to release the stress and misgivings b

I have just started reading it and I am loving it !

A more practical approach - gives you actual steps to follow, but the bottom line here is being truly grateful for the all the wonderful things in your life.

I have read The Secret and The Power, previous books by Rhonda.

I very much enjoyed The Power....all about the power of love...

And it seems The Magic is all about the power of gratitude.

Wonderful stuff....love it all !!!

The Magic in a word is gratitude. The focus of this book is to bring more gratitude into your life. Chapter by chapter Rhonda shares steps on how to bring thanksgiving into all aspects of ones life. Byrne talks about how gratitude has dramatically changed her life for the better and she assures her readers that gratitude will do the same for them.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Magic and found it encouraging and engaging. Thank you Rhonda for another inspiring book.
Wiccanmoon JulieJenks
I'm only on page 12 so far. But do like this book quite a bit. It's all about positive empowerment for a wonderful life. I think I will take a lot from this book and apply to my own life. I like the 10 things I'm thankful and the reasons why daily list already. Although I've actually only done it once. It is on my mind often. I just have to stop what I'm doing when thinking of it, and commit to doing the list.
