Recommends it for: Neurotic women
First off, I am a man. Secondly, this book mostly did not apply to me. I thought that if there were secrets every women should know, why shouldn't men know them as well? I mean, as long as they don't apply to feminine products, or other female-only areas, EVERYONE, not just women should know them too, right?

Although most of the advice in the book is good, I couldn't help feeling like it made women crazier than I had given them credit for, and I'm even engaged to a crazy woman now (self-admitted

An inspiring book. surprised me by its beautiful simple style and the way that her thoughts echoed things I said and believed as unchangeable. It could serve as the base for living a better life and for being a better person. I'm not fond of self-help books. Probably I would have never read this book,if it had not been for my friend who recommended this book as her favourite book :) and she was right it is one of my favoutites now :D

This is a spiritual self-help book that Barbara De Angelis wrote and shared with us how we can create the happy, fulfilled life we have always dreamed of by using ten principles for total spiritual and emotional fulfilment. Each of the ten principles is given its own chapter to explain to us how using each one of these principles can help us to create the kind of true freedom we are all seeking, the freedom that comes from knowing how to tap into a powerful inner state of confidence, clarity and ...more

A very good book that gave me one key insight that unlocked a dilemma in my head. Even if all the other information didn't go in, this piece made it worth the read.

It goes something like this:

When you love someone and they do not love themselves, they reject your love because you make them feel inadequate. If they don't love themselves, there is little you can do to transmute love through osmosis to them. Love comes from only one source: within us. People do not give us love.. but they stimulate

The premise of life as a process to develop to one's fullest potential while helping others to do the same is so clear in this book. It is absolutely comforting to recognize that one's choice to love oneself serves as a gatekeeper to all other success in every area of life. I found this book very beneficial and Dr. DeAngelis' style is very warm and clear.

Quote from page 9:

"When you go through each day expecting what is happening outside of yourself to make you happy, you are setting yourself up for failure. You are setting yourself up for misery. You make yourself a victim of circumstances you cannot control and become dependent upon others for your own state of joy and contentment."

I read this years ago, when I was going through some tough times. I can honestly say that it helped in so many ways and I have since bought it as a gift for a few friends and recommended it to many! I have revisited this book time and again and it always puts things into perspective again.
Samantha Tomes
Loved it. Down to earth, no-nonsense approach to a more spiritual existence. One of the difficult things about life is living in a finite world with infinite desires and aspirations. Learning to enjoy our human limitations while continuing to be open to change and growth is probably one of the greatest achievements in life.
Zehl Lhez
i have read this book for years now even without undergoing any problems in life and I think i must read it again since Im undergoing major crisis in life now.
Lamis Hosny
This is a life changing book. It can touch every single corner of your soul and can also make you reach for being the best version of yourself!
Rita
Interesting and easy read. Much like every other self-help book.
Author draws from her own experiences in life and others.
Lynda Jeffs
I was going through one of the worse times in my life...wanted to die in fact, when I went and looked for a book to read. Not sure "what" I wanted to read, I stumbled across this book...and read the back. I figured it wouldn't hurt - and started reading it...and couldn't put it down. It was THIS book that started this big change inside me...and one I would recommend to anyone who is having a hard time in life! Only I would change it to Secrets to Life everyONE should know!
Kathy
I've read a few of her books and have always enjoyed her sage advice. In this book, she presents practical principles and guidelines that are relatable. Mixed with her realness, transparency and tenderness (because she seems to really care about the reader). I'd recommend this book for anyone who may be in a season where lessons in personal and emotional fulfillment would prove to be helpful.
Jasmine Al-Sulami
It was Helpful : ) Although it had a little bit of philosophy but in a good way..

My favorite secrets are:

1- Your mind creates your experience of reality so make your ind your friend.

2- You must love yourself before loving others<<<<<< my best!!

3-Whatever the question love is the answer ... So TRUE...

Sophie Ngugi
Lovely book, so far read to principles that are critical, I have all it takes to be happy regardless of the circumstances around me and that my purpose in life it to grow. Whatever circumstances that happen in life should be opportunities for growth and I need to see them as such, opportunities for growth. Lovely
Mary Woody
This was a excellent read and the farther into it I got the better it was. I loved secrets six thru nine. I was surprised to learn that the author and I shared the same belief system as far as peoples roles in our lives go. I would recommend this book to everyone men and women alike.
Pasqualine
Can't get enough of it. This is a refresher as I've folded the top corner of almost every page to go back re-read!
Kelly Murray
DEFINITELY one of the top 3 books I've ever read. I've reached a turning point with this one. I finished it in less than 48 hours. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. I'm about to re-read it.
Ronalda Patricia
One of my non-Christian books that I like to keep reading years after years ;)

It helps me a lot.

I liked it, simple things that may look trivial, but they are not trivial at all, and not knowing them can change your life!

“If you look around you at the physical universe, you will see that it's nature is growth. Everything from the cells in your body to the planets orbiting the sun are constantly growing, constantly changing, constantly evolving. Nothing stays still. Nothing remains the same. So think about it - why would your life be the exception? Why would you be the only thing that exists in all of creation whose purpose isn't to grow?” 2 likes
