I really liked this book. Here are some of my favorite quotes-

47- It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
-Epictetus

49- Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.
-Gautama Buddha

94- Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment.
-Lao Tzu

140- Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
-Albert Einstein

141- Everything is possible for the person who believ

Byrne proves there are suckers born every minute – and they buy lots of her books. She is the Jimmy Swaggart of literature. She refuses to give interviews. I would too, if I were her. She has nothing to say. Interviewing her would be like watching Barbie think.
The world is lost in a sea of love and light. The Desperati spend billions every year on The Secret and its clones. Visualisation is lovely, but these authors confuse positive thinking with positive action. You can think as much as you li

I was really in need to read some motivational books , and this book was a good choice ^^

here some quotes :

1. "Life is supposed to be fun! When you're having fun, you feel great and you receive great things! Having fun brings the life you want, and taking things too seriously brings a life you have to take seriously."

2. "Let go of the things you don't love about your childhood, and keep the things you love. Let go of the things you don't love about your adolescent and adult years, and keep th

I listened to the audio book, which despite it's potential for cheesiness, I did enjoy. I'm not sure if I would have gotten the same thing out of just reading the book. Hearing Byrne's passion probably helped.

I know some people think "it's nothing new." Of course it's nothing new; there's nothing new under the sun. Yes, it's saying the same thing as The Secret; there's only one thing to say!

I liked the anecdotes; part of me wants to question them and say they're made up, but I know from my own l

This book was exactly what I was expecting. A nice follow-up to The Secret. It just builds upon what was learned in The Secret about the law of attraction. The Power's description states that you don't need to have read The Secret in order to benefit from The Power. I would agree with that, but I think it definitely helps. I honestly believe you get out of life what you put into it, and whatever you put out there comes right back to you. I found this to be a very uplifting, encouraging, and moti ...more

You would be better off smoking a joint or taking DMT rather than reading this shit.

You should probably take DMT and trip, you will learn more about yourself and how the universe functions than reading this crap.

Rhonda is con-woman through and through. She learned the ropes of manipulating the public by working in television.

Here are some examples of her see-though bullshit:

“Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable.” ― Rhonda Byrne

Really? So, what everyone sees is 1% o

Okay, so I read this quite a while ago.
I have no idea how his whole Law of Attraction thing is still holding its own. Apparently, it's been so successful that the author decided to write a sequel? Wow .. just wow.

Let me try to count the things that are wrong with this:

One: The fact that the advice in this book is marketed as some big secret when in fact it's not. Not really.If you haven't read this gem let me save you the hassle. The secret is this: "If you think about something you long and ha

There's nothing really new per se in The Power that wasn't already explained in The Secret. But sometimes it helps to have things reiterated a time or ten or to have them explained in a different way. There are also a lot of good techniques provided to make things start to work in your favor. I can understand why some might be disappointed, frustrated with the repetition or expecting something all new, but the truth is that people rarely get it the first time they are exposed to something. And o ...more

I honestly don't understand why the reviews are so bad for this? Okay so the things that were bad about the book was the repetitiveness. She kept repeating herself and saying the same things again and again. It is also a bit cheesy.
But I do understand how it is true and how it works. I tried the things and I did get what I wanted from it and my life HAS been better since. I KNOW that the things written in this book is not rubbish or Ludacris! I know it is true! I mean people who think this is r

This book was life changing and completely amazing. I would suggest it to everyone i know, and who they know, and to anyone who would listen honestly. With this book I have gotten so many things in life that ive wanted, trip to Europe, car, the job i wanted and the pay, and much more. So, i suggest this book to anyone who wants to get all that they want in life :) This book is amazing in every way.

Amazingly wonderful.
A book for Rhonda Byrne; author for the Secret. I haven't read the secret but I think the power conveys the same message that was in the secret, from a different angle.

I heard the audio book and it was amazing, with the author reading her book with passion and love, great production and sound effects, I assure you you are going to love this book.

I believe in the power, and after listening to this book I feel better thinking the way Rhonda was suggesting.

Why did I read it? I don't know. I really disliked "The Secret" and after reading it, I made a review, in which I was trying to restrain Rhonda Byrne from writing more books. But she wrote another one and - moreover I've read this t h i n g.
And it was such a horrible experience!

Ok.

This is a review Of this book and Rhonda's teachings overall:

I've been a bit sceptic of these teachings as the secret and the power have a lot of holes and hype... Though without faith nothing is possible yet faith without action is useless. Rhonda's books/teaching miss this aspect and lead people a bit astray in a notion that can't endure.
Lately in my life I have come to terms with the fact that life or "universe" as Rhonda likes to call it, is not a Jeanie in a bottle to be rubbbed. Rathe

This beautifully designed hardcover was given to me by a friend. I had read The Secret and wasn't quite sure the author would have to say.

Right now, I'm halfway through The Power and must say that it is a mixture of things I needed to be reminded of and then some things I didn't quite know. There's this focus on love in the book, but in practice it's more about what you like, so it's less effortful than the kind of loving that, for instance, Scott Peck spoke about.

Anyhow, it looks like the key t

Really loved this book, very much! I can say that if you haven't read "The Secret" before, you won't need to if you read this! It talks about the greatest power of our life, that if we know it and tap into it right, we will be just almighty!
I feel that this book is written with real love, with real joy and not just for mere money.. Loved how Byrne wrote and expressed her feelings and thoughts and situation with "The Power".. though she could just stop repeating the same talk over and over ^^" d

I had the prenotion that the so called 'motivational/inspirational' books are basically a clichéd nonsense. After skimming through this one, I can fairly say it didn't disappoint me.
The thing about books aside from its annoying preachy tone and over simplifying things and of course the overall generalization is the fact that the author did not bother to mention why or how 'the power' works.
“Absolutely everything you experience in your life is a result of what you have given in your thoughts an

The author suggests we must make a paradigm shift in our way of thinking to harness the powers of the universe (may I suggest "God") in our own behalf. Her book centers on the principle of the "law of attraction"; or in otherwords, we receive back what we send out. Within that law, Byrne suggests that we should focus on "love", or loving those things which we truly desire. She asserts it is wrong to focus attention on the negative; if we will focus instead on the positive by "imagining" or "visu ...more

This is a follow up book to The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. It doesn't really matter which one you read first, because this one picks up where The Secret left off, but at the same time, is basically repeating what was said before except in a new way. This new way, is by The Power, or intention of Love. Where as The Secret introduced to us what The Law of Attraction is, and how to use it and benefit us... that is just the vehicle or vessel which will bring us the life we desire. The Power, or Love, i ...more

The Power is like a guide to the universe. I took this book to heart and learned a lot from it. The attractiveness to the book is almost magical and spectacular in regards to how it connects to the reader. Every teenager should read this book. Great health, impeccable relationships, a career anyone would love to have, a life filled with happiness, and the money you need to have everything you want, all come from the ideas and topics of...The Power! The power to be great, to conquer your biggest ...more

I know how Rhonda Byrne and her 'Secret' have been criticized, but seriously people, all the woman is saying is to think positively and be happy and good will return to you. Most of us believe in karma which means if you do good the universe will reward you and if not it will harm you, so this isn't that difficult to believe.

I enjoyed the book, it's uplifting and i think its sending out a very positive message to love everything around you more. The quotes from many great people have supported h

A sequel to the book "The Secret" by the same author. Like the first book, The Secret of the Power restates the laws of attractions A way of life that relies on changing your attitude toward all things to make your life amazing. This theory of life can be found in hundreds of books published before and after the original "The Secret" came out in 2006. For me The Secret of the Power was easier to read then most. It is written from one point of view with short inspirational quotes throughout. It i ...more

It’s based on the law of attraction and claims that positive thinking can create life-changing results such as increased wealth, health, and happiness. I agree with parts of it and believe thinking positively is a start and can help to create life-changing results but on it’s own, it’s not enough.

One section mentions that if you want the perfect partner, you must imagine that the person is truly with you right now; instead of sleeping in the middle of your bed, sleep on one side because your par

I read this book expecting it to be like the secret .. By this I mean to increase in me as a reader the appetite for life .. And it did :). Yes, I do agree with people who think that the writer seems to be recycling the secret, but So what ? If you liked the secret, and wanted to put yourself in a similar vibe then(The Power)can be a good choice for you." The Secret" focuses on what you WANT, and "The Power" focuses on what you LOVE which is the same idea. Talk about what you love, surround your ...more

~"I'M LOVING IT!"~

This book is almost word to word Ester and Jerry Hiks' "The Law Of Attraction" book. Yet I gave it 4 Stars and not less: for the content, which is timeless and ever so true.

Yet for myself I found "The Secret" to be a more practical read: I know how to be grateful, I am feeling it immediately having THANKED anything for a couple of times. It is more challenging with love. The phrases like "you should love it with all your heart!" no matter how passionately spoken, leave me with

This title was exceptionally interesting. Rhonda Byrne (with a lot of borrowing from noted historical figures) promotes the idea that negativity on any level only promotes more negativity. Don't be misled by the preconception that we are all going to join hands and create world peace...we're not. There is always going to be some chaos or harm in the world...this is not that book.
Rhonda Byrnes talks about freeing yourself from the destroying cycle of hate and negativity. If you want to experienc

I really enjoyed reading The Power. Reading this book made a lot of sense to me why so much is going wrong in my life right now.

Basally this book is the sequel to The Secret. The secret tell us about the Law of attraction. It's a ancient belief and universal law. Whatever happens in your life you attract it by

1. Your thoughts
2. Words
3. Actions

Positivity = Positivity
Negativity = Negativity

The Power tells us how we can achieve being more positive though Love.

I just love the practical way that Rhonda explains how to approach everyday life. Simple and yet powerful, the strength of this book is the colorful pages and short quick read. But the message is worth remembering for a whole lifetime. I have come so far, back in 2004 I remember reacting with total disbelief when someone suggested to me that people around me would change if I simply changed the way I reacted to them. Since reading this I have 'seen' so many more ambulances and fire trucks and I ...more

What is this book about?
The Book talks about how you can have just about anything you want by believing in the law of attraction or as mentioned in this book the law of love. Ask. Believe. Receive. Its a really powerful and positive book and since I m a staunch follower of the Secret, my faith has increased multi-fold. As we all know everything is energy and everyone has a frequency. we don't get what we want because we are not on the same frequency. So whatever you want in life you can get prov

If you've ever read "The Secret"by Rhonda Byrne, or watched the movie, BTW I'm a repeat offender, you will get a supercharged boost from "The Power"! It follows the same positive energy principals as the Secret, however, it's focus is on using the potent energy of love to manifest real change in your life. I found many of the suggestions to be extremely uplifting, and while not that complicated many of these ideas could be easily incorporated into daily life. It is no secret that we could all us ...more
