This was my second time reading this book and I got benefits from it both times. One little thing I picked up this time that I might have missed the first time: If you are thinking "I wish I had a new bicycle, I wish I had a new bicycle", that is what you will get. A new bicycle? No. You will get you wishing you had a new bicycle, because that is the thought you are putting out. If you put out the thought of already having the bicycle, that you know you have it, the results will be different. ...more

I will go on record saying that I believe I create my own destiny, my own reality and some of what happensto me. The law of Attraction is what The Secret is about, and this book uses quantum mechnanics to explain that law. Taylor is a scientist who initially scoffed at the idea of the secret, and then upon further exploration, has realized how we are connected to the universe and each other. Wow! The implications are enormous.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After hearing about the movie and watching it, I ~wanted~ to buy in, but couldn't swallow it despite so many credible people talking about it. Taylor, a NASA scientist, breaks down how quantum physics could be behind the the Secret. It's very accessible and gives the reader a great primer for how he thinks it works while tying in other luminaries in science and philosophy who seem to agree that there is something behind the curtain. I took one star away because I ...more

A richly informative book that adds a whole new dimension to the concept of The Secret. Its main drawback is Travis S. Taylor's casual writing style. For a concept that is already criticized for being too idealistic, you don't exactly augment its credibility when you explain it using allusions to Kung Fu Panda and The Karate Kid. Which is a shame because Taylor provides some EXCELLENT scientifically-backed evidence that The Secret is real. I really wish he would've elaborated more on these conce ...more

Amazing perspective! :)

Using quantum mechanics to explain the Law of Attraction...

I really love the Orchestrated Objective Reduction (Orc OR) thing about the brain, and those microtubules, and MAPs (microtubulin associated proteins) in neurons. :D This is so fascinating and intellectually delicious!!!

So (maybe) the Human Brain is a QUANTUM COMPUTER? 0_0 Ok....Guess this sounds nicer than mere machine...^^

I just can't wait till we see MORE Scientific Evidence to support this "Brain = Quantum Comp

I liked this book more for it's information about quantum physics than anything else. Hasn't convinced me of anything regarding "The Secret", but it has piqued my interest in quantum physics and the relation to the brain. ...more

For a book that contains so much science, particularly quantum physics, this was a surprisingly enjoyable and easy read. Seems Rhonda may well be onto something after all.....

Loved this book! One chapter was way over my head as far as science goes, but I got the gist of it. Excellent book for the scientific mind to understand the Law of Attraction.
