'The Secret' or an Obvious Promotion?

Even if you have not read it you have probably heard about the book 'The Secret' by Rhonda Byrne. It is the book millions have been talking about. Personally, I have read this book in order to understand why everyone is so impressed but unfortunately I found no reason. 

Book's main message is that you are the main secret, power of your success, that we are the result of our thoughts. This confuses me even more. Well, yes the message is good but it is not new and it has nothing to do with extraordinarity. Yes, interesting book, right ideas. But for myself I found nothing that I did not know. 

The book was so successful that film was created in 2006. However, it is worth noting that I really liked the way they promoted the book. The film consists of a series of interviews related to the idea of thinking. The book and the movie attracted interest from media figures such as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Larry King as well as criticisim from other poeple and press.


The key point is that there really is no secret.
