I think it's impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves.

The Secret - Rhonda Byrne

Genre: Self-help/Inspirational/Philosophy

This book is an inspiration book to help you live your life the way you want to. It's to help you learn to be happy with what you have, and to learn how to get what you want in life.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.

In this book, you'll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life -- money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You'll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that's within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.

The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers -- men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

I liked how they referenced Aladdin in this. It makes Aladdin and his genie seem more legit. I feel happier after having read this book, even more so for having completed reading it. My goal was to finish reading this before 7am, and it's not even 5:45am yet, so I guess I achieved my goal. This book is useful to anyone who wants to learn how to live a happier life and to get the things they want out of life, no exceptions. I am now using what I learned from this book in my life, even before having finished it.
