The Secret. by Rhonda Byrne

A year ago, my life had collapsed around me. I'd worked myself into exhaustion, my father died suddenly, and my relationships with my work colleagues and loved ones were in turmoil. Little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest gift.
I'd been given a glimpse of a Great Secret—The Secret to life. The glimpse came in a hundred-year-old book, given to me by my daughter Hayley. I began tracing The Secret back through history.I couldn't believe all the people who knew this. They were the greatest people in history: Plato, Shakespeare, Newton, Hugo,Beethoven, Lincoln, Emerson, Edison, Einstein.
Incredulous, I asked, "Why doesn't everyone know this?" A burning desire to share The Secret with the world consumed me, and Ibegan searching for people alive today who knew The Secret.
One by one they began to emerge. I became a magnet: as I began to search, one great living master after another was drawn to me. When I discovered one teacher, that one would link to the next, in a perfect chain. If I was on the wrong track, something else would catch my attention, and through the diversion the next great
teacher would appear. If I "accidentally" pressed the wrong link on an internet search, I would be led to a vital piece of information. In a few short weeks I had traced The Secret back through the centuries, and I had discovered the modern-day practitioners of the Secret.
