One of the best book i have ever read. Every person on this planet should read this book atleast once in their life. It will definitely change your perspectives towards the life. This book will help you to look at the life through different angles and attaining/becoming whatever you want in your life.

This book is extremely repetitive & after reading the first three chapters I had a clear understanding on what this book is about. Love the message but feel this book could’ve been wrapped up in one sentence.

Amazing book. I recommend!!
Changed a lot of my perspectives, and I feel in control of myself. Controlling what I think about and how I think about things is something that makes me feel great!

Thankfulness works in different ways for different people. For the one who was born with very good health it may prolong their life (may be even by seven years). while who are born with a genetic diseases - as some families have married for centuries close relatives - may have (not all) - then the baby born with a brain tumor or enzyme deficiency - still the parents can thank for the experience which will make them kinder and gentler people towards others.
It is wise to refrain projecting ones own personal experiences and psychological view points into any book of wisdom. We say - in my family - "Alhamdulillah Kulla Haga" - daily. means - Thank you God no matter what.
Otherwise how can the Muslims survive this huge carnage in this century? that is how we survive - By The Grace of God's Mercy to be humble and hope for a better life in the Afterlife. Thank you for reading.

The 13th century philosopher Meister Eckhart said in one sentence what Ms. Byrne takes a whole book to say, "If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough." Of course, he didn't promise rewards for being thankful as Ms. Byrne does, nor did he suggest any bad things in your life were caused by your lack of gratitude.
Ms. Byrne started to lose me when she directed readers to find a Magic Rock, hold it in their hands before going to sleep, say thank you for the best thing that happened to you that day, and then put the Magic Rock beside your bed.
Ms. Byrne then totally lost me with her assertion that "the degree you're not grateful is the exact degree that your health will decrease". Who knew that the cure for all our physical ailments was simply being grateful.
She refers to research studies to justify the claims she makes; for example, "Studies have also revealed that people who practise gratitude heal faster, and are likely to live seven years longer!" However, she does not cite the specific studies that prove these claims.
I do believe a positive and thankful attitude impacts your life; I just find Ms. Byrne's concept of "magic" rather distasteful.

This book definitely opens your eyes/mind to being thankful and grateful for what is around you.

This book begins where "The Secret" left off. It's just as simple yet powerful. The author indicates that being grateful for what we have will help what we seek flow towards us. She explains her credo in a very believable fashion. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying out her suggestions. I for one am going to.
