Simon & Schuster places biggest reorder in history for 'The Secret'

Mar 02 2007

Simon & Schuster has placed the biggest reorder in its history for Rhonda Byrne's runaway hit, The Secret, going back to press for two million more copies. The book and movie got a boost from Oprah Winfrey who dedicated two episodes of her talk show to it in early February. The new printing will bring total copies in print to 3.75 million. The link below goes to the "The Secret" blog. What is "The Secret"? According to Byrne's blog it is "The power of positive thinking .... Like a magnet the thoughts and images held in one's mind determine what is attracted to them and, ultimately, the quality of life they live. Go anxiously through the day with a negative loop of thoughts in your mind, anticipating bad things will happen, and they will. Approach that same day with positive thoughts, anticipating good things, and they'll be drawn to you."
