Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Here the power of positive thinking is translated into language for today's teen. It is a spin off from the book and film The Secret by Rhonda Byrne who is quoted in italics throughout. "You not only create your life with your thoughts, but your thoughts add powerfully to the creation of the world." Visualizing what one wants helps to bring it into being. "See yourself as garbage and the flies will come." Positive thinking can be applied to money, relationships, health, and the world. The author gives exercises to provoke thought. The message of each section is reinforced with quotes from teens, celebrities, and great thinkers from around the world: "After seeing The Secret, I'm more determined to be the best that I can be, and better!!!!" Michael, age 17, Durban, South Africa. "I dream for a living." Stephen Spielberg—movie maker. "You must be the change you want to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi - spiritual leader. The book ends with a quote from Rhonda Byrne, "You are the master of the Universe. You are the heir to the kingdom. You are the perfection of Life. And now you know The Secret." White silhouettes of active teens against shades of blue and a splash of red introduce each chapter along with the title. Harrington may help teens find direction and meaning in life. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Harrington promises to reveal the most powerful law in the universe that teens can then use to "create the life of their dreams." He calls it the "law of attraction." He goes on to promote believing in oneself and following one's passions as a way to find fame and fortune. Thinking positive thoughts is all well and good, but when the author writes that optimistic thinking will clear up pimples or that avoiding news coverage about current events (because it will only attract bad thoughts) will keep you healthy and on the right track, it puts the credibility of this self-help guide in doubt. Then Harrington writes that whatever happens to you is a result of what you think about. "Victims of tragedy didn't ask for their fate (and they totally didn't deserve it). They probably didn't even know they were capable of attracting stuff. But still, there's an attraction. And that's because the law of attraction operates whether you know about it or not. People who don't know THE SECRET are attracting by default." This is cruel advice to give to an adolescent. If a 13-year-old who is being abused reads this, will he think that the abuse is his fault because he attracted it? What about a 17-year-old whose boyfriend hits her? Did she attract the violence? This is a philosophy of blaming the victims, placing the onus for bad things happening in their lives squarely on them.—Geri Diorio, The Ridgefield Library, CT
VOYA - Jennifer McConnel
The power of positive thinking is given a rather dubious makeover in this book, where readers are not only encouraged to think of the things they want but to act as if they are already in possession of their hearts' desires. Although the power of thought is undeniable to many, the method described here seems arrogant at best. The text implicitly tells teens that all they have to do to achieve anything in life is to really want it, think about it constantly, and act as if it has already been given to them. In fact, readers are cautioned against trying too hard or working toward a goal: "Relax, kick back, and feel fantastic." The questionable advice will likely deter thoughtful readers, and the cloying, falsified adolescent voice will turn off all teens. Harrington alternates between a desperate attempt at an authentic teen voice and a comforting, all-knowing narration to sooth the minds of those readers who find "all this technical stuff" far over their heads. Perhaps the worst moment in the text comes when Harrington implies that victims of natural disasters and tragedies have unintentionally brought their fates upon themselves. Because these people have "been conditioned to believe that you get what you're given in life," the implication is that they have somehow attracted tragedy in the same way that this book encourages readers to draw prosperity. Although this book does present some inspirational stories and creative suggestions, it will not appeal to teen readers, the precise audience for whom it was intended. Reviewer: Jennifer McConnel

Meet the Author

Como productor de la película El Secreto, Paul Harrington aprendió los principios directamente de Rhonda Byrne, autora de El Secreto. Paul no sólo transformó su propia vida, sino también logró leer miles y miles de cartas procedentes de personas alrededor del mundo que habían utilizado El Secreto para comenzar a vivir la vida de sus sueños.

Sin embargo, fue la propia hija adolescente de Paul quien lo inspiró a tomar este conocimiento y adaptarlo para una audiencia adolescente. Con El Secreto para Adolescentes, el sueño de Paul es que los adolescentes en todo el mundo comprendan el poder que tienen sobre sus propios destinos para lanzarse confiadamente al mundo ¡y crear una vida que no sea menos que una obra maestra!

    Although the title suggests it is for Teens, this book is for everybody old enough to understand the Secret

    Paul Harrington took the concept of The Secret by
    Rhonda Byrne and wrote it in everyday language for teenagers. In many ways I prefer Paul's presentation of understanding The Secret over that of Rhonda Byrne's because it is somewhat easier to grasp. I purchased the book for my daughter but as of yet have not given it to her and it will be interesting to see what she says because she has watched The Secret and enjoyed it very much.

    :(

    dont waste your money. I was so excited about this book when I saw it advertsied on the website, that when it did come out I purchased right away. Yeah! Dont waste your money. Buy Sean Covey's 7 Habits of highly effective teens instead.
    This book is stupid, worthless and pointless for that matter!
    Do yourself a favor and dont even bother.

    Gives Great Optimism

    I really enjoyed this book, and it partially changed my life. I really think that we can determine our own future, and this put it a way that I hadn't thought about. It really can change someone's life.


    One point that holds things back is something they think is common knowledge, but wasn't common knowledge for me. There is a way that we think that defines what we think; in order to take control of optimism, we need to also change how we think.

    Great for any age

    I purchased a book for two different sets of grandchildren. I read it first and it is as good as The Secret but maybe even easier for we older people to understand. I highly recommend it for any age and good to just have sitting on a coffee table to refer to periodically.

    Great Book

    My name is D'airah (DD) and I want to tell you about The Secret Teen Power. This book explains how you can use your thoughts to follow your goals. You can have anything you want like health, wealth and success. I learned that you cant doubt yourself. You have to always believe in yourself and think positive thoughts. Great book I recommend it to everyone of all ages.
