Rhonda Byrne to follow The Secret with The Power
14th July 2010
Australian author Rhonda Byrne has announced plans for a follow-up to her best-selling self-help book, The Secret.
In her new work, The Power, Byrne explores the theme of positive thinking espoused in her earlier offering, promising to reveal the way to happiness and success.
Simon & Schuster UK will release the new book on August 17th, with the publisher claiming The Power can provide 'perfect health, incredible relationships, a career you love, a life filled with happiness and the money you need to be, do and have everything you want'.
Byrne became a household name with The Secret, which was championed by influential US talk-show host Oprah Winfrey and sold more than 16 million copies in over 40 languages.
The book was later developed into a film by the same name, released in 2006, which saw Rhonda Byrne act as executive producer.
Byrne said the inspiration for The Secret came from reading The Science of Getting Rich, a book written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910.
