Reference Question of the Month: the Law of Attraction

Where are the books on the law of attraction?

We do have a couple of books that are specifically on the law of attraction, for instance The Soulmate Secret or The Answer.The law of attraction became very popular in 2006 with the movie, The Secret, and the book by the same name that was published the next year. But the idea of the law of attraction goes back thousands of years and is even in the Bible (Mark 11:24; "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.")! Most of the books on the law of attraction don't specifically mention those words in the title, so here is a list of those books you won't be able to find just by doing a search on "the law of attraction."

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This edition is "updated for the 21st century", but this book has been around since 1937. Hill never explains what his "secret" is, but many believe that he is really talking about the law of attraction.

Life's Missing Instruction Manual by Joe Vitalee
Bestselling author and marketing guru Joe Vitale offers insights and life lessons for achieving success. This title is available through our Overdrive service.

You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay, argues that everyone is responsible for their own experiences, tells how to lead a more creative and fulfilling life, and discusses work, health, success, and personal relationships

Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles. Another "oldie but goodie", Wattles offers a primer on "prosperity consciousness".

the law of attraction is about believing that you can get something by believing that you will get it
