In May of 2007, Rhonda Byrne was recognized as one of the world’s most influential people in TIME magazine’s “The TIME 100: The People Who Shape Our World”, and shortly afterwards appeared in Forbes’ “The Celebrity 100” list.

In 2010, Rhonda continued her work with The Power, the second book in The Secret Book Series, which immediately became another New York Times bestseller. The Power is now available in 48 languages.  The third book in The Secret Book Series, The Magic, was released in 2012, and Hero, the fourth in The Secret Book Series, was released in 2013. Also released in 2013 was The Secret Daily Teachings in a hardcover book edition. Rhonda’s most recent book, How The Secret Changed My Life, features a compilation of real life stories from readers whose lives have been transformed by the message of The Secret.
