Executive summary: The Secret
At the instigation of her daughter, Rhonda read The Science of Getting Rich (1911) by Wallace D. Wattles, author of other self-help books as The Science of Being Great and The Science of Being Well. She also found Thought Vibration, or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World (1906) by William Walker Atkinson. The books inspired her to spend the next year creating a lightweight philosophy around this "law of attraction", in which good thoughts yield good things, and bad thoughts bring misadventure. While this may neither be a lasting nor important contribution to humanity, it and The Secret (2006) has netted the author $50M.
