The Secret

By the Book hosts Jolenta and Kristen dive into their first self-help book - the mega-bestseller The Secret. They follow it to the letter for two weeks. Listen as Kristen tries to manifest thoughts into things and Jolenta explores whether the Law of Attraction is as real as the Law of Gravity. Along the way, you can eavesdrop on the stranger moments of their social experiment, and learn whether either Jolenta or Kristen buys into the philosophy of The Secret at the end of two weeks.
