Atria Books to publish Rhonda Byrne's new book - The Power

New York, NY - July 13, 2010 - Atria Books is thrilled to announce its publication of The Power, the new book by Rhonda Byrne, author of the worldwide phenomenon, The Secret. The Power will be released on August 17, 2010.  The announcement was made by Judith Curr, Executive Vice-President and Publisher of Atria Books and Washington Square Press.


"We are deeply honored to publish Rhonda's new book," said Curr. "The Power is the book Rhonda was inspired to write after answering thousands of letters from readers of The Secret, and reaching extraordinary new levels of insight. The knowledge contained in The Power can and will change lives instantly. And the profound revelations are amplified by the book's breathtaking illustrations - the book's beauty is truly astounding."


In The Secret, Rhonda Byrne revealed the law of attraction. Now with The Power, Rhonda Byrne continues her groundbreaking work, as she reveals the single greatest force in our universe. Rhonda believes that everyone is meant to have an amazing life. And in The Power, she shows how 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, all come from The Power. The Power is the handbook to the greatest power in the universe - The Power to have everything you want.


The Power will be published simultaneously as a Simon & Schuster Audiobook and by Simon & Schuster Canada, Simon & Schuster UK and Simon & Schuster Australia, with editions in other languages to follow. An Atria Espanol Spanish edition for US distribution is also planned by the end of this year.


Since Atria Books/Beyond Words released The Secret in November 2006, it has become a global bestseller, with 19 million copies in print, including 10 million copies in the U.S. and Canada, the UK and Australia. It has been translated into 46 languages. The Secret has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 164 weeks and the UK's Sunday Times bestseller list for over 100 weeks. Recently, The Secret was named by USA Today as one of the top 20 bestselling books of the past 15 years.


"The Secret is timeless - still wildly popular after three years," said Curr. "Rhonda speaks to people in a way that makes advanced concepts very easy to understand, allowing people to take easy steps to make profound life changes."
