The Onion on The Secret

Ah, the joys of humour – (that would be, “humor” for you sadly challenged Americun-speekin’ Yanks).

Thesecret Newagenonsense-1The Secret—the new self-help book and DVD that purports to channel ancient wisdom and claims that if you ask the universe for something, it will be delivered—has become a nationwide phenomenon. Here are some of the book’s tips:

  • You deserve whatever you want no matter how awful you are
  • Try not to use any critical-thinking skills or logic when pondering concept of The Secret
  • Capitalizing on basic human feelings such as greed can bring you vast wealth
  • Eat a hearty breakfast every day

Read it all @ the Onion.

And also, please read my earlier post on how Salon takes apart The Secret.
