Anthony Sacramone has some fun with The Secret:
Astounded as I was by the phenomenal bestselling success of Rhonda Byrnes’ The Secret—gobsmacked by the sheer weight of its pages, the width of its margins, and the commodious depths of its solipsistic inanities—I wondered: How can I cash in on the gullibility of the average consumer of spiritual bromides and New Age gobbledigook?
It would be tough going. After all, how could I hope to compete with such Secret insights as:
“This is a feeling Universe. . . . Ask once, believe you have received, and all you have to do to receive is feel good” (page 53).
“You are the master of your life and the Universe is answering your every command” (page 146).
“You are God in a physical body. . . . You are all power. You are all intelligence” (page 164).
“You are a human transmission tower. . . The frequency you transmit reaches beyond cities. . . . It reverberates throughout the entire Universe” (page 11).
