I have a Secret: I hate Rhonda Byrne


Ask. Believe. Receive.

That's all there is to getting what you want in life. According to Rhonda Byrne, author of "The Secret," if you really want something and believe it will come to you, then it will come to you.

This isn't just another positive thinking self-help book. This is an insidious pile of bullshit which claims that, according to the scientific "law of attraction," someone is actually able to influence the universe around them with their thoughts. Want to get rid of that pesky cancer? Don't bother with chemotherapy -- just visualize your body as cancer-free. No fuss, no muss.

Here's the best part: There's no need to come to come to the gym any more! If you want to get thin, just don't look at fat people. Food doesn't make you fat -- the thought of food making you fat makes you fat. I wish I was joking, but that's actually her advice.

PLEASE don't listen to this crap. There is no "law of attraction" in physics. Yes, masses attract each other through gravitational force and charges of opposite sign attract each other through coulomb force, but that's where it stops. There is no natural law that will attract a diamond necklace to your neck, no matter how badly you want it to happen!

You want advice on life? Here it is: steer clear of this book, and don't give this woman a single penny of your money.
