Ok--so I have not read the book. But I did see 30 minutes of the first version of the movie (in the summer of 06 (after one of my students strongly urged that I watch it). When I wasn’t laughing like a lunatic, I was screaming like a lunatic. The Horror! The Horror! I didn’t think I would ever hear about The Secret again, until a few months later, I read an article about its popularity. Before you know it, Oprah, and soon after world domination. I must say that hucksterism this cheap and inane will be always be with us, but I am still amazed. When something likes this becomes a bestseller you begin to wonder about the merits of censorship…

Lars-Christian Elvenes 30 minutes! I'm impressed. I had to stop it after 20 minutes, when I started to feel like my IQ was lower by the second.
