Overview

For certain if you are a thoughtful reader you would appreciate this book.

It is a book for our age, the age of the "Secret". The secret is out that the "Secret" is the scourge of our time.

As responsible adults we likely believe in the power and necessity of critical thinking in our personal lives.

To be advised that thought is a danger and wishful thinking is a value above it, makes me shudder. I personally know people who are well educated, honest, and ambitious who consider those who question their commitment to the tenets of the "Laws of Attraction"... etc. to be toxic.

Now if that is not dangerous to rational thought in an age of "The Secret", I don't know what is!

Read this book to arm yourself against the temptation not to think straight. It is a temptation, as, thinking clearly requires some thought.
