RiaW #31: The Secret Reviewed


The guys need all the help they can get to get through the most ridiculous self-help book ever created. Highlights:

  • We define the word “flyjaculate.”
  • We discover that the universe is just a mentally disabled genie.
  • The triumphant return of our insane beliefs correspondent, Stephen.
  • An interview about sex and death with famed comedian Carla Zilbersmith.
  • The Secret talks dirty to you.

    Man, you are not kidding. The Secret is a shite-pile.

  2. Br. Bill says:

    Maybe for your next episode, you can continue the theme by reviewing The Celestine Prophecy. To paraphrase “2001”:My god, it’s full of crap.

  3. Terri says:

    I am inspired by this book to persue a dream of mine. After all, if this load of crap can get published, then maybe any truckload of stupidity I can come up with can get published too.

  4. The Bookworm says:

    Speaking of prophecies, this book can be useful if you mention Self-fulfilling prophecy. You think it, you act it, it’s done. But this rarely happens.

  5. Alex Falcone says:

    Thanks to alert listener “Megan” for pointing out that we never actually said “We’re reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne” in our opening. We regret the error.

  7. Graeme McRae says:

    Thanks, so much, Alex, for tweeting me the explanation of the meat- and clothing-related references in your introduction to every show. Your explanation was worth its weight in gold!
