I've recently gotten in touch with a long-lost relative. I'm overjoyed. Not so overjoyed about the fact that he's in chronic pain. One way that he's been dealing with this is by searching for meaning in the universe - y'know, getting all "cosmic" and whatnot.
He's mentioned several times that the book "The Secret" has helped him immensely and strongly urged me to read it.
I'm thrilled that it's helped, but I have no desire whatsoever to read it myself. Could someone please just tell me what this big "secret" is so that I can convincingly fake it?
[Please don't admonish me to just read the book. See, I've heard some bad things about it and I have poor impulse control - so if I do read it and it sucks, there's a big probability of a foot in mouth "So, did you read 'The Secret'?" "Yeah! And it sucked! I mean..." moment, which after not seeing this very important person to me in FIFTEEN YEARS, I do not want to do.]
