Have you read this sceptic review of The Secret?

Scroll down a little and you'll find the post "The Secret Behind The Secret" by Ingrid Hansen Smythe.
What do you think? I took the time to read the whole thing, and must admit that I got a 'deja vu' from how I used to see reality before.
Personally I still believe in it (I've had some amazing experiences lately supporting it), but I don't think there's anything wrong with a little discussion.

I've elsewhere expressed an intent to deliberately avoid skeptical arguments/articles. Still, I'd like to add that after a brief honeymoon with "The Secret" I was left hungering for much more. In retrospect it was useful to me only as a very simplified primer/intro to the subject.

This wasn't one of the worst critiques on The Secret that I've seen. She lists her sources and mentions many things that are stated that can easily be percieved as contradictory (though I have only seen the movie once).
But she does commit some logical fallacies, and some of her arguments could be more thougth out. Also note her frequent appeal to emotion, which epitome is: "Can we really feel comfortable ever saying that people attract fatal accidents, illness, trauma, and death?"
Although she used it too, much of what is written in opposition to The Secret is just simple-minded satire, basically leaning on the controversy of the LoA.
So that's my critique
