Today I’m reviewing Top Secret: the Truth Behind Today’s Top Mysticisms by Robert M. Price.
Another review can be found here.
As atheists, both Robert Price and I are skeptical and tend to question everything. Robert uses this book to question various mysticisms and popular culture bunks such as Deepak Chopra’s Transcendental Meditation, Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret, Joel Osteen and fake religion (an oxymoron, I know), Eckhart Tolle and more. Robert uses logic, reason and facts to debunk every mysticism, shows how they can be dangerous and shows how gullible people fall for this crap.
Price uses a simple, yet elegant writing style to damn these mysticisms.
I recommend this book for people who want to understand why these mysticisms are so popular (it’s because they’re promoted by Oprah and trashy talk shows, as Price points out).
