Can someone *please* just tell me what "the secret" in the book is? I don't want to read the book, and I'm not prepared to wait for the movie to come out.

In a nutshell the secret to a successful life is if you believe something will happen, it will. E.G. If you go into a car park and visualise a space and believe it's going to be available, lo and behold you will get a space. If you go in thinking it's rammed and too busy you won't get space. It's an absolute load of bollocks. I've been visualising winning the lottery for the past 10 years and am still yet to win...Positive people achieve things in life because they are generally pro-active people who make things happen - that's why they do well, not because they have some secret power to make things happen through dreams. Good luck to the author though, she's made a shedload of money from selling utter horseshit to millions of very very stupid people. Fair play.

I've watched the DVD - does that result in instant purging?

It's not just bollocks, it's hugely insulting bollocks, and I can prove it...
About 60 years ago millions of people all wanted exactly the same thing. They were jews, gays, gypsies and communists and you know what they wanted? They wanted to live. And they died. And they wanted to eat. And they starved. And they wanted to be free of those places where they were all focusing for every second of every day for YEARS to live, to eat, to escape and all that focus, all that concentration came to absolutely NOTHING.
So, what did they do wrong? Not concentrate hard enough? Take their eye off the ball? If the 6 million couldn't visualise life, do you really think idly thinking about a Mercedes is going to bring you one?
This idea makes me so angry. It's worse than 'utter horseshit'. Maybe if I focus hard enough on people putting this crap back on the shelves they might. What do you think?

Millions of schoolboys wanted to sleep with Kylie. Every night they..er..made a space in their bed. None of them suceeded. Ultimate proof (if proof is till needed) that this is indeed money-making 'horseshit' peddled to the lazy, the selfish, the greedy and the intellectually impoverished.

Oh, no; I've just sent out a negative thought into the universe. It's coming to get me. Feel strange negative vibration in room. Can't type anymore...Aaaaaaargh!!
