Who Moved My Secret? satirizes every aspect of The Secret, including the historical manuscripts in which it was supposedly found and the famous people who used it throughout history (as well as hypothesizing about the other famous people who wished they'd known of it, but didn't and paid the price). It explains the Law of Attraction, which means that if you're gullible enough to believe in it, Rhonda Byrne and her ilk will be attracted to your credit card number. In addition to its comic riffs, Who Moved My Secret? is augmented by lists, charts, monologue "editorials" by Harry Kurtzman — the atheist insult comic, dialogue sketches and affirmations, and choice bits of spiritual wisdom from the great teachers (such as the Great Chicken who provides all that soup for your soul) in an entertaining mélange. It also provides hands-on instruction on how to use the information contained in the book, how to handle the newfound success that will result from using it, and who to sue if it doesn't work (HINT: Not the author).
