potentially dangerous nonsense

by Corgi on Mar 10, 2009

I was invited to join a group following this book. A group like that - mutual support for pursuing goals - has some real value. This book does not. I'm a big believer in the power of the mind, but didn't find in Wishcraft the emotional, spiritual or practical insight to help harness that power. I tried to buy into Sher's credibility but lost it entirely with the story of a 26-year-old secretary's wish for fame. First Sher dismissed embarrassment over wanting fame for fame's sake, with [in italics to evoke stone-tablet-law emphasis] "What you want is what you need - and you must have it." She followed this absurd rule with an effort to find out what kind of fame would do: "Well, then how about going over Niagara Falls in a barrel? Another decisive 'No'." This was fortunate, since it relieved her of the duty to help her client become famous by dying senselessly, following the hair-brained commandment. They zeroed in on fame for performance. Sher felt "it would speed things along if she picked a field where she didn't have to start from scratch" [insert your own exclamation or ironic remark, your choice]. Did she have any skills in any of the fields they'd identified? She'd done some photography, "So photography it was." Then they figured out that celebrity photography could be the short-cut to fame...oh, I can't go on, I've got stuff to do if I'm going to be a tycoon anytime this year (namely, write one of these dream-it-be-it self-help books. We know Sher was able to make at least one mediocrity's dreams come true.) I so hate that I paid retail for this book.
