Nope turq, I heard it from one of Marci's best friends and co hostess during a 
teleclass. Neither one of them are associated with TM any more. And I own no 
chicken soup books!

    So you're trying to make the point that the world has terrible taste in 
non-fiction? That's not news. Me, I'll stick with "awful, mawkish, obvious, 
painful, unbearable, unenjoyable, and scarring" and "a noxious sludge of 
sentimental woo-woo."  :-)
Besides, a quick scan of this page 
http://www.abebooks.com/blog/index.php/2014/01/17/the-75-greatest-living-female-authors/
 reveals that Marci Shimoff's name does not appear on it anywhere. The list 
*does* comprise both fiction and non-fiction, but there are at least 7 female 
authors on the list who write non-fiction, none of them Marci Shimoff. 

I suspect you have done your usual thing and have chosen to believe "marketing 
fiction" created by Shimoff's publisher and accept it as if it were true. It 
isn't. Marci Shimoff doesn't even have her own Wikipedia page, something one 
might have expected if what you claim about her book sales were true. 

In other words, ONCE AGAIN you've chosen to believe a lie that makes you feel 
good about something/someone TM-related, rather than expend even the slightest 
effort to see whether the lie was true. 

In fact, *even on her OWN Web page*, Shimoff doesn't claim what you said. The 
copy reads, "...one of the bestselling female nonfiction authors of all time," 
so it appears that you made up this particular lie ALL BY YOURSELF. What do you 
have to say for yourself, Share?

    Jeez, turq, now you're blaming the TMO for chicken soup?! FYI, Jack 
Canfield and Rick Hanson never lived in FF, though Marci Shimoff did. Read it 
and weep: Marci Shimoff is the best selling, non fiction, woman author of all 
time. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. 
PS Making any progress on that thorn in your paw?

   . 
    Interesting article about a phenomenon that as I remember had its start in 
Fairfield. Descriptions of this Literary Pinnacle Of Newage Crap in the article 
like "awful, mawkish, obvious, painful, unbearable, unenjoyable, and scarring" 
and "a noxious sludge of sentimental woo-woo" just don't do its 
horriblenessitude justice. 

Someone I had known back in the TM movement once tried set me up on a "coffee 
date" with one of the Chicken Soup authors. It was horrific, almost the worst 
date in my life (for the record, the worst was with Barbara De Angelis)...I 
lasted less than five minutes before making some excuse and running away, and 
had to wash my ears out in the coffeeshop restroom before I felt human again.
