Overview

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles

Straightforward and easy to understand, The Science of Getting Rich asserts that all of us -- no matter what our circumstances -- have the ability to obtain enough wealth to live as we desire and to fulfill our purpose in life.

Written nearly a century ago and recently rediscovered by Rhonda Byrne, creator of The Secret, The Science of Getting Rich offers clear insight on creating prosperity and the happiness that ensues.

There exists a science of getting rich -- and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are also certain laws that govern the process of acquiring means, and once these laws are learned and followed, a person will prosper with mathematical certainty. This book carefully provides the explanation of this science and how these laws function.

Each one of us naturally wants to achieve his or her full potential -- this desire to realize our innate talents is inherent in human nature. There is nothing wrong in wanting to become wealthy; in fact, the longing for riches is really the desire for a fuller and more abundant life. The Science of Getting Rich can set you on your way toward reaching this goal.

About the Author

Wallace D. Wattles was born in the United States in 1860, shortly before the Civil War. Later in life, he began his tireless study of the religious beliefs and philosophies of the world. It was through this relentless examination of such philosophers as Descartes, Hegel, and Ralph Waldo Emerson that he developed his own principles, successfully applied them to his life, and shared them with the world in his innovative 1910 book, The Science of Getting Rich. He died one year later. Wattles’s ideas have lived on to inspire future generations to greatness.

Ruth L. Miller served as associate professor at San Jose State University and as Director of Curriculum and Evaluation for Rogue Community College. She was ordained in the New Thought tradition and became the pastor of the Lifeways Center in Portland, Oregon. She is currently a traveling preacher, serving New Thought and Unitarian-Universalist churches in Oregon, Washington, and California.

I appreciated the knowledge contained, although I knew most of what was written beforehand, the essentials contained definately served it purpose. If you plan to be successful in life (financially), this book can get you there if you simply just apply the simplified instructions as enlisted, most are common sense so nothing to intellectual here.

I have been a huge Think and Grow Rich fan for more than twenty years but was blown away by Wattles' Science of Getting Rich. I highly recommend it and feel it has expanded the concept that 'we become what we think about'. It is however driving me crazy that I recognize the narrators voice but can't place him. Can anyone help?

Was a little abstract , but drives the point home and gives you a plan somewhat like think & grow rich -

It was a very good book, but you need to recognize that it was written 100 years ago and remember the time period it was written about. There were some mistakes in the beginning, but later in the book I can see mistakes were corrected.

Period. Every three words. I can barely. Even read. It. No financial advice. To be found. If you read the book, you'd understand the above statement...but still be confused financially.

A very good version of the classic book, simple photographs in a few areas enhance the text, and the unabridged text is true to what the author intended. Great work from all the rest.
