The Science of Getting Rich is a book written by the New Thought Movement writer Wallace D. Wattles. The book is still in print after almost 100 years.

Good moral messages, but not science

(2 stars)

I thought it would be an action plan for how to get rich. It offers instead a spiritual guide; positive thinking, affirmations, meditation, prayer, etc. none of what this book purports to be about is science. to my understanding, science is about observing the world and asking questions about the relationships between different phenomena. but almost from the very start the author asks you to take on faith everything that he lays out and to not ask any questions. sorry I just can't do that. if you are religious or spiritual there is a lot to be gained from this book, it reminds you that remaining optimistic, positive, loving yourself and offering gratitude to the universe (or God if you prefer), are more likely to give you what you want out of life, or need. I'm disappointed though that this book offers almost no practical advice on finances or entrepreneurial strategies. the book has a punchy title which, my inner cynic tells me, was designed to catch the eye and sell books and make the author rich.

This is a step by step scientific experiment

If it's done in a certain way, then this works. I've seen it work in many ways in my life and in the lives of my friends. I have been applying these principles for 2 decades. It will not fail. This is about experiencing the results in creative ways and being inspired by intuition. It's not just theory. Have these principles summarized and memorized so that we can teach others through our examples of how advancement unfolded and how to make dreams come true in a practical way. Observe your own life become enriched while doing our best to generously enrich people's lives. Teach by your example... Use words if necessary.

Rings true even today

(5 stars)

The mind and everything we think has direct implications in our life and what happens in it. I was very surprised to see how something written so long ago still rings true today. Our ability to be successful, or “get rich” is directly related to our vision, our thoughts, our gratitude and how hard we work in that direction. In a modern era where so many people expect, with no positive vision, drive or gratitude, the ideas written in this book are still relevant, and will be for many years to come. A great book to make you think and start doing something about improving your life.

self inspiring , teach yourself book

(4 stars)

it was a revelation to understand how someone who has so well processed mentally what you know and understand but cannot execute or implement what you already know. its a true guide to the path you are already walking but you just don't know it yet. genius is that it will never become irrelevant any era. read it a fifty years from now you will still be able to relate to it the same way you do now.

Essential book

(4 stars)

I've read a lot of self help books about money but for some reason none of them involved having faith. This book is well written and I agree on most, if not all, of the things mentioned in it. It was easy to understand and to reflect upon. I would definitely recommend it to my family and friends.

Simple truths

(5 stars)

This books speaks about simple truths that exists. Be grateful for everything you have and practice it everyday, be honest with yourself and think positively, it will come your way and so on. Sometimes you need to hear these simple truths to believe and start acting in certain way. Listen to it, so worth your time.
