Would you like to be rich? Yes? Well, who wouldn't.

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. According to USA Today, the text is "divided into 17 short, straight-to-the-point chapters that explain how to overcome mental barriers, and how creation, not competition, is the hidden key to wealth attraction."

It is an accurate title that explains how one may attain riches.

(5 stars)

There is lots of repetition of important points. This is a worthwhile book for people interested in becoming rich without negatively affecting others. This should be the goal of every business. My only small negative on the book is that the foreign reader can sometimes be difficult to understand.

Listen to it, be open-minded, I'm not devote bit I will try

(5 stars)

I really prefer the concept that all of mankind can be financially rich without taking from others my own path was along these lines to begin with. To believe that their is always more of something even if we cant see it is so true. If you need to see it it defeats the purpose but look at the stars what if we as in mankind no longer built weapons of war(competition) and instead built weapons of exploration and automation. A robot whos greatest desire is to fullfill its duties to the best of its abilities (this does not include self aware/self improving i.e. not all humans either lol) to do the meanial...its not wrong to create jobs so that one can perpuatuate their own but it is wrong to take from them who know not how to become more nor wish not. We will only obtain ourselves when we all have moved beyond competition(the act of taking from others) into creation(the act of forging more intangible into tangible). We see it all around. This is the age folks. Hop on. Lets move forward. Create!

Very Actionable

(5 stars)

I love this book. If you listen to it with rapt attention you will understand how to apply the Efficient Action which will make you become an advancing man. This is the path way or science of becoming rich

Should be called the faith of getting rich

(1.5 stars)

In no way does the author lay out scientific evidence for any method for getting rich. Literally, the author spends more time explaining to you that it's possible to get rich and that this is what God wants than he does providing scientific evidence for a proven method of sorts. Not to mention, the author tells the reader that they should simply accept what he's saying on faith and should read other books in order to get any kind of philosophical foundation on the matter... this should not be understated.

(4.5 stars)

The material in this book is phenomenal and the reader is pleasant to listen to. The principles are straightforward, succinct and easy to understand. But, I have to put in the work, be creative and have gratitude, with laser focus on what I desire. Simple principles! Easier read than done. Bottom line... Put the work in!

A must listen

(5 stars)

I can see why they still print this book today. All the advise you need is here if you are willing to listen. Listen to it, and then listen to it again. Repeat as necessary

(5 stars)

The principles in this book stood the test of time. Where is falls short is the absence of self discovery. You need to know yourself first and discover your talents before any of these principles will have any success in your life. I've enjoyed listening to this audio book, thank you.

Just listen to the summary

(2 stars)

The 3 minute summary of the book is all there is to this book. You might think that there's some substance in the rest of the book, but there really isn't. Save yourself the trouble and time spent listening to this entire book, and just listen to the last chapter.
