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."

excellent book, was searching for something but did not know what. did not expect it will be like this, inspired me to be grateful and have a clear vision of what i want and how to keep a positive mind. hope more readers will get the opportunity to read/hear it. thank you for the audio version as i have trouble reading with focus.

waste of time

wishfull thinking, pray and have faith, says the book is most to the point and scientific book yet tells everything in a very round about way and when you understand what it says you will be saying "what is he talking about". Science of getting rich; pray, have faith, are you serious?

(5 stars)

Amazing Book, nice tone of the book Reader.

Great practical listen!

(5 stars)

Pretty well read, inasmuch as a book this good is actually affected by the reading quality! Mr. Wattles gives really helpful tips for how to get wealthy, and stay wealthy. While you might say "well, gee, what difference will this even make in my life," don't doubt the power of this wonderful piece of practical-literature gold! Some of you may object to the spiritual side of this, but hey, what could possibly be made worse by praying for money? At the worst, literally nothing changes. Don't expect to become an instant millionaire after listening to this, but expect a measurable decrease in spent money, while still maintaining practically the same lifestyle!

WOW. Read this and have a positive impact on the world

(5 stars)

A precursor to such great books as "The power of positive thinking" and "The Secret". I don't understand those "Crazy" 1 star reviews, I just saved $600 not buying those Tony Robbins seminar tickets. Heck even Suze Orman tells us that visualization of our financial goals is the first step to achieving them. This book is about how a positive mindset can effect you and the world around you. The author stresses a balance in life, not just a monetary gain.

Worth Listening To 👍

I was hesitant to listen at first because I'm not so much a fan of books about getting rich. But i was actually hooked because a lot of the points presented made sense to me. I listened to the whole audiobook within the day and I felt like I wanted to hear more.
