The Science of Getting Rich
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."

The Science of Getting Rich
This book basically teaches about the law of attraction. A man is what he thinks. Thoughts become things. You attract everything you have into your life. You can attract exactly what you want (besides and without the control of others) by asking for it, visualizing it, acting as if you already have it, and being completely grateful for all that you already have and will come to have. The world is abundant and things should not be gained by competition. it is important to have unwavering faith that what you are attracting is on it's way to you. The book and movie "The Secret' explains the concept of Law of attraction clearly and with real life examples. This is a good book, but the concept is easier understood by watching or reading "The Secret". Another point is that this book is written from a Christian standpoint and belief. "The Secret" states that the law of attraction will work for anyone of any faith. Food for thought.
Best book ever
I have and will continue to listen to this regularly because the ideas in it are so simple, complete, and true that I wish to listen to it until all the ideas within it have been formed and integrated completely in to the habits of my life.
the technique is fairly simple, the whole book is repetitive, but, the main takeaway points are good, and often stolen from in most every self help or get rich quick book written since this book was published. So there must be something to it!
Really says what it means
I listen to this book atleast 4x a week. It really keeps me in the mindset and focus on get rich. I recommend to all to atleast listen once a week to stay focused until getting rich.
It is the science of getting rich, not a theory of getting rich. Although some points are the same as LOA, it is not. You are not what you think as some have mentioned in their reviews. You must make use of things so just thinking is not enough. It works if you put in the effort to see all the possibilities and opportunities and make use of them. Thoughts are not enough. Great book and the voice is perfect.
The conviction of the author to the topic of the book is palpable. The concept in general is interesting; the difficulty for me was where the explanation of some parts of the concept is made through the prism of biblical understanding or perceptions of God. And that for people of different faiths or no religion at all may be the obstacle to understanding the book.
I haven't tried the techniques, but I find the concepts very interesting. I find a few points in it that I don't think I can fully believe, but the main premise makes me look at so much in a new way. The reader's voice is pleasant, but I do wish she knew how to properly pronounce "competitive." all in all, I plan to widely share this book and recording.
To take a intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of structure and behavior of the physical and natural world of getting rich through observation is a sure win. Back to the basics, what's right is right.
