If you are seeking better health and ways to stay well…This book is for you! Wallace D. Wattles was an American author and a pioneer success new thought movement writer. His most famous work and first book is a book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explains how to get rich. Additionally, In the Science of Getting Well, Wattles suggests the reader to think and ACT in a Certain Way. As with his first book, Wattles explains in simple concepts the keys to Getting Well. With faith and discipline, Wattles suggests you can stay well. Says Wattles “for those who want health, and who want a practical guide and handbook, not a philosophical treatise. It is an instructor in the use of the universal Principle of Life, and my effort has been to explain the way in so plain and simple a fashion that the reader, though he may have given no previous study to New Thought or metaphysics, may readily follow it to perfect health”. (Summary by Jill Preston, Wikipedia and book Preface “Science of Getting Well”) (2 hr 42 min)

In a united states country with self inflicted uneducated children & adults in every region, these free audio books must be openly available for the general public who enjoy teaching ourselves instead of relying on insufficient public education. Thank you Librivox... you are a hero among heros...

Never turn anything down until you try it for yourself.

Great source of information. Even health specialist need to read/listen to this book!

nice book, some things are still valid some are outdated

(4 stars)

Some things are true like breakfast is not crucial for being healthy, a from physiological perspective, there’s nothing special about eating early in the morninga and triggering weight loss. However someone cannot heal everything with good thoughts, nevertheless this book really helps to maintain a healthy and positive attitude which is of high value.

Very interesting read, some aspects are outdated and I find to be close minded but there is still much wisdom here, read very clearly, thank you

Outdated

(2.5 stars)

A good listen, and definitely a lot of Truth in here, but we need not reject science and common medical practice to be healthy. All of wattles books are excellent, but this one left a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth. I still recommend it.

Highly recommended

(5 stars)

Very simple and logical concepts. It take some discipline to apply at first, but eventually comes naturally. I guess that's why he calls it the natural way.

The book makes sense. It expounds on Biblical passages. things I already believed but some not completely understood.
