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 Sterne)

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 Sterne)

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!

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.

Forget everything you think you know and then read this book

(5 Sterne)

Its very important for a reader to have complete faith in author and just do what he says. Forget everything you know till now about who to live life and then read this. As a nuisance, as child being taught about Newton's laws. He doesn't questions if Newton was right or wrong he just believes and that's what you and me should do after listening to this.

Bizarre mixture of distorted social theories n motivationa speec

(2 Sterne)

Wattles shows here a pretty unsuccessful admixture of late capitalism advocacy and Christian socialism. All is one and one is all - but god wants you (and not your employees of course) to be rich. Put some use value on your workers - but never forget to exploit the labor, because you deserve to pay them a tiny fraction of what you earn. According to this book, getting rich has nothing to do with circumstances, luck, occasion, educational and cultural background - exactly as modern political science shows. It is merely a lack of will power. No matter how unscientific, this book presents one of the first coaching and self-help editions. It is amazing how similar modern-day audiobooks pertain to the exact same narrative. 2 stars for Wattles having predicted that airlines will grow to a huge business, about 3 years before the world's first airlines was established!

Should be called the faith of getting rich

(1,5 Sterne)

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.

Must for the people who wish to work with unconventional ways

(5 Sterne)

Content of the book- There were alot of gems hidden in this book, the best thing i got to know or realise was that the author always emphasises on being creative in finding the way the universe works rather than using what has been already done before. Time spent listening to this book was worthwhile. Quality of recording- The recording was clear

Just listen to the summary

(2 Sterne)

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.
