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."

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.

I am grateful for the LibriVox readers and the books they provide for me!

(5 stars)

Thank you very much, Dana for reading this book so nicely. Every time I listen to a LibriVox book, I am filled with gratitude to have access to these books while I accomplish other tasks in my life. I do intend to become a reader myself, and I’m making time and wealth for that right now!
