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."

(2 stars)

This is NOT science. The author does not cite any scientific research to back his claims and asks you to have unconditional faith in them. He even goes so far as to say that you shouldn’t even expose yourselves to ideas that contradict his views! On a positive note, the book is quite entertaining if you don’t take it too seriously. It is a good example of new thought beliefs for those who are curious about that. The narrator did a great job. Some of the ideas contained inside really are interesting, and might provide you with insight and out of the box thinking. Also, one has to consider that the author died the next year after publishing this book. If his ideas about the power of the mind were right, they were not very effective in preventing his illness and death! Yet, he very authoritatively says in the book that illnesses and poverty are caused by wrong thinking...

Really enjoyed this book

(4.5 stars)

I'm really enjoying this book, the naming conventions, the short examples that give life to the chapters. I also enjoy the sense of maturity in which it is written.

The science of getting rich will not only bless you with many pathways to physical riches throughout your life, but it will also enrich you in spiritual riches which is the elixir of the soul. If applied over a short span of your life, these principles will show you a life beyond your wildest imagination. The very spirit that is eternal within us will begin to dance like no other, you’ll make love like queens and kings, everyone will turn to you for advice in life and you’ll be very well off in most areas of your life. If you read this book for 15 mins per day for 1 year straight without missing a day, you’ll be leaps and bounds beyond where human minds would only dream to see. The science of getting rich is about so much more than physical money in our accounts, it’s also about perspective and much more. For those of you who are struggling with laziness, or just outright getting stuck in life , this book is for you If you’re willing to put in a mustard seed of effort! If you’re going through an issue then call time magazine and see if they could use your services. Put the book away, and read it after life’s pain lashes you’re backside for not obeying the pathways they’ve built which is a very threat to their existence. When you’re hurting enough and when you’re reachable & teachable enough come back to the book and start your journey. You’re in for the ride of your life. Enjoy either path my friends. The men and women who read this are in for a special treat. I wish you Well my friends

thought provoking

I love this way of thinking. Read the book many years ago... listened to the book on here a few years ago & now, again listening to it. I find it very enjoyable & positive. I also find the reader to be very enjoyable to listen to...she has wonderful pronunciation, a lovely accent & she seems into the text she is reading.

The Cult of Getting Rich

(1 stars)

Ch 4 and after goes from odd too off the deep end. Do not listen to anyone that contradicts me! Take what I say without evidence! Corrupt politicians can't be &/or stay in power because God won't allow it! Thinking about poverty, disease, and sin is what causes it! This is "SCIENCE" Cult of Delusion

Very Enlightening

(5 stars)

Incredibly modern for have been written over 100 years ago. A quick listen, easily digested, I am going to implement his message today. I would recommend it to anyone. It's amazing how many modern self-help books are derivative of this book, if not cut and paste. Read and start thinking that "certain way".
