Written nearly a century ago and recently rediscovered by Rhonda Byrne, creator of The Secret

Becoming rich is not a matter of environment or talents. Money and property come to us as a result of doing things in a certain way. This is a natural law -- the Law of Attraction -- that specific actions always produce like effects. As a result, anyone who learns to do things in a certain way will ultimately become prosperous.

There exists a science of getting rich -- and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic and The Science of Getting Rich explains obtaining wealth in a practical, mathematical, manner. Wallace D. Wattles treats gaining riches as a simple equation, and if his simple, rational steps are done in a "certain way," the result will always equal wealth.

Updated for the twenty-first century, this exclusive revised edition of The Science of Getting Rich presents a modern version of the lessons taught in the original. Free of complicated theories and wordy philosophies, it is told in a clear-cut, easy-to-understand manner that all can comprehend and apply to theirlives. It requires only that you listen, internalize the words, and keep your thoughts on your desires. You will then obtain the wealth that is awaiting everyone. Download and start listening now!

    " The book just did not get my attention, the voice on it put me to sleep and the content he read was like repeated over and over and pointless. I love all the other books I have but would like to refund this one if at all possible. Very unsatisfied. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Musselman | 2/18/2014

    " Mindset changing book that explains how and why we can and should live a full life mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially. Being rich is not just having money. A MUST READ! I am actually re-reading it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francesca | 2/15/2014

    " I have read this a few times and each time I learn something new. This book is timeless! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 2/13/2014

    " I also came to this book via The Secret. The title is very misleading. It is NOT a "get rich quick" guide. It's a book about changing your thought patterns and attitudes about how you approach life. Concepts are echoes of quantum physics, and it's very enlightening if you can get past the turn-of-the-century prose style. Best part: the book is free, thanks to public domain law. At last a book worth more than the paper it's printed on! As other reviewers have said, Wattles was a visionary and ahead of his time. Read it and stop whining! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Olson | 2/8/2014

    " Written 100 years ago, the straight forward, "pray, move your feet, and mind your mind" advice in this solid, basic primer on living a life rich in all good things still packs a punch. It's one of the most accessible books on the spiritual principles behind prosperity, even after all this time, because it offers idea in bite-sized, easily digested chunks, effectively uses repetition to drive ideas home (but does so without becoming boringly repetitive), gives examples for practical application, and is very very clear on what it's all really about, and for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wyn | 2/1/2014

    " Great book if you don't get stuck on every line you may disagree with or can't get beyond today's popular notion that achieving wealth is is immoral ......which I know is very hard for some. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny Bo'itanni | 1/28/2014

    " Splendid read. I have the audiobook aswell. I would suggest that you get the audiobook, it is more repetitive but you understand and retain everything much more. You wouldn't know that right away though. Lay down and listen the first time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige Cone | 1/22/2014

    " I am so getting rich.. you just wait. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Williams | 1/20/2014

    " This is an amazing book. The title is a bit misleading in that most people might think it is a get-rich quick scheme. It is in fact a book on ethics, vision, and having the drive to succeed in life. You should not be ashamed that you want riches and success. But you must start with a vision of what you want, who you want to be, and the life you want to live. Once you start there, you must believe that this vision will happen, and the work ethic to make each day a success. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pemmwa Thee | 1/10/2014

    " Well thus book like all other takes your mind to a place, a place of hope. 1456 pages of good thoughts, only wish it was longer. You like a good movie and once you get in to it, bam it goes off, yeah thus book was like that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cristobal | 11/11/2013

    " This is a book in the tradition of "As a man thinketh", a book with a simple idea that can change your life. It is a book that requires reading more than once because it is deceivingly simple yet you need to think it over to really get a grasp of what it is about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caleb | 11/7/2013

    " An old manuscript with wisdom for modern living. Gr8 read for all. "

    " I've read this book at least 50 times. While I don't agree with the anti-charity stance, the rest is superb. Eat the meat, spit out the bones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonya Wanvig | 9/12/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nura Yusof | 9/1/2013

    " A good book although not as good as Think & Grow Rich. Wattles is more New Age-y, I would think. But it is incredible that such a book was written so many years ago and still remains a fresh primer to financial success. A worthy read. "

About the Author
Author Wallace D. Wattles

Wallace D. Wattles (1860–1911) was born in the United States in 1860, shortly before the Civil War. Later in life, he began his tireless study of the religious beliefs and philosophies of the world. It was through this relentless examination of such philosophers as Descartes, Hegel, and Ralph Waldo Emerson that he developed his own principles and successfully applied them to his life before he shared them with the world in his innovative 1910 book, The Science of Getting Rich. He died one year later. Wattles ideas have lived on to inspire future generations to greatness.
