The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles

TheScienceofGettingRich

Submitted by Juan P. Rodriguez

My take on the book

I have just finished listening to this audiobook about two weeks ago. It is a very short and easy to listen audiobook that´s serves as a helpful guide to remind you that:

  1. The human ability has no limits
  2. The abundance of resources in the universe is limitless
  3. In your desire and ability lies your personal success

The book is good in my personal opinion. Some things are hard to wrap your head around if you are a little sceptic to the notion that there is a law of attraction. Never the less, the book is a good reminder for the reader that the only limits we face as human being rely solely on the ones imposed by ourselves. The content of the book focuses mainly in the mindset we need to have in order to produce all the wealth we desire.

So, yes, I liked it. I would rate it at 4 stars out of 5

Publisher´s Summary

Originally published in 1910, this audiobook takes the mystery out of the accumulation of wealth and breaks it down into a scientific formula.

Here is an excerpt from the Preface of the audiobook:

This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.

It is expected that the listener will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible…

…In writing this audiobook I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down herein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment: It works…and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, listen to this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.
