Product Description

About the Author

Wallace D. Wattles 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, successfully applied them to his life, and shared them with the world in his innovative 1910 book, "The Science of Getting Rich". He died one year later. Wattles s ideas have lived on to inspire future generations to greatness.

HASH(0x9e6a2dec) out of 5 stars Your Brain, The Perfect Instrument Sept. 22 2005
By Esmerelda Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wattles, in all his writings, is the master of simplicity in explaining that we are gods amongst gods, provided with everything we require in discovering our destiny.

"That which is in you impelling you forward is in the things and people you need, impelling them toward you."

"Nothing was ever in any man that is not in you; no man ever had more spiritual or mental power than you can attain, or did greater things than you can accomplish. You can become what you want to be"

First published in 1911, it is tinted with language of the day, but do not let that prevent you from discovering gold. It is one of those old "secret" books that have been fortunately reprinted. You need to read it at least twice before you appreciate what is transpiring. Behind the transparent words is an empire of knowledge.

HASH(0x9e6a403c) out of 5 stars Excellent. Jan. 28 2006
By Samuel Cocar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
How to be a Genius is one of several treatises on optimal thinking and living by author Wallace Wattles, who also wrote Health through New Thought and Fasting. How to be a Genius is brief but powerful. The book seems to have informed other luminaries like Napoleon Hill- Wallace's "Cosmic Intelligence" is parallel to Hill's "Infinite Intelligence." Anyway, the book deals with the concept of achieving greatness by creating the appropriate thought-forms and aligning your mind the mind of

G-d. Wattles presents some very novel paradigms with regard to how one should view the world. While the book is not Christian in an orthodox sense, it borrows from the Bible. Wattles most often quotes Jesus of Nazareth, then Abraham Lincoln (with some transcendentalism thrown in). While I don't agree with Wattles on every single point, this is a powerful book, and will prove a useful complement to a few other seminal performancy psychology books on your shelf.

This book is absolutely excellent! It is merely a metaphysical perspective on the human potential. I'd recommend anyone in college, one who is trying to do some soul searching, to read this.
