Product Description

Review

"Perhaps the most important thing that separates Wattles' success strategy from many other systems is his emphasis on spiritual philosophy rather than self interest." (Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, March 2009)

". . . Wattles identified financial success as the critical element, and first priority, in creating an environment in which one could grow in wealth, wisdom, and happiness. . . . the foundation of today's widespread success and prosperity movements." (Joint Forces Journal, July 2009)

“Wattles offers techniques for getting in tune with one’s deeper self and thus creating a channel of communication between oneself and universal energy. His is a gentle philosophy that excludes competition, cheating, and lording it over one’s fellows when one has made it, and encourages cooperation.” (Publisher’s Weekly)

"If you watched The Secret and wondered what the little book was that changed author Rhonda Byrne's life, this is it. Originally published in 1910, its time has come." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide magazine, Sep/Oct 2007)

From the Inside Flap

Finally the original version of Wallace D. Wattles’ all-time classic, which has shown generations of readers the way to riches, is available again for YOU to rediscover. The principles put forth by the author as far back as the year 1910 are as valuable today as they were then. The foundations of a science never change.

Learn from this astonishing book how to:

Increase Your Life
Make Riches Come to You
Use Your Will
Apply the Law of Gratitude
Think and Act in the Certain Way
Get into the Right Business

The Science of Getting Rich or Financial Success Through Creative Thought is a clear-cut, practical guide not only to acquiring riches, but also to advancing personal growth. With its timeless principles, it is the forerunner of every other personal finance and self-help book.

Claim your right to be rich and live your life to the fullest potential! --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The bible. It will change your outlook on life. Specifically I came to understand the connection between my mind and the material universe in a way that has actually changed the way I behave on a day-to-day basis.

Dr. Powell has butchered this classic to the point that this copy is not useable. Instead of the clear, simple prose W.D. Wattles wrote, you are left with the mindless drivel that Dr. Powell uses as examples to illustrate Wattles' points. Wattles expressly left out examples, and it was very effective. If you want to read what Wattles wrote, your only choice at this time is to find it elsewhere on the net, as the original version is no longer in print. There are a number of versions of this book floating around, but this one has the least in common with the original.

Although there are sections of this book that I found a little tiresome, it does still contain some useful information and it is worth the read. Personally, I found his other book, "The Science of Being Great" far better overall.

I began reading this book late spring of 2000. I've read the entire book ~ five times and a few of the chapters several times over and over. I am still re-reading it, because I have set out to put it to the test. My application of this book has been imperfect, but I keep striving. As a result, even with my imperfect application, I went from a position at work that I disliked severely, to a position with a 20% increase in just a few months. The new position came to me in a wonderful and unexpected way.
The frosting on the cake is that all the other areas of my life also improved: serenity, strength of character, stronger faith, more love and compassion to my peers, creative thinking, etc. I began my approach to the methods within "The Science ..." with the mind set, "Okay, I'll put it to the test and see for myself if 'Thinking and Acting in a Certain Way' will produce my desired results like Wattles says." So far it already has been a wonderful journey. It is by far the easiest book to read and re-read and APPLY. Keep in mind that not everybody starts this type of book from the same place in life or mindset. For best results: Keep an open mind, re-read it several times, use it as a tool to re-condition your thoughts, demand it delivers what it promises, and challange it by serious application. Dare to challenge yourself. Put it to the test!

If you would like to read Wallace Wattles' book I would strongly recommend you read *his* words, not Judy's.

No filler, straight to the point. A classic! I've read it once and am re-reading it to let the principles soak in via osmosis. One important point though - implement the principles! and don't just read for entertainment!

By Inkhorn HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 16 2009
Format: Paperback
If you are going to buy Wallace Wattles, you may as well get the three books in one anthology. It is only slightly more.

It (SGR)is an easy read, and it's highly useful. You can get rich by acting in a certain way, and having certain beliefs. I believe this already. The one concept that was new to to me the importance of gratitude, which activates the higher vibrations of your mind, and assists mightily in manifesting what you desire.

Currently, I am reading the science of being great. It is a very simple straightforward book that anyone can follow.

Is this the foremost book on Law of Attraction? No. Yet it is still worth a read, and highly recommended. For other recommendations, check my other recent reviews.

Format: Paperback
If someday somebody creates a "Hall of Fame" for self-help success books, this one will definitely be in there. I've read this book at least a half dozen times since I bought it a year ago. What makes it so appealing is that it's short, to the point, and very readable.
You can probably read this book in a good two hours. It takes me longer because I stop periodically to absorb the message. The tone of the book reminds me of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill.
This book was originally written almost a hundred years ago. It is focused on the acquisition of money, period. It's not about raising your self esteem, setting goals and leading a happy life. It's just plain money making. I like a bold author who cuts to the chase. I particularly like his assertion that we have "a right to be rich." No, it's not about greed and selfishness. It's not about trampling over other people.
The only downside to this book is that it won't appeal to some people because it comes across as "psycho babble" in many ways. There really aren't any particular exercises in this book "how to" get rich in the sense of what to do for a living or what investments to make. The reader just has to take everything on faith that he/she will magically, through thought and acceptance, get rich. Okay, maybe a lot of people find that hard to believe, but he doesn't advocate sitting in a corner meditating all day either. I would summarize his prescription for getting rich as going about your daily business, but organize your life in such a way that money can flow into it. I have friends who insist that no matter what they do, they just can't get ahead. They know all the reasons why things won't work. Can't find a good job. Employers don't pay enough.
