"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)

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!
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.

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.Read more ›
