    Wallace D. Wattles was an American "New Thought" writer who wrote this amazing little book in 1910. It caused a sensation then, and continues to be popular today. In fact, Rhonda Byrne said that part of her inspriation for her best-selling book and film The Secret came from this book.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It boils everything down to the bare concepts of what it takes to get what you want out of life. Not "5 - 7 easy steps to overnight success" type book but the concrete ideas that perhaps those 'other' books were developed from.


    What other book might you compare The Science of Getting Rich to and why?

    Napoleon HIlls "Outwitting the Devil". They share the concept that being able to focus on the goal is paramount to success. Wattles makes this case succinctly.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy listening to this one when I feel like I need a reminder about what my goals are.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    What would have made The Drunkard's Walk better?

    Edit the book for content suitable for audio. I can listen to theory and ideas... I have to read numbers. The sheer volume of numerical references and statistics made listening to this painful. I will purchase the printed edition as ideas contained here would make it worth the read. When I could bear through the rambling numbers, the end-point was excellent. Couldn't make it through the first couple chapters.


    Has The Drunkard's Walk turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No
