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.

    "horrible book"
    Would you try another book from Wallace D. Wattles and/or Brian Holsopple?

    Wattles is crazy


    Has The Science of Getting Rich turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no but all books from the turn of the century on motivation or inspiration. Hard to believe this book and "as a man thinketh" were the basis of Napoleon Hill's "Law of Succes"


    What didn’t you like about Brian Holsopple’s performance?

    ok, but honestly this book clearly was hard to work with without laughing. If you want to know where all the ideas of "the Secret" came from read this book.


    What character would you cut from The Science of Getting Rich?

    the Author


    Any additional comments?

    no, except do not under any circumstances buy this book. look elsewhere!

    "A normal narrator would be helpful"

    This sounds like a robot... Monotone. It would be lovely to find a reader who is rather normal sounding. You have to get past the weirdness of his voice to get to the message being told.

    A powerful book. The true science of getting rich. Get full understanding of it and I promise as well as Mr. Wattle that it won't fail.

    "Should be titled "The RELIGION of Getting Rich""
    Would you try another book from Wallace D. Wattles and/or Brian Holsopple?

    nope.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Wallace D. Wattles again?

    nope.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The Narration was good. I have no complaints here.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    This book starts off talking about logic and science, but every minute or so, "faith" and "god" were mentioned. There was absolutely nothing scientific or a method that didn't start with "Universal stuff and god". Science? ha! not even close. Awful book.
    If you're religious, maybe you'll get a pleasant "faith building" experience, but i think this book is worthless.

    "Too religious."

    Did not to expect to be preached to when I purchased this book. Basically what the author says is that if you follow the teachings of God/Jesus, you'll get rich. Ugh.

    "Don't Waste Your Time And Money..!"

    The narration was good. But the matter was useless And repetitive. I don't understand why the author can be so much unethical to write this trash just to make a few bucks. Such cheaters should be BANNED or sent to a Black Hole so that they can't come back to earth.

    "Mindset is key to success in all areas of life"

    Great listen with interesting points, just shows how a mindset change alters the way we think and see the world. e.g the concept of becoming rich to fulfil ones potential and give more to others is amazing and a great and positive way to look at it.

    "Awesome narration of an all time great book"
    If you could sum up The Science of Getting Rich in three words, what would they be?

    This book is an awesome book and an all time great however you'll not really get what he is saying if you're not at least in the process of spiritual awakening. When you read this book purely from the ego you will not really get the message, even if you think you did. I read it twice previously and thought I understood its contents. But I have been doing some work on spiritual awakening lately with meditation etc. and when I read the book again I was blown away with how different the message was compared to how I saw it before.


    What does Brian Holsopple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Brilliant narrator. I actually had another audible audio version of this book gotten years ago but had to get this one again by Brian Holsopple because of his brilliant narration of another book - As A Man Thinketh.


    Any additional comments?

    IMO the book's message only opens up to you after spiritually awakening or when you're at least in the process of spiritual awakening and now able to differentiate your real self from your ego.

    "Not recommended"

    Repetitive, lacking substance, a poor buy. Quasi religious dogma. Totally out dated text; this will not make anybody rich, but they may die of boredom.
