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.

    Any additional comments?

    The content is also "timeless." Mr. Wattles perspective and philosophy are spiritually based with meaningful references to assist in producing and attracting wealth.

    "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.

    "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.

    "High level philosophy only"

    It only offers high level philosophy on getting rich but lacks any practical tips. It's similar to saying that the golden rule of success is hard work but then offer no detailed techniques on the topic.

    "superb and still relivant."

    The daddy of all personal growth books , and one that underlines the power of thought and the universe . A lot of personal growth/self help books fall back on Wallace Wattles book and you can understand why . A valuable read even today.

    Story
    "Basic idea, simply put"
    Would you try another book written by Wallace D. Wattles or narrated by Brian Holsopple?

    The narrator was fine, as was the book, really, but somewhat old-fashioned. The subject is nothing new to anyone who has ever heard of the Law of Attraction so while it was probably ground-breaking in its day, its strength now is in its simplicity and no-frills approach.
    So I might try another book by the author but my expectations would not be all that high.


    What was most disappointing about Wallace D. Wattles’s story?

    The references to a god that in my opinion has no place or relevance in such material. It happened enough to make this atheist cringe and squirm.


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

    Nothing, although he read it well


    Could you see The Science of Getting Rich being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Lol


    Any additional comments?

    Easy to understand, this would be a good starting point for anyone who has not previously heard of the Secret or LOA in general.
    Please oh please find me such a book that is unreligious and suitable for atheists.
