Publisher's Summary

The Science of Getting Rich is a book written by the New Thought Movement writer Wallace D. Wattles and published in 1910. It was a major inspiration for Rhonda Byrne's best-selling book and film The Secret (2006). According to USA Today, the text is "divided into 17 short, straight-to-the-point chapters that explain how to overcome mental barriers, and how creation, rather than competition, is the hidden key to wealth attraction."

The Science of Getting Rich preceded similar financial success books such as The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel (1912) and Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (1937). In the 100 years since its publication, it has gone through many editions, and remains popular.

Great!

Great narration for this classic. Easy to listen to and helpful information.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. The fact that I was gifted this book had no influence over my opinion of it

Fantastic version of a classic

This is a great listen that is constantly referenced in podcasts or business books. This version is easy to follow along and the narrator is lively and professorial.

Good start into the Law of attraction.

More on the shiny penny side of LOA but a good way to get people interested. Very text book style but it is an instructional book so thats to be expected.

Good

What an incredible book!

When I first came across this audiobook, I expected to hear things like “pay down your debt”, “invest in this or that”, etc; you know, the kind of advice you’ll hear on tv or read online.

Let me tell you: this is NOT the typical advice you’ll hear on wealth!

This is SUCH a creative production! The concepts described are unique, and they are presented clearly and in a logical format. Furthermore, the narrator did a good job presenting the material for the listener.

The heart of the book impressed me so much that I memorized it, and have included it below (from memory):

“There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates and fills the inner spaces of the universe. A thought, in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.”

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Not a Good Fit For Me

I was given this book to listen to in exchange for a free copy...and unfortunately, it wasn't a great fit for me.
I'm a big believer in 'The Secret'. I've practiced its teachings for eight months and seen a vast improvement in my life already. And although this is along the same lines, incorporating the law of attraction, I didn't appreciate the religious aspects to it.
There is a lot of talk about God and Jesus. Well, maybe not 'a lot' but for someone who isn't a fan of organized religion, it isn't something I wanted to listen to and wouldn't have signed up to review if I'd been aware in the first place.

Religion aside, this is an okay listen. But I've found other books that discuss manifestation to be far better.

Good reinforcement to visualize

I can definitely see how this inspired The Secret. Reinforces many of the same principles and encourages the reader or listener to visualize his or her ultimate goals. Very nice voice that fits the context nicely. Short read (or listen) that doesn’t waste time and gets right to the point.
