Believe and receive!

A great teacher of what it takes to accomplish your purpose, and become rich. Though this may seem like an easy how to process in fact what the author is telling the reader to do is extremely difficult to achieve.

Great way of thinking about getting rich

I love the way this is broken down and how useful it was to me in the sense of realising the power of each and every one of us to attain what we want out of life.

Best brain rewire book ever!

I love this book. It continues to bring to my awareness over and over again the things that I have yet to do to bring me in alignment with infinite abundance. I have grown so much in so many areas of my life because of this book, and I continue to grow every time that I hear it. The most interesting thing about this is the fact that your mind may not allow you to hear most of it so you need to listen to it over and over again until you actually truly feel it and that it's part of you with every inch of your being. By then you will be making the money you want to make. Guaranteed!

Seriously - The best book on wealth ever written

What did you love best about The Science of Getting Rich?

This is the most important book on wealth ever written. I've read a lot of them. I keep coming back to this and doing what it says. Exactly what it says and it works every time.

Very enlightening

Love this book. Third time listening to it. So many use scripture to condemn, love that this uses scripture to empower and enlighten. Also love that it's not just about personal gain, but also about one's motivations behind and the way one goes about getting rich. Great read.

Direct and To The Point

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.

Very thought provoking. Loved it.

Considering that the book was written in 1910, and that some of the examples the author uses to convey his precepts are irrelevant, one feels that what he claims could actually work even in our age. I've read it at least four times and I'm definitely converted. I'm not rich yet, but when I am, I will let you know.

Plain english

If you could sum up The Science of Getting Rich in three words, what would they be?

Can do approach

Have you listened to any of Jim Roberts’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

The Author presents a straightforward solution. It's practical and I'm in no doubt of the merits of the proposals - it works!!
I had it on constant replay and revisit it for time to time as a reminder or to renew my focus but the book presents a can do solution in plain English.
I'm definitely a fan.

Try others first

Not a science of getting rich, in fact not science but theology. For a much better expression of largely the same ideas, without the dogmatic overtones, listen to "The Secret". Not worth the money.

Don't buy this version of the book

Would you try another book written by Wallace D. Wattles or narrated by Jim Roberts?

Written yes, narrated - hell no.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

By being the worst ever

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Good thing was I first listened to the one by Kevin T. Norris first.

Any additional comments?

Please just remove this version, for all other people sake.

Can't Wait To Implement This!

After spending the last 18 months working on my money mindset & creating wealth, this summed everything up minus the fluff.

Nice and simple. A great book!
