Publisher's Summary

In this program, Denis Waitley narrates the classic book, written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910, which contains the underlying philosophy of how and why to attain true wealth.

When Rhonda Byrne, creator of the global phenomenon The Secret, enlisted Denis Waitley's participation as one of the teachers in both the video and book versions, they both discovered that Wattles' work had profoundly influenced their own beliefs concerning fundamental laws of success, including the law of attraction, the law of increase, and the law of gratitude.

A recognized pioneer in the personal development movement, Denis Waitley is one of the most respected and listened-to voices on high-performance achievement. The author of 18 nonfiction books, his audio album The Psychology of Winning is the all-time best-selling program on self-mastery.

The Science of Getting Rich, narrated by Denis Waitley, is the seminal work by Wallace D. Wattles. With timeless principles leading to material and spiritual wealth, it is as relevant today as it was more than a century ago, when it was first published.

What you will learn about:

  • The right to be rich
  • There is a science of getting rich, like mathematics or physics
  • How riches come to you
  • Thinking and doing things in a certain way
  • The law of attraction
  • Getting into the right business
  • The law of gratitude and the impression of increase

Incredible book but changed from the original

Where does The Science of Getting Rich rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Easily this is one of the most powerful and influential. I will listen to this repeatedly for years.

Any additional comments?

While a great book, I'm very disappointed that Waitley, for reasons of political correctness, repeatedly changed the wording throughout this classic book. While I understand and appreciate that times have changed, it's never, ever cool to rewrite books....especially if you don't specifically mention this in the book description. Such changes make it somewhat difficult to follow along in original versions of the print book. I will likely have to locate another audio version which has not been rewritten so I can study this work in detail.

PLEASE, if you rewrite books, make note of it in the descrdescriptions and don't call it "unabridged".

No kidding. This book actually IS...

No kidding. This book actually IS... "one of the best kept secrets in history". The narrator's voice made for ease of listening. Every chapter built upon the content which preceded it. A foundation of truth was built upon to the very end. Any business person needs to LISTEN to this once a month or once a quarter! Then, DO what you've heard.

Amazing. This one sums up all the other books I've read from "Think and grow rich" to "The master key system" I've enjoyed it greatly and Denis Waitley made a great work here emphasizing and tuning perfectly. Thank you

It's nice book, but I really disliked the music

I really wished there was no cheesy music between every chapter. It was so cheesy and made me nervous. The book is good enough but music really ruining it.

Books on becoming rich, people don't read them.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Science of Getting Rich to be better than the print version?

I really can't tell, because I haven't read the book but I have listened to this book 5X.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There isn't chracters. My favourite is the thinking stuff, that is what it's all about.

Which character – as performed by Denis Waitley – was your favourite?

Denis took me along time not to zone out too, but after the 2nd listen, I really started to adsorb the message.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Thoughts are things.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best bag for your buck books on the internet, the price you pay is small but you may end up with a fortune. People play roulette and throw their money into corporations but for a few pounds you can learn how to make a fortune. Handle with care.

It all makes sense!

Where does The Science of Getting Rich rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This will be hard to beat

What did you like best about this story?

I wondered what book excited Rhonda Byrne so much to cause her understanding and journey. Now I know

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

I was totally moved by what I heard. If only they taught religious instruction the same way as depicted here, as after all, the bible is the oldest self-help book around

Great book

I need it to listen to this book couple times until I managed to get my head around those ideas presented in this book. The last chapter is a summary of the whole book. If you understand English better than I do you can save time going straight to the last chapter.

Fantastic!

This is an amazing book. It contains everything required to be rich. I can see how others have taken the contents and conveyed it in their own words. Yet, somehow, something is not the same.

If you are serious in realising your potential, this is a must have, must listened to over and over.
