About the Book

As featured in the bestselling book The Secret, here is the landmark guide to wealth creation republished with the classic essay “How to Get What You Want.”Wallace D. Wattles spent a lifetime considering the laws of success as he found them in the work of the world’s great philosophers. He then turned his life effort into this simple, slender book – a volume that he vowed could replace libraries of philosophy, spirituality, and self-help for the purpose of attaining one definite goal: a life of prosperity.Wattles describes a definite science of wealth attraction, built on the foundation of one commanding idea: “There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made…A thought, in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.”In his seventeen short, straight-to-the-point chapters, Wattles shows how to use this idea, how to overcome barriers to its application, and how work with very direct methods that awaken it in your life. He further explains how creation and not competition is the hidden key to wealth attraction, and how your power to get rich uplifts everyone around you.The Science of Getting Rich concludes with Wattle’s rare essay “How to Get Want You Want” – a brilliant refresher of his laws of wealth creation.

About the Author

About the Reviews

At first when I got this book I was annoyed and a little disappointed. First at the brevity of the book. It is under 100 pages, almost like a pamphlet I thought. Then when I went to read it the language was sophisticated! (WHAT!?!haha) Not at all the type of language I'm accustomed to when reading books talking about self help principles (I generally feel self help books employ a very casual tone and language). Those two things right there meant that I left this book sitting on my nightstand while I tore through many other books surrounding wealth creation, and success.

Finally I ran out of those, and in the interim I reluctantly felt I should give this book one more try... I'm SO GLAD I DID! It turns out this book was written in 1910 (woulda helped me had I checked the copyright to begin with-explains the language anyway) OUT OF ALL THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND SUCCESS BOOKS I'VE READ SO FAR, THIS BOOK IS THE BEST, AND THE ONLY ONE I CARRY EVERYWHERE AND REFER TO DAILY. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Mind you this was written BEFORE the term "Law of Attraction" was thrown about with regularity. It's fabulous, and gives a concise and clear modus operandi to achieve your dream life, even if your present situation really sucks. Wallace Wattles reminds us that it is a Certain Way of thinking, and living, that produces with certainty the life we create. I will absolutely buy this for everyone I care about.

*********************************

Summary: Use you faith, life purpose, and vision and you can mold the formless intelligence into riches. God receives delight through us and our endeavors and seeks not lack. Increase is what all women and men seek. You, acting as a center of increase, convey the impression of advancement. People and riches are drawn to this forward movement and abundance. Bring them well-being, love, riches of their own, and you will ensure your work's "use value" is greater than its cash value, which equals advancement.

*********************************

I gave this book a 5star because it has helped me tremendously. This is my second time reading this book and my life has changed with so much richness in it. This book is so life changing if it is read with an understanding of how the Universe really works. Your desires will come to you just as you imagine them. Our minds can create anything we desire in our lives. It's a science that can not fail. If we practice a deep feeling of gratitude uniting ourselves with Devine Intelligence,all things are possible.
