Publisher's Summary

The Science of Getting Rich is the classic guide to creating wealth through the Law of Attraction. First published in 1910, 100 years later it inspired Rhonda Byrne's best-selling book and movie, The Secret.

According to Wallace D. Wattles, "There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches; once these laws are learned and obeyed by any man, he will get rich with mathematical certainty."

The Science of Getting Rich will guide you in developing a vision, strengthening willpower, cultivating gratitude, and receiving life's abundant gifts.

Praying is NOT Science

Praying, wishing neither faith are sciences. The title of this book is just a marketing strategy. I didn’t see any data, analysis, percentages nor statistics.

Loved the Audiobook

First of all, loved the narrator! I have the written version of the book and have read it last year but this time I used the written book in conjunction with the audiobook and got so much more out of it.

The way the narrator narrates, it’s almost like someone is talking to you or teaching you. I love his voice and emphasis.

Would highly recommend getting this audiobook.

Btw, read it at 1x speed and not faster if you are really looking for a difference in your life.

The Words Of Life Continues

Yes, this is a book for those who are on the journey to self-discovery, and this with a calling to continue the spiritual quest of understanding things in this life. This is apart of a 200-year sharing of the connection we have to the divine and how to apply it to our lives.

It's not about money. It's about what you can do with your life, and that wealth is obtainable. Not from hard work but understanding.

Yes, I'm feeling these old books that need the spirit of the words and I was curried on in our age.

repetitive but not informative

I feel that it was extremely repetitive in the beginning and stressing that's he's going to tell you something. when he got around to telling you the thing, he wasn't all that clear about it, I wish he'd elaborated more on the thing itself rather than creating anticipation.

If you take everyday as a day where you do the most you can and do your best you will win the day. Win more days than you lose and you WIN at life. Focus on what you want and only that. This book was amazing!

Best Narrator!!

The contents of this book are gold! But, the narrator truly can make or break an audiobook. I've tried several versions of this audiobook, and this narrator—Lloyd James— is by far the best! He narrates in a way that feels like he wrote this book, & deeply understands it's wisdom; he's not just reading words off a page. I've read this book on my own, but listening to this audiobook version has helped illuminate ideas that I skimmed over and missed while reading. I cannot say enough good things about this narrator! He so clearly conveys the wisdom contained in this book, and brings so much more meaning to every line!

Interesting

This is basically a behavior modification book. It talks about how to think but with a early 1900’s feel.

Great and Concise

The inner workings of the Law of Attraction and how it actually works in your daily life. Great listen and potentially worth listening to weekly or at least at often as possible. Highly recommended.

Misleading Title

“The Science of Getting Rich” - proceeds to talk nothing of science, math, data, etc.

Summary: Visualize yourself as rich and you’ll become rich.

Best performance possible of a great book

I’ve read this many times, but not for a few years and the performer does an amazing job bringing new life to it for me. He may be the best I’ve heard on any book-the right amount of emotion to convey the ideas with power and interest, as well as a pro recording.

I will look for his other readings and will relisten to this many times. Excellent!!

Fluff and god…

It’s too much about god, it does not have a specific methodology based on science, same bs as many other secrets about making you think something until it becomes clear rather than giving you actual tools or advice in doing so

Best explanation of mindset I've ever read.

Enthralling from start to finish, now I know all I need to get rich, I've read much on the subject previously but after finishing this book it's all clear.

William Shatner narrates

More of a mantra but seems to put me in a money mindset. The narrator is doing a pretty good impression of William Shatner

Relevant today as 112 yrs ago

The language in the book is old fashioned And some of the examples of obtaining wealth are out of touch for today . However, the principles , values and thinking is very relevant today as back then ..... amazing book give your self the time to absorb its Content ! Definitely a must read if you want to advance in wealth .
