The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles

How to Get Rich Fast

Though I would argue vigorously that the purpose of life is not about getting rich but aquiring experiential growth, there's no doubting that the pursuit of material wealth is of great importance to most of us. Being rich allows us choice, and in choice we are able to travel roads that might otherwise be blocked.

In this self-help classic Wallace D Wattles presents the process of growing rich as a science, ie a set ofrules which if followed will produce the desired results as definitely as boiling a kettle or turning your car ignition key.

The step-by-step scientific approach to attracting financial and spiritual wealth

  • This is the 100-year-old book that inspired Rhonda Byrne's bestselling The Secret
  • Explains the precise series of practical steps that, if followed, guarantee prosperity
  • Reveals the secrets that underlie today’s success and prosperity movements

In his bestselling book, Wallace D. Wattles explains that “universal mind” underlies and permeates all creation. Through the process of visualization we can engage the law of attraction--impressing our thoughts upon “formless substance” and bringing the desired object or circumstances into material form. The author emphasizes the critical importance of attitude: only by aligning ourselves with the positive forces of natural law can we gain unlimited access to the creative mind and its abundant rewards.

The Science of Getting Rich holds the secret to how economic and emotional security can be achieved in a practical, imaginative, and noncompetitive way, while maintaining a loving and harmonious relationship with all of life. By living in accordance with the positive principles outlined in this book, we can find our rightful place in the cosmic scheme and create for ourselves an environment in which to grow in wealth, wisdom, and happiness.

“There is a science of getting rich. It is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches. Once a person learns and obeys these laws, he will get rich with mathematical certainty.”
