His most famous work is a book called The Science of Getting Rich, in which he explains how to get rich and live life in all of its abundance.
The Science of Getting Rich is a must-have audiobook for anyone who wants to create wealth and achieve financial independence.
Wattles also wrote The Science Of Being Well and The Science Of Being Great. Both books have gone on to become "must have" classics about how using the mind effectively can bring about excellent health and increased intelligence through the use of proper thinking techniques.

This book is not at all scientific, and asks readers to adopt the creed:
"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imagined by the thought.
A person can form things in this thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created."
The book is great; that's why it's a timeless classic. However, the quality of the recording is extremely poor, and the narrator sounds like he wants to kill himself. I would recommend choosing a different recording.
The narrator and recording were awful
I like this book but...the hearing someone else in the background is anoying. In the Science of Getting Rich Section there is a second person in the back groung who sighs very loudly, or can be heard whispering to someone in the background. This happens 4 times during the Narraters reading. Especially noticable while wearing headphones.
"Get a different version! The narrator is awful!"
While the material is superb and potentially life changing, this performance is horrible! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. He mispronounces words constantly, pauses at the end of the writing on the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible.
"The Science Of Getting Rich" is similar to Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and T.Harv Eker's "Millionaire Mind" materials. Many of the principles overlap or mirror exactly. I recommend reading & listening to them all. Each presents the material in a slightly different way, and by familiarizing yourself with all of them, you will gain greater understanding and insight into the ideas within.
THIS PERFORMANCE IS HORRIBLE! The narrator sounds like a kid in high school, called on in class to read material he is obviously unfamiliar with. His reading is mechanical and word by word, rather than thought by thought. He frequently mispronounces words which he clearly does not understand, he pauses at the end of the page rather than where punctuation indicates, he emphasizes the wrong words in the sentences, and clearly has no understanding of, nor any familiarity with, the material. He misses idioms and quotes, and clearly does not understand what they are, or why they are there. I will avoid this narrator in the future whenever possible and recommend that everyone else do the same.
Yes! Absolutely. It would be like "The Secret." - As long as this "narrator" was not involved in it, it would be great!
Can I get my money back, and buy a different version? Please?
"Review of The Science of Getting Rich"
Think and Grow Rich
Understanding that I am equal to everyone else
This was a very good Trilogy of books. I have learned quite a bit about the power that resides in all of us.
This is an amazing book which will change your outlook on life forever.
"This speaker is the best"
There's many versions of this audio book, however this speaker is the easiest to listen to.
"Old-timely but worth reading"
Valuable information to remember.

You are in control of yourself. Your mind is your most valuable asset. The moral sciences will take you further than almost any other education.
"an essential book to read for any endeavor.."
This program is a must read for understanding the fundamentals of achievement in any endeavor..not just financial success.
This author ranks up there with the great achievement thinkers of the past...and this program adds an additional approach and perspective to the power of thinking and how we all can acquire it...not just for money.
I have listened to it multiple times, and always get inspired, and excited. I keep asking the question..how did this guy come to all of these understandings at this time in history?
This is a must listen?..at least 3×
If he would have killed himself in chapter one
Seem like a guy who could have started a cult.
"Awesome mind opening content"
Loved everything. The reader is a bit boring but amazing book. Highly recommend book for anyone.
To my amazement this book was filled with far more biblical truth than I expected. The title and the text are not as equally yoked in the 21st century as I would have expected. I am well pleased, and I will only be able to recommend this to a select few at a time. life changing books!
